HBSA Miniature Rifle competition, 11th & 12th August 2018

posted 18 Jul 2018, 11:08 by Tony Cattermole
Following 2014’s successful relaunch of the Historic Miniature Rifle event we have clarified and expanded the classes. The idea of this event is to provide a competition for earlier single shot, repeating (slide, bolt or lever actions) and modern Gallery rifles, both Target and sporting, competing in the “Spirit of the Original”. We are able to use once more the historic 25 yard Winans range complex at Bisley (now completely rebuilt) restricted to lower-powered rifles (up to 2000 fps and1200 ft.lbs energy).

This is ideal for standing (offhand) shooting, and prone shooters will also be very welcome. In addition we also offer the option of the ‘Standing Supported’ matches, to be run in parallel with the standing matches. All NSRA August competitors will be particularly welcome.

All competitors shall be members of an NRA or NSRA-affiliated club. Any rifle classification issues will be decided by the Match Director on the day. Please bring your Firearms Certificate and Shooters Certification Card (SCC). If you do not yet have an SCC you may shoot under "one to one" supervision subject to availability of SCC holders to do so.

DISTANCE: 25 yards only
