Will my rifle work for mid-range?
The answer to this question is generally yes, however there are a couple of general guidelines.
- Do not shoot Varmit or hunting bullets use only match bullets.
- If shooting M16/AR-15 do not use M193 or M855 ammo.
- If using a scope make sure your scope has enough elevation for 600 yards. Depending on load and cartridge this could take as much as 15 MOA.
Classification: All matches to be run as NRA approved matches. Scores will count toward NRA classification.
General Information: Competitors will perform scoring, pit, firing, and other duties, as assigned.
