I would also like to shoot my AR competitively but dont know much about it. Was thinking of going to the Military Shoot in Marshfield this weekend. I have an AR 15 with iron sights. What kind of distance do they shoot AR's with iron sights? Any info on how it works or how to prepare would be great. I reload my own rounds but other than that not much experience in shooting altogether, thought the competitive thing would help me meet others with the same interest?

Service rifle shoots at 200, 300, and 600 yards with iron sights. The best way to get started is to attend a service rifle clinic.

LOL, 600 yds. I was practicing yesterday at 50 yds. Did well but I dont think I could see the target past 100 yds. Maybe I will go to watch the first time.

Where would I get more info on the Marshfield Shoot? Like how many shots, how mush $$. Website doesn't have much info.

Edit: I looked up the Marshfield shoot and it looks more like a fun shoot not a real match. I'm sure it would be fun but I don't think you'd learn much about service rifle competition there.

Don't be intimidated. Go to a clinic. They are designed for beginners just like you.
