Pre-registration is required. We are moving to electronic targets and we need to know how many competitors we will have to set up targets ahead of the match.
Remember, we are GUESTS of the NC National Guard and they are willing to let NSSC run matches.
17 Oct 2022 - IMPORTANT CHANGES TO LONG-RANGE SCHEDULE!
Due to the new construction occurring behind the 1000 yard parking lot until September 2023, the 1000yd line will be off limits for shooting or parking. Please DO NOT park back at the 1000 yard parking lot or along the road for any reason.
We are limited to shooting from 100 to 600 yards.
Entrance to Range 4 will no longer be from the 1000 yard line but will now be the entry gate at the 800 yard line.
Drive straight pass the water tower and pavilion on the left. Pass the latrines and large parking area on the right. This enters the range through the gate at the 800 yard line. Park behind the firing line that you are shooting and DO NOT park on the grass.
This will not impact our Mid-Range or XTC matches that are planned. For the rest of this year, the club will be converting our remaining Long-Range matches in the schedule to 600 yard matches. We apologize for the disruption to anyone's plans, and we share your disappointment. The NSSC Board of Directors are currently working to change our 2023 schedule to accommodate this change, so stay tuned for further announcements.
NSSC Is Moving To E-Targets!!!
The club has purchased new ShotMarker© target systems, and will be utilizing them beginning in late 2022. Shooters are Strongly Encouraged to have a good zero on your rifle when you arrive at the match. Our Friday practices the day before each match are the perfect opportunity to get your rifle zeroed at the yardage on a paper target!
Make Certain You Bring A Tablet, iPad or Smartphone With You To Camp Butner!!!
Here is the ShotMarker Manual
