Registration is Open For the 2019 Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge
Utah Airguns and Airgun Depot have announced that registration is now open for the 2019 Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge.
This year, the event will run from June 6 – 9th at the Garth Killpack Shooting Range in Hobble Creek Canyon, Springville, Utah. The prizes for winners are significant and are as much as $10,000 for the winner of the 75/100 Yard Benchrest Pro category!
The individual events are as follows:
75/100 Yard Benchrest.
Competitors have 30 minutes to shoot 25 targets with 25 shots. The maximum caliber is .30 and mass production diabolo pellets must be used.
Precision Rifle Course.
Shooters will be required to shoot from a variety of different positions and obstacles (prone, standing, barricades, etc) under time pressure. Most of the targets will be reactive steel. This event will challenge competitors and we can guarantee the best all-around shooters will come out on top
All shooters will be randomly drawn in to 8-10 person squads before the event starts and you will compete against the people in your squad throughout the Speed Challenge.
There will be a number of different stages set up with different courses of fire. At each stage everyone will draw to be paired against a fellow squad mate. Those two competitors will then race through the outlined course of fire as fast as possible. The winner will then take the points for that stage.
Big Bore/Slug Challenge.
Shooters will engage both reactive and paper targets out to 300 Yards. The Big Bore class is for airguns of .257 caliber and larger. There’s also a small bore slug gun class for airguns of .30 caliber and under.
25 Meter Benchrest.
Competitors will shoot at a total of three, 25-target cards at 20 minutes per round. Calibers of .177, .20 and .22 can be used.
