2022 SERIES BLUE & GRAY RIFLE & PISTOL CLUB 200YD HIGHPOWER MATCHES

Introduction: In 2022, the Blue & Gray Rifle & Pistol Club will hold two highpower matches at the 200yd range which adheres as closely as possible to CMP National Trophy Event rules, allowing members and guests to practice and test their marksmanship skills. Basic match rules will follow CMP HIGHPOWER RIFLE

COMPETITION RULES, 25TH EDITION – 2022. This bulletin highlights specific match rules and specific exemptions to the CMP Competition Rules for this match series.

Dates: Saturday July 2nd, 2022 & Saturday September 3rd, 2022. 0730-0800,

Registration and Squadding. 0830,  match starts.

Place: Guntersville Dam 200 Yard Range.

Eligibility: Members and guests of the Blue & Gray Rifle & Pistol Club.

Match Fee: $15/Adult, $10/Adult with competing Junior, $0/Junior.

Squadding:

1) Relay and target assignments will be made on a first come, first served basis on the day of the match.

2) It is anticipated that turn out will allow the match to fire on a single relay.  Additionally, if turn out is further limited, firing will be done on multiple targets.

3) In the likely event of only a single relay, the ability to share equipment will not be possible.

4) All participants are expected to assist with operating functions of the match including scoring and target servicing. Competitors should provide their own stapler.

5) Coaching will be permitted.

 

Competitors with Medical Conditions or Impairments: Shooters with medical or physical impairments, whether temporary or permanent, that do not prevent them from safely completing the established course of fire, are eligible to compete with special authorization from the Match Director. Special authorizations are intended to make it possible for competitors with such impairments to compete without giving them an unfair advantage and generally will amount to permission to shoot from an unsupported sitting position for all stages. Classification Systems: Shooters will be classified under their current CMP highpower rifle classification. If a competitor does not have a CMP classification then their corresponding NRA classification will be used. Shooters without either a CMP or NRA classification will be grouped together as Unclassified. Unclassified shooters will be B&G classified after participating in their first B&G 200yd highpower match. B&G classifications will be adjusted upwards if necessary after every 50 shots for record at a B&G 200yd highpower match and will be used until a CMP or NRA classification becomes available.

 

Classes of Rifles: Shooters will compete in one of two rifle classes. An equipment check may be performed at any time during the match by the Match Director.

The classes of rifles are:

1) CMP Service Rifle or CMP Alternative Rifle. A CMP Service Rifle is defined as any rifle that complies with Rules 4.1.1, 4.1.3 or 4.1.4. A CMP Alternative Rifle is defined as any rifle that complies with Rule 4.1.2. Competitors shooting a CMP Alternative Rifle may be asked to furnish proof of residency to a state prohibiting ownership of a Service Rifle that complies with Rule 4.1.1.

2) CMP Match Rifle. A CMP Match Rifle is defined as any rifle that complies with Rule 4.1.5.

 

Course of fire: The course of fire will follow the Rifle National Match Course (50 shots) as stipulated in Rule 5.4., with the following exceptions:

1) The entire match will be fired at 200yds using reduced targets SR-42 and SR-52 in place of the SR-3 and MR targets, respectively.

2) Unlimited sighting shots will be allowed in a 5 minute time limit, after which the targets will be pasted to begin the National Match Course.

3) A block time of 13 and 23 minutes will be used, combining preparation period and firing period, for the slow fire standing and slow fire prone stages, respectively.

4) A cease fire for scoring and target replacement will occur after each stage. If turn out allows, shooters will have multiple targets, in which case target repair or replacement will occur after the sighting period, after the second stage (rapid fire sitting) and after the fourth and final stage (slow fire prone). If multiple targets are used, each shooter will be assigned an adjacent odd and even target. Sighting will be fired on the odd target, followed by target repair, then standing on the odd target and rapid sitting on the even target. Following scoring and target repair, firing will resume with rapid prone on the odd target and slow fire prone on the even.
