Rimfire Sporter Rifle Match - Alexandria IWLA Chapter on October 7

The Izaak Walton League of America - Alexandria, Chapter is holding a Rimfire Sporter Rifle Match on 10/07/2023.  The location of the range is: 2729 Garrisonville Road, Stafford, VA.  Match Begins: 9:00AM.

CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Matches offer shooters a recreation-oriented competition where they use .22 caliber sporter rifles (plinking and small game rifles) commonly owned by almost all gun enthusiasts. This is a unique match where all you need is a rifle and ammo. You fire with standard sporter-type rimfire rifles that can weigh no more than 7 ½ pounds, with sights and sling. Rifles may be manually operated or semi-automatic; shooters with manually operated actions are given extra time in rapid-fire to compensate for the difference.

There are three classes of competition – the standard “O Class” for open-sighted rifles, “T-Class” for telescope sighted and rear aperture sighted rifles and “Tactical Rimfire” class, which is a .22 caliber A4 or AR15 style rifle. Firing for all classes is done at 50 and 25 yards on a target with a 1.78” ten-ring and an 18” outer one-ring. Even new shooters can get hits on this target, but it’s still tough enough that only one person has fired a perfect 600×600 score – a junior, Sam Payne, in 2015.

$20 members, $30 non-members, under 18 FREE.
