Major F-Class Championships in Wisconsin and New Mexico

USA F-Class Team Member Larry Bartholome reminds us that two major F-Class Championships are coming up soon. Larry notes: “Both matches will be large events with many international class shooters in attendance. You can learn a great deal from these people and gain bragging rights if you beat them. I hope to see you at both events.”

The first major event is the 2nd U.S. F-Class Fullbore Nationals which will take place in conjunction with the 7th SOA/2nd U.S. Fullbore Prone Championships. This match will be held September 7-13, 2008 at the Whittington Center in Raton, NM. With up to 100 target frames available the match is not likely to be over-subscribed.

Two weeks after the event in Raton, the Fifth Annual U.S. F-Class Nationals will be held in Lodi, Wisconsin on October 1-4, 2008. Entries for this match have been maxed out for quite sometime, with 140 people signed up and a waiting list in case the gas prices get too high for some. However, it’s not too late to get on the waiting list.

F-Class Open Rifles
The Open Division of F-Class shoots scoped match rifles from the ground. Either front rest or bipod is allowed. There is no restriction on calibers, and 6mms, 6.5mms, and 7mm chamberings are all popular. The USA F-Class Open Rifle team all uses 6.5-284 rifles at this time.
