Are you interested in a fun shoot with plain base bullets in your old favorite“Closet Queen"
This is Ken Campbell's idea (have you noticed he is an instigator) and I think it is a good idea. The Bunny match idea is a good one but our old 3006 rifles will be too heavy to make the weight limit. No problem. Lets do our own event. The rules would be pretty much like the Bunny match rules. Plain base bullet in fixed ammunition. Field positions including walking staff, cane, hand held shooting sticks, shooting sling but no bench rest or mechanical rests ala F Class. To start with we are thinking 4X scopes or iron sights. If we get enough entries, we can worry about separating the scopes from the irons later. We can use either Bunny targets or Ground Hog targets. I am leaning toward Ground Hogs just to avoid confusion with the Bunny postal matches. We can decide this later if their are enough people committed to participate. I don't see any need for a weight limit. If you want to shoot your Garand, have at it.
I will collect the targets and publish the results in TFS. If the participants would like, I will also distribute the results quickly via email. It would be very interesting to collect rifle, bullet and load information just like the regular CBA matches. This info could be a very useful source.
I am sure there are other details but I would like to not reinvent the wheel here. The Bunny matches are a good framework. This is envisioned as an opportunity to dig out your old Pre-64 Model 70 or that Springfield 03 in the closet. If you have multiple 3006s I don't foresee a problem with multiple entries.
Who would like to play? If we have enough interest, we will figure out how to sign up.
