    Still a few entry spots left open for this event. One announcement to make as well - NZAR15.com is sending along their .50cal rifle and some ammunition for competitors to have a go with after the match. This is a great opportunity to have a go with a .50cal and will give me a chance to get the scores collated and the BBQ going as well!

    Going to be a fun match! Get in touch if you want to come along.

    Keen to sign up, but I'm having trouble getting my hands on suitable ammo, and somewhere to sight everything in.

    Just 168gr .308, nothing exotic.

    But being realistic with myself, the chances of being able to get some free time and get out one weekend day between now and then, and get some trigger time in, actually zero the rifle, and get some data down on paper is approximately nil. So I'm probably gonna have to let this one go by anyway

    Yep, so to keep things on track time wise for the day we will not be allowing sighting or barrel fouling shots on the day. It will take quite some time to get 30 shooters through 12 stages on the day and this will take even longer if we allowed sighters at each distance. BUT every shooter will start on a 16" (400mm) square target at each distance.

    If you have a solid 100yard zero then I think the come ups for 200yards is about 2MOA, 300yards is about 4MOA, 400yards is something like 6.5MOA and at 400 yards you could be up to 2MOA out on your elevation and you would still hit the first large target giving you an idea if you are high or low.

    Squad ROs will also have the power to adjust the stage time limits and some of the positional shooting requirements for junior, inexperienced or unlicensed competitors to ensure they have a successful day - of course as soon as the squad RO allows this for a competitor that competitor is no longer eligible to win the day or contribute to their squad average score.

    Off to Otorohanga this weekend with the AR-15. Is anyone else shooting this match? should be a blast. Just can't remember if I'm back at my 200 zero or still set for 700 from the last shoot at Akarana. The first stage might be a sighting in exercise. Not sure if I have sighted in in under 90 secs before.

    Heading down there too, going to give the AR-10 a run. Should be a good day.

    Damnit I wish I had my AR15 here in Auckland with me - a roadtrip down for this would've been epic!

    You can shoot it with a bolt action... there are several competitors who are doing just that!

    I have one spare entry spot as someone else has pulled out.

    Great day at the shoot. Thanks Simon for organizing it and the ORC for allowing us all on their patch. It was good to catch up with some members from this community. There was some brilliant shooting and not so brilliant. I am afraid I contributed to the not so brilliant. Being 95% sure you are on your 200 zero still leaves 5% that can bite you in the arse. Yes I was on my 700 zero which made for some interesting hold unders until I got it sort of right. Finished up the day with a few shots with the Barrett .50 BMG now that was fun! Looking forward to the next shoot. Keep us in the loop Simon.
