Club Results for 17th September

Our last long range shoot of 2017 was quite challenging with purposeful winds coming in from the North East depositing any uncorrected shots high left or low right. Mercifully conditions remained dry and bright throughout the day enabling a number of our members to fall back to 1233 yards where all but two shot scoped rifles of various specifications. Our Club Treasurer and our Club Chairman shot regular TR with 155gr bullets and acquitted themselves well against the higher BC loads used by the others, the Treasurer managing to keep all his shots in the Vee, Bull and Inner!

Murray Cup Results 10th September

Twelve TR, two TR/F and two F Class enjoyed a soggy day with the consolation of light winds enabling some very high scores at all 3 ranges.

Ron Scaglione won the Murray Cup by one V Bull ahead of John Potter, both dropping just 4 points over the day. Ron was also awarded the Smith Tankard for the aggregate of the highest score today and at the Tullibardine 2 weeks ago. Peter Burbridge took the Club F/TR Quaiche and Paul Sandie won the F Class Quaiche.

Thanks go to John Potter for a well managed day, to all those who assisted with the set up, changeover and close down and to Mark for armoury duty at both ends of the day.

Club Results for 31st July

Sunday 31st saw twenty-four members and 3 guests including Alastair from Australia who was kindly allowed to shoot with Paul Crosbies rifle and apparently showed Paul how it's done 😀. We gathered on the range for the second Club long range shoot of this season, weather was mild but overcast with reasonably light wind and the forecast expected showers failed to materialise but the Gods hadn't completely let us off with it as target two was still out of commission and occasionally target five misbehaved however we muddled through the day. The scores don't reflect the turnout as a number of cards were not returned and most of the committee were attending a meeting so didn't complete the shoot.

Club Results for 13th August

A total of18 members and one guest shooter turned out for what was a relaxed day's shooting, weather was kind but with just enough little zephyrs of wind to catch the unwary off their guard and one short shower to cool us down. Noticeable was the absence of a number of F Class shooters who apparently are off to Canada shooting in a major over there, we wish them well.

Club Results for 4th June

Sunday 4th June saw seventeen members, two potential members and one guest turn out for Club shoot number four. As the targets were already set up with 5/600 faces we commenced at five hundred then moved to six hundred then changed the faces before finishing at four hundred. The weather was not particularly kind to us and the gazebo's were soon erected and employed throughout the day, although the wind was finicky it only tried to move the gazebo's back towards the butts at four hundred but was foiled by the rapid application of pegs and straps. Despite the changeable conditions some good scores were achieved and some were unlucky, many thanks to all who pitched in and helped the day run particularly to those few who acted as R O's on the line.

Club Results for 7th May

On a bright & sunny but breezy day sixteen members and four prospective members turned out for Club shoot #3 Shooting commenced after a slow start to the day whilst the range was set up with the first shot going off about 10:30, the target system performed without a hitch throughout the day with the only queries being on the odd shot put on the wrong target. Although the wind conditions were proving tricky every now and then at four & five hundred, when we moved back to six hundred it was noticeably blowing harder and this is reflected in the scores. Thanks to all who helped set up and then close down the range and we hope you all enjoyed the day.

Club Results for 16th April

Our first long range shoot of the calendar was well attended by 26 shooters from West Atholl and the NRCofS.

Conditions were wet to begin with and warranted the use of the gazebos which had been stored in the target shed over the winter, unfortunately we soon discovered evidence of rodent activity with two of the canopies sporting increased ventilation.

The first detail was interrupted by a communication fault but it was corrected and the target systems performed reliably for subsequent details at 900x and the change to 1000x. At the end of the day a sample of shots reported to have landed in the white was cross referenced with a visual inspection of the refaced targets to gauge the accuracy of the newly refurbished systems and we’re pleased to report the fall of shot is being accurately displayed on the firing point monitors. Winds were light but by no means static with numerous 4.9s and quite a few 3.9s being recorded throughout the day.

Club Results for 2nd April

Our first shoot was particularly well attended and delayed for various reasons.

At the start we were delayed due to a simple wiring fault of our own making on target 6, where two acoustic sensors were wired to the wrong positions on the circuit board. The result of this was that high shots were indicated low and vice versa.

Correcting on these indicated shot positions quickly leads to madness, so we stopped the shooting and corrected the wiring. This probably caused around a thirty minute delay.

The rest of the time lost was due to the extreme slowness of members getting into position and in filling in vacant targets. It also took a long time to move between 500 & 600.

Shooting at 600 did not finish till around 1530 hrs and the general feeling was that changing target faces to shoot 400, would result in a very late end to the day.

It was decided that those who wanted to shoot again would shoot a non counting 2 + 10 at 500 yards, the advantage being that people could then leave the range. (Not possible from 600 whilst shooting is in progress)

The weather was kind, with no need for gazeebos, and a light breeze.
