JC Steel Targets, Inc. is proud to have its 7th annual JC Steel Target Challenge presented by Caracal USA!
The match will be a pretty up-tempo match with lots of shooting, and will be both physically and mentally demanding. Premium AR500 targets will be the target of choice. Most stages will have some sort of stress involved, either timed or varying target sizes. There will be many different barricades and natural terrain to navigate though while shooting the match as well. Come prepared! We strive to have minimal down time.
Shooters can expect ranges of 1 yard to 1400 yards. Many targets will be in the 200-800 range. We will be utilizing Caracal rifles when shooting from the Caracal helicopter- Yes, there will be a helicopter. More details to follow, it’s a once in a lifetime adventure, I recommend to everyone!!
Also we will be shooting a very cool stage on Friday. It will be run from 12PM to 6PM on Friday.It will be shot in last name Alphabetical order. We are calling it “Running the Ridge”! We are very excited about this stage. It will be a long stage, with 14 different unique challenges. I do not want to give too much away and what we are planning, but its something awesome that has not been seen before!

Calibers will be 300 mag and under for rifle.
Pistols. (All pistols will be provided by CaracalUSA)
Round count will be +-220 rifle.
Muzzle velocity at 3200 FPS or under. We will check randomly!

You can shoot either your bolt rifle, or your semi-auto. Only allowed to carry one rifle during the match and you will only be able to use the same rifle unless there’s complete weapon failure.

You will be required to carry all your gear with you all day and there will be some hiking so pack accordingly.

Registration fee includes Food, refreshments all weekend, shooters bags, and match T shirt.
Food includes lunch on Saturday (on the go). Snacks on Sunday for lunch (granola, jerky etc). Sunday banquet dinner.

Water will be provided at all stages.

Chamber Flags are required during the match and all range activities. No exceptions. Ear and Eye protection recommended.

You can bring a tent if you would like-BUT it is the Northwest and it might be mild weather. So take your chances there. Last year we had many campers.
Campers and RV’s are fine as well. We had lots of these last year from super-duper 5th wheels to pop out tent trailers—we do not have hook ups, so it will be dry RV-ing only. After you get here on the ranch we can provide needed transportation to and from the shooting areas.

We hope to see you here!!!
