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.
Current Match Report
IR5050-style Rimfire Benchrest Match Report
It was another toasty day at the range but that didn’t stop a full relay of eight shooters from showing up and filling the benches for the August IR5050-style benchrest match at Sanner’s Lake. Once again we had several new shooters giving the sport a try but judging from their scores it appears they knew what they were doing!
Pat F and Dick C were engaged in a tight battle for second place in the combined score category behind Mark S but when the smoke cleared it was Dick’s 642-4X grabbing the silver by just one point over Pat’s 641-8X. In the individual score category, Pat and Dick once again battled it out behind Mark, but this time Pat’s 224-6X took fourth place by just one point over Dick’s 223-2X. All the detailed results are listed in the match report.
Thanks to everybody for coming out and filling up the benches! Hope to see everyone back for the next match on September 1st...see you then!
