Since it has been made clear that only a certain echelon of shooter and equipment are welcome at KO2M events, this may be an interesting alternative:

Nightforce ELR Steel ChallengeNight Force ELR at Q Creek
Match starts: June 15, 2019 @ 8:00 AM · Match ends: June 16, 2019 @ 5:00 PM
po box 2850
Mills, WY 82644
We have changed the format of the match this year in order to capture new shooters to this venue. The format will be long range hunting and ELR friendly. There will be two classes Precision Hunting and Open gun. Hunting will need to abide by Idaho State hunting regulations and the rifle with everything attached cannot weigh over 16 pounds. Open guns have no upper limit. There will be a little hiking but every shooting area is APA accessible.
The shooting positions will all be prone (field prone) in natural terrain. Scoring and target engagement will be 2-1 scoring for first and second round hits. The competitor will be allowed two attempts at each target. Once the target is hit the target will be considered dead or neutralized and the competitor will move to the next target. Stages will have up to 4 targets so max round count per stage would be 8 and minimum would be 4 with 3 minutes to shoot so single shot, top loader, heavy caliber and barrel friendly. Calibers up to 416 Barrett and copper solid bullets will be allowed.

This match is a combined effort from Scott Satterlee and Tad Anderson from Q Creek both solid match directors, Hunters, competitive shooters and friends teaming up to make this the best event possible. We have been running high quality matches since 2010 and registration typically fills and we typically get over 100 competitors at every match. We are going to cap registration at 160 this year.

There have been a few extended or extreme long range matches in the past but have been relatively low attendance matches. Q Creek Ranch offers a venue where we can host 140 shooters and engage targets out to 2,100 yards from multiple areas. The round count for this match will be under 160 and we will have over 70 pieces of steel for competitors to engage. Each piece of steel will have a target hit indicator attached either a magneto speed or IRIS system. The stages will be scenario based and be 100 percent applicable to long range employment at a realistic level.

signed up as soon as it opened. I hope it's as fun as it sounds. This will be my first ELR experience at a match. Plenty out to 1200 but the extended ranges will be a new journey altogether. Hope to see some other hide members out there with me.
