LONG RANGE LEVER ACTION MATCH RULES
The course of fire for the Long Range Lever Action Rifle Match will be identical
to our BPCR Grizzly match, 60 shots for score, 10 shots each at 200 (offhand),
and 300 to 600 yards any position using cross sticks. The targets are steel of
various shapes and sizes. 200 yd target is 12″X16″ rectangle, 300 is an 18″ round
disc, 400 is a diamond 30″ from tip to tip, 450 is a 30″ circle, 500 is a 38″ square
with the corners cut off and a 10″ swinger in the center, and 600 is a walking grizzly
bear 40″ tall and 50″ long. We recommend that you bring at least 100 rounds.
Any pre-1899 lever action rifle, or replica, shooting a cartridge originally chambered
in that particular model, and equipped with iron sights may be used. All ammunition
must be loaded with cast lead bullets with or without gas checks.
The match will begin promptly at 0900 with practice starting as soon as it is light enough to shoot.
