The seventh Mason Dixon Rifle Club Smallbore Metallic Match will be this Saturday, 10/19/2019.  It is the final match of the year. Start of registration is 12:30 PM and will end at 3:15 PM.  There will be an initial safety briefing at 1 PM, with the start of the match to immediately follow.

Everyone will have to read the safety briefing prior to shooting, if they miss the initial briefing, and sign a waiver for 2019 if they have not already done so at one of the other 2019 matches.  Cost of the match is $5 for all shooters. The match is 40 targets (10 Chickens, 10 Pigs, 10 Turkeys, and 10 Rams) and is open to non-members.  You can shoot more than one match by paying the additional cost.

           We have added the option to shoot while sitting at a shooting bench supporting the rifle with your elbows and created classifications for those that use the bench.

Remember your .22 Standard Velocity ammo,rifle, eye and ear protection.  I will have some Standard Velocity ammo available for purchase at the range if you don’t have any. As always, eye and ear protection are mandatory.  Spectators are welcome as well as visitors.

Any club members wanting to work hours to avoid the work waiver fee should be at the club by 11:30 AM for setup and can assist with the conduct of the match.  Anyone else wanting to help is also welcome.

I will be at the range this Friday evening, 10/18/2019, at 6 PM so you can zero your rifle at 40 meters. I will also set up my Swinger Animals so you can practice and determine your settings for the other animals. The Chicken is at 40 meters / 44 yards, the Pig is at 60 meters / 66 yards, the Turkey is at 77 meters / 84 yards, and the Ram is at 100 yards. If you’re using a Target Scope and have it zeroed to 40 meters, then the normal settings are 2 for Pigs, 4 for Turkeys, and 7 for Rams. You load 5 rounds in your magazine for each bank of 5 animals. You can use 2 magazines or reload the one you have. You may also use a tubular magazine or a bullet block and load your rounds individually..
