April Mid-Range Information

Hello Fellow High Power Shooters:

This is a reminder that April’s Mid-Range Match will be a 300, 500, 600 yard format. SMGC is experimenting with this format since this is the Format used at the National Rifle Championships at Camp Perry. We wanted to ensure those who may attend the 2015 National Championships the opportunity to get “Good Zeros” for that competition. Please let me know how you like this format vs. the 3 x 600 yard format. Match start time will be at 0800 hours on the 300 yard line. As always, your early registration is greatly appreciated.

Stay Centered and see you at Wilcox Range!
