This is the 5th annual South Dakota Steel Classic.  The match is located in beautiful central South Dakota near Orient SD.


The Match will include 12 stages per day and shooters will shoot appx 240 rounds of ammunition.


This is a traditional field style match with a few new school quirks.  You will want to be prepared to shoot in challenging conditions, weather and wind being some of them.  The vast majority of the match is based in hunting or military scenarios.  You are going to want to have good dope for your rifle as you will engage targets out to 1250 yards.  In varying wind conditions.

We will accept up to 120 shooters

Shooters will get a commemorative t-shirt and ear tag for your pack.  Please let us know what size shirt you need.  Shirts are a 50/50 cotton polyester that fit appropriately so sizes will match what you normally wear not an athletic fit.
