2013 Allegheny Sniper Cup (ASC) — Ashbury Shooters Report

ASC Allegheny Sniper Challenge

The 2013 Allegheny Sniper Challenge (ASC) took place May 17-19, in West Virginia. The ASC is a competitive tactical rifle match held in the mountains west of Seneca Rocks, West Virginia. It offers a relaxed but extremely challenging course of fire that includes high-angle and high-wind shooting with typical shots ranging between 200 and 1000 yards with varying degrees of complexity. Weather conditions can change dramatically over the course of the three-day event.

Our friends at Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) attended this year’s ASC match. APO’s Aaron Dearborn has posted a lengthy ASC match report on the APO Blog. Aaron writes: “We’d like to thank John and Rod from ASC for conducting yet another great practical rifle match in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. It was three days of Magnum Rifles, Short Barrels, Heavy Bullets, and Wiley Winds! The APO shooting team had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our team shot custom ASW300 Winchester Magnums with Pinnacle Series 20″ barrels and Ruag 220gr Swiss-P match ammo. The average muzzle velocity [for] the two rifles is 2575 fps and they are very maneuverable!”

Aaron said the 2013 ASC lived up to expectations, and then some: “Rod and Jon outdid themselves with the selection of targets and shooting stages. They continue to push shooters out of their comfort zones and are always thinking up new ways to increase the stress during shooting in order to improve the core of shooters who compete in ASC matches. And as long as I am able to attend, I will continue to strive toward becoming a better shooter.”

The customized SABER modular rifle chassis designed for the Army Sniper Association is based on APO’s very popular MOD-0 chassis platform with the addition of important features:

  • Hand-Tool Adjustable (HTA) Folding Stock with Limbsaver Recoil Pad.
  • ERGO Hand Grip with adjustable Grip to Trigger Distance.
  • DBM with Ambidextrous Magazine Release.
  • SuperSport Tactical Alloy Fore-End with Bipod Stud.
  • 12″ Picatinny Side Accessory Rails and 8 Sling Swivel Attachment Points.

“We have configured the Army Sniper Association’s Modular Rifle Chassis around the two most popular rifles around”, says Morris Peterson, President of Ashbury Int’l Group. These are “the Remington short action and long action[.] Now shooters can make their existing or new Remington bolt-action rifles functionally modular and more comfortable to shoot accurately.” For those shooters with an M24-styled rifle based on a Rem M700 long action, but chambered for the .308 Win cartridge, APO has just introduced the RLA-A3 option offering a 5-round or 10-round detachable magazine. A wide range of SABER modular rifle chassis accessories are available from Ashbury Precision Ordnance.
