    2024 Nevada Cast Bullet Shoot!!

    2024 Nevada Cast Bullet Shoot
    Ladies and Gentlemen, friends and acquaintances! The 24th Nevada Cast Bullet Shoot is scheduled for June 14th, 15th, and 16th at the Humboldt County Shooting Park just north of Winnemucca.
    Please consider this post the invitation for past and new participants to come spend quality time with a group of great folks and do a bunch of shooting!
    If you have always wanted to go, but allowed stuff to get in your way - now is the time to join us. Don't put it off any longer! Life is too short not to enjoy!!

    Although the event is more about friendship and camaraderie, we do have some friendly competition too!!
    Competition targets shot during the event fall into two categories, group and score:
    Group targets test the caster/ reloader and any shooting position is allowed so long as no rest such as a bipod is attached to the firearm.
    Score targets test shooting skills and are shot from an unsupported (no sling) offhand position.

    Open competition events include:
    100 yard score—5 shots any sight
    100 yard group—5 shots any sight
    50 yard score—5 shots iron sights
    50 yard group—5 shots iron sights
    25 yard pistol score—5 shots iron sight, 10 inch max barrel length
    25 yard pistol group—5 shots iron sight, 10 inch max barrel length
    25 yard companion gun score—5 shots each iron sight rifle and pistol offhand shooting same ammo
    Long range—5 shots iron sight/any non-prone field position on 400 yard plate
    Practical rifle—10 shots iron sight offhand in 3 minutes shooting at multiple plates between 100 and 200 yards

    Each shooter can make only one official entry per event with a particular gun, but multiple entries are allowed by using other firearms.
    Sharing use of guns is the key here to see if another shooter can do better with your gun!

    There are also two ladies only events:
    100 yard score—5 shots any sight any position
    50 yard group—5 shots any sight any position

    We also have at least one group/team shoot. Last year we did a stake shoot, with two teams using handguns, trying to see which team can be the first to cut their stake in half! Very Fun!

    There will be a kickoff lunch at the Griddle at 1:00 on Friday, and a "Rools committee" dinner on Friday night (all are invited and the location to be announced).
    Saturday we will start shooting at 8:00 AM, and hold a potluck dinner that evening at the range clubhouse.
    Sunday we will shoot until mid afternoon, tear down the range targets and head back to our rooms and campers to clean up for a final group dinner at a local restaurant.
    Each participant is requested to bring two prizes to this dinner to be awarded by random drawing.
    Typical prizes include surplus bullet molds or reloading gear/supplies. There may also be additional vendor-supplied prizes.

    Looking forward to seeing our old friends and making new ones!

    If you need help with making lodging arrangements or have questions about anything that we might do to help you come join us, please don't hesitate to ask!!
    We were all first timers at one time, too!

    If you are interested, many pictures of previous events are posted to give you a feel for what happens. The 2020 shoot even included a group trip through a ghost town and into the high Santa Rosa Mtns the days before the event. Good food, good people, good times!

    Do you have an internet link about the shoot, or to photos from previous events? I love going sage rat shooting around Winnemucca, but that's usually a month or so before the cast bullet shoot. Maybe I should take two trips over there this year.

    The shoot is probably more than a month late for sage rats. As for more info and pictures, just scroll down through this get-together/competitions subject and you will see NCBS threads for many years.
