Announcing the 3rd annual Scout Rifle Championship

What is it?

This match is specifically designed for major caliber, manually operated rifles (MORs) or carbines that meet Jeff Cooper’s Scout Rifle criteria. Most other larger MORs may compete as well.

In short, your favorite deer rifle and 3 boxes of cartridges will probably work just fine.
