Time to bust some chickens!

Sunday the 17th May Midday Rimfire is Silhouettes! yep rimfire silhouettes are finally here. Set up will start at 12 and shooting once we’re set up!

Targets: 5 chickens at 40 yards, 5 pigs at 60 yards, 5 Turkeys at 77 yards and 5 rams at the 100. You get 5 shots at each distance with a best score of 20 points per round and we have 2 rounds so best out of 40.

We can only shoot .22 lead bullets at steel targets, dont bring copper plated ammo we cant let you shoot it. No exceptions, so check your ammo is black and not gold.

Bring your rest or a bag and put it on the bench to sit your rifle on between distances, this is shot standing unless a disability means you need to sit. You can shoot lever, pump or bolt action scoped or open sights and it’s best to have a handle on your holdover, there’s a bit of difference between 40 and 100 yards with a 22.

Shooters will pair up, one shooting and one scoring rotating after each round, dont expect to be paired with your mate!

Shooters are responsible for setting up their targets, resetting their targets and for bringing them poor little shot up fellas home at days end, so if you dont wanna walk up the range and set up or help out then dont come because we’re not gonna do it for ya! ;0)

Other stuff: The club has purchased an additional 4 sets of silhouettes so we have now 6 full sets, given the irregular terrain we have also bought a bunch of pine sleepers to set the targets up on.

Lets send some chickens!!
