DarkHorse Ranch is proud to present the first annual DarkHorse Ranch Precision Rifle Shoot to be held at the Dark Horse Training Center (DHTC) in Northern New Mexico, a long-range shooter's paradise. A portion of the proceeds raised from this event will be donated to a Marine Raiders non profit foundation to support their mission of caring for our brothers and sisters well after the fighting is over. The Darkhorse Ranch Precision Rifle Shoot will consist of a one-day precision rifle match. In association with Asymmetric Solutions and Talons Reach Foundation, this event aims to bring shooters from around the United States to neutral ground for a memorable long-range shooting experience. This event is for those that enjoy long-range precision shooting and want to test their skills against PRS, NRL, Military & Law Enforcement shooters. It does not matter if you are a Hunter, a recreational shooter, or are new to the long-range community. This event is geared toward you and is guaranteed to take your skills to the next level.
The DarkHorse Ranch Precision Rifle Shoot will be a high-tempo course of fire with minimal “downtime” between stages. Shooters can expect 8-12 stages with targets ranging anywhere from 300m-1200m. Targets will consist of steel. The target size will also vary based on the course of fire and the time allotted. Shooters can expect stages that present challenges ranging from timed events, shooting from barricades, natural terrain features, where shooters will be required to change positions multiple times. All scores will be verified in a balanced and fair manner. The competition requires 100-120 rounds for the entire course of fire regardless of the division. However, calibers to the tactical division will be restricted to the following calibers: 5.56, .308 and .300 WinMag. There will NOT be time to leave the DHTC during the event. Local services are 15-30 minutes away, so please bring everything you need. If you are not sure, do not hesitate to reach out for suggestions. Lunch and refreshments will not be provided, we highly recommend that shooters bring an individual water source they can refill. Refreshments include water, Gatorade, snacks and will be available throughout the day. Be advised, even during the late summer months in Northern NM, it can be hot. We suggest that shooters start their hydration process 24 hours in advance of the event date.
