  • Monthly Sporting Rifle match RATON NM

    I thought I posted this here last year, but I couldn't find the thread to update it. The first match of 2006 is coming up in two weeks, Feb 5th.

    The
    Sporting Rifle Match
    "First Sunday JAN-SEPT"
    NRA Whittington Center, Raton, NM


    Quote:

    PURPOSE
    The "Sporting Rifle Match" at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton NM is designed to test a rifleman's skills shooting small targets from approximately 175 to 700 yards in the natural terrain, with what he can carry throughout the course. (The "Sporting Rifle Match" has nothing to do with NRA High Power "Sporting Rifle" class.)

    The match format is 10 stages spread over a 2 mile distance. Each stage has 6 targets at varying distances to be engaged with only one shot each. Target distances are known to the shooter. There is no time limit, but the shooter must finish within a reasonable period of time. No "sighter shots" allowed. Score is total number of hits out of 60 possible. No one has shot a perfect score, yet.

    Match entry is $25. There is partial cash payback to winner(s) based on the match turnout. The balance of fees goes to the NRA WC.

    Typical equipment used includes: a rifle capable of 1 MOA accuracy; rifle optics allowing precise hold-over for small targets from 175 - 700 yards; binoculars to spot for other shooters; and a backpack to carry water, ammunition, and a couple power bars.

    SCHEDULE
    Each match takes place on Sunday.
    SATURDAY 1100-1200: Range Officers and anyone else willing to help, show up to set, repair, and paint targets.
    SATURDAY 1400-1500: Sight-in stage open for use after target work is completed.
    SATURDAY 1700: Sight-in stage closes for the day, range is locked.

    SUNDAY 0700: Sight-in stage opens for approx 30 minutes
    SUNDAY 0730: Shooters' meeting, and match begins.
    SUNDAY 1300-1400: Match finishes, payout to winners, and targets are put down.

    Match cancellations will be announced on this web page ASAP before the match, ideally by Friday morning, but it could be as late as Saturday afternoon for a last-minute emergency. So... CHECK THIS WEB PAGE FOR POSSIBLE CANCELLATION ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE LEAVING.

    I had a blast, thanks for having us out and the hospitality. I will be back out this year. Great group of guys and gals. I learned some new excuses and will be using them in the future. It was a pleasure meeting all the regulars and especially Tom and Barry who we shot with, you guys made shooting in the heat a blast. We made it back in about 10 hours. Anybody see the results yet?

                The pleasure was all mine. Some of us are coming back for the September match, I think.

                  That may not be the case. Myself and one other guy on our squad were totaled but do not show on the results. I am sure they just got missed when they entered them.

                      Correction, my name is not even on the list. Yours is on there but with no score. At least you are listed.

                          Waiting on the website to be updated , both scores slipped through some how . Summer is a busy time and since the webmaster is less than 2 weeks from running a national level match it may take a while .

                            No big deal. I looked back at my notebook for the match as i was keeping track of misses. I shot a 50. It is my best score at that match so far.

                                  Big thanks to Mike and Chuck for putting on the match. Also thanks to everyone who helps to put up and take down the steel. It was a lot of fun and very challenging as usual.

                                    Great shooting Jessie!! I enjoyed listening to steel ringing.
                                    You are on fire and it was fun watching you shoot.
                                    Good times as always.

                                        If I was a betting man, I'd say it won't be long until Jessie matches or sets a course record there. She's always right there at the top with 56's and 57's....

                                                Thanks for the Range Card rmfield! After three matches, I think I know where all the targets are now. All I have to do now is shoot at the correct target, and make sure I dial the correct dope.
