Match Rules and Rifle Information

Shooters have 30 minutes to use a 22 rimfire rifle to shoot 25 rounds at a target 50 yards away, from a benchrest. 10 is the highest score that a shooter can make on each shot. 250 is the best possible score for one card. The target is scored and the match winner is awarded a Match Pin. The Match Director sends the match scores to 50/50 headquarters, where they are recorded, posted, and compared with targets of other shooters internationally.

There are 25 targets on each target sheet, with one shot being fired at each target. The bullseye is small, about the size of a .22 bullet, and so are the scoring rings. Dedicated shooters in this game strive for the absolute ultimate in accuracy, but you don't have to be a fanatic to have a lot of fun. Almost any .22 rifle can be used, but hard core competitive shooters will be using rifles that are specialized with custom actions, barrels, triggers, and stocks, plus high power scopes.

The wind can be a huge factor. Serious shooters may use up to four wind flags for fifty yards and wait for the right conditions to shoot.

Come on by and try it!   If you're into real accuracy, you'll love it!   And... your first match is FREE!

THE 50 & 100 YD SECTIONS OF THE OUTDOOR RANGE
