  • Spotting scopes allowed.

  • Any power scope on the rifle, with the warning that some of the single magnification (24x-36x or higher) high power scopes can be a real disadvantage at 50 yards offhand. At 100 yards and further, any magnification is allowed.

  • Actions open and empty unless on the line and the line has been called hot.

  • No full on benchrest rifles.

  • No extremely light triggers.

  • Flat bottom stocks or adapters to convert a round bottom to a flat bottom stock are not allowed.

The idea of this match is to emulate varmint hunting, from whacking woodchucks behind the barn to prairie dogs way out yonder.

  • Wind flags have been used in the past, we've gotten away from them over the last couple of years. Use in moderation would be OK.

  • Standard eye and ear protection is required.

  • Unlimited sighters at each yardage are allowed. Please watch the time.

  • Minimum number of rounds is 20, 5 shots at the 4 distances, assuming zero spotter shots.

  • Our focus is safety and fun at the same time.
