Long Range Varmint Silhouette

Saturday, August 10 @ 7:30 am - 1:30 pm

Long Range Varmint Silhouette Match Description

  • Long Range Varmint Silhouette (LRVS) is a fun, challenging rifle match which will test and develop your abilities in the arena of precision rifle shooting.
  • In contrast with many typical “target rifle” games, LRVS is designed to improve technical skills related to hardware and technique within a practical context.
  • Shooters are faced with having to change target and range for each shot. The size of the targets are such that minor corrections for changing conditions are common on a shot-to-shot basis, requiring the shooter to rapidly assess the conditions prior to each shot.
  • Shooters engage targets from 165 to 850 yards, depending on the class qualification.
  • Many competitors find that the most challenging aspect of the match is to assemble and maintain a consistent rifle/optics/load system, as well as pay closer attention to the fundamentals of positioning and trigger control.
  • Suggested minimum requirements for the match are a 1 MOA-accuracy centerfire rifle with an optic of at least 10x magnification which can be rapidly adjusted for impact. Typical competitors use a heavy-barrel bolt-action rifle in 6mm – .30cal chamberings, with a 15-20x target scope and graduated reticle.
  • Triggers with less than 2-lb pull weights are strongly discouraged, as is ammunition which creates reliability problems when cycling loaded cartridges – such things are better left to bench shooters and have no place in the field.
