Welcome to the 2nd Annual Scout Rifle Match

March 13th, 2011 at the Northwestern Connecticut Sportsmen’s Association
… the way the Colonel would have wanted it…

What is it?

This is a practical rifle match specifically designed for major caliber, manually operated rifles (MORs) or carbines that meet Jeff Cooper’s Scout Rifle criteria. First shot accuracy from a variety of shooting positions and conditions on 4 MOA targets out to 200 yards is required. Larger MORs and semi-automatic rifles and carbines that meet caliber requirements may compete as well.

Your favorite eastern deer rifle and 2 boxes of cartridges will probably work just fine (see requirements below).

This match is specifically not designed for small caliber AR derivatives.
