October 27th .22 LR Rimfire Precision Rifle Match

This month’s Dynamic Short Course Precision Rifle Match will be for .22 LR Rimfire Rifles only and will feature all types of stages including paper, steel, more steel, and other fun. No .22 Magnum allowed. This match will include high precision, shooting positions, barricades, movement and did I mention fun?! This is a great opportunity to break out that .22 you have and enjoy some inexpensive fun!

This rifle match will be run 100% on the VCGHC main Rifle Range. Maximum range will be 325yards, though most points stages will be 25-200 yards. This will be a very dynamic match modeled after and borrowing from the popular NRL/PRS style .22 matches plus other style stages that will challenge new and seasoned competitors alike. Minors are welcomed, but must be accompanied by an adult parent or legal guardian.

Where:
Volusia County Gun and Hunt Club
4645 E. SR 44
New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168

More Information for October 27th .22 LR Rimfire Precision Rifle Match

Here are some details for those of you who might be thinking about coming out and shooting this month.

• .22 Long Rifle rimfire rifles only. No .22 Magnum. No pistols.
• This means you can bring your Ruger 10/22, other semis or your bolt gun. You can bring a single shot, but you will be placed at a severe disadvantage due to the nature of this match. In fact, it will be helpful to have a second magazine for your rifle.
• I recommend using standard velocity (1070 fps or less) ammunition due to the typically better results at long distances, but come with what you have. This will be a fun learning experience for us all.
• The mention of 325 yards has concerned some people. 325 yards is a l-o-n-g way for a .22 rimfire and I will only use this distance on one stage with appropriately sized targets. Yes, it will be a challenge, but it is doable and will be fun for those that have never shot this distance with their .22 before.
• Most targets will be 25-200 yards. Targets will be dynamic or static, steel or paper.
• This is not a bench rest match and will include positional shooting and shooting on and over barricades. There will also be some movement stages.
• Juniors will be accommodated as will those with physical challenges.
• Minors/juniors (under 16) are welcomed, but must exhibit proficiency and be accompanied by an adult parent or legal guardian.
• If you have a chamber flag for your rifle, bring it. If not, see me before we begin to get one, as chamber flags are a required piece of safety equipment.

PROSPECTIVE NEW MATCH SHOOTERS:
• If you have not shot past 50 yards with your .22, do not be intimidated. I recommend that you download a ballistic solution/drop chart from JBM Ballistics or similar site so that you know what your bullet will do at longer distances.
• For those that have ballistic apps on their phone/computer, look up the pre-loaded information under Loads, .22 LR. Most of your common and match .22 loads are already in there and the drop charts are very accurate.
• I will have ballistics charts with me for many of the standard .22 LR loads.
• It is recommended (but not required) that you have a good scope on your rifle, as seeing small targets at distance is difficult and this match is designed around their use. Unless you are well seasoned at shooting long distances with iron sights you will be at a severe disadvantage without a scope.
• There will be many (most) stages inside of 100 yards and all targets and stages are doable, so do not be scared away by the format or the challenge. This is intended to be fun and is new for many.
• If you have them, bring rear bags and bipods for your rifle as they are helpful. A mat or blanket is also helpful, as there will be some prone shooting.
• Lastly, you will find that we are a friendly bunch and many of us are doing this for the first time too. If you are on the fence, come out and shoot with us!

This match will include high precision, shooting positions, barricades, movement and did I mention fun?! This is a great opportunity to break out that .22 you have and enjoy some inexpensive fun!

Round Count: Roughly 100 rounds. I’m not positive, as I haven’t finished the Course of Fire yet. Bring enough.

Please have some more of these. We shoot prs style .22 events once a month at my home range. Guys will love shooting 300 yards. I will be down several times this winter to visit my mother. I would organize my travels around an event like this.

I don't have the proper gun for this, but it would sure be a hoot to try.

@8pointer

Dan? Oh Dan....
Oddly I've been thikning about a 22. Dad is as excited about JTAC as I am, but I know he'd enjoy a 22 probably more than anything. Wish he had a place he could take a KYL target row and play where he lives.....might just get him a RPR 22 and 'borrow' it for these matches!

Mike you are a friggin enabler

That's a great riding hull is that the 22 or 24?. Have a friend who put a tower on his down in Naples it's a huge tradeoff in performance.....warn you buddy if he gets tower-itis to go sea trial one equipped.....it's a pig he's messed with all different props still a plow even with 250.

I've had a half dozen of them over the years. Haven't owned one since 97.
It would be a good reason to buy one though...

@8pointer This right here is how purchasing mentorship works.
😁😁
My buddy is selling his Barker with Yammy 350 full tower dual controls.....only wants about $110k for it you should grab it!

The protoge becomes the master.....that didn't take long.

No chance of a tower or T-Top going on this. It's parked in the 3rd bay of his garage.
This has the Merc 300 racing 4-stroke on it. He's helping the builder get numbers for future builds.

The 26 footer I was on Thursday worked fine with a complete tower. However, it's longer, wider and much deeper, even though it's also a bay boat.

Now, about that RPR rimfire?

300 yds with a rimfire is tough.
I should see what my Annie will do at that range.

This is at 50yds using RWS.
5 shot groups

The one and only time I ever shot it at 100 with zero detectable winds.

I need to try it again.

That would definitely eat into your score, lol. FWIW, I shoot with a basic salvage mk2 with laminated stock. But it is mag fed.
