Rocky to be LEG match legal it has to look externally like a rifle issued by the US military. M1s, M14s and AR15s are currently accepted. It must have at least a 4 1/2 pound trigger. The match is shot at 200 yards, 300 yards and 600 yards.
At 200 & 300 yards I shoot 75 grain Hornady HPBTs over 24 grains of RL15. At 600 I shoot Nosler 80 grainers over 24 grains of RL15.
Thanks. I shot in 7 matches last week and only shot well in 1. With the M1 and 1903A3 I didn't dry fire enough to get used to the trigger. Consequently I shot poorly in standing in extraordinarly windy conditions. But I had more fun than I have had in years.
