    Ok, everyone
    here is a long range shoot much like what i did at the Sportsman's Challenge here in eastern wa, but this will be held at Killgore Adentures on the Salmon river just outside of White bird, ID.

    This shoot will be held Labor day weekend the 1st,2nd and 3rd of September

    There is a campground on the shore of the Salmon river that has some full RV hookups and then dry camping spots for tents and/or campers. on the campground there is showers and restroom facilities. Killgore has a motel just 2 miles from the event, also in the area there is hotels and other lodging facilities in the area with Riggins, Grangeville and White bird being the closest to the event.

    The shoot will be have two courses (big and small game). For the small game course you will have 20-25 minutes to shoot all the targets. The big game course will be split up in half with the amount of targets so barrels can cool and to keep the weather changes fair for the majority, so if there are 14 big game targets we will shoot the first 7 and run the whole list of shooters through and then once the list is complete we will start them all over again shooting the next 7 targets. this will also keep people more involved with less waiting time in between shooting times. On the big game course time will vary depending on how many people will be shooting, but most likely there will be about 15 minutes to shoot your 7 targets. if there is a large amount of people who show up to shoot we may have two people on the firing line shooting at a time, but with some space between them. At the beginning of the shoot there will be an allotted time so that everyone will be able to range and sketch the targets, helping you when you get up to the firing line.

    small game: big game:
    all steel wood frames w/ steel vitals
    Ranges 150-550 yards 500-1000 yards

    - You will be able to have a partner with you while you are on the line to help with ranging and calling out drop information
    - small game calibers .308 caliber and smaller excluding all magnum cartridges.

    [FONT=&quot]Thinking that if the match takes all of one day which I am sure it will, then the next day maybe we can take a couple targets and get them set out at some ranges from 1000 to maybe 15 or 1600 yards and we could shoot our best shot on a certain target for a gift certificate or if you guys wanted to do some side bet or something we could do that too. Maybe you guys who are trying to get in to some 1000 yard clubs or just want to practice so you could make a coyote kill past a 1000 then we could set some out there for you.[/FONT]

    went down to the Killgore ranch today and check out where we all will be shooting. there is lots of country to shoot in along with angles that you will need to compensate for. looks like the way we will have it set up is with two big game courses so people have a chance to let their barrels cool and then one small game course. there will be a fair amount of parking near in between the 1st big game point and and the small game point. there is an access road that stretches from between the points so there will be some walking from point to point, but not a whole lot.
    the match will be held saturday with sunday holding some fun shooting. looking at having a target at maybe 1200, one at 1400 and then have one target set rite at a mile so guys who would like to try a shot at those distances can. probably do a 5$ per shooter fee that day and will split that up trhough those shoots and maybe have some gift certificates from different manufacturers for people that make first round hits.
    looking like this event will be a lot of fun with 1st place prizes of possibly a nightforce scope for big game and then a kel tec .22 magnum pistol or something for a small game first place.
    there is going to be some bbq available for dinner, some lunches and lots of good people to bs with.

    This sounds like a ton of fun. I am hoping to have my long range gun finished by the end of the summer.

    Are there rules on the gun for this?

    I have a Remington 40X in .308 that is more of a tactical rifle but would be fun for the short range course.

    I am building a comped .338RUM with a Shilen 28" heavy barrel for longer and harder hits at extended ranges. We will see how it works once the new stock arrives.
