    Tarata Medium Range Match - November 2016

    The 2016 Tarata Medium Range Precision Event is held on a property outside of Tarata, in Taranaki. This event will be held on the 26th of November, 2016.

    This is a great event for hunters and medium range target shooters alike. Competitors will complete the course in squads of 3-4 people. Competitors can enter in one of two classes open or hunter.

    The open class course of fire involves 50 shots spread over 10 shooting stages. There are typically multiple targets at each stage and the target distances vary from as close as 20m out to about 600m. The hunter class course of fire utilises the same 10 shooting stages but will only require 25 shots. Most of the hunter class stages only involve a single target and target distances vary from as close as 20m out to about 350m. We will allow calibres up to 300WinMag.

    There will be at least a couple of stages that will have an unlimited round count (within the stage time limit). So if you are competing then bring a few extra rounds!

    Entry fee of $40 per competitor is required to be paid on the day. Non-shooting spotters or spectators are allowed but first priority goes to paying competitors at the BBQ!

    There are limited entry spots available. You need to specifically contact me to confirm your entry. If I don't know you and you want to come along then expect me to ask a couple of questions before confirming your entry. I'll be trying to balance the make up of squads to ensure there is a mix of experience levels in all squads and to ensure you have realistic expectations so there are no surprises.

    A few photos from the 2015 center fire match...

    Eventual 1st place in open class


    A tricky prone shot that many would have been better off shooting sitting


    I like the rain guard on the scope...


    A very good team - he was second in open class, she was second in hunter class


    Eventual 1st in hunter class


    Rules for this stage were "no bipods" several people thought that also meant "no prone"


    Yes we got wet... but we still had fun!

    Hi Guys,
    Sorry but unfortunately due to weather conditions we have had to cancel the Tarata Medium Range event this Saturday. With the weather and some ongoing tree felling work on the property cancellation is the best option at the moment. We will look to reschedule this event when we can.

    Again, i apologise as i know cancelling the event will disrupt plans.

    Simon
