    You could have a go at Lightweight Sport Rifle, LSR for short.

    Any rifle under 4500 grams in weight including scope, but the trigger pull weight must be a minimum of 500 grams, which most can be tweaked to, unless you are using a Steyr for HFT.

    20 yards standing, using PL14/06 targets.

    Here's an example.[​IMG]

    Hi

    You could give Leicester and District SBR&PC a try.

    Click here L&D

    There are plenty of disciplines to try if you fancy a go at shooting paper targets. L & D is also the home of Dowry Hill Field Target.

    If you fancy it get in touch with the club.

    You could also have a go at airgun bench rest.

    I'm trying to list the disciplines you could take part in without having to buy another rifle; 10 metre is quite specialised in that respect.

    We've got a junior who shoots 10 metre for fun, using a 6fpe S200 with a dioptre sight and does very well indeed.

    Forgot to say, just in case you get the wrong impression, L&D caters for the sport rifle events and benchrest is very popular too. So no need for new kit.

    Get into it. You'll find it compelling; you'll be producing a really good card then your last shot goes to rat poo with the excitement. :eek:o

    Erm yes the Steyr is mine, my Lad shoots the other 2 although had toyed with the idea of putting Dioptres on the 200 winding it down to 6ftlb and trying bell target?

    Quite like the idea of Benchrest not sure how it was shot officially? They did a charity bench session at Kibby through the summer outdoors but I am not sure they used traditional Benchrest rules kit etc, assume it is shot with a scope?

    From memory, the UKBR22 rules define five classes for bench rest. Two of them are for 6fpe rifles, the other three are for 12 fpe and one of them is basically an open class with no restriction on rifle type or scope mag, other than ( I think) a weight limit of 15lb.

    Their comps can be shot indoors - in which case you get 20 mins for 25 shots - or outdoors with a 30 minute time limit. 25 yards or metres. Indoors and outdoors are not separate disciplines or classes, they are lumped together.
