2021 Long Range Challenge

The LRC is a very simple and informal long range match. The format is simple: 5 Stages at steel targets ranging from 300 to over 1000 yards. All shots taken are from the prone position. Each stage has 5 targets with up to 3 attempts at each target. Distance to all targets will be given and they will be identified. Shooters are asked to help spot and keep score. We will have as many as 5 shooters on the line at each stage at a time and take turns engaging targets in order. Calibers are limited to .30 cal and magnum’s are accepted as long as they are not larger than 300 call and under 3,100FPS velocity limit on all cartridges of 3100 FPS. Your ammo may be subject to inspection and/or a speed test.
