Outdoor Bullseye

What is Bullseye? Bullseye is the local target shooting program supporting the “National Matches”. In 1903, President Teddy Roosevelt enacted Title 10 U.S. Code §4312 (National rifle and pistol matches: small-arms firing school). The War Department funded these matches in order to promote improved civilian marksmanship and familiarity with the Service Rifle and Service Pistol firearms of the day. Additionally, the Army instructs the Small Arms Firing School at the National Matches each year. Today, Bullseye continues with the support of both the NRA and the CMP, and local clubs like OSC.

A Bullseye match is also known as a “2700”, and consists of three 900 point matches (i.e., “.22”, “Centerfire”, and “.45”). Special matches such as Distinguished Service Pistol or Distinguished Revolver are optionally available at larger events. Matches typically follow a standard “900” format shown below. For practice, however, some clubs utilize an abbreviated “600” version. Two alternative “600” formats exist. The format used by OSC Bullseye practice consists of two NMCs.

Equipment: OSC restricts projection sights and certain types of ammunition. For full details concerning what to expect when competing in a sanctioned match, refer to both the NRA and CMP rulebooks for a complete discussion of the permitted and restricted equipment, allowable modifications, minimum trigger weights, and much more. Note that the NRA rulebook governs Precision Pistol (formerly known as Bullseye) rules, as well as Distinguished Revolver matches; the CMP rulebook governs Service Pistol and Service Rifle rules, as well as Distinguished Service Pistol (Rifle) matches, the President’s 100 (P100) matches, the National Trophy Individual (NTI) matches, and the National Trophy Team (NTT) matches. All CMP matches are contested using firearms satisfying the Service Pistol or Service Rifle definitions.

Sights: OSC does not permit laser sights or similar sights which project downrange. Such projections may potentially distract your neighboring shooters. OSC permits traditional “iron sights”, scopes, red dots, and similar optics.

Ammunition: OSC does not permit hollow points or wadcutters in the indoor range (in order to reduce wear and tear on the self-healing rubber backstop). For the outdoor range, ammunition is not restricted.
