Rimfire Benchrest Match

This is a great event to practice trigger control, breathing, and sheer accuracy with plenty of time to take shots. You can try it with just about any Rimfire rifle which I’ll bet most of us have so come on out and see what yours will do.  Most shooters use scoped rifles, but iron sights are fine. The 10/22 Ruger is the most popular Rimfire on the line, but heavy barreled, bolt action guns with high power scopes (24X – 36X) are often seen.

Shooting is done from the covered benches on the Bullseye range. Front rests are allowed with one “sandbag”.  An optional and rear sandbag is permitted.

No end of the rifle is to be clamped down and or bolted/clamped to the table.

Rimfire rifle – Iron or optical sight are permitted

20 rounds of ammunition

Course of Fire:

When other shooters are competing it is expected that shooters waiting their turn will be respectful of the other shooters by keeping the talking and other noise to a low level.
