- Please see the link at the left for 2013 Requirements to Access Fort Knox with firearms.
Rules: These are NRA Approved matches but NRA membership is not required. Unless modified by this program, current NRA rules will apply. Open bolt indicators are required (Rule 3.21). All competitors will wear eye and ear protection (Rules 3.19 & 3.20) in the pits. All competitors will wear hearing protection on the firing line where eye protection is also highly encouraged. Competitors will score, work in the target pits, and assist the Range and Pit Officers as required. The use of plug type scoring gauges is restricted to the Pit Officer only.
Sighting Shots: Coaching during sighting shots is allowed to get the shooter on the target. All sighting shots must be recorded on the back of the score card. The shooter must tell the scorer when he is going to shoot for record before firing the first record shot. Once the shooter has fired his first record shot, he can not shoot any more sighting shots. Additional time may not be allowed for record shots if more than 5 sighting shots are fired.
Rifle: Any safe rifle. There will be an Any Rifle category (Rule 3.2) and a Service Rifle category (Rule 3.1, 3.1.1, or 3.1.2). Competitors must shoot the service rifle in both fired matches to be eligible for that aggregate award. The M1C, M1D, M21, and similar scoped service rifle systems are allowed in the any sight matches.
Ammunition: Any safe ammunition (Rule 3.17.B).
Challenges: A $3.00 fee in exact change must accompany any challenge. The fee will be refunded if the challenge is upheld.
Classification: The NRA classification system will be used. A current NRA Long Range or F-Class classification card, temporary score book, or assigned classification is acceptable. If four or more unclassified competitors compete they will be placed in a separate class, otherwise they will shoot as Masters. An unclassified shooter is a competitor that has not shot in a NRA Registered or Approved match within the past three years. Unclassified shooters must be sponsored by a classified shooter.
F-Class Category: F-Class Prone (Rule 5.6.1) is fired from the prone position and the rifle may be supported with a rear and/or front rest (Rule 5.3, 3.2).
Squadding: All matches will be squadded at the registration table which opens at 7:30 am EDT. Advanced entries will be honored until 8:00 am.
Match Schedule: Firing will commence at 8:30 am.

Awards: Cash will be awarded for match and class winners in each match. If there are less than four competitors in a class, they will be grouped up into the next higher class. If there are eight or more competitors in a class, then a second place award will be given. Junior competitors must pay the adult entry fee to be eligible for awards. Competitors must shoot the service rifle in both fired matches to be eligible for the service rifle aggregate award. F-Class awards will follow the same schedule as the Long Range awards.
General: Bring your own food and water; there will be no lunch break. Competitors are encouraged to car pool and park as many vehicles as possible in the 1000 yard line parking area. If personal vehicles interfere with running the match smoothly, we will require all vehicles to be left at the 1000 yard line.
Motels: There are several inexpensive motels near the range, including:
Best Western Gold Vault Inn, 1225 N Dixie Hwy, Radcliff (270) 351-1141.
Golden Manor Motel, 346 Dixie Hwy, Muldraugh (270) 942-2800.
Directions: All shooters must enter the post through Chaffee Gate. After clearing the gate, drive down Bullion to Eisenhower and turn right and go under the railroad tracks to the traffic light and turn left onto Brandenburg Road. Continue down Brandenburg Road to Frazier Road (just after the railroad tracks), turn right onto Frazier Road and go to the four way stop at Wilson Road, go straight through the intersection and travel down Main Range Road past French Range. Continue down Main Range Road and go down an extremely steep hill. At the base of the hill turn left onto Porter River Road, follow Porter River Road across the bridge to the first gate on the right, turn right and go up the steep hill on the gravel road.
CAUTION: These matches are held on a U.S. military installation and all personnel will be subject to all applicable federal laws and military regulations when traveling on post. Concealed Carry Permits are not valid on federal installations and carrying concealed weapons of any kind on Ft. Knox is against federal law and military regulations. Competitors should arrive at Fort Knox early to process through the gate and arrive at the match promptly. Bring only the firearms you plan to shoot and keep them unloaded and secured in an appropriate storage container. Ammunition will also be stored in appropriate containers and kept separate from firearms.
