Description:

The Green Mill Long-Range .22 match is a long-range “quarter-scale” precision rifle competition that uses ¼ scale steel targets placed at ranges from 35 yards out to 230-ish yards. The match consists of seven to nine shooting stages with round counts of 8 to 15+. Each stage is shot under time pressure from supported and unsupported positions (e.g. standing, sitting, kneeling, prone, tripods, barricades, rooftops etc.). This competition is designed to mimic long-distance shooting in field conditions and closely approximates long-range centerfire PRS style competitions.

The ballistics of subsonic .22LR match ammo closely aligns with the ballistics (wind drift and drop) of a .308 (175g SMK) at one quarter the distance. In other words, you can closely simulate and practice long distance centerfire shooting at ¼ the distance using a .22LR and shooting ¼ scale targets. The elevation and wind call needed to “ring steel” at 232 yards with a .22LR on a ¼ scale IPSC target will closely match the elevation and wind call needed to hit a full-size IPSC in the field at 928 yards with a .308. A detailed knowledge of your gun, optical sight, ammo and its associated ballistics are required to make first rounds hits and wind reading is the “Great Equalizer” between competitors. The course of fire is fun and challenging and will help every shooter hone his or her marksmanship skills.

I have attached Last month's course of fire for those that would like more details. The match does vary slightly each time in terms of targets and target placement so the attached file will give you a good idea of what to expect.
