I would like your feedback on our new match fees. $60 for a two day match, $40 for a one day match. Also I have asked for a $10 camping fee for the weekend and $5 for the one day match. The motiviation for these fee increases is to give better financial support to the land owner. I will keep the same amount of prizes.
The first ViMBAR Sniper match whas held on July 21st. I think that it went over pretty well, and Mike setup 6 interesting stages. It seemed to take a lot longer to shoot than we thought. With 12 shooters it took from 0900 to 1430 to finish up. We will sure do it differently next time. My thoughts are 1)Limit the shoot to 20 participants. 2)Split the match up into two groups of 10 shooters. 3)Scale back to 5 stages, or 50 shots.
Where are public facilities within easy driving distance of the Salt Lake area which have ranges out beyond 200 or so yards? The longest I know if is Lee Kay at 200. It would be nice to be able to practice and to test handloads out to 800 or 1000 yds.
I'm young, and fairly new at gun collecting. Ive become very interested in vintage military rifles, and infact just bought a Mosin Nagant M91/30. Ive been really pleased with this rifle but ive become interested in the 8x56mm round. I was going to buy a K98 but discovered the Turkish M38. It shoots the same round and the k98, its less expensive, and has a longer barrel, but according to my research, these rifles were merely bored out to shoot the 8x56 round. All i was wondering was if anyone knows if this particular rifle is known to be inaccurate at 200 yards or better. I would appreciate the help. Thank you
