.22 Rimfire Benchrest Shooting Group
If you have an interest in this discipline, or would like
to give it a try, contact Ken DeCarle at 250-247-7639 (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
The objective is to provide an opportunity for friendly, low-cost, .22
rimfire benchrest rifle competition. After the official shoot (see Shooting Sequence and Scoring), participants are welcome to shoot
informally until all ammunition, energy, or frustration is expended.
Firearms, sights, and rests
There is no limit on the weight of
the rifle or barrel length/diameter. Triggers may be adjusted to a light pull,
but must be safe.
There are two (2) categories of sights used: "iron" and Enhanced.
Any factory-made single-shot or repeating .22 rimfire rifle equipped
with iron sights. Aperture (peep) sights are permitted.
Essentially, any sight other than iron. This may include telescopic, red dot, or laser.
Only one-piece rests (or bipods) are allowed, and must be
used to support the fore-stock or barrel only. Rests must not be secured to the
bench, or be capable of "return to battery". In this case, return to
battery means that the rest allows the rifle sights to remain on target
after a shot is taken, with little or no input from the shooter required to
re-acquire the target for the next shot.
Ammunition must be .22 Short, Long, Long Rifle ( also .22 WMR during permitted firing windows . . . Tuesday, Friday and Saturday between noon and 3 p.m.). Choice of ammunition
manufacturer, grade, or quality is up to the shooter, as is bullet weight,
(factory-applied) coating or lubrication, and use of solid or hollow-point
Based on the Shooting Federation of Canada 50m Rimfire Rifle Target. See
PDF target file available HERE (also available on the Library_Reference web page).
Ken D. will print up the targets and charge a nominal
fee for them at each meet.
Shooting Sequence and Scoring
On the shooter s own time, but not to
exceed 20 minutes, on 2 targets. No official score recorded.
10 rds, fired within 10 minutes, on each of
10 rds, in 2 strings of 5 rds each, fired
within 1 minute for each 5-rd string, on 1 target.
Maximum score on each Slow and Rapid target is 100. In the case of a
tie, the smallest group wins. If more than one group measures the same
diameter, the one closest to the X-ring wins. In order to count, a group must
consist of all 10 rounds, and all 10 rounds must be on the paper for the target
to count. Scores to be determined by the designated match officer, using an
official scoring plug and template, if necessary.
