Save the date: Sunday, June 3rd

NVFAC will be hosting it's inaugural Know Your Limits 22 Rimfire - 50 yard - Precision Rifle Match

Location: Clark County Shooting Complex - Education Center

More info to follow

Future dates will be July 1, August 5, September 2

Here are the rules (these are work in progress and will change as we see the interest level)

Targets are 8 swinging steel targets at 50 yards, ranging in size from 2” diameter to ¼” diameter in ¼” increments. You have 8 rounds MAXIMUM to score as much as you can.

Targets must be shot in order, largest to smallest. Target must visibly “swing” to be counted as a hit (Range Officials decision is final). If a target is shot at and missed, you lose all accumulated points for that set. If a target is shot out of order, you lose all points for that set. You may stop at any time and keep all points earned for that set. If time runs out and you have not missed, you keep your points for that set. If you miss and still have any of your rounds remaining you can start fro beginning again.

Match is 3 sets, shot from the prone position. Score for match is total from all 3 rounds.

There is a 150 second time limit per set starting at the buzzer after load and make ready.

NO COACHING – Shooter is responsible for hitting correct target, doping wind, etc.

No scores will be announced until the end of the match.

Divisions:
Sporter – Magazine fed sporter weight barrel; stock - no enhancements of any sort (bare rifle cost under $350 MSRP new); iron sights, red dots and scopes up to 6x power; no bipods, shooting bags or any type of supports; SLINGS are OK.

HEAVY BARREL - Varmint/ bull barrels bare rifle cost under $700 MSRP new); scopes up to 10x power. The rest of the restrictions are the same as Sporter division.

Open – Anything allowed- any rifle; any type of support including bipods, shooting bags, etc

Rifle Rules:

  1. Rifles must be chambered in .22 Long Rifle ONLY. This cartridge is the most common and available rimfire cartridge. 17 HMR, 22 Magnum and similar rimfire cartridges are NOT allowed.
  2. ONLY lead bullets allowed
  3. Any .22 Long Rifle chambered rifle may be used, however, rifles with removable magazines are strongly encouraged. Rifles with fixed tubular magazines are discouraged, as they are difficult to make safe.
  4. Any scope, iron sights, or electronic sights may be used.
  5. The Sporter division is intended to be budget oriented. Scopes used in the Sporter division must have an MSRP of $400 or less. Aftermarket cheek risers or modifications to the factory stock for getting proper cheek weld are acceptable.
Except for Open division, aftermarket barrel and trigger work, including trigger spring kits and any other parts that modify the factory action are not allowed. No modification of any kind may be made to the factory trigger or action, except for factory upgrade triggers for Varmint division which keeps price under $750 MSRP new. Installation of bolt buffers, auto bolt releases and extended magazine releases are all upgraded safety measures and are allowed.

If you want to shoot in a higher division you can. So a Sporter rifle with higher than 6x scope can compete in Varmint or Open. A heavy/bull barrel rifle with a scope higher than 9x can compete in Open.

Match Fee: $5 for NVFAC members and $10 for non-members. Juniors (8 to 17 year olds) with NVFAC member parents are $5.

Poop. I’d love to make it to the practice session, but I get off at 6am and go in that night at 8pm. 1pm is right in the middle of my sleep cycle. I’m going to try to make it out to at least one of these matches.

It seems that practiscore has changed their policy. They now require you to setup an account by entering your name and email address. If anyone is not interested in doing that please just send your information to me by email to tom@nvfac.org

So who has a tricked out .22 LR Rifle? Can you clean the rack? Only TWO shooters out of 13 cleaned it one out of three sets. Come up to CCSC Sunday morning and give it a go.
