    ELR Central is proud to announce an event to set the Record straight in ELR Shooting.

    When: Sunday January 21st 2018
    Where: Front Sight Range, Pahrump, NV.
    Who: Anyone that wants to attend. (Open to the public, free to spectate).

    Rules: http://www.appliedballisticsllc.com/Downloads/ELR CENTRAL WORLD RECORD EVENT.pdf

    Event Site: https://www.facebook.com/events/375733599551673/

    This is pretty simple. Shooter gets 3 minutes to make 3 for 3 on a target distance they select. No sighters. No practice. No excuses. Officiated by an independent 3rd party. Recorded. Open to the public and spectators. We will finally have a real World Record.

    Is there an ELR sanctioning body?

    Currently ELR Central will be hosting/holding this. With help from the community we have been able to bring in an unbias 3rd party to officiate. Someone with a lot of experience running these kinds of events from the 50 Cal Shooters Association.

    They need a sanctioning body. A set of rules that everyone in the world follows and shoots that are sanctioned by that body. Then they can have records. I would assume that this is coming as ELR gets more popular.

    Very interesting venue !.!.!

    But agree with Alex, need to have a sanctioning body.
    Don't know how you can have official "World Records" without one.

    Good Luck..... look forward to seeing more about it.

    I am interested in ELR. Anything long range is cool. A sanctioning body will make it legit and really grow ELR as a sport IMO. I am sure there will be things learned from it that will better 600/1000 yard shooting as well.

    This is the description I read for ELR Central:


    ELR Central is an informational resource, hosted by Applied Ballistics.
    Mission statement:
    “Our mission is to advance the state of the art in Extreme Long Range rifle shooting by: sharing knowledge, promoting awareness, and encouraging best practices within the ELR community.”



    Nothing about being a sanctioning, nor set of unified rules, event procedures, scoring or records criteria.
    Regardless and again, good luck with your event !.!

    Read the rules more in-depth today on the ELR Central event flyer and have to say: sure hope those rules are not what becomes a standard or promoted as a standard. For as written on that flyer, they discriminate pretty bad against many of the existing LR shooting disciplines equipment and rifles.

    I read the rules and have 2 questions:

    WTF is a "heavy rail gun"?

    And how do you get an accurate group size measure on a painted steel plate?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    http://www.appliedballisticsllc.com/Downloads/ELR CENTRAL WORLD RECORD EVENT.pdf

    1. The World Record will be 3 out of 3 direct impacts on a 36-inch square plate
    with no practice shots or sighters.
    2. One rifle per shooter for both attempts. Two shooters cannot share one rifle.
    3. Shooters will not shoot their rifles within 4 hours of this ELR World Record
    attempt; except for a 100-yard confirm zero.
    4. No limit on caliber, cartridge or bullet. No restriction on optics or aiming
    devices.
    5. Rifle weight limit of 50 pounds including anything attached to the rifle (optics,
    bipod, sling, etc.) No heavy Rail Guns or bolted down shooting systems.
    6. Shooters may have one spotter, and the shooter and spotter must stay as a
    team. Spotters can work with only one shooter for the day.
    7. Shooters are permitted to shoot and spot only once in a 4 hour period. A
    shooter from the first relay can spot for his spotter in the second relay so that
    both can shoot. Shooter and spotter cannot shoot in the same relay.
    8. There must be a minimum of 4 hours before shooters can attempt another World
    Record. For example, once in the morning, once in the afternoon.
    9. No more than two (2) World Record attempts in one day.
    10. The target will be 36 inches square. If there are hits on the target and
    there is a way to mark them on the monitor, it will be at the discretion of the
    Match Director to decide when the target should be re-painted.

    Yea, kind of eliminating the f open and benchrest rifles that use, or at least shoot their best with rests. Seems kind of like a good marketing scam though lol. Invent a sport to create a demand for something you sell.... Hell, it's pretty smart actually!

    None the less, I'll give this far more credit than some of the crap on you tube. Some of those guys finally connect after xyz rounds, and jump up and make out with their spotter they're so exited LOL.

    without rangefinders, smart phones, and distance is not known, then shoot those 3 shots, using your spotter

    The rules say bipod or Tripod allowed so that means a SEB mini would work!

    I don't see any of those restrictions in the rules. Do you?

    And since the target is of known dimension, a variable power scope with a marked reticle can do the ranging even if conventional rangefinders can't be used.

    What a joke.

    Determining distance of 1.5, 2, and longer miles with milrad scope is more theory than practice. I don't see how they can eliminate range finders and not give you the distance. Hope that is not true.

    There are too many sanctioning bodies now. Sanctioning bodies are a business. A money making business. A sanctioning body isn't required for someone to set a "world record".

    It's time to get back to the enjoyment and experience of competing, and ELR Central is doing their part.
