We have pioneered the "Open" Long Range Shooting Days in South Africa.

Our aim is to further the interest in long range shooting amoungt all rifle owners regardless of calibre or make of weapon / optic.  All that matters is that the weapon is functional and that the rifle scope is adjustable for elevation / windage.

Due to the fact that our facilities are strictly private and reserved, invitations will only be extended to our clients and historical participants.

In these events participants are required to engage in numerous targets 1.5 - 2.5 MOA in size over various distances between 300m to 1509m within a prescribed time limited.

You may enter 4 classes:- 

 

1.   Standard Class:

  • All standard built (factory), non-magnum or modified rifles.  These rifles may however fitted with aftermarket stocks, triggers and accessories. 

  • Barrel length:  Factory fitted 16–26 inches.

  • Calibres between .224 to .338.

 

2.   Tactical Class:

  • All factory .556Nato (.223 Remington) and 7.62x51Nato (.308 Winchester) calibre rifles.  These rifles may however be fitted with aftermarket stocks, triggers and accessories.

3.   Open Class:

  • All magnum, improved or custom built rifles. 

  • No limits to barrel length and they may be fitted with aftermarket stocks and accessories.

  • Calibres from .224 - .338.

The objective would be:

-  Engage maximum amount of targets.

-  Reaching out to the furthest distance.

-  Within the prescribed time.  Time bar will be applied after 8 minutes and you will be asked to stop shooting.

-  To keep it fair, no spotting/assistance of any nature will be allowed.  Only your skill will count.  Compete against yourself and better your handicap each month.

Event will commence with an hour’s DOPE testing.  Although a 100m zeroing facility is available we would prefer that your zero already be confirmed prior to the day.
