• 40 rounds of ammunition for record, plus another 10-20 for sighters and potential shoot-offs.
• Binoculars or spotting scope if available
• Fee: $10 Club Member, $15 Non-member
• Squads: Shooters are separated into squads after signup and the safety briefing. Each squad is assigned a firing position.
• Sighter period: At the start of the match, shooters will be given 7min30secs to site their rifles in at each yardage. During this time, it is the shooters responsibility to inform their spotter when they are ready to shoot for score. Their scoring shots must also be taken within that 7min30secs. All remaining shooting strings will have a 2min30sec time limit.
• A Relay consists of (2) 5-round Strings, each taking no more than 2min30secs, with a 1:00 minute rest period between Strings
• Competitors will shoot 1 round (single-load) at each varmint type during a 5-round String. Target order is called by a spotter using the scorecard.
• This is a "long range varmint" oriented match. Approach it as you would if setting up in the field for long range shots.
• All firing will be done single-load in the prone position, from a field rest of some type such as a backpack or hunting bipod. Allowances for back backs, joints, and other physical limitations are made at the Match Director’s discretion. We have benches available for these situations, the rifle support rules still apply.
• No artificial rear support is allowed - the rear of the rifle must be supported by the shooter's arms/body only
• No mechanical rests or "benchrest" type equipment will be allowed
• If you are not sure about your gear, just ask the Match Director to review it. Generally speaking, equipment that would be used in the field is legal for use in the match
• The ideal calibers for this are the .243 class and up using long range match bullets, however people have shot this match successfully with everything from a .223 to a .300WM
• Targets consist of hanging steel silhouettes, painted white. Points are scored by “hitting” the target
• A “hit” is defined by a bullet strike anywhere on the white steel target surface. Hits will be observed by 2 spotters in each squad using visual target hit indication (violent movement of the target, bullet splash on white paint, bullet spray around the target and in the dirt directly below the target)
• Spotting is a skill integral to long range shooting. Participants are expected to aid squad members by spotting and giving accurate calls. This is a good time to hone skills in observing trace, reading hit and miss dust patterns, and detecting correct target behavior for hits.
• There are 3 classes in the Long Range Varmint Silhouette (Marksman, Expert, & Master) that will be competing together. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Last place. Ranking levels are as follows.
• Marksman Class - Shoots targets at the following yardages: 276, 400, & 611.
• Expert Class - Shoots targets at the following yardages: 276, 400, 500, 714. Qualification: Score 32+ in Marksman Class (score less than 32 three times to move back to Marksman)
• Master Class - Shoots targets at the following yardages: 276, 500, 611, & 800. Qualification: Score 35+ in Expert Class (score less than 35 three times to move back to Expert)
