Is there a rifle match being ran by Van Treek this Sat at the club?

According to my RCLRC newsletter: yes. Van Treck is running a rifle match Oct. 1 and Dave C. is running a Sniper Match on Oct 2.

One was the "hunters" match. It's shot at 200 yards, why I don't know the average distance for a deer kill in Wisconsin is something like 70-75 yards. I was thnking about shooting it last year till I found out I couldn't use my deer guns. Actually the only deer gun I could hve used would have been the opne that I use the least, my savage 111 in 06. If you use say an SKS as yer primary rifle, you still couldn't use it in the "hunters" match. Kinda turned me off to the match which started as a fun match and it didn't matter wht gun you used as long as it was yer hunting rifle.


The other one was the sniper match and I wouldn't exactly call it a sniper match. No unknown distance shooting at all. Everything is shot at 300 and 600 yards. I worked the pits for it my first year in the club. Other then a couple nice AR10s it wasn't anything spectacular and was kinda disapointing. It could be a really good match if the right people put the COF together and actually worked in the need to actually do and work sniping related skills. But it's basicly shooting F-class at a highpower match execpt you get a couple shoot/no shoot targets, and targets are only exposed for a couple seconds and you have one mover stage, but the movers don't move all that far. Anyway it could be better and more challenging I think.

Key word is "match". It's for "snipers", as the targets aren't 4' wide bullseyes.

Yeah, you're right: it's F-class with s/ns and a few moving targets. From what I've heard, it's open to all, but most shooters are MIL/LEO with their spotters.

I was hoping that we were gonna have AO ready for this one. Maybe I'll make her go watch while I'm working.

When I worked it there were two military and 3 LEO guys, the rest of them were all club highpower shooters. Our facility really isn't set up for what I would consider a propper sniper match.

The last straglers I saw leaving were nowhere near what I'd consider milleo; unless they've really relaxed the apperance regulations
