PNTC now offers a super fun Rimfire Long Range Challenge Match. This match will be just like our Centerfire LRC matches but will be limited to the .22 LR cartridge. Just This match format is simple, will have 5 stages with 5 targets with up to 3 attempts at each target. All shooting will be prone (or from a bench I f you cannot go prone!) and shot on special, very small targets from 50 - 300+ yards.
Distances to all targets will be given and targets will be identified. Shooters are asked to help spot and keep score. We will have as many as 5 shooters on the line at each stage at a time and take turns engaging targets in order. PNTC will have Zeiss Spotting scopes in the match but PLEASE bring your spotting scopes and/or binoculars if you have them.
Target sizes will vary from 1 MOA to 5MOA or more at extreme ranges. NOTE: This match is for 22LR ONLY Rifle systems and/or optic! You can shoot the match with a competition rifle or a hunting rifle with no problem at all. Semi or bolt is also acceptable. You may bring rear bags, front and a bipod.

Shooters will act as score keepers and spotters to track hits and misses for each of the 5 stages. Shooters have 3 attempts to hit each target; all attempts are noted on the sheet. At the end of the match, shooters will receive a bonus hit for every 10 first-round hits they accumulate. Final score will be ranked in order of hits, first-round hits and misses. A perfect score would be 27, 25, 0.
