Title: Winter Range Long range side match
Post by: Elwood James on January 16, 2019, 06:25:13 PM
Cross sticks are allowed in some of the long range rifle matches.  What type of soil can be expected?   Basically need to know if the spikes at the end of my cross sticks will penetrate the soil so they will remain upright and stationary?

Thanks

Goatneck can answer this and shall be along to. He is graciously handling the BAMM match again for me this year.

I can answer what we've done for last 3 years or so for BAMM at Winter Range.   Shooter was allowed to use any support they wanted.  A solid shooting table and sand bags were available, a few shot from crossed sticks, one or two shot prone.

The range is consolidated sand and light gravel.   Would be very easy to use spiked tip shooting sticks if you so desired.

This year - could very well be exactly the same.   Know your sight settings from 75 to 200 yards before you get there (no sight in area offered by WR) 

Good luck, GJ

WE will have tables and rest available. The shooter has a choice on how he delivers his 10 Rounds down range.  There is no restrictions on Shooter positions.  If you use cross sticks you might need a mallet to secure them firm in the ground.
