Varmint Rifle Fun Shoot

Saturday, Morning, March 9th
(Note date is changed from date announced in the newsletter.)

at the New River 1 desert shooting spot

All targets will be reactive, and at unknown distances, simulating a real varmint shoot. We will take one shot each, and score every shot.

Due to the ongoing ammo shortage, for shots at less than 350 yards, you will need to use a .22 CF rifle (.222, .223, ,22-250, etc.) For longer shots, calibers up to 7mm Mag will be allowed.
No FMJ or tracer ammo!

Bring your most-accurate centerfire rifle(s), at least fifty (50) rounds of ammunition, eye and ear protection, a chair, and your own refreshments. Shade is your option. Binoculars are a ‘must bring’ as well. Be there early enough to have your setup done and begin firing at 8:00 AM. The event will end no later than 11:00 AM.

Since the location is in the desert, you need to also bring your own bench, or bi-pod, or at least cross-sticks.

No Entry Fee.
Guests are welcome to participate.

No prizes awarded,
Bring your own refreshments.
