to wooden-stocked long guns used in military service by any nation prior to
1961. Iron sights and/or peeps acceptable as long as representative of a
standard service configuration. No scopes or optics of any
kind. Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94,
Thompsons, Garands, M1 Carbines, Trench Guns (slugs only) and the ever-popular
Matchlock are all good candidates. As long as it was standard military
issue. You wanna shoot your civil war musket and try to obscure the targets
for the rest of us? Fine, as long as you can load and shoot 10 times in
And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser. Match Director has final say! Loaner rifles may be provided with advance notice.
Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – August 2022
Beautiful weather brought a crowd of vintage rifle shooters to the August Woodstock match at Sanner’s Lake, enough for two relays in fact...and along with the great weather came great scores! Jonathan Ramsey and his Schmidt–Rubin once again emerged at the top of the heap, tallying an ever-increasing set of scores to take the top combined score with a superb 293-6X. In the battle for second place Cody Moore and his Garand put together an excellent 276-4X combined score to squeak ahead of Paul Stephens and his K31 notching a 272-3X. Further down the list, special recognition goes to Greg Banta and his 91/30 Mosin, scoring by far the highest individual and combined scores that a Mosin has ever tallied at a Woodstock match, proving that a decent Mosin shooting well-crafted reloaded ammunition can keep pace with any of the traditional Garands and other classic vintage battle rifles! See all the scores and details below. Thanks to everybody who blew off their house and lawn chores and made it to the range on a beautiful August afternoon to sling lead downrange. The next Woodstock match will be on September 15th and the weather should only get better from here. See you there!
