Known Distance event prep
« on: October 11, 2017, 01:46:34 PM »
Anyone know what the approximate ammo usage is for a 1 day KD event? I'm set right now with about 460 rounds on stripper clips but have more loose ammo.
Are you a rifleman, or a cook?

That should be more then plenty!  KD often has less round count than a typical AS.
April 21-22, 2012 - 1st
Oct      6-7, 2012 - 2nd
April 20-21, 2013 - 3rd
Sept     7-8, 2013 - 4th - Rifleman!!

that was kinda my assumption. i think the 2 day AS was around 500 rounds (on the high end). I went to the range yesterday, did some practice AQTs at 25y using my watch as a timer to get as close to official as i could.
