The .22 caliber benchrest match is held for ARPC members and their accompanying guests from April through October on the 2nd Sunday of the month beginning at 9:00AM (please show up by 8:45) and ending about 10:30AM. The match begins shooting at the 100 yard targets to take advantage of the generally calmer early morning wind and concludes with the 50 yard targets. The 100 yard target used is the IBS 200 Yard Hunter Rifle Target and the 50 yard target used is the USBR 50 Yard Target. Shooters fire 25 record rounds at each target/distance plus unlimited sighters.
Any safe .22 caliber rimfire rifle may be used with .22 long rifle, long or short ammunition as well as subsonic, standard and high velocity ammunition. Typical equipment used includes:
- a front and rear rest, metal, sandbag or wood block
- a spotting scope
- a sighted-in rifle scope
- a .22 rimfire rifle
This is a friendly and recreational ARPC club member match. Shooters of any skill level are welcome to shoot and join the fun. The cost is $3.00 per shooter to cover targets used.
