Charles "Curtis" Jones shared Donald Goodner's group status from group: Rifle Sports 6 years ago

Past World Games in the USA have allowed NRA type equipment. I shot a AR space gun in the 2001 Games in Indianapolis. nRealistically, if you want decent attendance you need to allow NRA equipment. You also need to get someone in there who actually knows HiPower rifle competition. The direction of Mr. Carroll posts tells me he does not understand the game.

So far the large bore competition looks to be set up for issf European rules which very few are familiar with. I cannot get any clarification on equipment other than look at the rule book that noone seems to understand. Having shot in the 2011 games and the police nationals for many years where it was explained in advance that NRA rules would apply being that most of the shooters will be from here. Can we shoot space rifles / tube guns which are NRA legal and what class do match rifles fall... Show more

Earliest decision for Large Bore events would be appreciated. This would help shooters decide what to bring or have built.

Craig Luecke Curtis, I know you have asked a few questions regarding the large bore events. We have been working on a coordinator which is why I haven't personally attempted to answer the questions. I will email a few people personally and see if I can get some... Show more 6 years ago

Craig Luecke Curtis, What additional information are you looking for beyond the sports rules? Is there something specific you are needing? Maybe you are not aware of the rules and divisions already stated in the rules that were posted a while ago. You can find... Show more Loading content, please wait. 6 years ago

Waiting for the sport rules to be posted.

Craig Luecke Hey Curtis! We are waiting for them from the WPFG Federation. It's one of the things that is beyond our control. We will make contact with them today and get an update on the status. I know you've been waiting patiently for them just like us. Sorry... Show more 6 years ago

Quantico has more than one HiPower KD range and they are all next to each other.
You might be able to run two different competitions at the same time and work in National Match, 300 meter prone and a midrange palma in the 2 days scheduled.

Will Pistol Center Fire be at the NRA Range or elsewhere?

Craig Luecke Curtis, Center Fire was just removed from our program after consulting with the WPFGF. The other two pistol events remain and will be held at the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy Shooting Range. 7 years ago

Any chance of paid target pullers for Large Bore Rifle events? It would make things move smoothly and faster. Experienced shooters would not mind the cost.

Looks like the Hipower/Large Bore schedule needs a 3rd day if you are going to offer both the 300 meter Prone and a Palma and NM Service Rifle.

LARGE BORE RIFLE - If factory match 308 WIN ammo for rifle is available or required and the shoot is out to 1000 yards it must either be the 155 grain bullet Palma load(less choices) or one of the 175 grain bullet loads (more choices). The 175 SMK will work in barrels with a 1 in 13 twist.
The 168 SMK bullet does not perform well at 1000 yards. IT would be fine for a mid range Palma to 600 yards.

Mark Notter I doubt the WPFG will will provide ammunition or require it to be purchased on site. I don't recall that happening in the past games. 7 years ago

I would suggest a Mid Range Palma rather than full size to make it more attractive and not have to worry about the ammo issue at 1,000 yards.
Also, yes to waiving the NM Rifle course of fire. It is virtually impossible for anyone from outside the USA to be equipped for it.

RE: Hi-Power rifle(large bore not long bore) any chance for a day of Palma style in addition to American Style and 300 meter prone.

Charles "Curtis" Jones Also, a lot of rifle shooters will want to do all rifle events. You might check for scheduling conflicts between Air, Smallbore and HiPower. 8 years ago

Charles "Curtis" Jones i also suggest an arrangement with a dealer for ammo, so that 223 Match , 308 Match and 22LR Match would be available for purchase(those that fly with firearms often have the most hassle over the ammo).
Also, paid (and trained) target pullers for...

Forest "Terry" Taylor I agree with Curtis re his suggestions. I just competed in the Large Bore events in Belfast and the Mid-Range Palma (300,500 & 600 yrd) event was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone. I have competed in the CPAF Games since 1980 and have been to... Show more 7 years ago
