    Big Sky ELR Rimfire Challenge, ELR RimFire Event

    We at LRO and ELR Central have been working on this for a while. Last night we got the go ahead, with a unanimous vote at the Broadwater Rod and Gun Club board meeting, here in Townsend Montana, to hold the first ELRC / LRO ELR 22 Rim Fire event. Lots of details to work out, but it will be held on July 28th 2018 with awards banquet right after at another local venue. We already have tentative sponsorship from many industry leaders so we expect great things. We wanted to announce it here first, so "Save the Date" this is going to be awesome and we are very excited!!

    Also we are on Practi score now to sign up


    Breaking News!!!!! Emil Praslick is not only coming to shoot with us, but will be giving a short talk at the banquet on wind reading.



    Rules and COF amended 7/11/18 to include:

    "Junior shooters (8 to 14 yrs of age) are allowed to shoot a rifle previously fired in the event, or share a rifle. For this reason Junior shooters will shoot after the adult class. Youth shooters (8 to 14 yrs of age) are not eligible for ELR Central world records, unless they are entered and record is set in Open class. No rifle can be shared in the Open Class."

    You can register from the LRO store (scroll to bottom) or mail in entries. We will be limiting entries so don't wait. Here is the registration form that all shooters need to send in.

    Jeff what is the max Distance expected to be shot? Or will that be determined by how the shooter do the day of the event? Just trying to get a feel what might be needed for elevation to be able to dial in for the long shoots. Thanks!

    ELR Central rules state all targets to be 12" x 12" and no targets closer than 200 yards. We are looking at 5 targets, and working out from 200 and target 5 in the 500 to 600 range. But this is not set in stone. I want to get my rifle going and just see what the hit probability is on those shots. We want it to be increasingly harder, but not near impossible.

    So, from those numbers, 120 moa should be close.

    Thanks Jeff. That gives me a lot to go off of. now I know what I will need to for a set up to be able to dial the distance. This is a event that would be a lot of fun! Not sure how good they will be able to hold groups at those ranges. The thing is its not the guns fault. Its the amo.

    This event is going to be a great time. Vudoo is setting up at the 100 yard line and will let people test drive rifles. Other vendors are looking at coming too. The prize table will be pretty darn awesome too with several commitments already. There may be some side shoots as well. Plus we have a venue rented for the awards banquet and a caterer for dinner. Camping available in two local locations, and the range is very nice.

    Here are some range pics I took a few days ago.

    I would so much love to come out for this... if only flights weren't so much. If you plan to do it again next year, I'll plan for it.
