(3) At 300x, a single DP1 target.

c. Exposures As shown in paras 3, 4, 5 and 6 below.

d. HPS Each hit will score 4 points. The individual HPS (Highest Possible Score) is therefore 160 points. The number of hits will be read out at the end of the match.

b. Firers will be ordered to load with 10 rounds, apply safety catches and lay the rifles on the firing point. They are then to dress back and adopt the standing position 100x behind the main firing point. The order "Watch Out!" will be given.

c. The first exposure of the 100x target is the signal to advance to the firing point, adopt the prone unsupported position, pick up the rifle, make ready and open fire.

d. Any number of shots may be fired at each exposure except that only three hits will count on the target at 200x.

e. At the end of this practice, firers will be ordered to unload and their rifles will be cleared.

4. Practice 2 Procedure

a. Timings in this practice will be as follows:
(1) One exposure of four seconds at 300x,

e. After the final exposure, firers will be ordered to unload and rifles will be cleared.

5. Practice 3 Procedure

a. Timings in this practice will be as follows:
(1) Five series of exposures of two targets at different ranges, the first exposure being for six seconds and the second exposure for three seconds. There will be a two second interval between exposures.
(2) There will be a total of four exposures at 300x, three at 200x and three at 100x.
(3) There will be a 15 second interval between each pair of exposures to allow firers to move back two yards.

b. Firers will be ordered to form up two yards behind their firing point, load with a magazine of 10 rounds and to make ready. They will be ordered to adopt the 'Standing Alert' position, and the order "Watch Out" will then be given.

c. On the appearance of the targets firers are to advance to the firing point, adopt the "Kneeling " position, release safety catches and open fire.

d. On the disappearance of the targets the firers are to apply their safety catches, move back two yards (keeping the rifles pointed down the range) and adopt the "Standing Alert" position without further order.

e. This procedure will then be repeated four further times, giving a total of 10 exposures in all.

f. Firers will then be ordered to unload and rifles will be cleared.

A hessian sack or coat of paint might be in order, as long as the targets are easily definable against the background who cares. Are the NRA going to paste over DP faces?

The NRA have plain green targets. A DP target will paste over it - we tried and it fits nicely. The only downside to pasting a DP on them is that people will tend to shoot at the centre of the wrist area all the time - which will make a big hole in that area and make the target useless. Without the DP on it, people will just shoot all over the target, making it last longer...

Not everyone will be able to shoot in the middle, and the Military do not have a problem with the Figure Targets on their ETR ranges so long as they are changed when required.

As long as the target can be easily picked out from the background who cares what colour it is. The centre of mass will always get the most punishment.

Yep, for ETR targets having a set that isn't shot out is the key

Should be fun to see and hear all the protests for these shoots

'I hit my target and it didn't go down' will be heard accross the range

I completely agree - but then the MoD isn't looking for a ROI on their targets...

Ha ha, but Landmarc is, having seen some of the targets with the middle REALLY missing!
Link Posted: 11/2/2007 2:50:09 AM EDT
Landmarc are supposed to be providing a service; they are to their Stockholders but not necessarily to the Range users.

However, if the NRA is going to try to get the ROI from the ETR set up they will have to accept that targets do get shot out and need replacing. This will be particularly true with the NRA targets potentially seeing both .224 and .30 cal bullets, although I don't expect that their set up will suffer the volume of lead and copper seen on most military ranges, so a target face change may be quite a while off yet.

Oh, and it's a well know fact that there is no point challenging your score on an ETR range, protest if the targets malfunctioned and you're exposure was not correct, but if you think you had more hits than the system has recorded then Tuff Luck. Oh, and remember you may have missed.

There may be as many as 6 new to SR (and in some cases shooting) firers attending the event from the NRA Shooting Club (welcome if you are reading this).

I am asking for support, from those here, who can mentor these new shooters at their first SR shoot. This includes the many LURKERS!

They will need coaching and in some cases to borrow a rifle, they can purchase ammunition themselves.

Lets help to make SR a growing sport at Bisley, it will pay dividends for us all.

Get the word out to your local clubs too, Gallery and ETR matches at Bisley this season

Wont be able to make it for the first match of this winters league, but will be there for the December match.

I reckon with all the aggro being caused by the 3800J issue that a lot of shooters may well decide to try their hand at SR shooting instead.........you know TR and MR shooters may hang that wooden gun up and buy a decent black rifle that wont be affected by the new limits.

Will this be a good thing or a bad thing??????

With the 9 Lane CGR set for Stickledown soon, should be good for business
Combine that with the option to have further reactive shoot / no shoot tgts at random distances for a 'Sniper Pairs' / Tac rifle match

I will probably be there but HP take priority, I'll decide later this week.

The 100m run at the start of the Roupell is going to catch a few people out, you have to run like "*^& to get a shot at the first target before it disappears.

Are there going to be any posts to simulate cover for the kneeling stage?

25 secs exposure, not that bad, no respirator this time And, if you miss that exposure you are allowed to use that round within the first stage.

Unlikely to be posts, as the kit will have only just been put into place in the days before.
In time there will be the full setup.

Actually I don't seem to be in hardly at all this month, lot's of time owing. Apart from a callout and a training day I'm only doing five days with my main hat on, and only two of those to go... 'Spose I could pop in for a few days in December before I have 3 weeks off over Christmas..

Anyway, shouldn't you be out overcharging unsuspecting customers so you can buy exotic rifles.......obviously made enough for the day..........

Had a great day at Bisley yesterday for the SR match.

The ETR's on Stickledown for the afternoon match worked really well, lets hope they become a permanent fixture. (I've sent an email to Martin Farnan to show my support )

Who here managed to hit the first ETR at 100m after the 25 seconds rundown ? I managed to get that one, but made a mess of the rest

Many thanks to all those who have worked hard to promote SR & bring the ETR setup to Bisley

Heres a few pics I took with my N95:

Even Bogtrotter used one.


As long as the NRA offer a class for it I’ll probably do so.
Ok here’s why I do it.
I have two thirty round magazines neither of which perform flawlessly in my rifle if mag rested. They both rock slightly in the mag well. One seems to work best if the rifle is pushed fully forwards and one seems to work best if the rifle is pulled fully back. One is prone to feed problems if not lifted clear of the ground when cocking and one works pretty well. ( although pretty well isn’t what I’m looking for in a competition.)
I don’t enjoy shooting as much if I am mag resting because the groups open up due to the mag rocking in the mag well under recoil, enough to cost a few points here and there and I don’t want to be thinking about whether I should be pulling back or pushing forwards on the rifle for the particular mag in use and moving out of my shooting position in order to lift the rifle enough to recock it. The 30 round mag is just at the right height to have the tip of the butt of the rifle sit exactly on my collar bone when prone, not in the shoulder pocket.( admittedly I have a slightly deformed collar bone due to a motorbike accident) Under recoil the tip of the butt often slips under the collar bone , movement under recoil is not desirable and it means yet again having to adjust position slightly and after a while frankly it hurts.
Yes I could probably adjust the butt plate to overcome this with whatever knock on effects to my other shooting positions and I could buy another 10 mags and burn up hundreds of rounds finding one or two that work or modifying them with wedges so they don’t move in the mag well but I don’t have the luxury of enough time or money to persue this goal, especially when there is a class I can shoot in without having to.

If I can turn up and shoot in open class then I will, because I enjoy it more, even if it means I can no longer judge how well I’m shooting compared to the top names. If I can’t shoot off my bipod then I’ll happily shoot in service class and abide by the rules for that class although at the end of the day I’m bound to feel a little frustated knowing I could have done a bit better if the mags worked better.
I can understand the reason for a lot of the rules but some seem odd, and may be putting some people off having a go. I assume they are to bring us in line with Army rules but they rarely come with an explanation as to why they are being introduced so some can seem a bit arbritary. But , for instance why allow mag resting but not a monopod or resting the pistol grip, why not just say a single point of contact with the ground, or no part of the rifle may touch the ground? Why no vertical forward grips when the army AUG shooters can use them? Why no soft padding for knees and elbows or shoulders for that matter, as most of us are old gits now. Trigger weights also worry me a bit as most of us don’t have adjustable triggers so if we fall outside the limits ( which seem a little on the high side for civvie shooters) does it mean we can’t shoot on the grounds of safety?
I think to encourage more people into the sport maybe we should look at simplifying some of the rules rather than adding more.
Anyway don’t want to start a shitstorm just explaining why I prefer my bipod.

It was a good shoot and the Saab targets wroked well and made for a much more interesting days shooting.

Are the results up anywhere yet?
