What Is Match Rifle?

Match Rifle Shooting is 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 ~ 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
