MOA Challenge

Recommended Posts

Yesterday saw the first of a series of competitions called the MOA Challenge 

 

These are being held at Gardner Guns in Southern Scotland at one of the ranges there

 

The Challenge sits perfectly as a test of a rifleman’s skill to use their weapon effectively shooting MOA targets from 200 mtrs in 100 meter increments out to 1000 mtrs and from there at further distances of 1036, 1302 and 1437 mtrs (1500 yds)

 

The course of fire was a single cold bore shot at 200 followed by five on the 300 target then moving to 400 - 3 shots, 500 - 3 shots and so on 

 

One shot hitting any of the distances allows you to progress to the next distance - miss all three at any given target and that’s you out of the comp

 

The targets are all steel plates, hit indication is good (spotting scopes were used for scoring) 

 

The targetry was laid out in an arc of about 130 degrees making wind call interesting due to angular changes 

 

Everyone attending, ans I mean everyone had smiles on their faces and genuinely enjoyed the experience. Quite a few people attended who I used to shoot with in the F Class and Tactical  competitive community who I haven’t seen for years - it was really good to catch up with them again 

 

People attended from a variety of shooting backgrounds and it was an interesting mix 

 

The competition is divided into various classes 

 

22 Rf (at RF distances)

 

223 and below 

 

Short Action

 

Long Action up to 338 LM

 

Above 338 LM

 

Multiple entries are allowed 

 

The day was very well run and very enjoyable 

 

The furthest target successfully engaged was 1036 mtrs (1133 yards)

Those further proved elusive in the conditions 

 

A few pics with some more to follow;

I’m working out my schedule at the minute to make sure I’m there. 

Yeah I planned on taking it to the one on the 6th so I’m interested to see how it performs.
