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.
Sanner’s Lake CMP Rimfire Sporter Match Report
12 June 2021
The day started off cool and misty, with some light drizzle here and there, but by the end of two relays of rimfire the sun was out and the scores were in the books. A solid turnout of six shooters shrugged off the foggy mist and put down some decent scores, including new shooter Jessica Reider who showed the guys how to do it, coming in second place in the optical sights division...an excellent showing for her first time out!
Thanks to everybody who helped set up for the match and put everything back in order afterwards. Next match is on 10 July, see you there!
