Prone Rifle any sight Shoot. Saturday 10th Sept 2022 ECSC. Results

This was a “Double Dewar” competition which meant that there were twice as many shots as usual. 80 in all. More pain for the knees and elbows, especially for the older members. But pain is no barrier for the dedicated shooters amongst us.

We had two full details for this competition, spread across the different disciplines, 14 shooters in all. Each shot two targets at 50 metres and two targets at 100 yards. Conditions were good and so were the scores which can be seen in the attached table. 5 people shot in the “sling and jacket “class and 9 in the “rested bipod” class. The rested scores were slightly higher, as you would expect, but the” sling and jacket class” ran close. The variety of rifles and scopes used was interesting and I am only sorry that I did not think to take photos of each Rifle so that you could see the various set ups. I will endeavour to do this for the next competition, which will take place before the end of this year.

The overall winner was Anthony F. returning from a break in competing in the last few weeks. A well deserved win. First in the ” sling and jacket” class was Sandy W. First in the “bipod class “was Keith F who can be seen in the pic below as the only one doing any work! This was his first win in a major competition. Well done Keith!
