Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Shooting Record: Soldier Nails Perfect Score in High-Power Event with Service Rifle

Go Army!

Quote:
A member of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit’s Service Rifle Team landed all 80 rounds in the 10-ring at a High-Power Rifle Course earlier this month.

The competitor, Sgt. Benjamin Cleland of Swanton, Ohio, pulled off the feat at the National Rifle Association’s 2019 Charlie Smart Memorial Regional in Oak Ridge, Tennessee on June 2, with a score of 800-34x. This means Cleland not only notched 80 back-to-back hits in the 10-ring but that 34 of those nailed the even smaller “X” ring at the target’s dead center. For reference, at 600 yards, the 10-ring measures 12 inches while the “X” is 6 inches.

No scopes on rifles are permitted by shooters on line, in service rifle competitions.

Only a spotting scope NOT attached to the rifle in any way to allow the shooter to observe the strike location of his shots in order to make corrections to shots fired and to observe his score. The scorer is also permitted a spotting scope but NO COACHING by scorer is permitted. Shooting at service Rifle Matches are from 200 yds, standing offhand, 300 yds kneeling or sitting rapid fire, and prone at 600 yds slow fire.

Scopes are permitted in Long Distance matches...like The Palma. But no one is shooting a service rifle in those matches.

I thought that also, but I guess they've changed the rules because ACOG scopes are now being issued in Marine Corps and Army Basic training and so considered a part of the service weapon. Just limited to 4x and lower power.

That's incredible. I have a friend who can hardly get on paper at 100 yards, with a model 70 in 300 Win mag, equipped with a 3x9 Leopold VXII.

Would have to guess competitor in question was using the AR platform. Seems most have gone to that from what I've read.

Perhaps the rules have changed and scopes are permitted in the new pussified service rifle events. The Sargent's perfect score is thus not so impressive. What's next? Allowing steady rests for the rifle?

BS. I have seen perfect scores at Hi-Power events. Back around 1996 an 18 year old blak Marine shot a "Happy Face" into the X ring at two hundred yards standing offhand. He went on to shoot a perfect 200 score for that stage and then went on to win the match with a perfect score.

Unfortunately they have, 5.56 and scopes have wreaked the sport. it's a big accomplishment but its just not relatable to shooting real service rifles like the m1 and M14 with Iron sights.

If they are going to call it a "record" they should give it its own class. You simply cannot compare a perfect score using iron sights and a .30 caliber round to a score obtained using magnification and a low-recoiling .22 round.

It reminds me of the cops at the indoor range getting pissed off because I was cutting bullseyes out of my targets and making smiley faces while shooting my bull barreled 22/45 (.22LR) target pistol with a red dot sight. They were all over the paper at 7 yards and when they looked at my target, they got pissed off and packed up their gear and left.
