    ARE YOU UP FOR A CHALLENGE?
    THINK YOU CAN SHOOT IN THE WIND?
    PROVE IT! SHOOT THE ‘SNAKE!
    We can’t guarantee the winds will be challenging, but the odds are in our favor. If you want to challenge your skills come to the Rattlesnake Mountain Shooting Facility (RMSF) High Power Range in Benton City, Washington and put them to the test.

    RMSF is hosting several matches in the 2013 shooting season that will give everyone the chance to test their wind shooting skills.

    There will be a series of four NRA Approved prone slow fire matches in 2013.
    · March 15-17
    · April 12-14
    · July 19-21
    · September 6-8

    The matches kick off with a 300/600 mid-range match Friday, an 800/900/1000 yard match Saturday, and 2 rounds of 1,000 yards on Sunday. The match is open to all NRA Prone, Palma, F-Class, and Black Powder Target Rifle categories. The fees are $20 for one day, $30 for two, and $40 for all three days. Fee includes a BBQ on Saturday. Advance registration NOT required, first come, first served.

    The RMSF will also host several NRA Registered long range matches:
    · Washington State Palma Championship, May 16-19
    · Washington State F-Class Long Range Championship, June 21-23
    · Long Range Regional Championship, October 11-13

    The RMSF will host several NRA Approved or Registered mid-range matches:

    · Sporting Rifle, April 20
    · Regional Match Course, May 4-5
    · Sporting Rifle, June 15
    · Washington State Sporting Rifle Championship, August 24-25
    · Washington Service Rifle & Southern District Championship, September 21-22

    The RMSF High Power Range also offers several informal rimfire matches on a monthly basis from 50 yards, 100 yards, 200 yards, and 300 yards.

    Ah, yes. Rattlesnake. Home of the (in)famous 'Rattlesnake Clean'.

    Where the honey-buckets are strapped down to cement pads to keep them from blowing over - or away.

    Where that clicking noise you hear is the sound of gravel blowing down the line.

    Where there are strategically placed rocks for every firing point to weight down your shooting mat when you get up after a string so it doesn't launch over the berm.

    Actually one of my favorite places to shoot (when I can)... because all the sub-quarter-MOA groups in the world won't save you from the WIND :D
