Snipergeddon 2017

Mill Creek Rifle Club will once again host Snipergeddon in 2017 on November 19th. This year’s competition will follow last year’s shooting format. The rules are simple: it is a single elimination gong shooting competition. Each competitor has 3 shots to hit a 24” gong between 300 and 600 yards and 5 shots at successive distances. If the shooter hits the gong, he/she advances to the next yardage line 100 yards further back! Last person standing wins. All shooting is done from the prone supported position. There is no equipment restriction but there will be optional categories based on caliber.

The day of the match, each competitor will need to qualify by hitting the 24” gong at 300 yards. The competition starts at 500 yards right after the qualification round. There is a one minute time limit per shot. The clock starts when the range officer calls the competitor’s name. Shooting is done in flights of several shooter in a round robin fashion.  Like last year we will have three separate shooting categories:

223: Any 5.56x45mm or 223 Remington chambered rifle

30 Cal: Any 30 cal Non-Magnum Cartridge (30-06 or smaller).  No Wildcats allowed

Open: Any firearm/ any caliber

Like last year we will have 5 24” gongs.  However, this year we will have redundant flashers on each target.  Furthermore, all flashers will be protected from bullet splash.  Every competitor who hits the gong at 600, 1000 or 1200 yards will be awarded an achievement patch. Top three competitors in each category will receive a Snipergeddon plaque.  Registration will start at 7:00 am on Sunday at the Mill Creek Rifle Club clubhouse. The competition will start at 8:00 am. The entrance fee is $35. If the adjacent farmer’s field is wet we will have to cancel or reschedule the competition.  For more information please contact Witek G-B at witekgb"at"gmail.com

If you would like to help set up plesase come to the high power range on Saturday at 1:00pm.  After setup we will test the gongs at 500 yards.
