Benchrest Competition

This was originally intended to be a competition vs Oundle, but they failed to provide a team. So we did it as an internal competition, on 28th November. Rules were as follows:

A team competition, with each competitor shooting at 25m, then 50m and then 100m. Bipods, bags or rests can be used for the fore-end of the gun, but the butt of the gun must be in the shoulder, and no butt bags or rear rests can be used. No slings of any description, but shooting gloves and jackets are allowed. Note: these are national comp rules which we are following.

At 25m, shot on the target below (A4, 1 target), no time limit, and one shot in each target making a maximum possible score of 250. Download PDF here.

Below is the target used at 50m (A4 with 2 targets used). No time limit. One shot in each of the 15 scored targets and 2 in each of the remaining 5. Maximum possible score of 250 with 25 shots to be scored. Download the PDF here.

Below is the target used at 100m (A3, with 1 target used). No time limit. Five shots in each of the scoring targets, with a maximum possible score of 250 with 25 shots to be scored. Download PDF here.

These are the results. It was a narrow win for Team A led by Stan. The individual winner was Stan, with Pete in 2nd place and Jimmy and Ian tied for 3rd.
