This Long Distance Appleseed is open only to students who have attended at least one Appleseed event and are at least sixteen (16) years old; students are not required to have scored Rifleman (210) on the AQT in order to attend this event, but a score of 180 or better is highly recommended. If you have not yet attended a KD (Known Distance) event, you may prefer to do that first, but it isn't required. We will be covering the same material as a KD, but instead of shooting full-distance AQTs for a Rifleman patch, we will be shooting on their excellent UKD steel range - the primary emphasis of this event is target identification in the field, ranging, building a range card, and working with a spotter.
NO RIMFIRES AT THIS EVENT! ONLY centerfire rifles capable of firing accurately to 500 yards and beyond, preferably zeroed at 25 yards, are permitted. A semi-automatic rifle with a minimum of two magazines is best, but bring what you have and more importantly, what you consider to be your "go-to" rifle .
Please also make sure you have a sling -- we prefer the GI web slings, which run about $12 at gun shows or online.
To feed your centerfire, bring a minimum of 200 rounds of ammunition of a similar kind, i.e., all 147 grain 30-06 loaded to same specs, or something of that nature.
Schedule: Sat 8:30am-5:00pm, Sun 8:30am-4:00pm (as conditions permit)
