Otorohanga Rifle Club is hosting its first Practical Rifle Match on the 18th of December, 2016. This match is an individual shooting competition involving 12 separate matches spread over 3 set distances (200yards, 300yards, & 400 yards). The matches are set to test a variety of shooting skills including precision shooting, positional shooting, speed shooting, and competitor confidence! The match difficulty has been set such that all competitors should have a fun day!
An accurate E-cat semi-auto would be an advantage but the stages are set so an experienced bolt action shooter will not be significantly disadvantaged.
The entry fee for this event is $40 and this is required to be pre paid to confirm your entry. This event is limited to the first 30 paid entries only. Entry fees will be non-refundable unless the organizing staff agrees otherwise e.g. if you tell us a month out you’ll likely get your entry fee back, if you call me the night after the event then don’t expect anything back.
In general, any rifle of calibre up to and including 300 Winchester Magnum shall be allowed.
The minimum round count is 71 however the recommended round count is 100 and competitors are highly encouraged to bring a few extra as a few of the matches have unlimited round counts.
If you want to enter then get in touch with me for more information (entry details, rules and draft course of fire).
