Re: Match director fees

Match directors, who usually are also the Range Officer, are all NRA certified Range Safety Officers. They get a perk in that the Club pays for their Range Safety Officer recertification fee every two years if they work 16 hours a year.

Re: .22LR ammo poll

I shoot Federal 510 or Federal Auto match in both of my 39As. I consider these both "Premium" not match grade ammo. Both are 1947 rifles. Tried the match grade in both guns but did not have better groups than with these less expensive brands. Read an article, I can post it if anyone wants to read it...
