Targets will be scored and times will be announced, but since there are no valuable prizes, you will be shooting purely for the glory of sport! Shooters must pre- register with a $20 participation fee which will entitle you to a commemorative t-shirt and a BBQ lunch. The guns: This is a big bore, dangerous game rifle shoot. Essentially .375/9.3 caliber or larger, single shot, bolt action or double rifles. If you have a double rifle in a diameter smaller than .375/9.3 but capable of taking big game then bring it! If you have a lever gun that shoots 405/45-70/450 caliber magnum rounds then you are welcome to bring that also. Single shot, double barrel or bolt action 10/12/20 gauge guns firing single lead balls or slugs will also be allowed. Sorry, but no "big bore" AR’s and no pump or auto shotguns. This is all about fun and practice so bring what you have and let’s shoot! You will need about 30 rounds. ABSOLUTELY NO LIGHT LOADS! Please arrive early to check in and get setup. Remember to bring chairs and sunscreen. After the shoot is concluded we invite family and friends to try some of the different stages with their non-safari caliber rifles. Please call Jay at 406-293-4451 or email safaririflechallenge@yaho o.com to sign up or request more information.
