Ain't figured that out yet!! What you think?

Ammo -- probably around 500 rounds to shoot .... I am bringing another 1000 rounds of steel cased (Wolf) in case additional is needed by some ...

Re: Camp McCain

My guess is that red dot is gonna be hard to shoot at 300m. Mine is hard to shoot at 100 yards. I'm taking mine off and going with irons. I did it in the Army years ago, hopefully I can still see that far. LOL!

I agree. Using the "8/3" setting on A2 sights. However, you need to get your front sight "zeroed".

My question is..... How far above POA (Point of Aim) should the bullets hit at say 100yds (or 200yds)?

Like many of you.... I need to spend time on the range to prepare for the Camp McCain trip.

SGF - Good question?? I thought would be that it may vary depending on the ballistics of the round used ... weight/velocity ... ??

You certainly do not have to bring 500 rounds to have a good time. The Course of Fire (COF) is 40 rounds. However, you may want to shoot it multiple times!! 500 may be a stretch!! :lol:

Re: Camp McCain

5 runs at 40rds per run = 200rds. NOTE: You will not be limited to only 5 runs.

The total number of runs depends on...............

1. How much you want to shoot.

2. How long each relay takes.

3. How many people attend.

With 16 foxholes that allows for many shooter. However, some people will have to be ROs during a relay.

Captain correct me if I am wrong, but I think a COF lasted 3-5 minutes. Since we don't go downrange to score, that will save time.

I see 10 to 15 minutes between relays. 10 minutes for relays in which you stay in the foxhole between relays, and 15 minutes when new shooters move into foxholes. Also to help save time, I say that a shooter could shoot up to 3 consecutive relays (with different firearms if desired if those firearms are brought to the foxhole when you first arrive at your foxhole. No leaving the foxhole to go get another firearm.) Remember to bring enough ammo to shoot all 3 relays if that is your plan. No extra ammo will be brought to you.
