Tactical Prone Match
Varies from match to match, see club calendar for details. Fired from the 100 or 200 yard line, 15 to 20 shots for record, 3 sighter shots allowed.
Remove your rifle from the case on the firing line with the muzzle pointed down range. An empty chamber indicator (ECI) must be inserted when the range is “cold”. Please ask for an ECI if you don’t own one. Your muzzle must be pointed at the berm while closing the bolt on a live round. Slam fires do occur, and we can’t have any projectiles leaving the range.
Pre-registration not required but encouraged, with pre-registration you can choose your relay. To register, email Greg Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 920-901-0373. Additional questions are welcome.
NRA Mid Range Prone Tactical Rifle was developed about 5 years ago as discipline that will allow competitors to shoot rifles they already own without spending a lot of money on discipline specific equipment. Both “sling” and tactical rifle shooters will shoot alongside of each other. This match is ideally fired at 300, 500 and 600 yds, most clubs don’t have a 600 yd range, so we shoot targets at 100 or 200 yards that are geometrically equivalent to the 600 yd target.
This was a discipline designed to be tactical in nature using AR-15 and AR-10 type rifles. We will also allow M1 and M1A rifles. A Harris type bipod or range bag/ruck sack can be used as a front rest. No F Class type bipods and no sandbags or hard rest are allowed. bench The intent is to shoot what you have and not be a high dollar equipment type of match. A soft rear rest without “ears” is allowed. No sandbags or stocks with an extension that rest on the ground are allowed. Suppressors or muzzle breaks are not allowed. If you have a muzzle break, we will squad you on the final relay or next to some who is comfortable shooting next to you.
Metallic, telescopic, red dot or holographic sights are allowed. Scopes are limited to 15 power, you can use a variable power scope greater than 15x, just set it to 15x or less.
- Shooting mats: A piece of carpeting or a commercial shooting mat is all that is needed. We will have carpeting available, best if you bring your own. Some find elbow pads useful. A shooting mat that secures the feet of the bipod is not allowed.
- Ear protection is required
- Eye protection is required
- Sweat band or towel can be useful when it’s warm out
- 10, 20 or 30 round magazines
- Spotting scope and stand. We will have scopes available if you don’t own one.
- We have a rifle and ammo available if you do not own one. Please notify me in advance if you need a rifle or ammo.
