HIGH POWER RIFLE

The OMGC High Power Matches are for Service Rifle or Match Rifle shooters. The course of fire is the standard 50 shot National Match Course 200 yard reduced. Scores are turned in to the NRA for shooter classification and can qualify the shooter to purchase rifles from the CMP. Matches are held from April to September. See the calendar for dates.

 
BATTLE RIFLE

The Battle Rifle Match is for unmodified military bolt action or semi automatic rifles. The Match consists of ten shots off hand in 10 minutes, ten shots sitting or kneeling in 2 minutes with the shooter reloading at least once if needed and 20 shots prone in 20 minutes. All firing is done at the standard 200 yard High Power target which has an approximately 13 inch aiming black. Any shot in the black scores 1 point. Shooters may wear battle dress if they like. No High Power shooting coats or slings are allowed. Prizes are given for the high shooter and high shooters for both Axis and Allied rifles.

SCHUETZENFEST

 This modern day game is a near reenactment of the great rifle matches of 100 years ago. Shot at 200 yards using strictly plain base cast bullets and single shot rifles, it requires patience, precision techniques, and a steady off-hand stance.

HUNTER BENCHREST

This is a informal non-sanctioned bench rest competition using bulls eye targets. 50 shots total; 25 at 100 yards and 25 at 200 yards. Sighting targets are provided. The limits are no rifle over .30 caliber and maximum 6X scope.
