Total of 60 rounds for record plus sighting shots

Equipment:   Shooting mat plus rifle and ammunition and hearing protection along with some sort of ECI (empty chamber indicator).  A four-foot-long piece of trimmer string works great for this purpose.  Additionally, you may want to bring a spotting scope, water and snacks.  Front rests or bipods or club sand bags are up to each shooter.  Club iron sighted rifles are available, call ahead of time to arrange for a club rifle.  Every shooter needs to provide their own ammunition.

  1. Prone position
  2. Open sights with sling
  3. Telescopic sights with sling
  4. Telescopic sights with front rest and rear bag (bipods count as a front rest)
