View Full Version : Sac Valley - July 9th & 10th - 200 to 600 yard matches - mall ninjas were everywhere

July 9th (Saturday) - 200, 300, and 600 yard match

Standing - 2 sighters and 20 record shots at 200 yards in 22 minutes.

Sitting rapid fire - 2 sighters in 2 minutes, then 10 shots in 60 seconds with a required mag change. Then another 10 shots in 60 seconds, all at 200 yards.

Prone radid fire - 2 sighters in 2 minutes, then 10 shots in 70 seconds with a required mag change. Then another 10 shots in 70 seconds, all at 300 yards.

Prone slow fire - 2 sighters and 20 record shots at 600 yards in 22 minutes.


July 10th (Sunday) - 600 yard mid-range all prone match - 70 rounds needed

This will be two sighter shots and 20 shots for record at 600 yards. Each shooter will do this three times, between pulling targets and scoring. After each shot, the target will be pulled and marked.

__________________________________________________ ____________________

Many of us will be shooting AR Service Rifles (think Vietnam M16 configuration).

The good news is that anyone who is interested may shoot the entire match prone with a bipod, rear rest, and scope. With this setup, it will be a VERY easy match. All types of equipment are allowed (any caliber under .35, bipods, scopes, irons, rear bags), and will be classed accordingly for awards. Match fee - $20. Each day is a separate match, and many will come and shoot both.

If interested, simply show up at Culbertson Cove (the building/camping area below the 1000 yard line) between 7:00-7:30 am. O'Connell will be doing squadding right there. It is a semi-informal match, with a chance to learn a little about mid-range shooting. Just show up with a 100 or 200 yard zero. There will be plenty of help with comeups from there. We typically have a BBQ immediately after the match. Hamburger or hotdog and chips and drink for $2.

If you have an AR in A2 config you should shoot this match in all the positions. People with bullet buttons just use their ECI flag to release the mag. Those who have done it a few times aren't slowed down by it.

If you have a featureless rifle you drop mags normally. At the monthly matches Jim O makes no distinction between service rifles and match rifles.

If you have scoped AR, or a scoped bolt bolt gun you can shoot the match as a F Class rifle and shoot the whole thing prone with support (front rest of any kind or a bipod).

I guarantee you will have fun how ever you do it. You will learn something about your shooting ability. And there are a lot of really good shooters out there to answer your questions, help with dope, and how to improve.

Lane (Ahhnother8) always gives a separate pre shoot briefing for all the new Calgunners, so don't be worried that you don't know how we do things. this year we've probably had about 30 or so Calgunners come out and give it a try. Some even won money back.

I had fun at the last RMC match shooting my AR. So much so that I am selling my 16" upper that I shot with a scope and building a 20" A2 upper with match barrel :D

I wont have it ready by next weekend but I will be shooting my R700 at the 3x600

Those would work well enough at 200/300, and ok at 600 if it's not real windy. If it's windy you'll just have to work harder for X's.

Load what ever you have and come have fun.

Found some 77gr Lapua HPBT on the bench. Just need to find a good recipe for these, and the other weghts, in a 20" RRA 1/8 barrel using TAC.

I'm going to really try to make it Saturday. Sunday's already booked, though, with maintenance day at the Mangan Range.

Agreed. I used 69gr VMAX's at the last one and although I hit three X's in a row at 600 with no wind (probably just luck anyway), once the wind started blowing they were all over the place.

So, load up some 77's? I'm using a 1/8 20" RRA barrel, so I suppose I could go even heavier. Don't really have any time to work up the loads, so I'll have to go with whatever I can find on the web as peoples "go-to" loads for this round.

Yeah, load up the 77's especially since you have a 1:8 barrel

07-02-2011, 11:30 AM
You should be good with the 77s with 23-24gr of Varget at magazine-length OAL. It'll be a little flatter shooting than the 69s.

Come on, NorCal CalGunners, time to stop posting and go SHOOTING!

Oh, yeah. It's a tradition for the new guys to bring

I can use a cast iron benchrest, right? No way to attach a bipod with a FF tube and lo-pro gas block.

Will there be time to shoot different rifles? I've got a Garand that I bet I can make the paper on at 200 and 300, for sure. Not sure I'll be able to see where to aim at 600 with peep sights, though.

NotEnuf: you can drill and tap that FF to put a swivel-stud in it to attach your bipod.

You can shoot an autoloader for the Rapid strings and a Bolt on the Slows. You will be scored in the "F" group on Saturday if you do so.

total noob here, just got my AR but I had it chambered in 7.62 by 39mm and have an ACOG and would like to do some shooting. I took a class last week and got the scope sighted in at 50 yards, but I dont really have any clue on how to shoot out past 50 yards. Would an informal match such as this be beneficial? Granted I am not laughed at too much.

I can only make it Saturday.

So, we do each distance 3 times, so 22 * 3 *3 = 198 rounds total?

Don't think I have enough 77's.. Better run out today for another box.

Standard NRA bullseye targets. X ring on each target is approx 1 moa.

Sunday's match is all slow fire. You load one round at a time.

No shade, sorry. You have to shoot 1000 yard matches to get shade.

Make sure you tell Jim when you sign in that you have a (rather loud) muzzle brake.

You won't have the time. You get your gear out, 3 minute prep time, you shoot, you get your gear off the line and either get ready to score for the next shooter or go to the pits to pull targets.

You also don't have the room on a firing point to set it up.

Thanks guys! I had fun, even though there were a few hiccups. I know I hit some paper on the 600 yd shoots, but no score was turned in for me.

Great BBQ, too. Interesting prize winnings.

Is the Sunday outting a little more user-friendly? I was kinda put off by all the guys in funny coats harranging about the first-timers not knowing what to do, people shooting more than 22 in a set, and especially the guy at the end of the line next to me talking to himself after every shot. Isn't there some kind of range ettiquite about not talking on the line once shooting starts, kinda like not talking in the tee-box when you're golfing and someone is getting ready to hit their ball?


At any rate, I'll be back, but after some practice adjusting for elevation changes.

I thought that it was very user friendly, I got a ton of help from R Bickel. I was def getting the stink eye from another gentlemen but overall everyone was friendly.

I was pulling targets when the 23 out of 22 shots were fired and both gentleman next to me confirmed the shooter had 22 down range. We informed the line, they let him shoot again. I am just stating fact, not stirring the pot or interpreting the rules. The same gentleman that I was pulling targets for was pulling targets for me, with a 40 second turn around time, so maybe that gentleman was being bothersome on the line.

Old timers are never going to like noobz, that will never die.

The person scoring for the shooter should be keeping track of how many rounds for record he fired. After his rounds for record are done, there's nothing in the rules that would prohibit the shooter from firing off a few more rounds. It's not uncommon when a guy has 3 unfired rounds left in the box and wants to shoot them just so he can resize a all his brass at the same time.

The same gentleman that I was pulling targets for was pulling targets for me, with a 40 second turn around time, so maybe that gentleman was being bothersome on the line.

Whether the person pulling your target is new or an old timer, if the pit service is slow, notify the line RO and ask to have service sped up. It's completely within your right to do that. Don't be afraid to ask.

Rob - a suggestion that would help noobs when they're not hitting paper.

A red arrow to stick on the target frame, either at the top, bottom or side to indicate to the shooter when they're shooting high, low or off to either side. From that distance, seeing the dust cloud, if there is one, is probably not possible, but I was able to see where my shooter was missing to when I was in the pits. Do-able?

I know I missed some at 300 and a lot at 600, but no indication of to where.

If it's just an occasional errant shot, the shooter is just SOL. But if they are missing on several shots in a row the target puller should let the pit RO know so he/she can call the line to give a correction in moa.

If the person scoring has a decent spotting scope they should easily be able to see if the shot is left or right of the target frame (hitting between frames), or hitting short in the dirt in front of the target, and let his shooter know.

Coaching is not allowed per the rules for this type of match, but for the safety of those in the pits and the benefit of new shooters, at the club matches it is allowed.

Glad to see some new shooters out there. Like any activity in life, the first few experiences may be a little rough. Jumping into the unknown with both feet and figuring out how to do it better the next time is the challenge. With competitive shooting, figuring out how to do it better the next time NEVER ends. NOBODY has ever perfected it.

The next two months will be all prone matches. A little slower pace and no rapid-fire stages.

That wasn't me yelling at him, that was the pit RO. I was trying to give him some pointers though on how to speed up things.

It's a common thing with first timers pulling targets that for some reason they fail to grasp the fact that if they see a bullet impact in the berm behind their target, there WILL be a hole somewhere in the target. But they'll stand there looking up at the target to see where the hole is before pulling it down.

When he pulled for the second time he did much better. It's a learning process like everything else.

Whether there are new people or not, when there are that many shooters there will always be calls to mark targets.

- My son did well for being his first time shooting beyond 100y, but he wasn't happy with my handloads - somehow a few took him completely outside the target and he bounced from 6 to X.
A great incentive for him to do his own loads :)

Having head wind and it changing left to right, was very cumbersome to me.
Any pointers on how to learn to read the wind?
- Adjusting based up on previous hit doesn't cut it when you have constant wind changes.
- The flags didn't move much, but I did see the mirage move a little.

I can't practice this at my local 100y range, but I would like to be more prepared for the next time at Sac Valley.

Good advice. It's a great forum for match shooters. And not a SHTF thread to be seen.

Also, you can search that site for the names of the top three finishers in F-Open Sunday and see that some of the best shooters in the country compete at Sacramento Valley including Ahnother8 (who probably hasn't had an "8" in quite a while).

Shot my first long range match last August. Nine matches later, my wind-reading and scores have improved, but I still have much to learn.

Next month has all prone matches, at 300/500/600/800 yards. 15 record shots at each distance plus two sighters. August 13th/14th.

Aug 13 is a 300,500,600, and yes a 1000. Can hardly wait! I still cant read the wind I just aim for the middle and hope for the best:)

Thanks - That is a good site.
Now I only need to convert the MOA advice to Mil's :)

I hope to make it up for that event.
- Any idea of the difference between the two days?

August
13 Highpower prone 300, 500, 600, 1000 (2 sighters 15 record)
14 Fullbore prone 300, 500, 600, 800
(2 convertible sighters 10 record 300, 500, 600 2 convertible sighters 15 record 800)

August 13 Highpower prone 300, 500, 600, 1000 (2 sighters 15 record)
14 Fullbore prone 300, 500, 600, 800 (2 convertible sighters 10 record 300, 500, 600 2 convertible sighters 15 record 800)

I changed the course of fire for August and Sept:

Saturday - 300, 600, 800, 1000 (unlimited sighters and 15 for record at each yard line)
Sunday - Palma (unlimited sighters and 15 for record at each yard line)

All prone shooting, so slingers and f'ers will be present.

Jim will be sending out the changes soon.

Am I reading this right there is unlimited sighters at each yard line? Or just at the starting yard line of 300. What is different between sat and sunday on the new course of fire?

Unlimited sighters at each yard line, but still within the 15 minute time limit.

Saturday shoot from 300/600/800/1000

Sunday shoot from 800/900/1000

Same for both months

Haha, can't wait, haven't shot 1K since March's Can/Am.

Gotta figure out how to make these DTAC115s work.
