Benchrest Centerfire Group

Posted on January 9, 2016

Welcome to the Benchrest Centerfire Group discipline page!

There will again be a Center Fire Bench Rest League this year. The sign up sheet is on the bulletin board close to the entrance door to the club house.

The course of fire will consist of 20 shots for record fired on a Sinclair Bench Rest Practice Target, within 30 minutes, at 100 yards. An unlimited number of sighter shots is allowed.

The top row of 5 bullseye targets will be for sighters. The number 2 and 4 bulls in the second row will be for two 5 shot groups to be measured center to center.

The bottom two rows of 5 bullseyes will be for score, 1 shot per target.  If the circular line is completely broken the lower number will be counted.

There will be no weight limits or scope limit.  There is no restriction on caliber except the existing club rules of center fire below 50 caliber.

The 100 yard General Range will be used until the 500 Meter Range is open, then the matches will be on the 500 Meter Range with an extra match at 200 yards for those interested. The 100 yard target will be used for both the 100 yard and 200 yard matches. Hope to see you on May 6, 2017 for the first match.  The matches will be held on Saturdays.

 The dates for the 2017 matches are:

May 6 and 20
June 3 and 17
July 1, 15 and 29
Aug. 5 and 19

Shooting starts at 9:30 am and finishes at about 12:00 pm.  All shooting is on the new range out back. Use Gate C to enter for the Benchrest Centerfire shoots.

Constructive suggestions are welcome. How good is your hunting/varmint /target rifle?  There will be a $4.00 target fee for the complete session.  No awards or medals to be awarded, just bragging rights to be earned weekly.
