CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Match

Samuel Payne is the only competitor to ever fire a perfect score of 600 in the Rimfire Sporter Match

The CMP National Rimfire Sporter Match offers shooters a recreation oriented competition where they use smallbore  sporter rifles (plinking and small game rimfire rifles) commonly owned by almost all gun enthusiasts. This is a unique match where all you need is a rifle and ammo. The Rimfire Sporter course of fire is challenging, new shooters can successfully complete it while experienced shooters find it uniquely challenging. Firing is done at 50 and 25 yards on a target with a 1.78" ten-ring and an 18" outer one-ring. The target is simple enough for a beginner to hit, yet challenging enough that only one competitor in the history of the match has ever fired a perfect 600x600 score. See below for More Info and our upcoming matches. Additional info can be found on the in this CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Guide and on the  CMP Sporter Rifle website.

Current Match Results

All,

It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday with low wind and 5 guys with some really fine target rifles. We had a great time. The winner of the match was Jake Swierczek who managed to squeak out a win against his dad Mark. High score and most bullseyes 581/22. Jake was shooting a custom 10/22 and I am told the only thing Ruger made was the pins. This one sported an aluminum composite steel lined barrel with an aluminum frame and adjustable stock. Very cool. Mark had another custom 10/22 that had the thumb hole stock with a graphite composite over steel barrel. We had two newcomers who shared a CZ455 American. This is a really cool rifle that comes with 3 barrels so one can shoot, 22LR, 17HMR, and 22WMR.  A gift for his dad from Matt, he also put together a very fine wood rifle case with his grandfather that everyone was impressed with. I brought my first bolt action 22, a Ruger Precision rifle. The rifle is fully adjustable from the trigger to the length and comb. My score doesn’t reflect this but It shoots 10 rounds on a dime from the bench. I did notice that my score improved from last month! See the scores below or in the May Match report.

So really great to see everyone and hope to see you all at our next event on 2 June (first Saturday).
