This is a rifle marksmanship event - No Handguns on the firing line.
One of Arizona's oldest ranges, the 7 Mile Hill Range just South of Kingman is Arizona Appleseed's premier range for KD shooting, whether for the KD portion of a standard Appleseed weekend, or a 3-Day Advanced KD Clinic. So if you want to shoot full-distance AQTs with your centerfire rifle, this is the one to attend. Firing lines face North by Northeast, and strong winds provide good wind-doping practice for KD shooting. Come on out and join us for some of the finest Marksmanship instruction available. Additionally, shooters will be immersed in the true history and lore of April 19th, 1775, the day Marksmanship met history and our heritage began…
WHILE SUPPLIES LAST - Do you know someone under 18 who wants to attend but can't find .22 ammo? No problem - thanks to Federal Ammunition's support of youth shooting programs, Federal Automatch .22 is available direct from Federal for $13.00 per 325rnd box. To take advantage of this offer, you must contact azmule through forum PM or email firstname.lastname@example.org at least a week before the shoot, to ensure that the Shoot Boss of your event has enough on hand.
Again - this ammo is for use at an Appleseed by shooters under 18, the supply allotted to Arizona Appleseed is limited and may go fast, so sign up sooner rather than later.

If you sign up, please also email AZ_Varian at email@example.com to ensure that you get any additional pre-shoot information.
This Long Distance Appleseed is open only to students who have attended at least one Appleseed event and are at least sixteen (16) years old; students are not required to have scored Rifleman (210) on the AQT in order to attend this event, but a score of 180 or better is highly recommended.
NO RIMFIRES AT THIS EVENT! ONLY centerfire rifles capable of firing accurately to 500 yards, preferably zeroed at 25 yards, are permitted. We will be running several full-distance AQTs with full sized targets and with the time constraints of the 25 meter AQT. A semi-automatic rifle with a minimum of two (four or more is better) magazines is best, but bring what you have and more importantly, what you consider to be your "go-to" rifle .
Please also make sure you have a sling -- we prefer the GI web slings, which run about $12 at gun shows or online.
To feed your centerfire, bring a minimum of 300 rounds of ammunition of a similar kind, i.e., all 147 grain 30-06 loaded to same specs, or something of that nature.
