High-Power Rifle Programs


Director: Jim Schieltz

High-Power Rifle

High-Power rifle shines at Lima SABRES with regularly ocurring matches up to 300 yards!

Firing under cover is available at 25, 50, 75, 100 and 200 yards. However, there is only ONE firing line, and all shots must impact the berm. Multiple heavy benches are available or the shooter may place their mat on the concrete line and fire from any position if they choose. Practice and firing from our 300 yard line is offered regularly and available during these times only.

With seasonal matches and clinics scheduled at least twice a month, our opportunities for high-power rifle shooting are unequaled in the area and are second to none.

Club rifles, ammunition (* Fee involved) and other required equipment are available for loan to the beginning high-power shooter. Contact Jim Schieltz one week prior to match 567-204-5748

Junior High-Power Shooting

Lima SABRES offers the area's only Junior high-power shooting available for no cost. Junior shooters are guided under the watchful eye of club members and experienced high-power rifle shooters as they participate in club matches. Offered during regularly scheduled matches, the junior shooter should possess the fundamentals of position rifle shooting, safe handling of firearms and ideally, some competition experience. Target pulling is required of all participants.

Club rifles, ammunition (* free for juniors) and other required equipment are available to loan the beginning high-power shooter.
