The order in which the stages are fired is at the discretion of the Match Director. The Match Director may also elect to have the slow-fire stages (1 and 4) fired concurrently and to have the rapid-fire stages (2 and 3) fired concurrently.

If you still need additional information you may contact Mike Moses via email at email@example.com
Any current MSSA member may contact the main office to obtain the Rules for the 200/300 and 600 yard ranges.
Two levels of certification are available: 200/300 yards and 600 yards. A qualification check for 200/300 yards certification is required before attempting to qualify for 600 yard certification. An NRA High Power Rifle classification card will be accepted in lieu of certification at 200/300 and 600 yards. CLUB MEMBERS ONLY - NO VISITORS OR GUESTS.
Safety is just as important as accuracy, if not more so. The Range Qualifying Officer is certifying that the individual is capable and safe to operate on the 200/300 yards and or 600 yards ranges. Any display of unsafe behavior will result in certification being denied at that time, but the individual will be given the opportunity for another chance at a later date.
Match Directors will be available at the end of scheduled matches to certify shooters.
The successful completion of a scheduled match may be accepted as certification, subject to the approval of the Match Director. Consideration will be given to the participant's conduct, safety and ability. Certification will also depend on the type of match conducted.
Before proceeding to the high-power range, all shooters must have an established 100 yard zero on the weapon to be used. The shooter must present this zero, with a minimum accuracy standard of 1 1/2 MOA 5-shot group to a Range Qualifying Officer. Shooters may then begin the certification process at the 200-yard line, demonstrating basic knowledge of ballistics, proper sight adjustment to center shots on the target, and the safe operation of the firearm. The uncertified member must demonstrate the ability to set up his equipment without outside interference or assistance. Certification may be preformed from the position of choice by the shooter. The prone position is recommended if a bench is not used.
B. Open Sights:
Note: A list of Range Qualifying Officers is located in the Main Office along with the 200/300 and 600 Yard Rules and additional qualifying specifications.
