New Member to the BWRS group and have a few questions. A little background on me so yaíll donít think Iím too much of a newb. Shot for many years in the CMP Nationals. Everything 30 carbine, 1903-A3, Springfield Garand, Springfield M1A, and Match ARís. Indiana Legislators opened up rifle cartridges in rifles for deer hunting two years ago and I already had a 308 Savage in a HS Precision stock Iíd been playing with in an attempt at self-taught long range precision shooting. So the progression from deer hunting at range and long range shooting has begun. Just put together a 6.5 CM, Vortex Viper 4-16x44 mil/mil, Jet Blast muzzle brake and currently load developing.
Questions:
1.   Avg. BWRS match target sizes and yardages? (for my practice)
2.   Examples of typical BWRS stages.
3.   How many shooter slots at a BWRS match and does it vary at different range locations.
4.   Due to travel distances to various matches and schedule, I obviously wonít be able to make all matches.  As per BWRS, slots at shoots can be given away or sold. How does that work? As a BWRS member do I pay for all matches then give away or sell the matches I cannot make?
5.   Are there any BWRS members in NW Indiana? Members that wouldnít mind getting their brain picked with more questions as Iím expecting Iíll have.
If you hear the shot....no  worries.....You obviously weren't the target.

Target sized vary from 1-3ish moa depending on the stage setup.

Number of slots varies per range, some can accommodate more shooters than others.

You register for matches you want to attend. Registration usually opens 6-8 weeks before a match. Just register & pay for the ones you want to attend.  If for some reason something changes after you've registered, sell your slot on here. Last year there were some requirements about only selling to other bwrs members, but I'm not sure if they will continue that this year.

Jeff Thanks for your response..... I've got a better insight to matches after reading all the AAR post. Yours are very informative. I understand there's probably not alot of activity on this forum and the FB pages. I'm still pending the BWRS  paid member Page but my payment has been accepted. I know it's kind of the off season so hopefully I'll get a confirmation soon.   Heading to Southern IN. this weekend. Hope to look up Southern Indiana Precision thats not far from my cabin. They're hosting a couple BWRS matches next year. Sorry for rambling....I'm just way too excited......It's gonna be a long winter waiting for the first match.

Isaac is a good guy. Have one rifle built by him already, and having another one done right now.

Yeah, this forum isn't super high-volume, especially in the off-season, but the guys that are here are generally quite knowledgeable and always happy to help. Plus, it's steadily growing. You'll enjoy bwrs.

Looking forward to seeing you out there!
