November 14 Match Results
A couple of hiccups, but overall a good match with 23 shooters competing in five different rifle classes. And in case you missed it, 17 year-old Robert Risdon tied the F-Class Open National Record for a junior shooter at 600 yards with his Match 1 score of 200/18x. Nice shooting, Robert.

Mid & Long-Range Prone Rifle Competition

For our mid and long-range prone rifle competitions, a variety of rifles may be used. Rule highlights are shown below for the F-Class Open Rifle, the F-Class Target Rifle, and the Mid-Range (Prone) Tactical Rifle (AR). In addition to these three rifles, our mid and long-range prone rifle competitions are open to other NRA High Power rifles that are shot from the prone position (ex. Service Rifle (Rule 3.1), Any Rifle (Rule 3.2), Match Rifle (Rule 3.3), and U.S. Palma Rifle (Rule 3.3.1).

Shooters with no experience shooting competitions beyond 200 yards, but who wish to give it a shot (pun intended), are welcome to contact the Match Director to discuss how to get started. Even if you don't have a specialized long-range target rifle, there are ways to get started.

F-Class and Tactical Rifle Rule Highlights

F-Class Rule Highlights

F-Class is shot in the prone position using two categories of specialized rifles at 300, 500, 600, and 800 yards. For both F-O and F-TR, any safe, manually operated trigger is permitted and any sighting system is permitted.

F-Class Open Rifle (F-0)
  • At PGC, bore diameter for competition is limited to .308 caliber.
  • Overall weight of rifle, including all attachments such as sights and bipod, must not exceed 10 kilograms (approximately 22 pounds).
  • A front rest may have up to three feet (i.e., points of contact with the ground).
  • Width of rifle's forend shall not exceed 76mm (approximately 3 inches).
F-Class Target Rifle (F-TR)
  • Rifle limited to .223 Remington/5.56mm OR .308 Winchester/7.62mm.
  • Overall weight of rifle, including all attachments such as sights and bipod, must not exceed 8.25 kilograms (approximately 18.18 pounds).
  • Rifle must be fired off a bipod, rigidly attached to the rifle's fore-end, and/or with a sling.
Both F-O and F-TR use designated F-Class targets identified as MR-63FC, MR-65FC, MR-1FC, and LRFC targets (for 300, 500, 600, and 800 yards, respectively).

See Section 22 in the NRA 2020 High Power Rifle Rule Book for details regarding F-Class competitions.

F-Class Courses of Fire (60 shots + sighters)

Each stage consists of 3 minutes pre-prep, 3 minutes prep, 3 minutes for unlimited sighters, 20 minutes for 20 rounds for record.


Mid-Range (Prone) Tactical Rifle (AR) Rule Highlights

This is a recently introduced shooting discipline that we are incorporating into our mid-range competitions (300, 500, and 600 yards).

Equipment normally found in other types of High Power Rifle Competition such as Match Rifle, Palma Rifle, and F-Class Rifle, will not be permitted in this discipline. To understand the spirit of this new shooting program, think of this as "prone Service Rifle with a bipod and a scope."

Since we will be single feeding each round as we shoot alongside F-Class, we will allow a sled such as the "Bob's Sled" to accommodate single round feeding.
  • AR-Platform in .223/5.56mm up to and including .308 cal./7.62mm.
  • Harris-type bipods and limited rear rests.
  • Trigger pull not less than 4.5 pounds.
  • Maximum 20" barrel.
  • Overall weight of rifle including one empty magazine, bipod, and sighting system (scope) may not exceed 14 pounds.
  • Scope not to exceed 15x magnification.
  • Targets used are MR-63, MR-65, and MR-1 (for 300, 500, and 600 yards, respectively).
See Section 23 in the NRA 2020 High Power Rifle Rule Book for details regarding Tactical Rifle competitions.

Tactical Rifle Courses of Fire (60 shots + sighters)

Each stage consists of 3 minutes pre-prep, 3 minutes prep, 3 minutes for unlimited sighters, 20 minutes for 20 rounds for record.
