We're hosting an open bolt-action rifle competition on Saturday 2 November 2019, at Guntelsey, Thun, Switzerland. E-mail BotR_bolt_challenge@gmx.ch if you want to compete. We can loan rifles if needed.
Open to any Swiss or non-Swiss military bolt-action rifle up to 8mm calibre, bare-bones. Nothing fancy. A celebration of old-school service shooting with a bog standard infantry rifle, with both Swiss and British influences.
Course of fire is:
100m: 2 sighters, then 10 rounds in 1 minute with a compulsory reload of at least 5 rounds (so 5+5 or 4+6). Prone unsupported, no sling. B5 Pistol target.
200m: 10 rounds in 1 minute, compulsory reload as before. Prone unsupported, sling allowed. No sighters. B5 pistol target.
300m: 3 individually scored shots, then 3 shots in 30 seconds as a series, and then 6 shots in 1 minute starting with 1 round loaded, as a series. Prone rested, sling-supported or free. B4 target; series signalled at the end of each.

Firearms history, blokesplaining firearms mechanics, mythbusting, shooting sports and kitschy sketches all in one place. An often dry and sarcastic look at whatever takes the Bloke's and the Chap's fancy in the world of guns and shooting.
