    This Saturday = 10 June 17. Gate opens at noon for set-up, sighting-in, etc.

    Match starts at 1PM. Bring your scoped rimfire rifle and give it a try. It's one of the more challenging shooting matches...but also one of the most fun!



    A rimfire silhouette match consists of 40 shots fired at steel silhouette targets at four distances while standing unsupported using a scoped .22LR rifle. The course of fire consists of two strings of five targets in a row at the following distances: chickens at 40 meters; pigs at 60 meters; turkeys at 77 meters and rams at 100 meters for a total of 40 targets. Targets are shot in order from left to right, one shot per target. If a target is missed then the next shot is taken at the next target. Targets must be completely knocked off their stand to count! No extra shots or make-ups are allowed. Any target hit out of order is considered a miss. Each string of five targets lasts 2.5 minutes, with a minimum of 30 seconds between strings.

    What to bring: Scoped rimfire rifle, bolt action or semi-auto are typical. Bring your sighting dope for 40, 60 , 77 and 100 meters if you have it. Or you can just wing it! A single 5 round magazine is sufficient but two magazines is quicker if you prefer. Single loading is fine too. You'll need a minimum 40 rounds plus extra ammo for sighting in.
