Default Shooting at Cuyama Sat. Sep. 18th & Sun. 19th- All welcome

We're having a 600 and Palma (800, 900, 1,000 yard) matches on Saturday and another Palma match on Sunday if any of you guys are interested in trying it out or even watching.

I'm planning on driving up early Saturday morning, staying overnight and shooting on Sunday morning. If any of you guys would like to try shooting long range this weekend this would be the time to try it. I'll be glad to help you get set up, sighted in and coach you through a match.

Let me know if you are interested and I'll match my schedule up to yours to get it done. Here's the schedule:

Saturday, 18 September

8:00am - Palma 45 Shots

12:00pm - 600 Mid Range, 60 Shots

Sunday, 19 September

8:00 am - Palma Long Range, 45 Shots

Bring at least a half a dozen more rounds for sighters, more if you don't have a long range zero.

We’ll assign positions at 8:00 AM and Noon for the afternoon match. There’s no need to pre-register, everyone will get a chance to shoot.

We are now an electronic target range. The club utilizes ShotMarker targets. These targets eliminate the need for manning the pits and result in dramatically reduced match times. The targets are pretty sweet and allow you to focus hard on shooting and improving for the next match.

All of our matches are NRA approved and open to the public. Cost is $20 per match (for non-members) and includes $4.50 fee for score submittal to NRA. $5 discount for club members. NRA membership is not required to participate or to earn an NRA classification.

All are welcome to arrive early Friday or Saturday and can camp on the property. If you are into running water there’s the Buckhorn Inn in New Cuyama, a place in Maricopa and a couple of places in Taft, 20- 30 minutes drive from the range.

Google "TriCounty Rifle Range" on Google Maps for turn by turn directions.
The range is located east of CA33 about 3 miles south of the 33 and 166 juncture. Look for a green Palma sign east of 33 at the Foothill Rd intersection. Turn into the field and drive straight back to our shade structure. Please be mindful of the fields as they may be planted (stay on the well worn path).

Bring all your safety equipment and a shooting mat, the match is shot prone and a bipod or front rest is allowed, along with front and rear sand bags. In this heat, bring a hat, a chair, sunscreen and lots of fluids also

A good 100 yard zero (Look on JBM Ballistics to build a drop chart for the range that you are shooting. Use 100 yard increments out to 1,000 yards, The elevation at the range is 2,650 feet above sea level). Use 70 degrees F for the morning shoot and 90 deg. F for the afternoon shoot.
