American Defense MFG Rifle Series
American Defense MFG is back for 2019 as the title sponsor for our Rifle Series! The rifle series will consist of a minimum of 4 matches for this season:
Matches will consist of 4-5 Stages. Round count should be around 125-150 rounds but we always suggest that you bring more.
Since DSS is part of the USSL, we will utilize the United Rifle League rules and scoring for these matches. We have been provided an advanced copy of the rules and for the most part they align with the UML rules and what we have used in the past. Here are the divisions we will recognize at our matches:
Open – (same as UML) No limitations on accessories and rifle supporting devices may be added/removed at any time. “Traditional” rifles only with 5.45x39 caliber or higher.
Limited – (same as UML) Rifles may be equipped with no more than (1) non-magnified optical sight, no rifle supporting devices.
Tac Ops – (same as UML) Rifles may be equipped with no more than (1) magnified optical sight, no rifle supporting devices.
Heavy – (same as UML) Rifles may be equipped with no more than (1) magnified optical sight, no rifle supporting devices (minimum 7.62X51mm NATO).
PCC – No limitations on accessories for the carbine and supporting devices may be added/removed at any time.
Rimfire – Tac Ops rules with these exceptions: 22lr minimum caliber, targets not required to fall but should indicate audibly, targets that require activation from falling steel shall be activated prior to start of stage.
The scoring for our Rifle Series will be based on the UML’s time-plus-point method. At the end of the season, we will tally up the points for each shooter for all the series matches he/she has participated in. The shooter with the highest amount of points will be declared the winner.
American Defense MFG has provided us with one of their UIC Mod2 Carbines. We will have the rifle available for anyone to use at these matches. Just bring some 55gr .223 Rem or 5.56mm ammo and you will be ready to play.
We will also be setting aside a portion of every match fee to build a cash prize pool for the top finishers; 3$ dollars for each match fee collected (comped match fees will not accumulate in the total prize pool). For every $50 that is set aside for a division, DSS will pay out 1 place. Here is what the cash prizes (per division) will look like:
$50 collected in a division: 1st - $50
$100 collected in a division: 1st - $65, 2nd - $35
$150 collected in a division: 1st - $80, 2nd - $45, 3rd - $25
$200 collected in a division: 1st - $95, 2nd - $55, 3rd - $30, 4th - $20
$250 collected in a division: 1st - $110, 2nd - $65, 3rd - $35, 4th - $25, 5th - $15
