Field and Service

Field and Service

This match, is shot prone at 300 metres, sitting or kneeling at 200 metres and at standing at 100 metres, is open to all rifles.  If shot at more than 300m then it must be shot prone or supported from a bench.

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

Rifle categories are as follows: Field Class, Service Class, Service Sniper and Field 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 distances

The target is a standard black and white 4 foot target.
