Event description

Description

A Project Mapleseed event is designed to provide structured and safe rifle fundamentals to hunters and shooters of all ages and provides a solid framework of basic rifleman skills that benefits new and experienced shooters alike. For the new shooter, we can teach you to use your rifle safely and also be able to hit your target. For the seasoned shooter, we can teach you to shoot more accurately - even out to 500 yards.

The emphasis on teaching traditional rifle marksmanship within Project Mapleseed centres around traditional rifle marksmanship techniques using a rifle sling coupled with a concept termed "natural point of aim" (NPOA). Project Mapleseed uses reduced size scaled silhouette targets that enable a shooter to assess their effective range with their rifle using a reduced length shooting range only 25 meters (82 feet) long while simulating firing at full-size targets at ranges up to 400 yards.

The ultimate goal of a "Mapleseed" is to teach students to maintain 4 minutes of angle (MOA) precision and accuracy, This translates into being able to put all shots into a 20 inch at 500 yards. Qualification targets are shot to evaluate progress and for a score. The goal is to score 210 points or better on a 40-shot course that has 250 possible points. This earns the coveted Rifleman’s Patch.

Project Mapleseed Members and CCFR Members are entitled to $5 discounts off of your registration fee. The discount is issued during the signing up for an event process. Proof of membership is required on the day of the event at registration. Failure to prove proof of membership will result in forfeiture of the discount and your being required to pay the $5 fee.



FAQs

What rifle and sights can I use?

Mapleseed participants are free to use whatever rifle they have or can borrow. The most common rifle is a magazine-fed, semi-automatic .22 rimfire with a scope. This provides new shooters with a low-cost, low-recoil training platform that allows them to focus on fundaments. Magazine-fed rifles are usually recommended as there are mandatory mag changes during the qualification course of fire and is less complicated for new shooters. The action is typically less important than the magazine type and capacity.

Sighting mechanism is also up to the shooter. You are free to use whatever you prefer. We will cover sight alignment using all of the typical types.

Bottom line? Bring the rifle you have, the shooting fundamentals taught focus on the shooter, not the rifle. The goal is to learn and have fun.

This event is a Centerfire and Rimfire event
