RCLRC Sniper Challenge.
The Racine County Line Rifle Club is bringing back the sniper matches of the past and putting a new more modern twist on them.
The general goal of these matches is to have fun while testing the competitors skill in marksmanship, range estimation, wind reading, as well as use of the gear you bring while under simulated stress. There may be a very small emphasis on field craft in some of the stages.
The matches are designed to bring shooters out of their comfort zone in a safe and controlled environment while having fun at the same time.
NOTE: Expect some physical activity on at least 1 stage.
These matches are open to anyone who has the required gear listed below. Junior shooters must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Junior shooters do not pay match fees.
Although the emphasis is on precision shooting some stages may require a separate long gun (carbine or shotgun) or a pistol. If this is the case it will be listed in the match program.
Shooters will be required to carry all their gear with them throughout the day.
There may be stages where you must range your targets using only your scope and the mathematical formula required. The target dimensions will be given to you on these stages. (If you can not do this the distances will be provided but you will be deducted points from your score.)
Most of the targets will be steel and range from 200 to 700 yards.
Rifle with sling capable of at least 1MOA accuracy, with a scope that has adjustable target turrets and/or a bdc style reticle. (No rifles with a muzzle energy over 9000ftlbs allowed)
70 rounds of quality ammo with a muzzle velocity under 3100 fps. (No amour piercing, steel core, tracers, or incendiary ammo allowed)
Ear and eye protection.
Appropriate clothing as we will shoot rain or shine.
Ballistic data on the rifle/ammo you will be using.
Some sort of pack to carry your gear and soft case/drag bag for the rifle.
Pen or pencil and paper.
ECI (empty chamber indicator
Rear squeeze type bag
Since safety is the number one goal we will always be following the 4 firearm safety rules.
1. Treat all guns as if they are always loaded
2. Never let your muzzle cross anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you made a decision to shoot
4. Know your target and what's beyond
We will also be using ECI's until instructed to load your weapon. (There maybe exceptions to this if there is a pistol or other long gun stage)
Shooters or spectators will be required to sign a liability release form.
Admin/registration will start 1 hour before match time and end before the mandatory shooter/safety brief.
These are STRICTLY FUN matches at this time and there will be no prizes awarded. If there is enough interest going forward that could change though.
