XTC & Service Rifle

Across The Course or XTC as it is normally called, is a marksmanship rifle competition involving Service Rifles such as the M16 or M1 Garand. Shooting is done utilizing a rifle with sling and involves the three positions of standing, sitting/kneeling, and prone. Three distances are shot which are 200, 300, and 600-yards. For those shooters who want to compete with their AR platform rifles this is the match for you!


We invite any new shooters interested in shooting from 200 out to 600 yards with an AR to come out to watch and learn or bring a rifle and shoot!  Our monthly matches are low key and a great way to learn.  We have some of the top shooters in the US shoot our matches every month and we love helping people get started in the shooting sports.

We always welcome and embrace new shooters to competitive shooting sports! Never shot matches before? No worries! We will help you learn and come to enjoy competitive shooting sports.

Check out our Event Calendar at Deadzeroshooting.com every month for scheduled matches.  We look forward to seeing you on the range.
