Guess it's time to put the scope back on the Palma rifle then, eh?

There are ranges closer to you that have them. Coalinga, Pala, Camp Pendleton (Santa Margarita gun Club).

Or you could make a weekend of it. Drive up Friday night, shoot Sat & Sun, drive back Sunday afternoon. There are actually several people who do that a few times a year.

Ah, the old Folsom Special makes its return! Probably the best match for a first-time match shooter to attend.

Starts at 300yds, 10 rounds per distance (need 48 rounds total for the match) and if you like your Sighters you can score 'em.

If this match format doesn't get the fence-sitters, next-time-ers and 100yd line champions to come out and shoot, nothing will.

I'll see you winners next Saturday.

plan is to shoot Sunday's Palma match

ironic how a gun originally purchased for iron sight shooting seems to have wound up as an f-class gun

I have never shot in a competition.
Have an AR I have only stretched out to a little over 300, space available. It has some glass, bi pod and I shoot it prone almost exclusively. I'd like to try further, but probably not much "competition" for you guys.
So would a green horn slow things down too much?

This is the perfect match for first timers. Everything is shot from the prone position. We do what's called "slow fire". You don't load up a whole magazine, you only load one (1) round at a time, fire that round on the target. The target is pulled down and a "spotting disc" is placed in the bullet hole, then the target is sent back up so the shooter can see where they hit, make any needed corrections, and do it all over again.

In this particular match you get 2 sighter shots (think of them as practice shots), and then you shoot 10 shots for record (for score). In this match, if your sighter shots are good ones - 10s or Xs - you can "convert" those to your first, or first and second, shots for record. While you are shooting another shooter is keeping track of your shots and score for you.

At the High Power matches everyone shoots, keeps score, and also spends time in the target butts pulling and marking targets.

We almost always have a few new shooters, and those with experience will always provide assistance to the new people. All you need to do is say it's your first time.

Since this is a short/mid/long range match, with the longest distance being 800 yards, any AR with virtually any ammo will be capable of keeping all shots on target.

This match is so easy and fun, even the vintage rifle guys bring out their Mausers, Mosins, and Swiss rifles to shoot with their iron sights. Some of them even score better than the "real" competition rifles.

Don't be bashful, come out and have fun. Shooting on a High Power target for score gives you something to measure your skill by if you do it on a regular basis. Don't be concerned with beating other people. It's nice to finish at the top (I usually don't, Killshot and Nimoz usually do), but most for most of us it's about our own progression.

Sunday's Sac match goes out to 1k and you avoid the 152 and all its weekend weirdness. Not to say that the 5 and 99 don't have their issues...

Pthfndr's last post is great and really lays out what to expect at these matches.

Even though there are other shooters on the line with you, we're really competing against ourselves, trying to improve on our best scores.

It's a long, fun pursuit and it all starts with a drive to Sac Valley....(sorry SoCal)

Just dropped off the rifle. Should have a new barrel on it by the morning. Hope to find time to work up a load for the weekend. No need for good zeros before a match!!

Good points - You forgot to mention the rain-cower on the 1000 yard range
I'll decide later - haven't loaded for Sunday yet.

It leans both ways. I guess it is bi-, or if you include tactical, it is tri-

Something about, "the man with one gun" thingy...except for the spacegun, the service rifle, the smallbore rifle, and the shotgun for killing ducks. Unfortunately for the ducks, I am pretty good with the 870 and 3 1/2" #3's.

1:11 twist .3065/.298 Krieger

- I tried 230's out of a 1:12, that did not go well I'm sticking to 155's and 185's for now.


BTT - I'm done loading for Saturday and Sunday and aim to be at Sac for both days.

Not yet, my FN still has more barrel life in it - I also have to figure out how to shoot of a solid rear bag, instead of my small squeeze bag. Don't want to deal with that just yet

- I think I have a good working load for it though, my son beat me with it down in Fresno. Trying to get him to shoot on Sunday too and see if he can do it twice

I had less, and thought I did well averaging almost 98%. I will be happy if I can do that tomorrow
