The 2016 22 BPCR National Match will be held at the
Whittington Center near Raton, New Mexico on July 15-17, 2016
22 BPCR silhouette is patterned after the big bore black powder cartridge rifle silhouette program. We us the same traditional single shot rifle actions with 22 rimfire ammunition to knock down steel chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams. The targets are placed at 50, 100, 150, and 200 meters respectively. The shooter works with a spotter and has eight and a half minutes for unlimited sighter shots and ten shots for score. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? I forgot to tell you, the targets are kind of small. Chickens are shot off hand while the other three targets may be shot from any position. Most shooters shoot prone with cross sticks at the longer targets.
There are a number of clubs and ranges around the country hosting 22BPCRA style matches. Annual Membership in the organization is $15 per year for adults and free for Juniors (16 yrs and under) and sponsored by a parent or guardian.
