for small game yes it will be 6mm and smaller

for the big game your gun has to be legal hunting weight for the location of the shoot so for idaho it has to be under 16lbs loaded, washington is 15 lbs

what caliber are you planning to shoot?

Re: long range

we are getting our ar 500 steel
looks like we will have all ar 500 1/2" steel targets, just have to wait for them to be cut and then i can pick them up. that took one big obstacle out of my way. now i can focus more on the location and after that is done i will have the flyer all built up and ill be able to get it out to everyone thats interested.
i will probably have a way for people to register for the shoot prior to the match on the longrangeshooter.com website, where you will also be able to pay online if you would like to get it out of the way sooner than waiting for the day of the match.

Looks like I better weigh some rifles. How far will the longest small game target be? So are you shoting in two different states? Please elaborate on the rifle weights, 15 or 16 lbs?

the small game will go out to 500 yards

not in two different states just havent pinned down the location yet so i put data on both of the possible states ( washington 15 lbs, idaho 16 lbs). and yes i will be abiding by the same rules everyone else will be. there will be no exceptions. once i get the location pinned down for sure the flyer will be made available with all rules, list of sponsors, course of fire, what people need to bring, directions to the event ect. ect.

Re: long range

Thanks, I will weigh my rifles. But I think this will probably eliminate me especially if you end up in WA. My 6 br and my 338 are both close to 16 lbs or could be over a bit. My 300 win is the rifle I was then going to use as it is only 12 lb. But now I see it is not legal for the small game. Oh well, I will wait for final rules and go from there.

you dont have any guns other than a 6br to shoot from 150 to 500 yards that weighs less then 15 possibly 16 lbs?

Not that I would take to a competition. I do have an AR in 5.56 but 500 yards is stretching it as I shoot cheap factory in it. It's a truck gun for pasting yotes on the ranch. Then I have a 25-06 I havent shot in years and it is out. My 17 fireball and 17 HMR, I would not feel are good choices if wind came up, plus I do not usually shoot them that far, they are 17's.

My 3 "long Range" rigs are the 6 br, the 300 win and my 338 LM. I shoot these rifles all the time. All the others are dust collectors. These 3 will do eveything I want from 100 yars to a mile plus. MY wife is 5'2" and a small framed girl. She shoots the 6 br and uses it for antelope every year. But she shot her elk with the 338 LM @ 816 yards last year. I just am not a light rifle guy. When I am hiking in past 2 miles I take the 300 win. At 12 lb it is my light carry rifle.

I respect what you are doing for the shooting community putting on this shoot. Maybe I can come to help and watch.

Jeff
