This event allows both scoped and iron sights. Not all snipers used scopes, so this includes our eagle eyed friends.

1. Only military surplus rifles may be used. Bolt action or semi-auto. The rifle must have been issued by a military somewhere on the planet. Generally this means anything that's a C&R or antique and is a military rifle.

2.Sniper rifles may be scoped or you may shoot an with iron sights. There are, therefore, two classes for this postal shoot, Iron sights and scoped.

a. Scopes may be as originally issued, reproduction, or commercial as long as they are no better than the originally issued scope. For instance, on a Mosin Nagant, a 3.5 power
scope.

b. Iron sights that have been upgraded. For example, Smith Sights.

3. All shooting must be done at 100 yard, prone or bench. Slings are allowed. Full rest on bags is also allowed.

4.You may submit up to two targets per month, the best score to be your record target.

5. Winners to be announced after the end of September!


Course of Fire: 10 Shots for record on the target at the bottom of this post. You may use a military style sling in "hasty-sling" configuration. You may use a bag rest. NO Bench rests (Lead Sled and similar). You may take unlimited sighters at any target other than your record target from any position.

Please write your forum handle, rifle/load, position, Iron sight or scope, and score on the target.

You only get ONE record target per month, so make sure your shots are good ones. Please annotate the target before you scan it or take a picture of it.

The classes are:
August Iron
August Scoped
September Iron
September Scoped

Winner for each class for each month.
Overall winner from both months, i.e. Aug and Sep scoped, Aug and Sep iron sights.

You have an opportunity to win bragging rights in 5 areas.

Use the SRF Target 2014.

Shot the Ishvesk 91/30 PU sniper. It has a smoother trigger than the Tula.

nice shooting!
RAS ammo seems to be hit and miss for me, their good stuff is great and the bad is just average. Their early 7.62x39 FMJ is still some of the most accurate ammo I have shot thru my SKS's. I was planning a trip to the range today and was going to shoot this match with my nice original PU also, but 30mph plus winds all day, so much for that idea.

Here is my August submission. I was just happy all ten shots hit the paper albeit only 9 counted. More practice needed!

this was shot with my 91/30 PU with some sweet 174 gr. SMK bullets I scored 8-)
still looking for that great load for them, I am getting there slowly :D

I got a lot of range time today, it was sweet.

And jones0430 I think you should have an 82, using your numbers? unless my math is getting weak as my body lol

Glad you brought that to my attention. We were both wrong. It was an 81.

I have no idea how I got the wrong impact scores, other than doing it in poor light while sitting in my car.

would a M16A1 clone work for open sights @ 100?
it is mostly original, other than the striped lower, and auto parts. I did replace the barrel with a correct 1 in 12 replacement the org one the chrome was flaking.
