This match is for rimfire firearms. The targets are made from ¼” and 3/8″ steel plate and are cut in the shape, silhouette, of different animals. The chickens are 3/8″ and pigs, turkeys, and rams are ¼”. Target damage will not be tolerated. Any firearm damaging targets will be removed from the firing line. The goal of the contest is to hit and knock off the rail as many of the silhouettes as possible. The targets consist of: 10 chickens at 75 meters, 10 pigs at 112 meters, 10 turkeys at 144 meters, 10 mini targets at 144 meters, and 10 rams at 189 meters.

 

This sport is best shot with a spotter. It is up to each shooter to arrange for a spotter. The spotter’s task will be to read and interpret the wind and other conditions, and then relay this information to the shooter so that they can make adjustments as necessary to get and stay on target. Each shooter will be provided a score card. A perfect score will be 40 targets.

 

The picture below is of one of our “mini’s or 1/5 scale targets for those seeking a greater challenge!

 

The range master will call “shooters to the line” at this time all shooters will bring to the line their gun. After the shooters have made the necessary preparations to their position, they will be given the command “READY”. At this time empty chamber indicators may be removed from the firearm and can be loaded and made ready. The “READY” period is 15 seconds long. After the “READY” period the shooters will be given the command “FIRE” each shooter will then have 10 minutes to fire as many sighter shots as they feel necessary, and then ten shots (one per target) for record. When the shooter completes his sighter shots he will notify his spotter that he is going for score, and he will then fire one shot at each of his 10 targets.

The targets will be shot from left to right; any target shot out of order will be scored a miss. After the shooter begins his record shots no further sighter shots will be allowed.
