The third annual King of the Hill registration is live!

The match is set for Sunday August 27th, 2023 and as before the practice day will be Saturday, August 26th.

There has been one event swapped out in the format this year. The 300 yard group shoot has been replaced by a timed event on the gong sets on the Silhouette side.

Now is the chance for all shooters with magazine fed rifles to really shine. 6 impacts for time will decide the winner of that event!

Deadline to register AND receive the KOTH merchandise is July 15th, 2023.

Please feel free to forward to any interested parties.

All details are in the attached documents.

See you in August!

The dates for the 2023 King of the Hill competition at Rosebud have been set for the final weekend in August.

Competition day is Sunday, August 27th.
As before, Saturday will be a practice day for all competitors to get their zeros for the multiple yardages on competition day.

This is a single rifle event for the entire competition.

Competition day is a cold bore event. Competitors need to be zeroed prior to the event.

Important changes in the course of fire;
The 300 yard group event has been eliminated.
In its place there will be timed/multiple yardage event on the silhouette range.

Preliminary course of fire looks as follows:
Event 1 - 300 yard score shoot
Event 2 - timed event with multiple yardages on silhouette range
Event 3 - 500 metre gong event

As well, thanks to a generous offer by one of the prize table sponsors, prize money will be greater this year.

Stay tuned to this space for signup instructions and finalized course of fire and rules.

Good luck to all competitors!

« on: March 18, 2023, 07:14:38 PM »
Stinger Ballistics is pleased to report that Rick Pollock had an excellent showing in Phoenix, AZ at the 2023 Cactus Classic.

Shooting the 6mm 64g FB Killer Bee Rick placed; 

-First Place in Light Varmint 200 Yards
-Fourth Place in the Light Varmint Grand Aggregate
-Fourth Place in the 2-Gun Championship

Quoting Rick
"Attached is the last target I shot in the Cactus Classic. I shot this using the 6mm 64g Flat Base Killer Bees.
With this target I moved from 3rd place after 4 targets, to 1st Place, to win the LV 200 yard aggregate.
It was quite a windy day and the bullets really hung together in the wind. Keep them coming."

See attached pictures for results and a picture of the 0.334" group shot at 200 yards.

Congratulations Rick on a great result!

-Tyler Edmunds and Vic Edmunds for getting the 300 yard target frames in shape for a competition
-to our great sponsors that stepped up for the prize table: Hugh Williamson Precision, Korth Group, March Canada, Plenty O' Patches and Stinger Ballistics

Club Events / Re: 2021 King of the Hill (500m gongs)
« on: August 02, 2021, 07:41:28 PM »
For the 500m gong shoot we will be using the gongs shown in the video below
Video was shot from the firing line with smoke and mirage conditions, so bear with us on the quality.

Please note a LED light system has been placed on the large gong to indicate hits. The 2 smaller gongs swing visibly when hit and are easier to identify. 

Large gong 16" diameter (all dimensions approximate) 1 point
Medium gong 8" 5 Points
Small gong 4"   15 Points

You will have 7 minutes to fire 7 scoring rounds. There are no sighters allowed.
Competitors will shoot the course twice for a total of 14 scoring rounds.

Competitor must declare the gong size prior to shooting. The scorekeeper/judge will only declare hit or miss.

Club Events / Re: 2021 King of the Hill (300 yard score target)
« on: July 20, 2021, 04:00:25 PM »
For the 300 yard score shoot, we will be using the regulation 200 yard score target, BUT set at 300 yards.
You will note 6 bulls on the target. 5 bulls are for record, 1 bull in the bottom right is reserved for "sighters" and marked with "S".

A single shot must be placed in each of the 5 "record" bulls. The bulls are 6" across.

The center ring is the "10 Ring". Touching or breaking the 10 ring will count as 10 points. Touching the center dot will count as 11 points.
The sighter target illustrates the points available as you progress away from the center. Final outside ring is worth 5 points.

More than one shot on a record bull will be scored with the worst shot.

Shots landing outside the rings and still in the "record" area will be scored zero. The shot must be touching a ring to earn points.

Competitor score is the total points from the 5 record shots.

There are no limits on sighter shots.

« on: July 20, 2021, 03:30:29 PM »
For those interested in the 300 group yard target, we will be using the official 300 yard benchrest target.
You will note in the image below, There are two areas, one is the "record" target (above) and one below is the "sighter" area (marked with an "S").
You can shoot as many shots into the "sighter" target as you may require, even between record rounds to check for changing wind conditions.

Your group in the "record" area needs 5 shots to count.
More than 5 in the "record" area, will be scored across the 2 shots farthest apart.
