Benchrest Shooting

This is a specialised ‘accuracy’ discipline but there is a class for ‘out of the box’ factory rifles.

Custom benchrest rifles are the most accurate rifles around and they are shot from a solid concrete bench off front and rear rests.  Three distances are contested – 100, 600 and 1000 yards.  The object is to shoot a small ‘group’ rather than hit the bullseye - accuracy rather than marksmanship is the object.  For once you can shoot under cover, sat comfortably at the bench – very civilised.  If it all sounds too easy, come and try it.
