Now, I am by no means accustomed to firing at 500+ yard ranges. In fact, the longest range I've ever shot at has been 200 meters. Be that as it may, upon inquiring into a new club I was shocked to learn that they only allow one round in the rifle at a time while firing at the 500+ yard range. Is this normal? It seems counter productive to me to get some good battle rifle practice in if you must manually load the roads one at a time. What is the point of having a high capacity semi-auto repeater? Anyway, I e-mail my inquiry to one of the staff and got the following response. I'd like to get everyone's take on it.
...absolutely no one loads more than one round at a time
at 500 and 600 yards....except for practicing for or
competing in a competition called "infantry team
trophy" or "rattle battle". this is only done with a
range officer present. there are coaches, brass
pickers, team captains and a lot of strategy and
in normal cmp/nra matches at 600 yards the course of
fire is 2 sighting shots and 20 rounds for record in
22 minutes. nobody loads more than 1 round at a time
nor would want to. this is much too involved to get
into now, so come out to the range this spring and
begin to learn to become a rifleman.
