Scout Rifle Match

Saturday March 16, 2019

Set up @ 7am, check in @ 8am and match starts at 9:00am. 

What is it?
This match is specifically designed for large caliber, manually operated rifles (MORs) or carbines that meet Jeff Cooper’s Scout Rifle criteria. Larger MORs and semi-automatic rifles and carbines that meet the Scout division caliber and at least 1 dimensional requirement may compete as well. Your favorite deer rifle and 4 boxes of cartridges will work just fine. You will need back up iron sights.
