End the Year with a Bang at Pala Range

Two varmint silhouette “fun” matches will be held at the Pala Range (near Temecula, CA) in the next two weekends. Join the fun at the year-end “Chili Shoot” on December 30th, and send out 2007 with a bang.

This Sunday, 12/30, Pala hosts a special end of year varmint shoot. Match organizer Harold will offer his famous Elk chili after the shoot. Feel free to bring a guest, and let John Adams (jadams009 [at] know if you need a loaner rifle. As usual the range opens for sighters at 8 am, while the match starts at 9:15 am.

At Pala varmint shoots, max caliber is 6.5mm, to limit target damage. Typically you see a BR-style rifle, with a heavy, 28-30″ barrel, often using a muzzle brake. You need a very accurate chambering, so you’ll see 6BRs, Dashers, 6-284s, 6.5-284s, and a few 6mm Remingtons.

The first regularly-scheduled match of 2008 will be the next weekend, Sunday, January 6. It is rumored that BR ace Lou Murdica may show up and NBRSA 600-yard champ Don Nielson may also attend.
