2005 Schedule

THIS PAGE HAS NO AFFILIANTION WITH THE WESTERN PA .30 CAL LEAGUE SO IT IS UNNOFFICIAL

Range is owned by the Western PA Cal. 30 League

The range is open to members of the League. 11 (soon more!!)positions are available with firing points at 200, 300, 600 and 1000 yards.

Regular - (numbered) matches are 88 round (80 for score) High Power format (Offhand, slow, 200 yd; Sitting, rapid, 200 yd; Prone, rapid, 300 yd; Prone, slow, 600 yd. These are NRA High Power Rules matches. Rifles must be either Service Rifles or Match Rifles. If you have never fired in this style match, I strongly recommend that you talk to someone who has before you compete.

F-Class Matches - These matches are the best ones for new shooters. Check out the link.

1000 Yard Matches - consist of two 20 round matches, each with a 30 min. time limit, with unlimited sighting shots fired during the 30 min. One match is fired using ANY sight; the other is fired using IRON sights. Both matches are fired prone WITHOUT any artificial support for the rifle. NOTE!!!!!! The range capacity is 44 shooters and IF the range is not filled, F-Class shooting is permitted.

ALL MATCHES: New shooters are always welcome. Match fee (except for state championships) is $15 or $20; some matches will have cash prizes. League membership is required (@$25/year). You can shoot one match with-out joining the League. This range is equipped with target pits and because of the distances involved, shooters WILL be required to "pull" and score targets. (pit duty) as "in the pits". Thatís OK, because someone will be doing this for you. If you have any questions or need details, please feel free to call me (Steve Wagner) at 814-742-8549 - evenings or E-Mail at SteveWag@aol.com.
