Using .22 caliber rifles at 300 yards is quite the feat and all members and non-members are welcome to join this growing league.
The Buffalo League will shoot metallic knockdown buffalo silhouette’s with .22 rimfire. There are classes for:
- Open Sights
- Tang Sights
The distance we will shoot at these targets is 300 yards.
The first Tuesday will be to set up equipment and have fun shooting at the buffs informally. The reason for this is that we may not have enough light to get full sets in for everyone and it will take some time for everyone to get their equipment as they want it. Then there will be an 8 week spring session and8 week summer session in a league format. We plan to be ready to shoot 11:00 am until dusk.

The End of Season Party is scheduled for September 5th.
Rifle range in use from 11:00 am until dusk for the Buffalo League.
A few hints to get ready:
- If you can sight your rifle in at 35 yards to shoot 13.5 inches high you will be close at 300 yards.
- If you can not adjust to 18 inches high a 0.003 shim under the rear scope ring will do it. Burris signature rings set with 0.015 down front and 0.015 up back is an elegant way to do this.
- Hyper velocity stuff knocks down even the hard set targets.
- Many people think a .22 cannot be shot accurately at 300 yards. This is horse feathers we have run 7 or 8 straight a number of times. Plan to learn a little about wind, have a good time, and knock over a few Buffs!
