I will again be running the IR50-50 (.22 only) matches at our club this summer. The shoots will continue into early October and will be listed on the club calendar.
IR50-50 is a US (mainly East Coast) sanctioned rimfire bench rest shooting organization. There are several types of matches, but I have chosen the Unlimited Class due to some restrictions in other classes. I want all those interested to be able to shoot.
We will be shooting at 50 yards off the bench, on either the 50-yard or 100-yard range depending on the number of shooters. In the Unlimited Class shooters will have 20 minutes to complete the 25-shot targets. There are three targets per match. There are also sighter bulls on the target so that shooters can get dialed in, or practice.
Unlimited is just that. Any weight .22 rifle, any power scoped (recommended) rifle and any type of bench rest such as blocks, sand bags, mechanical, etc. The match fee is $10 per shooters for the three targets. Half goes to the IR50-50, and half to our club.
At these matches you will see some custom rifles and equipment at times, but I do not want that to discourage anyone from participating. Bring your Grampa’s old .22 and get the most out of it you can. Try and improve each time, and consider possibly taking it to a higher level. You will get out of it what you put into it, trust me.
If you have any questions or want to know the dates we shoot please contact me at email@example.com or at (207) 350-6282. The link to the IR50-50 web site is www.ir5050.com.
Hope to see you there!
