This match is not an officially sanctioned USRA-IR50/50 match
but is similar in rules and requirements. IR 50/50 is a bench rest match
shot with scoped .22LR rifles at either 50 meters or 50 yards. At Sanners
our matches are shot at 50 yards. The 25 targets on each score sheet are
shot within 30 minutes. One shot per target square is allowed. Sighting
shots are taken as needed. Three relays (one target sheet each) are shot per
match for a total of 75 shots for record. We break down our classes into
Sporter, 10.5lb, and 13.5lb – see below.

Sanner’s Lake IR5050-style Rimfire Benchrest Match Report
17 October 2021
Legitimate autumn weather finally showed up in Southern Maryland as brisk and chilly breezes made for challenging conditions at the October IR5050 match at Sanner’s Lake. The autumn gusts didn’t stop Greg Banta and his Vudoo V-22S from putting together an excellent 249-11X on his first string, though, taking the high individual score with ease. And while his subsequent strings didn’t quite match that score, Greg and his Vudoo did well enough to take high combined score with a strong 737-33X. Meanwhile, Jeff Potts kept nipping at Greg’s heels with a super 243-3X individual and 705-9X combined, cresting the magic 700 mark and cruising into second place combined. See all the scores and a picture from the match below.
Thanks to all of our regular shooters and also the newcomers who came out to the range this year to support our rimfire matches. Keep an eye on the Sanner’s Lake website calendar for next year’s schedule...in the meantime, give your rifle a coat of oil, perhaps tear it down and tune it up, and we’ll catch you at the range next year!
