The NSAI National Sihouette Championship competitions were held on the ECSC range in Roundwood over last weekend. Four separate disciplines were included namely, SBR,SBHR, Air rifle and Unlimited Rifle. The latter discipline is designed to cater for the typical rifles used in the NASRPC Gallery rifle competitions which are held on many ranges throughout the year. SBR and SBHR are usually shot with bolt action rifles such as Anshutz, Sako and CZ provide. The second photograph below shows the variety of rifles which can be used including two Gallery Rifles and an Air rifle
The SBR and SBHR results are combined to establish the overall National Championships for 2017.
