JC Steel Targets, Inc. is proud to have its 8th annual MDT Steel Challenge presented by JC Steel Targets.
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 AR Platform rifles when shooting from the MDT helicopter- Yes, there will be a helicopter. More details to follow, it’s a once in a lifetime adventure, I recommend to everyone!!
Calibers will be 300 mag and under for rifle.
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.
