Alastair J. Munro
10 September 1916 - 1 September 2016
Blair Atholl, Scotland

Members of Australian Match Rifle Teams that have toured in Scotland will mark with great sadness the passing of Major Alastair Munro earlier this month - only 9 days short of his 100th birthday. Alastair was the Range Warden at Blair Atholl from its opening in 1977 until he gave up full bore shooting at the age of 93. He warmly welcomed Australian teams to Blair Atholl during their respective tours and we  extend our sympathies to his family and the West Atholl Rifle Club on the passing of a truly remarkable person.

What Is Match Rifle?

Match Rifle Shooting is long range target shooting conducted over the distances of 1000, 1100 and 1200 yards or 900, 1000 and 1100 metres  - i.e. where normal full bore target shooting stops, Match Rifle shooting starts!

Great Britain and Australia are the leading exponents of Match Rifle shooting. It was established in United Kingdom over 150 years ago. By comparison Match Rifle shooting in Australia is in its infancy only commencing in the mid 1990s.

Match Rifle shooting uses centre-fire .308W  rifle with telescopic sights (if desired). It can be shot either prone or supine (back gunning). In the prone position a rest for the front hand or forearm is allowed. Equipment Ideas

Match Rifle events and Associations in Australia also cater for Long Range F Class Shooters
