That would mean a crazy amount of classes 3 per cartridge

22s 3
22l 3
22lr 3
17hmr 3
17hm2 3
5mm rem 3
22wrm 3

That would be 21 different classes and 21 different shoots for one person to keep track of. I am sorry That is just way to much. For now we will stick to to the format laid out. In the future I make break it in to 22lr and everything else.

So, in my area, they are asking for at least $6.50 for CCI Mini-Mags now. I can't use Mini-Mags? That is just silly-putting a monetary limit on rimfire stuff, imo.

You're forgetting mini-mags come 100 to a box for 7$. That translates to 3.50 per 50.

I threw that in there to test the water. If they are asking outrageous prices for ammo then it looks like we will do away with it.

There is no reason to go and get upset. Nothing is set in stone YET. June 1 when I post it everything will then be set in stone. So just relax and have a beer skull.....

I also don't think it is far for one guy to be shooting $15 a box Eley Tenx ammo or or Other super high end match grade stuff.

Math is not my strong point, bear. Thanks anyways.

1st of all, not getting upset. Just curious on the monetary limits on ammo when ammo is not priced the same everywhere. That is all.

2nd, I'm saying that if it matters so much to win or take advantage in a handshake rimfire contest, let them spend the stupid amounts of $ on ammo. Otherwise we'd better post receipts, pics, notorized targets, at least 3 signed witnesses...for fun is for fun. Jmho.

peace

How about set a type or brand of ammo. Say x brand and x weight for 22's and then x brand and weight for 17hmr, so forth and so on. Ill go buy it and then its all good.

I agree with skull. Use what ever ammo you want. this is just for fun. If you are so hell bent to win nothing that you are going to cheat then you are totally missing the point of all of this.

This is all stuff I want hashed out before we start this. Because once it starts it is set. Only a few things will change month to month, like targets and scope power.
