We only shoot in following disciplines at North Rocks.
1. Bench Rest the rifle is supported on a stand that is sitting on a bench. The shooter sits on a chair or stool and sighting is done via a telescopic sight, normally hi-power 24x-60x, then aligns the cross hairs on the target, squeezes the trigger and looks for the shot hole in the target. Bench Rest on our range is shot at both 50M and 20M.
2. Bench Rest- Sporter in this form of shooting the same stand, bench and chairs are used but the rifle can’t be modified, must be a sporting rifle less than 3.5 kgs in weight with a max power scope of 6x. A spotting scope is normally used to see the shot holes in the target as this can be impossible with a 6x scope. Bench Rest- Sporter on our range is shot at only 50M.
3. Prone the shooter lies on a shooting mat and holds the rifle and sights the target via a non-optical peep sight. When all looks central in the sight the shooter squeezes the trigger and then has to look through a spotting telescope to see the shot hole on the target.
This is an Olympic event and we follow the ISSF international rules with some extra Australian rules for this event. Prone on our range is shot at both 50M and 20M.
4. Standing the shooter stands, holding the rifle while sighting at the target via the same peep sight that is used in Prone. This is also part Olympic event known as 3P or 3 position shooting. Standing on our range is shot at only 50M.
5. Kneeling the shooter kneels on the ground holding the rifle while sighting at the target via the same peep sight that is used in Prone. This is the third part of the Olympic event known as 3P or 3 position shooting. Kneeling on our range is shot at only 50M.
We do not shoot any form of Centrefire, as the Range is only certified for Standard velocity (Sub-sonic) Rimfire rifle shooting
