Eight shooters enjoyed the calm conditions last Saturday, shooting from the 400yd mound and many were happy with the high centre count on their scorecards.
When shooting at 400yrds the target frame is 1.2m x 1.2m. The aiming ring has a diameter of 74.6cm.
In Target Rifle and Hunter Class, the centre bull ring has a diameter of 8.6cm while F Class has an X ring with a diameter of 4.3cm. From a distance of 400yds (365m), it takes skill to be able to read conditions and place your shot within these centre rings. At each visit to the range, competitors have two sighting shots and 10 counting shots. In Target Rifle and Hunter class, the highest score is 50 with 10 centres (50.10) and in F Class and F Open the highest score is 60 with 10 centres (60.10)
