Target Rifle Meeting

To be held at Bisley on Sunday 29th July 2018

Range & Admin

Range briefing – 08:15 (no briefing, no shoot – later comers will be briefed as when convenient for the RO).

A.M. - 2 lanes on Century at 300x with markers 

P.M. - 2 lanes on Century at 500x with markers 

To ensure that we get through the day as planned, I will need for each competitor to arrive well prepared.  For example, score cards correctly completed, ensuring that you have pens & pencils to write scores, a telescope or binoculars to score for your partner.

Ammunition & Equipment

HPS Match .303 ammo will be supplied at 50p per round for the competition (2+10) only.  (Not for sale other than for use in the competition).  Purchasers may keep the cases – HXP once fired. 

The club has no other ammunition for sale e.g. 7.62mm, those members using another calibres will need to bring their own ammunition.

A number of club SR(b) rifles will be available on the day for those who may wish to use them.

Match format

The format will be as per standard TR competition; 2 convertible sighters and 10 to count from the prone position.  Shooting jackets, single point slings and gloves are permitted for SMLEs, No 4s and L39s etc fitted with target iron sights i.e. standard SR(b) configuration (e.g. A J Parker).   

SR(a) rifles are acceptable.  This class is ‘as issued’, two-point sling and non-padded glove permitted.

Course of fire

1.      Three firers to each lane per detail firing alternately, marking each other’s’ cards and acting as Register Keeper for each other. 

2.      Maximum 45 seconds allowed per shot or penalties for slow shooting will be incurred. 

3.      Each detail should take no longer than 40 mins to complete followed by a 5-minute changeover. 

4.      This should allow for 5 details each in the morning and afternoon, i.e. 15 shooters per lane or 30 shooters in total for both lanes. 

5.      Assuming 30 shooters, there will may be the opportunity for people to have a go with more than one rifle, or a second go with the same rifle.  (If the latter, it will be the first shoot that counts towards the competition).
