Re: long range

working on getting all the steel collected. i found out this weekend that all the 3/8" steel i have collected is not going to work inside 350-375 yards. now i have to collect more 1/2" than i was expecting. i am also finishing up the permit for the land in north idaho. should hear from them soon.

OK, yeah 3/8" mild will be shot through with many calibers even at 1000. Ar 400 or 500 is the ticket, but expensive.

As far as rifle weight, I would not care what someone brought. If you are still doing this as a "field condition" shoot to resemble a "hunting scenario" they should all shoot off a bipod, pack or whatever they do in a hunting situation. I would not allow use of a bench , ledsled, or machine rest. One or two shots at each target to simulate hunting and a follow up. For a hunting type match it should come down to who knows their rifle, can shoot it, and read conditions for first round accuracy.

That my opinion anyway

Jeff

it will be field conditions with no benches, lead sleds, machine, any of those fancy types of rests you may see at most competitions. it will be like you said from bipod, pack, off hand over a rock or tree just like you would in a real hunting scenario. this will all be specified in the rules when the flyer comes out. youre pretty much rite about who should take the match. thanks for asking

Re: long range

there has been a few questions about the partner topic, hope this answers yours?

i think what we will do is if/ when someone brings a partner they can shoot with them and all the singles that come without one will be put in for the random draw this way they will have a partner to spot and keep score for them and vise versa. there will be two people shooting at the same time with four firers on the line. there will be a team at the big game and then a team at the small game. one from each team will shoot then after they are done the others in that team will shoot. this way we dont have a lot of time used up switching people out on the line and we can keep a little order with the weapons and movements going on at the line. there will be a staff spotter per section (big, small game) that way there can be some extra eyes to aid the team spotter, they can also keep a good eye on the firers, course ect.

now you and dead eye jr. can shoot together and any other father son groups or buddies that come together can stay together and have fun. i wouldnt want to split up the father son or the two guys that always hunt together especially since i would like this to be as close to real life hunting scenario as possible.
