  7. Post Challenge Report - Winter 2018 RRC Last Saturday, as a winters dawn slowly broke across the highlands of Cornwall, twenty nine shooters prepared for a full day of precision rifle shooting. With the safety briefing and 100m zeroing completed, a single shot on the 636y Thomas Haugland Long Range Proficiency Test steels soon saw some scratching of heads; as targets displayed zero impacts. There really was no wind to be found, despite appearances... Squads of five or six shooters then proceeded to rotate through the six distinctly different, at times very challenging, morning stages. Shots varied from an IPSC with Fig 14 Hostage target alongside at 650y (to be engaged sitting from a barrel), through to ten rounds at a 300y two MOA gong, from five different positions in a sleeper wall within two minutes. As midday passed, a quick barbecue lunch with homemade mince pies and brownies kept spirits high and then it was straight into the afternoon stages. The six stages were spread across a 400m long firing line, with hedges and rabbit warrens adding to the more traditional tank traps and barricade walls. A 237y five shot group on a playing card may not at first sound too difficult...But when combined with a chest high stone wall topped with an electric fence, the requirement to locate and engage your card all within a 1.5min time limit; it soon proved quite the challenge. Glenn J. took the smallest group title by a mere 2.25mm and won the £50 voucher donated by Gary Lowe of Practical Precision UK. Other stages included locating and engaging UKD steels with just one shot per target, leaving no margin for error. Good data and correct wind calls really came to the fore here, with those who had put the practice in being duly rewarded. The day concluded back in the indoor range with a tally of scores. Josh M. took a very respectable first with 78 ex 140, comfortably clearing the pack leaving Glenn J. in second on 72 and Paul C. third with 67. A big thank you to all the RCO's and sentries who travelled considerable distances to support this event, without which it simply wouldn't of happened! Looking forward to this year, the next RRC on the 4th & 5th of May will be the inaugural Precision Rifle League Challenge. http://precisionrifleleague.co.uk In preparation for the PRL, there will be a training and ELR weekend over the 16th & 17th of March. Booking for both the training weekend and RRC is now open! Please contact me directly at roundhousefirearms@gmail.com for further details and to book in. Finally on a personal note, I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and thank you for your continued support with The Roundhouse and now the Precision Rifle League! Plus, if you haven't already, please join the PRL Forum to further support precision rifle shooting in the UK and beyond. http://precisionrifleleague.co.uk/forums/

  11. The Precision Rifle League will encompass existing events throughout the United Kingdom and equally encourage new precision rifle shooting. The PRL’s primary aim is to provide a positive resource for fellow shooters, helping to develop and expand precision rifle shooting for the benefit of all. There are several unique precision rifle events across the UK. However until now, there has been no single point of reference in relation to these great shoots. The league is designed to address this, promoting these event and enabling shooters to see their progress on a national level for the first time. Matches or Challenges as they are better known, will range from Scotland to Cornwall. Individuals can enter as many challenges as desired, with the top two scores from different locations counting towards their PRL Leaderboard place. The Leaderboard will be split into two main elements: Open Division or Factory Division. After the final round of the year is fired, trophies and prizes will be awarded to the top three in each division. Beyond this there are sub categories such as International, Ladies, Parasport etc. Additionally if you have made the commitment to attend two separate challenges and thus are on the Leaderboard, you will be entered into the Precision Rifle League Sponsors Raffle. This random raffle ensures no bias and guarantees everyone on the leaderboard (regardless of placing) has an equal chance of winning a prize. The Challenge Calendar for 2019: 4/5th May – Spring Roundhouse Rifle Challenge 25/26th May – Gardners Guns Challenge 15/16th June – TBA Soon… 13/14th July – Summer Roundhouse Rifle Challenge 7/8th Sept. – Gardners Guns Challenge & Sponsors Raffle For further information and the PRL Forum please visit: http://precisionrifleleague.co.uk
