    ORC Practical Rifle Match

    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).

    To give people an idea of what sort of stages are going to be involved in this event I thought I would post a couple of the stage descriptions from the DRAFT Course of Fire:

    Match 1 – Know Your Limits (Unlimited)
    Distance: 200m
    Time limit: 60 seconds
    Round Count: Unlimited (minimum 5 rounds, 10 rounds recommended)
    Description: Standing start with all gear off the ground, magazine loaded, and bolt open. On the start command the competitor will have 60 seconds to shoot the “know your limits” match. Starting from the largest target they may only move to the next smallest target once they have hit the larger one. Each target hit is worth 5 points for a maximum match score of 25 points. Should the competitor miss a target their score shall be wiped and they are able to start the KYL stage from the largest target again without restarting their time limit.

    Match 12 – Conserve Your Score… Or Not!
    Distance: 400m
    Time Limit: 60 seconds preparation - 45 seconds to shoot
    Round Count: Unlimited (minimum 6 rounds, 15 rounds recommended)
    Description: Standing start with all gear off the ground, magazine loaded, and bolt open. On the preparation command the competitor will have 60 seconds to set up their rifle and get into position ready to shoot. Immediately on the completion of the preparation time the start command will be given and the competitor will have 45 seconds to fire enough shots on target to achieve the maximum match score on the designated target (10”). Each hit will be worth 5 points up to a maximum match score of 30 points. Each miss will be worth -5 points. The competitor can continue shooting within the time limit until they have a match score of 30 points.

    Yeah should be a fun day. I am looking forward to it. A different sort of should from our normal field shoots. It sounds challenging but i am starting to think the target sizes will make it easier than it sounds. Its a first for us though so proof will be in the pudding...

    Open any more stage demo vids? Looks pretty good. Just thinking which rifle I could use, none are very suitable.

    None at the moment @MSL, i should have some closer to the date.

    IMO an accurate E-Cat semi would be an advantage. Stage time limits will be set that someone with a bolt will be competitive but will be under some serious time pressure. I will compete it with the bolt action because that is what i am comfortable and confident with.
