Tactical Rifle Matches

Come out to the beautiful COSSA ranges and shoot long range with that tactical bolt gun, AR-10, or AR-15 at steel targets from 150 -1000 yards! These matches will be shot over varying terrain and positions. Angles, side hills, you name it, we got it! The matches will be realistic and fun. The stages and overall matches will be designed to help you improve your long range shooting skills and capabilities under match conditions. Nothing better than hearing that steel ring at longer ranges, picking that rifle up and moving to the next challenge! These matches are limited to rounds at 3250 FPS and below and are typically shot with non belted calibers. We encourage .308, 30/06, etc. or any caliber that won’t drastically reduce the life of our steel. Any green tip or steel core ammo is strictly forbidden. We have magnets available so please ask if you are unsure. This is a new discipline to COSSA and is a quickly growing shooting sport around the world. We are proud to be able to offer it. Watch our match calendar for the next match day! Typical Match Equipment:

  • Rifle – any scoped bolt action or semi-auto rifle smaller than .338. All long guns require chamber flags
  • Accessories – Wind reading equipment, barometer, Shooting mat, etc.
