Here is the list of IBS scheduled 600 and 1000 yard matches.

Closest to you would be Ft. Pierre, SD, others are Grand Island, NE and Harris, MN. Go to one of the matches and see if it interests you. Ft. Pierre and G. I. offer a factory class.

    F-Class open 30-06 and 6.5x47.

    Also shoot 1000 yard light and heavy rifle. Though my rifle only weighs 12 pounds.

    It's fun to beat the heavy rifle guys at their own game with a factory action.

    I got involved in 1000 yd bench rest this summer for the first time. I was really just looking for a place to hold some shooting schools for The Best of the West and the closest range was the Harry Davis Memorial club in W. Va. about 30 miles from home. Joined the club and shot my 6.5-284 ground hog gun just to see ... Big mistake- shot a 4.12 inch 5 shots and am now hooked. Didn't win anything except maybe a little respect for Huskamaw and am meeting a lot of great guys.
    There is much to be learned from these guys that applies to long range hunting especially when it comes to reloading. Am now working on a real gun for next years matches!! Looking foreward to seeing everyone next season .

    I try to shoot matches all the time, but unfortunately, I put them on and that makes it tough to shoot in them. We are a practical rifle match. Distances from 100ish to under 1100yds. We even hold matches at night. I really wish I could shoot more matches? Luckily in Az, there is some form of firearm match on every weekend and two long range precision matches a month.

    No, not yet, still waiting on delivery of my new rifle. I expect to get active
    this coming summer. As for now I am just accumulating the goodies I will
    need.
