Rimfire Steel events are designed to introduce participants to the fun and excitement of competition shooting in a safe low pressure family friendly atmosphere.
Rimfire Steel events are Rimfire Challenge-style matches designed to be completed by shooters of all levels without the need to reload “on the clock”. The main goal is to hit all the steel targets in the course of fire as quickly as possible. Normal Stage (scenario) has 5 to 7 targets. Each Stage (scenario) has 5 Strings of fire.
Rimfire Steel events generally follow Rimfire Challenge rules. It is the responsibility of all participants, volunteers or spectators to be familiar with the rules and especially understand those which are safety oriented.
All Firearms are to safely use .22 long rifle ammunition.
