Mid-Range Match Filling, More Long Range and Surplus Ammo Available at CMP’s 2024 Eastern Games

BUTNER, N.C. – Competitors, start planning! Only a few open spots remain for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) Mid-Range 3×600 event at the 2024 Eastern CMP Games, CMP Pistol and CMP Cup Matches! Additionally, those who attend the Eastern Games will also have two days of Long Range competition and the chance to purchase surplus .30-06, .30 Carbine and .22LR ammo – offered onsite.

Eastern Games is set to be held April 26 through May 5 at the Camp Butner Training Facility in North Carolina and features a lineup of rifle and pistol competitions for enthusiasts to enjoy. The recreation-oriented event, part of CMP’s Travel Games series, also includes educational opportunities open to adults and juniors of every skill level.

The Mid-Range and Long Range events at Eastern Games are open to Match (Any and Iron Sights), Service, Palma, AR Tactical, F-Open and F T/R classes.

The Mid-Range 3×600 made its debut at Eastern Games in 2023 and has returned with great popularity. Most of the open spots available within the event have been reserved, and once they are filled, individuals who sign up for the match will be placed onto a wait list for access to the match – so, if interested, sign up now!

Likewise, the 1,000-yard Long Range Match added to the Eastern Games schedule for the first time in 2024 will feature two days of competition – each fired completely on CMP’s line of outdoor electronic targets!

CMP’s Long Range matches, open to all experience levels, are fired from 1,000 yards.

And, as a bonus element to Eastern Games, the CMP Sales Department has announced surplus ammo will be in tow and available to competitors during the event.

About Eastern CMP Games:

The Eastern Games boasts an assortment of CMP’s own modern and vintage military rifle competitions, like the Springfield, Rimfire Sporter, Carbine and John C. Garand Matches. Like other Travel Games events, those competing in the John C. Garand Match with As-Issued M1 Rifles will have the chance to earn a GCA (Garand Collectors Association) Master Marksman medal – based on performance at designated events.

Eastern Games also presents CMP’s growing field of pistol opportunities, like Centerfire, .45 and .22 Pistol 900 Aggregates and a Service Revolver EIC Match, as well as CMP Cup Rifle Matches, comprised of 4-Man Team, 80 Shot and EIC Rifle competitions. The CMP Cup Matches are ideal for those in search of a Distinguished Rifleman Badge or those looking to compete against some of the best shots in the country – though everyone is welcome to participate.
