Our Service Rifle club shoots on the 1st Sunday of the month at Hilltop Rifle Range. Sign on and the arranging of targets starts at 9.00am. Practice commences at 10.00 am, competition normally starts about 11.00am.
Members who take part in this discipline use bolt action military style rifles. Most commonly used rifles are The No 1 Mk 3 and No 4 303’s or 6.5 x 55 Mausers. Any bolt action military style rifle that has been in service with the armed forces of any country are eligible to compete on the day.
The majority of our events are shot using open sights at distances varying from 50m 75m 100m 200m and 300m and are usually shot with a number of rounds in a specified time frame… As well as centre rifles used there are some military calibres in rimfire that are also catered for.
