Practical Rifle & Civilian Service Rifle

Practical Rifle is challenging and great fun.  It’s target shooting from 100 to 600 yards and occasionally out to 1000 yards, with additional physical pressures on the competitor.

Any centrefire bolt-action rifle may be used, preferably with a ten-round magazine.  There are classes for modern rifles such as AR15 and Remington 700 and also for classic military rifles like the SMLE and Enfield No4.  Targets vary in shape and size and are engaged from a variety of shooting positions, such as standing, squatting, kneeling, sitting and prone. Courses of fire are extremely flexible, the only over-riding constraint being safety.  Its origins can be traced back to the precepts of the NRA as the volunteer movement.  Publications run as early as 1902 Practical Musketry in the UK.
