Come out and join us for our 1st Annual Marias River Steel Match! This will be an 8 stage match in some of the most beautiful country North Central Montana has to offer. April up here can vary greatly in terms of weather, so please plan accordingly for rain, snow, or sunshine. Maximum round count for this match will be 64 with targets from 200-1,000 yards. If you plan to utilize the 100 yard zero range make sure to bring a few extra.

There are no divisions or classes. 

All rifles used to compete in the SIG SAUER HUNTER GAMES series shall weigh in at 16lbs or less with all dedicated support equipment attached. Rifle consists of barrel, muzzle devices, trigger, action, stock/chassis, scope, and bipod (if used). A sling is no longer included in the weight, since it is used for safely carrying a rifle, and we want to encourage safe moving between stages.

Rifle mounted electronics: Due to the surge of consumer video equipment availability, passive rifle mounted electronics used for video recording which are mounted on a rifle system will not be included in the weight of the rifle. Assistive electronic devices such as E-data cards, hard mounted range finders, or timers, etc which aid the user during the stage time, will be included in the overall rifle weight.

At the start of the stage, the rifle should not have a magazine loaded (this is a safety consideration to prevent loaded firearms outside the shooting area).

There is no minimum power factor requirement, as seen in the two-day NRL Hunter Series. 

There are no minimum caliber requirements, however calibers may not exceed a 30 cal and must have a Muzzle Velocity maximum of 3275 fps.
