National 50 yard HISTORIC RIFLE SUMMER LEAGUE

Run by the Dorchester Rifle & Pistol Club ...........................................................................CONTACT


The information here is displayed on behalf of the Dorchester R. & P.C. for your perusal and convenience

50 Yards Decimal Summer League

for Small-bore or Miniature Calibre Historic rifles

under the auspices of the
Historic Arms Resource Centre.
We invite entries each Spring for a summer league in four classes

SERVICE RIFLE...........CLASSIC RIFLE..............VETERAN RIFLE................POST-VETERAN RIFLE

to be run on similar lines to the current Winter Rifle League
but shot on 50 yard decimal TARGETS .

*******************

COURSES of FIRE

In each class, in each round, competitors will fire 20 shots at
two double-bull TARGETS , and 5 shots at each diagram.
In the Service and Classic classes the TARGETS used are the Tin-hat cards and for the Veteran class there are the equivalent target with round black aiming marks.

The competition will consist of ten rounds, two rounds to be shot
during each of the months of May, June, July, August and September.

Scores in the first two rounds will be used to determine, by average, the
make-up of each division.

In order to keep cost to a minimum, Clubs will be asked to appoint
a responsible person to score their members cards and to forward
the scores to reach me by the end of each relevant month.
Where this is not possible, the shot cards should be sent to me for scoring.

TARGETS will conform in size with the N.S.R.A 5002C cards (310 x 140mm) @ £7.00 per 100 plus £3.00 p & p

Smaller quantities pro rata.

The entry fee per competition will be £6.50 (figure to be confirmed for this year)


Entries to be sent by 2nd. week of April each year

For cards and entry information plus any enquiries please e-mail us
