We frequently run competitions in the club, to allow for a bit of friendly rivalry and provide the basis for a little leg-pulling.
Some of these competitions have run for several years and we have results dating back to 2001 posted online.

Shot at 3 distances all with any rifle, any sights, any position and any rests
The same target for each competitor will be used at each distance and the shots will be scored and marked at each distance.
The idea then is to get your targets back, see were your shots have gone, make the necessary adjustments and hit the egg in the box
Hitting the egg
We all get 1 shot each at the egg at 500m which will be suspended in the centre of a black box. (ie. you can see the egg – but you can not see other peoples shots on box. The idea of this is so you can not tell where others have missed due to wind etc.)
2 Cash Prizes
There will be an entrance fee for the comp of £5. The highest possible score is 135.
If no one manages to hit the egg, the prize fund will roll over to next year.
The idea is as many people as possible to enter the comp so to encourage newer shots. Two ‘sighters’ at each distance for people who have not previously won a BRPC competition and only one ‘sighter’ at each distance for BRPC former competition winners.
Any sights are permitted. Target set at 100m, you are allowed 10 shots with two ‘sighters’. Target scores to be decided by the competition organisers. Benchrest conditions will apply, i.e. any kind of rest, apparatus etc. may be used subject only to range regulations.
Rifle and ammunition in the spirit means; a pre-1899 design of rifle and ammo (the rifle itself need not be original and reproduction rifles are fine), with pre-1899 era ammunition design, though exceptions may be allowed on the day if close to the spirit.
Buffalo targets with scoring zones to be shot at 200m. Shot from a sitting position – crossed sticks allowed – no bipods. Two non-scoring ‘sighters’ followed by 10 shots.
In the case of a draw a shoot off will happen with shot placement closest to the eye (the center of the number 5) winning.
There will be 2 sighting shots at 100 permitted to simulate testing firing your gun before a days stalking. Scoring will be explained on the day. Any rifle, scoped etc., any calibre. Only two types of rest are allowed, again to simulate an actual days stalking, e.g one set of sticks and a bipod, or any combination of two types of rest.
Stripper clips are allowed.
