No power limit, but no "bullets" or "slugs" allowed, and .22 cal max.   Though i have tried lots of different gun and power ranges, from 10.3gr .177 pellets going 890fps down to 31gr .22 cal Korean pellets going 1000fps,  I'm leaning toward either the 10.3 .177s, or the 15.9 .22's, wither going around 890fps.   I find either can go into groups around and inch high and 2" wide or less at 114yds with a very slight breeze.  The targets are around 4.5" dia. so with good wind doping, these combo's will be competitive.

I kindof plan to use my $229 all-in .22 cal gauntlet with an old 16X scope, but I do have several guns that are good candidates.

I don't feel a high mg scope is desirable, since it makes locating the targets harder, plus the backing I'm using makes it near impossible to spot misses anyhow.

I will likely compete, but not for the prizes, just for the challenge itself.
