Any F-Class matches in or around MS?

I am interested in getting into F-Class but I have not seen where any matches are in my area. Do you know of any in MS, AL, or West TN?

Thanks,

Durham

There have been some midrange F-class shoots in Memphis.

You will probably have to call, they seem not to have kept up a www calendar.

Steel City in Birmingham shoots a local variant. With no target pits, you get two sighters on a gong and 20 for record without further spotting.

Way down in Pascagoula they have midrange and long range prone matches, which usually provide for F class alongside the service, match, and Palma rifles.

If you're just starting out, the SCSSA match (500 yards) is a good one. The folks there are super and while it's not as formal as other F Class matches, even though you don't have pit service it's still highly value adding. As long as you are not hung up on racking up a high score per se, and more interested in developing your basic long range prone technique in order to shoot tight groups at distance, then it's a great place to gain experience. If you have a good spotting scope and can actually see your bullet holes @ 500 then it's a bonus. I shot there recently and while my score wasn't great on the first relay, I was pleased none the less because I had a nice tight 6" group (20 shots)... only it was low and to the left (lots of 7s and 8s)!
Once I adjusted my zero for the next relay, my score went up considerably. All in all I was a happy camper!
