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
2 June 2019
It was a warm, breezy, but reasonably pleasant afternoon and a full relay of eight shooters loaded up the benches for the June IR5050-style match at Sanner’s Lake. The usual bunch of benchrest buffs were there along with several new competitors testing themselves and their rifles under match conditions. It was a tight race for the top in the combined score category but after a slow start Mark S squeaked into first place by just one point with a 710-16X. Joe Mu was hot on his heels with an amazingly consistent set of three strings (overall spread of just two points, under breezy conditions no less!) to take second place with a 709-12X, while Jake S bookended his second string lapse with two matching 235’s to grab third place with a 688-10X. In the individual score category, Mark’s Anschutz took the top two spots but Dave Harrell and his 10/22 were right in the mix grabbing third place with an outstanding 238-5X and missing second place by just one bullseye! All the detailed results are listed in the match report. Thanks to everybody for coming out and filling up the benches, and we hope to see everyone back for the next match on July 7th. See you then!
