But, it's their matches and their rules.
I would not expect the rules committee to change any rules like this out of the blue.
The rules are managed by a committee, and must evolve; that's how they work.
If you think this should be added, then you should take that initiative and get it added. The applicable rule book includes directions for requesting a change, so do that.

If no one requests a change, why would anyone expect such a change?
When the rules were made, consider that not only is it possible no one on the rules committee was aware of such rifles, but as they were recently imported in numbers there simply has never been an occasion for someone to ask?

Mosin Nagant snipers are in the rules, and not too difficult to obtain. 20 years ago they were unobtainable in the US. If they rolled out the VS match then I suspect the M91/30 sniper would not have been included as no one would conceivably have one to shoot.

Every sport, with rules, operates just like this.

Random

Not every 308 M1 is a tricked out Match rifle.

CMP sold a bunch of M1 specials in 308, I have a 7.62 Navy M1 that is not a "match" rifle and another M1 in 308 that is not a "match" rifle.

I also have a 308 Navy Trophy rifle if I needed to shoot across the course with an M1 (not likely!!).

I say the odds are better than 50/50 that a 308 M1D is allowed in Vintage Sniper CMP matches within two years, only because its the M1 and GCA getting behind it.

And your sniper pictures at Quantico are the GOAT!

All the best.

John

Very cool. thanks,

So at 26 pages for $400, that's $15.38 a page, or one very expensive book.

What tis the size of the book? Length by width?
