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.

well that doesnt put you out of the whole thing, just the small game. you could do the big game with the 300 rite? it is two individual courses. the small game will be going while the big game is. this will make for not soo long of a lul in shooting, so a guy isnt waiting all day with nothing to do. also i understand there may be some people that are capable for one course and not the other. maybe someone is only interested in shooting the big game or vise versa. you can still play and if you decide to bring your ar and want to fling some bullets cause the course/ targets look like they would be fun to shoot then enter when youre ready.

i want people to shoot, but if i am trying to have the closest to a hunting scenario as possible then i need to have some of the same rules as hunting.

what is the weight restriction in mt., if there is one?

Re: long range

also i know there will be people there shooting small game with holding over for elevation, so dont worry too much about clicking for some of the ranges. i guess with the 223 you may want to click or have some hash marks in the scope.

Re: long range

Just keep everyone updated. i'm down in lewiston and know some people that would probably be defenant competitors. jhibbard24@gmail.com

As for sponsors talk to some local gun related business' that are in idaho, wash, montana. ie. Seekins Precision (lewiston), Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge & Bat Machine (both Rathdrum, Id), Proof Research (formerly Jense Precision in Great Falls, Mt), Lone Wolf (mt), Defiance Machine (Mt). You could even try to talk to ATK (speer, rcbs, weaver, blackhawk) in Lewiston. Good move with using AR steel for the targets. Are u sure that you dont want to include the 6.5 in the small target class.

Another important thing you want to include is the number of targets there will be and how many times a person will be shooting at them. Gotta know how many rounds to bring for each gun for each class.

6.5?? I say .308


I agree on the number of rounds fired, and how many in a certain length of time. As we have talked before, this is important to me as I will not shoot my barrel until it is over heated.

Re: long range

Since this is going to be a hunting scenario, does this mean I can bring my long range handguns? Encore 357 Max 15", 7BR 15", 257 roberts 22"
