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 October 2019
Another full relay of shooters took advantage of an overcast but very pleasant October day to fill up the benches at the October IR5050-style benchrest match at Sanner’s Lake. Three new competitors joined the veterans this month and most everybody came away with decent (and beyond) scores so hopefully they’ll be back for more!
The race for the top combined score was tight across the board but in the end Anthony K and his Custom 10/22 took first place with an excellent 681-11X. Pat F has been watching his scores rise all year with his Savage MK2 and blasted his way into second place combined with a solid 671-12X, while Dick C held fast with his 10/22 and kept them right down the middle to take third place combined with a 668-10X.
The race for high individual score was similarly tight with the top ten scores separated by only seven points... the tie-breaker rules had to be exercised quite a bit! Once again it was Anthony K and his Custom 10/22 taking first with a 229-6X, his X-count the only thing separating him from Frank T who notched a 229-1X. And Dick C was once again in contention, taking third with a 228-6X. See all of the scores in the match report and some match pictures below.
Thanks to everybody for joining us at the last match of the year and keeping the turnout strong over the last several matches. Be sure to wipe down your rifles before you put them away for the winter and start working up that letter to Santa for all the precision rimfire goodies you’ll need to set new records in 2020!
