Rifles.

Match Rifles have the advantage of better sights and a wider choice of caliber's

Were also seeing more and more AR15's modified to "match rifle" class

Each shooter has the option of firing the entire match at 200 yards or of move back to 300 yards for the prone stages.

 
You start in Standing position, at the 200 yard line. Standing is fired "slow fire" loading one shot at a time. You are allowed one minute per shot and are also allowed two additional minutes for two "sighting" shots.

With ammo/magazines on the ground (mat) or shooting stool not to be touched, with bolts remaining open & rifles out of the shoulder, awaiting the command to commence fire. In your firing position with targets up, at the command to commence fire, load with two or five rounds for service rifles or five rounds for match rifles. Fire your two or five rounds, reload (with the remaining eight or five rounds) & complete firing before the cease fire command within the allowed sixty seconds.
