Five shooters competed in the Military rifle competition on Sunday 2nd August. It was a ‘range rifle’ competition so peep sights were permitted. Course of fire was five shots at 100yds, 10 shots at 200yds and 5 shots at 300m. The 300m target was very trying for all shooters as the target looks very small through open/peep sights with old eyes; if you manage to land some bullets on the paper, you are having a good day. David Wade managed to snatch the lead from Peter McInerney, with 4 scoring shots on the 300m target followed up by Tony Gestier in third, John Buik in fourth and Bruce Milne in 5th position.

Next week is Lever Action on Saturday then Rimfire Field Rifle and Metallic Silhouette on Sunday.
