Default Appleseed Question

Ok, so I'm looking to attend a couple appleseed's in the near future, but I was wondering what kind of stick most people bring to these events?

I was planning on building an SKS for this purpose (and just to have an SKS), but found that most appleseeds say specifically "no SKS's". So what do you guys recommend? 10/22? Or will my rem 700 22-250 be just fine?

Got a rimfire? Make sure to bring that then bring a centerfire.

For the rimfire bring at least 1000 rounds of ammo and if you bring a centerfire as well bring 500 rounds for that.

Only the appleseeds in my area (central california) have the "no sks" rule from the looks of it. Ok, so I need to get a rimfire in my line up. Surprisingly enough, I don't have one.

Most appleseed matches here shoot .22 rim fire bolt rifles. However, you can shoot larger caliber centerfire if you want. As I understand it they shoot very small targets with iron sights as short range. (Like 25 to 50 yds) It would seem easy to shoot at these short range distances but you would be surprised how challenging it can be.

Most folks use 10/22's around here. I took a Savage MKII & will take my Remington 597 to the next one I go to. There were a few AR15's & a couple of SKS rifles & one old guy had a M1. We only shot at 27 feet, so the centerfire weapons weren't really needed. Apple seed is a good event & one that everybody should try to attend at least once.

The no SKS thing has got to be a range rule. Appleseed is all about teaching you to shoot "what you bring" up to 8mm Mauser.

Most of the instruction is at 25 meters (82') with 22s being the recommended platform. This saves on the cost of ammo.

I have seen just about any rifle you can think of at an Appleseed event.

If you have not been to one, GO. You will not be disappointed. They are not a competition, they are geared to teaching you the skill set to be able to hit a man sized target at 500 yards, the Rifleman's quarter mile.

Go to Appleseed Project Home for more information and a location near you that is hosting an event.

Appleseed is a non-profit, all volunteer group, teaching our fellow Americans of our Heritage of Rifle Marksmanship.

Or maybe no SKS in California because your masters are afraid of them??

So, I guess my "street crime, go to gun" 50 bmg is outside the parameters of Appleseed???
