  • 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.

                    • The annual 2-day Sporting Rifle Team Match is coming up on August 19 and 20. This match is great fun, but limited to 36 teams. Details about the match and registration info are available at the Sporting Rifle Match Webpage.

                      There is no cost to register - fees are paid at the match. Currently there is still plenty of space available.

                                • No I was being lazy , the stage was already set up from the carbine match the day before and was the least amount of work to get up and running .

                                  No chance in hell of a 6 showing up until a .7 BC 140 grain bullet shows up and by then there will be a .8 BC 6.5 so it still won't happen .

                                    It was a good idea! As Mike would say "we're doing this like we don't know what to expect." When I deployed my burrito for a front rest on the can, I didn't know what to expect!

                                    • New Target Chart up on the SRM website.
                                      Still have space in the 8/20-21 team match.
                                      Results for 8/6 SRM delayed due to the weather chaos at the end of the day Sunday, but we will get them up as soon as we can.
