Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) Shoot Director Bob Roussseau hosted our third Class “F” shoot Saturday, October 24th on Range 8. Class “F” is for scoped rifles equipped with either a bipod or sling/bag combination to enhance the stability needed to accurately hit a target 600 yards downrange. This particular event is a 20 round course shot from the prone position with each round spotted by a scorer in the target “pit” who drops the target and marks the shot location in two places before pushing the target back in scoring position. This is an old (1903) military venue and scoring system that is part of a national series which holds their finals at Camp Perry in Ohio. Class “F” rifles can be equipped with a bipod or shot with a sling from a rest. This particular weekend everyone was equipped with a bipod and there was an almost even split with shooters fielding 0.223’s and 0.308’s.
Weather was perfect for lying in the sun and shooting 600 yards with mother nature supplying clear skies and little wind (definitely a fan). As always our folks were safe, shot well, exhibited good sportsmanship (shooters take turns scoring for each other in the pit), and joked about their shooting. Congratulations to Jack who shot 179 out of 200 shooting a bolt-gun. Our new AR 15 class was dominated by Stephanie who shot a 176 also out of 200.
