BELOW YOU WILL FIND INFORMATION ABOUT EACH OF THE EVENTS THAT HAPPEN DURING THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN AIRGUN CHALLENGE.
The Garth Killpack Shooting Range in Hobble Creek Canyon is one of the toughest ranges to shoot at. With wind howling down the canyon in the morning and switching back and forth mid-day, this event will test competitors’ patience, skills and adaptability. The benchrest event will be held in 3 different rounds this year:
- 2 Qualifying Rounds at 100 Yards.
- 1 Final Round at 100 Yards.
Shooters will have a 30 minute round to shoot 25 targets with 25 total shots. Pellet guns up to .35 caliber may be used with mass production diabolo pellets only.
*A full list of detailed rules can be found under the “Rules” tab above.
The Precision Marksman Challenge Course is why the Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge was created. PRS type shooting events have exploded in popularity in recent years. Shooters will be required to shoot from a variety of different positions and obstacles (prone, standing, barricades, etc) under time pressure. Most of the targets will be reactive steel. This event will challenge competitors and we can guarantee the best all-around shooters will come out on top. Be prepared to shoot tough targets from tough positions out past 100 yards.
*In 2022 we will allow both slugs & pellets to be shot in this event.
***Please be aware the Precision Marksman Challenge is a physically demanding event. You will be required to move from different positions (for example: Prone to Sitting to Standing). For the safety of volunteers and other shooters, we would ask that you would only compete if you are physically able & ready.***
The 2021 RMAC Speed Challenge was probably the most fun and talked about event of the whole competition! The finals had everyone on their feet cheering and yelling. This years Speed Challenge will only be bigger, faster and more competitive. All shooters will be randomly drawn in to 8-10 person squads before the event starts and you will compete head-to-head against the people in your squad throughout the Speed Challenge.
There will be a number of different stages set up with different courses of fire. At each stage, everyone will draw to be paired against a fellow squad mate. Those two competitors will then race through the outlined course of fire as fast as possible. The winner will then take the points for that stage.
***Please be aware the Speed Challenge also may have physically demanding stages.***
If you don’t have a slug shooting airgun, you should go buy one just to compete in this event! The courses will be shooting steel from 75-300 yards. This event will show how powerful and accurate some of these slugging airguns are.
- Guns must be shooting a minimum of 140 ft lbs for this event.
*This year we will be combining the Small Bore event into the Precision Marksman Challenge.
