realistic rifle skills. Start standing, bipod either not mounted or else carried in the normal, non-shooting fashion. Upon signal, go prone, fire twice at a 10" disk at 200m. Move forward to the 175m position, use a sitting-position to fire 2 more at same disk, using backpack or x'd sticks or sitting-bipod if you wish. You may abandon the sticks or backpack at this point, but you had to have them on your person when firing from 200m. Move forward to 150m, fire 2 at same disk, kneeling, using walking stick as a rifle rest if you wish, but you had to have the walking stick with you for the 200m and 175m firings. You may abandon the stick at this point. Move forward to the 125m firing position, fire 2 more rds at the same disk, from the weak side of "cover" (ie, a tree,post or some such object) without touching the cover, not with any part of your body or the rifle, or anything else. Move forward to the 100m firing position, fire 2 more rds at the same disk, offhand-standing unsupported.

Getting all 10 hits, in less than one minute is a good showing, 45 seconds is outstanding. A scoped AR will prove to be a HUGE help in winning this match, particularly if you have a forend-mounted bipod for the first 2 shots. A 10" circle is a very good representation of the target presented to you by a head-on prone man, ya know.

Sounds very gamey to me. Why do you need all those bells and whistles? They act as nothing more than a crutch! Try it rifle only, demonstrate your marksmanship ability. Come back and tell us after you have done it. Complete with pictures and independent verification.

Match 12 has been described by someone who knows what he is talking about and done it. Rifle 10 comes from someone who read about it in an old gunrag.

I always hated the last 2 rds at 100meters, by that time I was always breathing so hard the muzzle is flying all over the place. But it is an excellent way to finish off 2 days of hard shooting.

Don't forget the include the time johnny will need to get his scope out of the belt case and attach it to the gun, he's stated that
the scope is mainly in a hard belt case, to be used as a substitute binocular. If need a scope to get a long range hit, there's also time to install it, use a subsonic .22lr and can to quietly check the POI, etc

polesmoker,

It would get worse for gunkid. He would find he left the .22 bolt in his precious CAR while trying to feed in 5.56 ammo. Then when he dropped the .22 bolt somewhere in the grass he would strugle with the hinged open CAR all the while fumbling to get the 5.56 bolt out of his pocket past is cut up POS Star pistol, which would probably go off in his pants changing his gender is short order.

After he fired a few shots he would hobble forward (remember he has a bad back) and his silencer would become full of dirt as he used the CAR as a crutch.

About that time he would sprain an ankle as he tripped over a gopher hole while he did his zig-zag thing. Probably stick him self with that shooting stick in the bargin.

No, his '10' exercise would be the end of him.
