Comp – Benchrest @ 100yrds: Sunday 8th March.

Stan made a fab trophy for us, custom CNC'd out of walnut:

New club Benchrest trophy

Scoring:

Front bag, rest or bipod only, no support to the rear of the gun. 10 shots to zero, then 10 shots in each of the four targets. There was no official time limit, but everyone shot it quite comfortably within about 30 minutes.

Results:

  • 397 Jimmy B
  • 387 Stan D
  • 373 Richard B
  • 365 Pete F
  • 361 Ian A
  • 345 Andrew M
  • 338 Stephen B
  • 315 Radek T
  • 304 Ross G
  • 304 Simon C
  • 130 Ciaran L
  • No score Dennis W

Everyone really enjoyed it, and thankfully the weather was a lot better than on the original date. We all felt we should do more shooting at 100m, so maybe this could be a regular shoot distance on one of the days during the week?

Comp – Boxing Day Shoot

We ran 2 comps at 25m.

(1) 10 shots in a minute at the bird target, must hit each of the 7 birds once for the 3 additional shots to score, hitting the inner circle or better, off elbow on the bench, no rests. Max score possible = 46.

(2) 10 shots in a minute at the large bull, standing. Max score possible = 100, scored inwards.

Reloading workshop – Sunday 1st December



Are you interested in reloading your own rounds, but confused by how to do it, all the different types of equipment you can use, and all the contradictory information on the internet?

We will run an introductory theory and hands-on session to try to make it all clearer. It is not difficult, but there are quite a few things you need to be careful about.

 

You can seriously hurt yourself or others if you don't know what you are doing!

 

This session will be run in the teaching room next to the cafe, to start at 10am on Sunday 1st December - until around lunchtime. The topics covered will be:

  • The different components involved in making up a round
  • The theory (basic level!) of internal ballistics
  • Some key safety points to take note of
  • The different types of kit you can use when reloading
  • The differences reloading for pistol and rifle rounds
  • The steps involved in actually reloading a round
  • Practical session - have a go!



We will look to run similar events so let us know what you are interested in.
