Talking High Power Rifle


Catawba Valley Rifle and Pistol Club held its first High Power Rifle Match in several years today. After a winter storm blew into the Catawba Valley just 36 hours before the Match competitors arrived at the range greeted by a cool 26 degrees.
The day began sunny and slowly warmed throughout the day.

We had 8 competitors shoot the match with a few spectators.
The match was geared for the “New to Matches” shooter.
We had 4 of 8 who were new to matches!

The match was a all Prone Match to exercise the fundamentals in the prone position. It was the very first time for some shooting with match rifles, coats and gloves! We are looking forward to many more HP Matches in the near future!

1. Slow fire- 10 shots 225 yards (200 yard line under water)
2. Rapid fire – 10 shots 225 yards. 2 strings of 10.
3. Rapid fire – 10 shots 300 yards. 2 strings of 10.
4. Slow fire- 10 shots 300 yards
Total of 600 aggregate.

Looking forward to shooting some service rifle Randy, Thank You again for taking such a Lead on this.

In case it assists any others, I came across an old reference I’ve relied on in the past for packing ahead of Match Day (below is pretty extensive and I only pack half of what Mr. Poole travels with):

Bill Poole, several years old, updated Dec-99.

This is a list of equipment that is needed or useful for shooting in High Power Rifle Competitions, including National Match Course, Regional Match Course, Palma Match or Long Range. Most of the gear is usable in smallbore competition too.

Everything goes in or on my stool and to the line, except for *

Most everything lives in the stool in the garage, except for ammo stays inside, food & water goes in the night before and the gun lives in the safe.


RIFLE CASE (hard for long drives*, soft for the range)

sling on rifle
cleaning rod *
