This match, is shot at 300 metres prone, 200 metres sitting or kneeling and at 100 metres standing, is open to all rifles.

Competitors can use a traditional service rifle or a modern field rifle.  Open sights or optics are also allowed.  So the rule of thumb is if you own it you can shoot it in this match.

For those shooters unable to shoot in any of the three positions we have a classification known as Field Class Prone/Supported where you can compete in the match either from a bench or prone at all three distances
