Pictures from the 4/2009 Sporting Rifle Match at NRAWC

PURPOSE
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. (The "Sporting Rifle Match" has nothing to do with NRA High Power "Sporting Rifle" class.)

The match format is 10 stages spread over a 2 mile distance. Each stage has 6 targets at varying distances to be engaged with only one shot each. Target distances are known to the shooter. Shooters must complete each stage's target engagements within 3 minutes. No "sighter shots" allowed. Score is total number of hits out of 60 possible. No one has shot a perfect score, yet.
This match has been held monthly since mid-2004 (except Oct-Dec/Jan which is hunting season at the NRAWC).

It was cold..

We have other matches on "more private" land, however.

Yeah sorry I’m not familiar with geographical areas in your neck of the woods.
10 stages spread over a 2 mile distance each stage has 6 targets should keep you fit.
And no one has shot a perfect score yet, it must be more difficult than im thinking.

You get one shot per steel plate, targets out to 875. Definitely not easy.
