2019 Rule modification: Long Range Rifle
« on: July 16, 2018, 12:52:32 pm »
As per the Brigade Staff meeting post 2018 Grand Muster:

Starting with the 2019 Grand Muster,  the Long Range rifle component of the match will be shot with the same rifle as used in the Skirmish runs, with the required exceptions of Handgunner and Forager.

 This is largely a reflection of current practice, while hopefully preventing specialization of multiple firearms.  This also insures the competitor is always scored in the correct class.
Civilize them with a Krag . . .

Generally use the same rifle, this year thought I would mix it up and see how the Mosin Nagant worked, answer not well enough

Hi Chuck

Dang it, I was going to use a Cavalry Krag to shoot Skirmish and an Infantry Krag to shoot Long Range.  The main idea was to not mix lead and copper fouling.  The Carbine is still at Murray's, and the longer one is in the kitchen in pieces.

No problem Mike, I believe lead projectiles will travel 300 yards!
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!
