Match Description:
  • This all-steel match is designed to simulate “field” and “hostage” shooting scenarios. The match is designed to be challenging, fast-paced, fun, and safe, with competitors’ down-time kept to a minimum.
  • Eight (8) 30 shot strings, shot from different positions, which will vary from match-to-match.
  • 240 round match total.
  • One shot per target, in general. Each string will have a demanding time limit.
  • The current course of fire is twelve (12) arrays of self-resetting steel targets at 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200, and 210y. Each array consists of multiple 1-5MOA targets, with a few smaller.
Equipment Requirements:
  • Bolt action repeater or semi-auto rifle - in .22LR only - with detachable box magazines.
  • Competitors must have enough magazines to shoot a 30 shot string, e.g. 6x5, 3x10, or some combination thereof. You will not have enough time to refill mags during your string.
  • 240 rounds ammo, plus what you want to check your zero and DOPE prior to match start.
  • Magnified optics with target (i.e. uncapped) turrets. Reticle with elevation and windage hash marks, and/or holdover values. Max power 12x or greater is ideal.
  • Your Elevation Drop Values/D.O.P.E. from 50-210y, written down and handy.
  • Bipod or other front support, e.g. rucksack.
  • Rear bag and/or other positional support bags, based on personal preference. Shooting mat.
  • Tripod or standing sticks. (If you do not have these you may borrow from other competitors).

Match description has been edited in the OP. Instead of 4x50 shot strings, we will move to 8x25 shot strings starting in August, with two squads shooting simultaneously, at of course different target arrays. These changes are being implemented to speed up the match, as well as to reduce the stress and time associated with the five mag changes that we had been doing, on the very fast clock.

Sorry Starbuck I did not see post one as Mike from Milehigh Shooting Supply gave me a ling that opened up on the last post.

There is still one remaining match close to the Boulder match. Both of them are a ton of fun.

The March 13 match is cancelled, due to an ongoing dispute I am having with the BRC Board.

I will post another update prior to March 20, which is the day registration is set to open for the April 10 match. Hopefully I can get the matches going again, but the way things are going with the Board, there is a good chance that the match will die an early death.

Stay tuned. Thanks.

Hopefully you can pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat. Really loved this match the most out of the 3 monthly rimfire I‘d been shooting. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Latest intel from a chat with a BRC Board member today is that the Board is showing some more support for the match than I had indicated in my Feb. 19 post.

The Board meets on March 18 and I expect a decision at that time, and will post an update here.

Keep your fingers crossed! The match is a blast, it's hard, and tons of fun too!
