EQUIPMENT NEEDS FOR F-CLASS OPEN
The following is a brief list of equipment required to shoot F-Class Open:
A rifle with a caliber and load that is capable of pushing a bullet fast enough so that it remains supersonic (travels faster than 1129 feet per second) at 1000 yards. Typically a muzzle velocity of 2600 to 2750 FPS or more will keep the bullet travelling fast enough for 1000 yard shooting, depending on the type of bullet. If the bullet becomes subsonic at 1000 yards it tends to become unstable , and accuracy drops dramatically.
A good quality scope with variable power. Most of the U.S. Team members are using Nightforce Scopes that are variable from 12 - 42X.
Front rest with three "feet". There are many flavors of front rests out in the marketplace. We have seen some really good shooting done on some really inexpensive rests. As long as you can level the rest well and the forend of your gunstock slides well in the front bag, you should be set.
A rear bag.
A shooting mat to lay on.
Safety shooting glasses.
Good hearing protection.
