Orofino, ID -(AmmoLand.com)- This past weekend concluded the 2016 Nightforce Precision Tactical 2 Rifle Match.
The match was a success for unveiling and proofing a new match format, one where competitors fire both carbines and precision rifles on the same stages. This was a field match, held across the Coal Canyon area of the NRA Whittington Center. Targets and shooting positions were placed across the natural terrain instead of on a traditional square range.
Competitors fired over 200 rounds of carbine and up to 100 rounds of precision rifle across the 10 stages. Carbine targets ranged from as close as 3 yards to as far as 400 yards. Precision rifle targets ranged between 300 and 890 yards. At the start of each stage, all competitors had to carry their gear and configure their rifles and shooting positions on the clock.
Congratulations to the following shooters on their Top 5 finish:
- Collin Fossen – 1st
- Tyler Payne – 2nd
- Brad Riley – 3rd
- Reid Driscoll – 4th
- Matt Sweeney – 5th
