.40 Bore Rule Change
Posted: February 10, 2014 at 5:42 pm by Nick Wagner
40 bore has a new rule change. Shooters may now use 30 caliber or larger rifles. .30 to .399 rifles must be lever action or rolling blocks with iron sights only. There will be two classes, one for rifles .30 to .399 caliber and another for .40 caliber and larger. Then both classes will be combined for an overall winner. With allowing .30 caliber and larger it will bring all those old 30-30’s, 35’s, 358’s 32-40’s and a host of other calibers out of the closet and give them renewed life at the shooting range. Shooters are encouraged to shoot in both classes using two different rifles. The new rules will become active at our next match March 8th. You no longer have an excuse not to shoot this fun match, hope to see you there. 40 bore matches are always the second Saturday of the month, 12 months a year starting at 10am at our 50 yard range.
