HBSA Shooting Rules and Targets

The HBSA Shooting Rules are the foundation of all HBSA shooting events, but may be modified by any provision published as part of the Entry Form or Course of Fire of a specific event.

NRA/HBSA Round Bull and Tin Hat targets

After long negotiations with the NRA, and a great deal of historical research into the dimensions of targets past, a new series of historic targets has been commissioned for use at Bisley.

Steve Isherwood has drafted some scoresheets to match these new targets, copies of which are attached below for you to download and print at home.

Carol Painting has a series of diagrams available on her website here >>>>
Trevor Steele's scoresheets are available here >>>>

HBSA Pistol and Gallery Rifle targets

The HBSA have produced modern scaled reproductions of the contemporary 1880s Martin Smith 'Sporting Rifle Target' for use in competitions for both rifles and pistols. The original target scored 6 for the 3" bull, but as firearms became more accurate a new smaller 2" central ring was added which scores 7.

The dimensions of the original target were appropriate for revolver shooting at 20 yards, but as more and more UK ranges adopted the international 25 metre format, Jim Hallam for the HBSA created a larger target correctly scaled for 455 revolvers at 25 metres. A further scaled up target was produced for use at 50 metres.

The 20yard and 25metre targets are in stock and available for sale, enquiries to treasurer@hbsa-uk.org
