600 Yard Rifle Match


Next Sunday, July 30, 2006, the Tucson Rifle Club will be hosting another 600 yard prone rifle match. This will be on the 5th Sunday of July. Details are as follows:

Course of fire: Two strings of 20 shots each, unlimited sighting shots for each string.
Position: Prone, with either a sling, bipod or front rest support (your choice).
Rifle: Service or Match, metallic sights or scope.
Awards: None provided. Scores will be tabulated and forwarded via e-mail for information purposes only.
Entry fee: $5.
Starting time: Range setup and squadding at 7:00AM, begin firing at 7:30AM.

Note regarding rifles: All rifles should have a known 200 yard sight setting to facilitate getting "on paper" at 600. Rear sights or scopes must have the capability to be raised at least an additional 14 minutes to be zeroed at 600. Any cal. .223 rifles must have at least a 1-9" twist barrel and must use at least 68 grain bullets to be ballistically effective at 600 yards. Muzzle brakes are prohibited by NRA rules.

Ammo: Bring your own, handloads or factory. A limited quantity of Norma .308 match is available for purchase at $15 per box of 20.
Loaner rifles: A 30-06 M-1 Garand and a .308 M-14 are available for loan, with ball ammo for sale at $5 per box of 20. Contact me ahead of time if you want to reserve one.

Shooters will be divided into two relays, one on the firing line and one in the pits. We will try to move things along as rapidly as possible in order to finish before the heat gets really intense.

If you have any questions, please contact Greg Fallon gcfallon@aol.com as soon as possible.
