Competitions that limit scope magnification

Post by ash_hendo » 18 Mar 2024, 4:37 pm

I seem to remember there was a SSAA competition that limited scope power to 4x but I can't find any reference to it.

22lr Benchrest seems to be limited to 6x but I can't find any limited to 4x

Does anyone out there know of any?

Thanks!!

Combined Services Discipline has some comps for original or replica issue sniper rifles that have limits, as does the new International Optics class which is 4x max.

MRCA "sniper" matches have the "classic modified" category, limited to x4, but it technically needs to be on a military action, military caliber. Generally runs once a month - the last sunday. http://www.mrca.com.au/2024-documents/2 ... lendar.pdf
At what point does lack of maintenance become patina?
