“Precision Bolt Rifle” is designed specifically for the Bolt Action Shooter. Usually a quality built heavy barrel rifle with quality optics would be best for this match, however a quality hunting rifle can be used as well and you do not need a $5K Rifle to participate. Semi-Auto Rifles are allowed as well, however they are scored separately from the Bolt Rifles. Examples of Semi-Auto Rifles allowed; AR-15 Type Platform with optics, M1A Rifle with optics etc,. A minimum 10X power scope is needed since we shoot at smaller type targets, typically M.O.A. (Minute of Angle) sized targets. More scope power is a benefit as well as multiple magazines, however not needed.
This match is designed to make the Bolt or Semi-Auto Rifleman more proficient and confident shooter with the various COF’s (Course of Fire). We shoot at Steel unless there is a “RED FLAG” warning, as well as paper and reactive targets such as balloons or clay pigeons. Targets are of all sizes, shapes and colors.
We shoot on the Third Sunday of the month and check in begins at 0730 and we begin at 0800 at one of the 3 firing lines, usually the 500 though and we move forward. Our normal target engagements range anywhere from 25 to 500+ yards and the match usually concludes between 1200-1300.
Cost is $20.00 per entry and 50 to 60 rounds is the average round count and there are usually 8-12 stages under par times. Some stages are fired for precision with a longer par time element and others are done under a shorter par time element. We also fire from various shooting positions, however many times from the prone position. Rear sandbags are not allowed under the butt stock when competing.
The primary focus is to make you a better shooter with your rifle, so this match is a great way to practice those techniques that improve your Bolt or Semi-Auto Rifle skills.
