Black Powder Target Rifle Shooters,
The Rattlesnake Mountain Shooting Facility 2018 High Power calendar is attached. Once again we have eight long range matches scheduled for the year, one every month from March through October. These are all combined matches with concurrent firing for Black Powder Target Rifle (BPTR) and high power rifle (both sling and F-class). Squadding and firing points will be segregated by discipline. Results and awards will be by equipment category.
March 16-18, April 13-15, July 20-22, August 17-19, and September 7-9 are Mid-Range and Long Range Matches following our usual format. (See attached Match Program) For BPTR, the Friday morning mid-range match consists of up to four sighters and 10 record shots in 22 minutes at 300 and 600 yards. Friday afternoon is long range practice at 800, 900, and/or 1000 yards for anyone interested. The two-day long range match consists of the Creedmoor course on Saturday (unlimited sighters and 10 record shots in 22 minutes at 800, 900, and 1000 yards) followed by two 1000-yard stages on Sunday (unlimited sighters and 10 record shots in 30 minutes).
