Rimfire Silhouette

A Rimfire (also called small bore) Silhouette Match consists of shooting a total of 40 steel silhouette targets, at various distances, while standing using a scoped rimfire rifle. Alternatively, an Egg Challenge may be run, in which all targets are replaced with steel eggs and fired from a seated position. Typically rifles used are either bolt-action or semi-auto. It is very helpful to have your rifle sighting info for 40, 60, 77 and 100 meters prior to the match. Sighting shots are not allowed during the match; however, typically a 20 minute sighting-in period is offered prior to the match.  The match at SLSC is an unofficial match run in accordance with the NRA Rifle Silhouette rules.

Latest Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Rimfire Silhouette Match Report -  September 2022

A light turnout on an otherwise beautiful day but the eggs were cooking and the match came right down to the wire with just a single steel egg spelling the difference when the kitchen timer beeped for the last time!  After clearing all of the 100m eggs, Greg Banta thought the match would be over-easy but then out of nowhere three 77m eggs in a row were left un-dropped and defeat was snatched from the jaws of victory!  There’s no predicting how the eggs will fall in this match, which is what makes it such a challenge.
