OVERVIEW

The "Sporting Rifle Match" at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton NM is designed to test a rifleman's skills shooting small targets from approximately 175 to 700 yards in the natural terrain, with what he can carry throughout the course.

Typical equipment used includes: a rifle capable of 1 MOA accuracy; rifle optics allowing precise hold-over for small targets from 175 - 700 yards; binoculars to spot for other shooters; and a backpack to carry water, ammunition, and a couple power bars.

The typical format is 10 stages over a 2 mile distance. Each stage typically has 6 targets to be engaged with only one shot each. Score for the match is total number of hits.

SCHEDULE
The shooters' meeting is at 7:30AM. Do not be late.

Match cancellations will be announced on the web page ASAP before the match, ideally by Friday morning, but it could be as late as Saturday afternoon for a last-minute emergency.

Aren't you guys under about 30" of new snow?

I've got about 10" in the yard, myself. It's a far cry from the mid-70s that we had on Saturday.

I don't know what it's like down there now. It was clear for the March match, and we have a little snow up here in Fort Collins this week.

It'll all be melted by the time you drive down there.

Thanks for the nice pictures. I'm ashamed that I don't head up there as much as I should - just so much (chores!) to do on weekends down here in ABQ/SF.

It's about the same distance for you up from ABQ as it is for most of us down from Denver. It's about 290 miles from Fort Collins.

I know! I have no excuse, other than I have to commute a lot for work and I don't really feel like getting in the car on weekends.
