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
6 September 2020
A decent turnout of shooters shrugged off the glorious weather and pried themselves away from their Labor Day weekend family duties and made it to the range for the September IR5050-style benchrest match at Sanner’s Lake. Along with our usual competitors, Greg Banta joined us on the line and brought his slick Vudoo rifle to see what it could do in competition off the bench.
The competition was fierce, with over half the scores above 230, a first for this match and indicative of how good the rifles and shooters have become! See a summary of all the scores in the match report and check out a picture below. Check out how close the battle was for second and third place...just a point here or there made all the difference!
Thanks to everybody for making it out to the range on a beautiful holiday weekend and putting down seriously good scores across the board. The last match of the year is on October 4th, see you there!
