We had our monthly match yesterday with 38 shooters showing up to battle it out.

After the match we did a lil BBQ for all so that new guys can get to know the more seasoned shooters to get tips and ideas. + It's just a good excuse to burn some meat.

Steel match will be on June 14th. Spots are filling fast.

This month's COF was from 500yards on out. CBS was a head shot on a B-27in 30 seconds with first round hit being worth 100% of the points and a 2nd round hit being 50%.

Dennis Lorenzo was the match winner with his .284win.

Time Limit: 1 minute prep, 1 minute firing time.

COF Description:
Shooters will have 1 minute to ready their rifles to fire their Cold Bore Shot. Once targets appear shooters will have 60 seconds to fire 2 rounds maximum at the CBS target. If a competitor hits on the 1st round he or she will not have to fire a 2nd round. After the first shot targets will be pulled and marked. If you see a white spotter come up that indicates a hit. If a black spotter comes up or no spotter that indicates a miss and you may shoot a 2nd round. Only the head of the target will be used for the COF.

Spotters marked and adjustments for additional shots - you guys are so spoiled - down here I'm afraid we don't have pits, marked spotters, etc - on steel you mark your miss in the dirt and try again - on paper you're either on or off

06-02-2008, 4:05 PM
LOL...please....

Notice we mark spotters at 800 on out. + In "field" conditions or working in teams you have a spotter to call corrections on impacts.

Spotting the first round simulates that condition. These monthly matches are training for bigger matches. Ever since we started marking 1st rounds at distance the hit ratio has gone up @ 800 to 1K. First round hits at 800 to 1K ratios have gone up as well.

Remember Timberpup we have a steel match that goes to 550 so our diet of watching your own impact, first round hits, not having spotters, position, barricade shooting and offhand, kneeling, sitting and whatever else we can think of is there as well.

And + you only use spotters at distance bud...short strokers that shoot inside 300 to 400 yards can spot their own hits all day long with good glass. LOL

We like to see how CONSISTANT a shooter is with how many rounds they can shoot on target..not just get a LUCKY first round hit.

Nice COF. Sounds very straightforward. Having spotters seems like a luxury. It sure helps in the learning process. As twolf said, we always mark our miss in the dirt and toss another one.

Ryan,

Just make sure to keep up on whats going on since we may shut down a practice day in the AM to test our COF for August's TBRC. No one that will be shooting the big match will get to shoot the COF prior to.

We will probably shut down practice on July 5th in the AM to test our 1K COF and do some timing stuff. After we are done you guys and my guys are welcome to practice.

August 9th will be a test day for our steel range COF...so no steel match that month.

Estimate 800 miles round trip.. $4.25/ gallon of fuel.. 20 MPG..

We are looking at $170 for the cost of fuel alone. It's not TOO bad in itself.. but it sure adds up if you start talking about multiple trips + food + match fees + ammunition costs.

So.. Who's in? 4 people should make it bearable.

I can get 28-29 mpg doing 75 in the Camry. Fitting everyone's gear in there may be an issue with 4 of us. Adam's ride may be better for that.

If you guys are serious about leaning and training you'll make the trip. I can't even remember how many times I've done it by myself.In my Suburban.
I do remember the first monthly BR match I shot though. Drove up, got a room, pulled in the pits and got to fire 10 rounds only cause of weather. Turned around and went home. The match director felt real bad since I was a newbie to BR, but I told him that I have shot enough matches to know that this sometimes happens. Now at least you guys know that it would take some hellashish weather for Vu to call the match.
Heck he's probably hopin that will happen if you guys drive up.

We don't need spotters to call corrections, we spot our trace and adjust accordingly ourselves

We keep our dope, refer to our notes, and calculate our shot before pulling the trigger. If we are off a little refer to above.

Remember Timberpup we have a steel match that goes to 550 so our diet of watching your own impact, first round hits, not having spotters, position, barricade shooting and offhand, kneeling, sitting and whatever else we can think of is there as well.

So incorporate those skills to paper to hone them.

Seriously though its just different trains of thought - I believe in "one shot, one hit". IN my mind anyone can fire a spoiler and adjust. The proof of the pudding is figureing out the right dope for the first round hit. Time and practice will hone those skills thus improving your percentage of 1st round hits.

Then I would hit each target as needed, not each target five times - practical vs target. Like I said different mindsets.

As to Saco wind been there done that, albiet a few years ago. As I recall y'all had flags at various ranges. We too have wind and thermals except of the canyon variety which change several times throughout the day and vary several times over the range. However we don't have flags, but we do have weeds that move, dust that blows, cottonwood trees that sway so wind estimation is similar. :D

It does.
We have a couple flags, a USA one at the public range which is about 300yds behind the firing line, and a little flag at the 500M pits.
It's crazy when you look at one flag pointing at you, turn around 180 degrees and the flag behind you is also pointing at you.
Then you feel wind on your face from a completely different angle than either flag shows...

One shot...one hit...sounds like a Tom Berringer movie to me. If I recall they have like 3 parts now?

Shooters shoot more rounds to hone skills. The more trigger time the better. Diet of long range precision and practical skills is our program up here. Hence the 2 matches per month. 1 to tighten things up on paper out to 1K and 1 to rail on the bolts and push the shooters speed and precision.

As for watching trace...only works in SOME conditions.

+ if I recall most of your meat and potatoes is inside what? 400? watching trace at 400yards? call it within an MOA? or 1/2? I'd like to see that myself.

Now watching for IMPACT and calling your correction is different.

I guess if we all had brakes up here we could watch trace a lil better.

I guess we will find out who's train and school of thought makes the better shooters in September....lol


***Pours gas on the fire***

150 rounds two days for North Vs South really shows who can hold hard and be consistant...none of this 30 rounds cause we shot these COFs over and over type of deals and know this range.

But I am sure our CBS will be a 850 yard dog that has been shot OVER
and over
and over
and over again......may take us newbies to the range a few shots to get dialed but we'll be alright. :)

Not anymore. We have 2 flags per range rules so they know what distance we are shooting. 600 and 1000 yards, and the 1K flag ain't worth much because it's on the other side of the embankment from the shooters. Other than that it's just like your place. Dirt, dust, grass, mirage.

And from what Vu tells me, the flag at 600 yards is where most of your bullets stop. Heck, ours still have another 600 yards to go :)

Timberwolf
06-02-2008, 11:25 PM
I've been nice here recently with CBSs between 100 and 300. My tactical / wierd position stuff is 450 and under - normally prone precision work is 500 to 900 normally on steel as the logistics of the target areas don't allow rapid target changing between COFs. The steel is range appropriate though - normally 1.25 to 1.5 MOA for the range sometimes smaller depending on my mood that morning. ;)

For the N/S evening portion I'll have the whole range which really opens me up to LR COFs that I can normally only do myself during off hours and can't use during normal matches for safety reasons. So we'll have fun with stages only I have shot. The day portion will be mostly tactical stuff of 500 and under but it'll be fun none the less.

Sacramento has the finest range I have shot at in California. I think its pretty darn close to Raton if not equal.

Flags are nice but mirage is what you read if you want to hit at long ranges.

Vu and company have done a damm good job of running matches up in Sacramento

If you Sac is easy see you at next years US/Candian Matches. bring your 308 and school us how to shoot. LOL We locals do OK.

Or bring what fits you best and see you at the Championship in August.
