I got the long-range shooting bug earlier this year after shooting with extreme long-range guru Jay Monych. With Jay’s excellent instruction and more than a little help from my 20” 6.5 Creedmoor rifle built by Alamo Precison, I was getting consistent hits at 1800 yards.
So naturally when Mile-Shot Jay told me he was working on establishing the new Extreme Long Range Shooting Organization I knew I’d be joining. Here’s their press release:
Texas – Extreme Long Range Shooting Organization (ELRSO) is pleased to announce the launch of a new organization focused on the support and expansion of ELR shooting competitions across the United States. ELRSO will serve as a sanctioning body providing a standardized framework, course of fire and scoring format across all of its events held nationwide.
Additionally, ELRSO will maintain a scoring database tracking all competitors’ points accumulations from each match with the top shooters earning a spot in the finale match to be held at the end of the year.
ELRSO will support two distinct equipment classes to create maximum shooter opportunity for its members. A limited class will be open for all calibers .338 and under, while an Unlimited class will be available for all other calibers up to .50 cal. All competitions will have a minimum starting target distance of 1,000 yards.
ELRSO memberships will be available at $100 annually for adults and $50 annually for youths (under 18). Membership will be required to participate in ELRSO sanctioned events. The inaugural event, the Sicangu Arms 2K, will be held in Winner, SD on May 11, 2019. If you are interested in participating in an event, hosting an event or would like more information, please visit our website at ELRSO.com
This is the ELRSO’s mission:
The Goal of the Extreme Long Range Shooting Organization (ELRSO) is to promote the growth of the ELR sport by creating new ELR opportunities and encouraging shooter participation in a safe, consistent and simple format that utilizes a standardized scoring system across all ELRSO sanctioned events. ELRSO sanctioned events reflect a commitment to continually push the limits of ELR based upon a scoring system that maximizes advancement through participant skill level, and minimizes accomplishments achieved by luck or chance.
