Center Fire Bench Rest Group

Welcome to the Center Fire Bench Rest Group discipline page!

There will again be a Center Fire Bench Rest League this year.

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 Centerfire Benchrest shoots will be conducted on the 100 yd / 500 meter range on the back property. The 100 yard target will be used for both the 100 yard and 200 yard matches. Hope to see you for the matches on Saturdays.
