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.
