Rod & Gun Club

ABOUT Rimfire Sniper:

This match is based on the premise that the ballistics of a .308 Winchester round is nearly identical to the .22 Long Rifle round, at one quarter scale. Therefore all parts of this match are styled after a full-bore sniper match, just at 25%, using targets that are 1/4 sized, at 1/4 the range of the 800 yard typical range of the .308Win

This match is fired from the prone (or sitting, although not recommended) at unknown ranges out to 200 yards. The range to targets will be provided, upon request, if the shooter requires. There will be a total of ten targets scattered across the range, and each shooter will have two shots to strike the steel targets. First round hit is worth 10 points, second round is 5 points. Shooters will need their range 'dope,' or the bullet drop for that ammunition in their rifle from 50 - 200 yards (usually at 50 yard increments). Target Turrets can be a great help in adjusting for the range to the target, but many shooters have been successful without them. The bullet drop can vary greatly even from different brands of ammo in a particular rifle, due to velocity and bullet weight. Please verify the ammo you plan on using, and have it written down.
