IR 50/50 Rimfire Bench Rest Match

This match is not an officially sanctioned IR5050 match but is similar in rules and requirements.  IR5050 is a bench rest match shot with scoped .22LR rifles at either 50 meters or 50 yards.  At SLSC our matches are shot at 50 yards.  There are 25 targets on each score sheet and all 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.  This is a "run what you brung" style match so we do not break down our rifles into classes; everybody shoots in what is essentially the "unlimited" class.  That being said, we do take note your rifle make and model so if you manage to out-shoot that guy with a slick custom action using your bone stock 10/22 you'll get special recognition in the match report!

Sanner’s Lake IR5050 Rimfire Benchrest Match Report

6 August 2023


Several new faces joined the regulars at the range for the August IR5050-style match at Sanner’s Lake, and in spite of the heat and occasionally gusty winds the scores were impressive from top to bottom!  Greg Banta and his Vudoo once again showed everyone how it’s done, setting a new SLSC range record with a high combined score of 747-46X and also equaling his previous best individual string with an outstanding 250-18X, also a range record.  Congrats to Greg!  Andy Amber kept the heat on the entire time, though, coming in second in the combined category shooting an excellent 737-30X with his Turbo Custom rifle and slick coaxial rest.  See all the scores, pictures, and other details in the match reports link below. 

Our next match will be on September 3rd; come on out and see if you can break some range records!
