  • 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 hosed myself down with bug spray right before the match, and it paid off, I only had one bite on my left arm. Also helped that I was wearing a long sleeve shirt.

      • LOL, I got away unscaved. bug spray, long sleeve shirt (with hood) and pants for the win. HEHEHE, in this new competition does the most bites win or the least?

        BTW does anyone know Dennis that was on squad 5? does he have a SN on here? I was supposed to exchange contact info with him before we left and I forgot.

        • August 22-24 Sporting Rifle Team Match Reminder

          Just a reminder to all competitors regarding ammunition restrictions for this match:

          "In order to prevent target damage and wildfire hazard, SRM rule 2.2 prohibits steel core, steel jacketed, armor piercing, incendiary or tracer bullets. Since AR15 ammunition with these characteristic is commonly available, shooters should expect inspection and/or magnet testing of their ammo. Shooters should magnet test their own ammo prior to attending the match."

          We still have a few team slots available. If interested check the info here: The NRA Whittington Center Sporting Rifle Match

            • Is there going to be a "sight-in" practice on this Friday? Or only the regular early morning sight in on Saturday morning before the team match?

                  • I want to shout out a sincere THANK YOU to Mr. Kolar and his crew for putting on this match! Great fun trying to hit those targets on stage 4 with an AR15... I nearly emptied a 30 round mag trying to hit them...

                    Sounds like this is going to become an annual thing!

                        • I had a great time yesterday, thanks for the opportunity. Couldn't have asked for better weather and about 4 trillion fewer mosquitos than last month too!

                          • could not agree more.... nice and overcast in the AM, not too hot, and yes the mozzies seem to be (mostly) gone.
                            Gonna be a long wait till next year...

                            • The match was great, and the weather was perfect. The morning clouds didn't bring any rain, the afternoon wasn't too hot, and the bugs weren't biting. Who can complain about that? I really thought it was going to rain based on the weather the night before, and was picturing a day spent laying in the mud. Fortunately it turned out really nice.

                              Unfortunately my duties at work keep me from making it to very many matches (a graveyard/weekend work schedule), and this was my first time at the Raton match. I really liked the match setup, and will definitely try to make it down there again whenever my schedule allows.

                                          • The latest target chart and rules are now up on the Sporting Rifle Match website. The target chart has changed substantially from the prior version. The only rule change is the reduced muzzle velocity limit of 3100 FPS for 2017. It will change to 3000 FPS in 2018.

                                            The results from the Feb match are available at https://thunderbeastarms.com/forum/f...s-competition/ or through a link on the SRM website that takes you to the same place. This is how results will be posted going forward. Typically they will be available within 48 hours of the match unless I miss the match and Mike has to mail the score sheets to me. In that case, it will probably take 5 days or so.
