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
10 August 2019
A nice summer day, warm but not too humid, perfect conditions for a match! No new shooters this month but several veterans made it to the range and most saw improvements in their scores across the board. Mark S started strong with a pair of 100-8X scores during the prone stages but saw his chance at a personal best evaporate during the standing stages. Nonetheless his total score of 582-27X was good enough for first place. Following him was Chris C with his bolt action rifle taking second place with a strong 565-11X, while Pat F continues to see his scores improving with every match, finishing third with an excellent 510-6X. Detailed scores are listed in the August Match report. The Sanners calendar shows the next match is on 21 September...see you then!
