Overview: 

Shooters with semi-auto or bolt action 22 LR rifle with magnified optics will engage targets out to 300 yards. Each stage will have guidelines for shooter position, equipment, time limit, round count and etc. On most cases, any additional equipment needed for a stage will be deployed on the clock. This is a moderately physical event involving movement and positional shooting. Shooters will be tested on marksmanship as well as their ability to overcome physical and mental stress. We highly recommend you come prepared with an accurate rifle zeroed, with drop chart out to 300 yards in a minimum of 25 yard increments. It is also recommended that you have a magnified optic with MOA or MIL reticle capable of 10 Mils or 32 MOA elevation. You will not have time to zero before the event. Concessions will be made for Junior shooters to complete the stages. We highly encourage children over 10 years to compete with their parents or guardians. 

If you would like to shoot for free you may sent an email to tom@peacemakernational.com requesting to be an RO for the match. Once approved you will be assigned a squad. Up to 2 RO will be accepted per squad per match and must be approved prior to the event.

Series Details:

For the 2018 series we will take the shooter's top 3 match scores to determine overall series ranking. We will be ranking in each division and will award trophies and prizes based on finish. Two of your scores will come from any of the first four matches. The third match score must come from the Finale in November. No limit on how many matches you can compete in. Shooter may compete in different divisions but must have at least 2 scores from one division to qualify and compete in a division in the Finale.

 

Series Points:

The first place finisher in each division will receive 100 points.

The match points for the remainder of the field is figured using the following formula:

Shooters score / winners score x 100, rounded to 3 decimal places.

Example:

You scored 89 points during the match.

The winner scored 105 points during the match.

Therefore; (89 / 105) * 100 = 84.7619 rounded to 84.762 match points 

 

Finale Qualifications:

  • Finish first overall at any of the first 4 matches.
  • Top 25% in points from each division with a min of 2 matches (best 2 finishes in division used).

Facility-wide, Critical Match Safety Guidelines:

Please keep your firearm(s) unloaded and cased upon arrival to our ranges and do not handle them at your vehicle.  Once you reach a designated safe area, firearms can be uncased and a chamber flag inserted.  If you are in need of a chamber flag, they are available at PNTC HQ. For handguns, please keep your magazine out and the slide locked back while leaving it in the safe area.  If you plan to keep your handgun holstered during a match, it needs to be free of ammunition and magazine until directed by a PNTC Range Officer.  Safe areas are to be kept free of ammunition at all times.  Firearms are not to be loaded until the shooter is on the firing line or under the direction of a PNTC Range Officer.

 

Again, DO NOT handle firearms at your vehicles.  Use the “Safe Areas” to case and uncase and/or repair firearms.

 

No bi-metal, armor piercing, incendiary or tracer rounds allowed. If a magnet sticks to a projectile, it cannot be used.

 

Failure to abide by these rules will result in a match disqualification.
