High Power Rifle

Our next scheduled Matches will be the idaho State Service Rifle Match June the 9th and the ODCMP Excellence In Competition ( LEG ) Match the following day Saturday the 10th both at the SRS Vale Range.

Steve will post match Programs for both Matches ( Both are in one Program ) which should answer any questions  if not feel free to contact me at 208 642-3556 or e-mail me at djbrown1@srvinet and I will endeavor to answer your questions.

We continue to hold our regular Friday evening Practice Sessions at the Vale High Power Range. We shoot one position from the NRA Across the Course Matches each Friday.

Slow fire standing at 200 yds.
Rapid fire sitting at 200 yds.
Rapid Fire Prone at 300 yards
and Slow fire prone at 600 yds.
Check with Rod Davis or myself as to which course we are firing on any given Friday evening if you want to shoot some particular Stage.
Rod and I are seriously considering starting ( baby steps ) a Long Range precision addition to our High Power Rifle Program. In this Discipline you shoot metallic targets at unknown ranges. It would probably be a reduced course maybe out to 800 yds. initially on a limited number of metallic targets untill we get some experience in running this Discipline and if it takes off we would add targets and longer ranges. Travis Woodbury who has a wealth of experience in this field has said he would assist us in setting up the course of fire. I think I may have put something about this on the Club Website last month or not but we have approached the Board with the idea and received a favorable response.

We may wait till the Friends of the NRA grant Application time comes around to put in for a grant or we may just go ahead and get the material before that. This is currently the big interest thing in long range shooting and we have a great range in our Vale Range to get involved in this. It is probably the best private range in the Valley when it comes to potential for this Discipline.

Anyway Rod and I are working on it and both of us have shot the course and have the equipment less targets and target frames. That has always been the biggest drawback to introducing new shooting ventures, i.e. having some one take the ball and run with it, If you have any interest you may want to let Rod or I know so we can judge the interest in the Club
