This is a one day precision rifle match consisting of a combination of 8-10 field stages where the competitor will engage steel targets at distances of up 1,000 yards from various shooting positions that utilize natural and man-made obstacles and supports. The majority of the targets will be between 300 and 700 yards. We will have at least a 90 degree course of fire so wind calls will change from stage to stage.

Observe the four fundamental firearm safety rules at all times.
- Assume all firearms are loaded and treat them as such.
- Never point your firearm at anything that you are not willing to destroy.
- Keep your finger off of the trigger until you have made a conscious decision to fire.
- Know your target and what’s beyond it.
Eye and Ear Protection
Eye protection must be worn at all times while not shooting. It is highly recommended that you wear your eye protection while shooting but it is not required. Ear protection must be worn at all times shooting or not.
Rifles will be staged with the bolt open, if the rifle has a detachable magazine it must be removed and the muzzle must pointed in a safe direction. RO’s at each stage will advise the competitors as to where the competitor can stage their rifle. If someone wanders into the safe area where staged rifles are pointed do not touch your rifle until that person is out of the safe area.
Rifles will be carried in a vertical position with the muzzle either pointed up or down (no horizontal carry). Magazines will be removed from the firearm if applicable and bolts need to be in the open position (empty chamber indicators are preferred). A violation of this rule may result in a disqualification.
In the event that a competitor needs to move from one location to another while on the clock or switch positions (tripod to prone or standing to kneeling) this will need to be done with the bolt open for bolt action rifles or safety on and finger off of the trigger for carbines. A violation of this rule will result in a disqualification.
A round that does not impact the target area will be considered to be a negligent discharge and will result in a disqualification.
Any bolt action or semiautomatic rifle with a maximum projectile diameter of .308 and a maximum velocity of 3,200 ft/sec.

Points and Scoring
Rifle and Carbine
Field stages will award one point per impact and no target will be engaged more than twice unless otherwise stated in the stage brief.
Before the start of the match the stages will be randomly ordered from 1-5 and number one will be chosen as the tie-breaker stage. Scores from this stage will be used as a tie-breaker in the event that two shooter end the match with exact same score. If the score of the two shooters is still tied after the tie-breaker stage the scores from number two will be used and so on and so forth until a winner is determined.
