CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Match

Samuel Payne is the only competitor to ever fire a perfect score of 600 in the Rimfire Sporter Match

The CMP National Rimfire Sporter Match offers shooters a recreation oriented competition where they use smallbore  sporter rifles (plinking and small game rimfire rifles) commonly owned by almost all gun enthusiasts. This is a unique match where all you need is a rifle and ammo. The Rimfire Sporter course of fire is challenging, new shooters can successfully complete it while experienced shooters find it uniquely challenging. Firing is done at 50 and 25 yards on a target with a 1.78" ten-ring and an 18" outer one-ring. The target is simple enough for a beginner to hit, yet challenging enough that only one competitor in the history of the match has ever fired a perfect 600x600 score. See below for More Info and our upcoming matches. Additional info can be found on the in this CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Guide and on the  CMP Sporter Rifle website.

 Sanner’s Lake CMP Rimfire Sporter Match Report

9 April 2022

A crisp and chilly early April day that felt more like early March didn’t deter five shooters from making it out to Sanner’s Lake for the first rimfire sporter match of the year!  Quite a few new faces were present amongst the regulars on the line but you wouldn’t know it from the scores which were strong from top to bottom.  And the scores should only get better with time considering some of the newcomers were still sorting out their positions and figuring out the correct target at which to aim!  In any event, when the smoke cleared, a good time was had by all, and hopefully most will be back for the next match.  See all the scores and some pictures from the match below.  

Thanks to all who made it out to the range to begin the shooting year with a decent turnout and strong scores!  The next match will be on 14 May, same time and place.  See you then!
