Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Yes, anybody whose rifle(s) meet the criteria in the linked document. Pertinent extracts:

• Eligible rifles:
 - Any bolt-action (non-semiauto) military rifle designed prior to 1950, caliber .256 (6.5mm) or higher, up to .32.
 - Condition: as-issued, except repairs to maintain serviceability; upgrades as originally introduced that would have been typically performed by arsenal or armorer during the rifle's service life.
 - Original-specification reproduction firearms and accoutrements are allowed. Examples: a reproduction Warner-Swasey scope on a Ross Mark III sniper rifle, or a reproduction bipod appropriate for a specific rifle.

• Use any ammo (including handloads and cast bullets), unless prohibited at the range where you will shoot. For example, incendiary rounds or tracer ammo may be forbidden, due to dry conditions. Bragging rights awarded if using military surplus ammo. :handgestures-thumbup:

• Optional equipment: prone mat/rug, period-appropriate front and rear rests (simple sandbags or rags piled on board/brick/dirt-pile, etc.,), spotting scope, non-competition glove(s), original or period-appropriate modern-repro military-style sling and field jacket, bayonet. Bragging rights awarded if shooting with bayonet mounted. :lol:
