Tucson 600 Yard Match Reminder - January


Next Sunday, January 7, 2007, the Tucson Rifle Club will be holding our regular monthly 600 yard prone rifle match. This will be on the 1st Sunday of January. Details are as follows:

Course of fire: Three strings of 20 shots each, two 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 cal. .308 Remington and Norma match ammo is available for purchase at $15 per box of 20 cartridges.

Safety: Eye and ear protection is required on the firing line and in the pits. Yellow "Empty Chamber Indicator" devices are required to be in place on all rifles when not engaged in active firing.

For the winter months we are changing from a 40 shot to a 60 shot format due to shooter requests. Depending on shooter turnout, we will still plan on only 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 reasonably early.
