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
4 October 2020
It was another beautiful day at the range and five shooters made it out to put their rimfire rifles (and themselves) to the test to see what kinds of scores they could tally at the October IR5050-style benchrest match at Sanner’s Lake. Two new shooters, Jeff Potts and Patrick O’Mara, joined the regular shooters on the line and notched up some decent scores for their first time out. Now it’s just a matter of practice (= time) and equipment (= money) to see how quickly they’ll climb up the scoreboard! See a summary of all the scores below.
Thanks to everybody for making it out to the range this year to support our rimfire matches at Sanners. We’ll pick it up again next year, so be sure to keep an eye on the club calendar for the 2021 match schedule!
