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

Sanner’s Lake IR5050-style Rimfire Benchrest Match Report
5 June 2022
A beautiful but breezy day brought out a nearly-full firing line of competitors testing their rimfire benchrest skills at the June IR5050 match at Sanner’s Lake. Greg Banta used his wind reading skills to good effect, keeping the bullets flying from his Vudoo V-22S arcing towards the ten ring more often than not to take the combined score win with a superb 738-30X, with his last string notching a nearly-perfect 249-12X to take the individual win as well, as he edges ever closer to the elusive perfect 250. Likewise Jeff Potts and his custom CZ 457 worked with the wind to put together a string of very consistent scores in the 230’s to take second place with a strong 700-22X. Further down the ladder the competition remained tight even as the persistently painful gusts kept blowing those little 22LR bullets around! See all the scores and details below.
Thanks to everyone for shirking their household duties and making a go of it at the range. Next match is on July 3rd, and what better way is there to celebrate the birth of our country with some rimfire benchrest action? See you there!
