    Rimfire F Class at the Stl BR Club

    Darn if I didnít get some good news today. The St Louis Bench Rest Club sent out their match schedule for 2017 late last week and unless my eyes fooled me, I see that we added a rimfire version to our Thursday F Class competition. For me this is real exciting because I want to sample as many venues as I can at the STL BR club and this fits in well with a rifle Iím building for the Vintage Rimfire benchrest matches that are held on Saturday nights.

    As it was I had spent the last half of 2016 working on a stock Remington .223 to be legal and competitive for F class. The last step in that was to put a 1 in 8/9 twist barrel on it and work up a load. As of now, everything is complete on the rig except for the barrel. The bases for that is a Remington 700VS from about 1998 or so. Iíll finish this project but the rimfire addition to the Thursday matches could be a lot of fun.

    With the F class rimfire I think I can slide in with the CZ 452 that Jerry Kloeppel bedded for me last fall and I would be about ready to go.

    To be clear I havenít talked to anyone from the club yet but from the schedule my guess is that it looks like the rimfire will shoot alongside the standard Thursday F class but at a shorter distance. How cool is that. If you need any more information go to http://www.shootingstl.com/.

    I wonder how far rimfire XC is behind the F class rimfire class??

    A big thanks to Scott Pieper and the match director who I believe is Mark Berblinger. Thanks, Bill Cook

    I read this thread with interest. I'm too far from there to shoot the matches but have a question. Are all CZ 452s repeaters? I ask because when I checked into
    F class I was told that the matches are considered slow fire and must be shot loading one round at a time. Are there single shot adapters available for the CZ 452s or can they be loaded easily with the magazine in place? Thanks, Wayne

    You can get a single shot adapter mag from CZ. I bought one after I got my first 452.

    MRL,

    I asked the same question over on Accurate Shooter and was told it
    would be 100 yards using 200 yard targets.

    The top of page 67 gives the NRA targets that are approved. Wayne
