Shooters News for the Minn Area - Oct 5, 2012

The Week Ahead

Last Chance!
Ok, Guys and Gals, the Last Rifle match of the season will be held this weekend at Gopher Rifle and Revolver Club.  Just a few miles north of the Twin Cities near Harris, Mn,  Gopher will be hosting a "Full Bore" match on Saturday, Oct 6th. This match will be a prone match, consisting of 15 shots for record with sighters, to be shot from the 300,600, 800, and the 1000 yd line.  Any match or service rifle is allowed, but the caliber used must be .223 or .308.  Note: this caliber rule does not apply to F-Class.  Shooters will fire "Two to a Mound" where the two shooters on the line at each point alternate firing and must get the shot off within 45 seconds after their turn starts.  For those who haven't shot this way, let me tell you it is a fun way to shoot a match.  You must make your wind call before each shot and can't just "chase the spotter" like many of us do all the time.  This is a great way to learn to proficiently read the wind. This match is open to F-class shooters.
 Sunday, Oct 7th, the format changes to a "Long Range course of fire". This is basically an "over the course' with both slow fire stages and Rapid fire stages starting at the 200 yd line and finishes with 20 slow fire shots from the 1000 yd line.
   There will be "Special awards for Sunday’s match; High Service Rifle and High Vintage Military Rifle (Springfield, Mauser, Swedish Mauser etc. NO Optics)"  
Squading for both day's matches starts at 0800hrs and first shots down range at 0900hrs.
