Benchrest Shooting

Benchrest is a discipline of target shooting shot from a bench from a seated position.

The rifles are supported on the bench by a front rest and back bag. At Buxted we have both indoor or outside facilities for sub 12 ftlb Air rifles.

The targets are set at a distance of 25 meters for Air rifles. The targets are A3 in overall size each one consisting of 25 individual scoring targets and 5 sighting targets down each side.

Multiple shots can be taken at the sighting targets but only one shot per scoring target is allowed. This is shot within a 20 minute detail. If outside wind flags are also used to aid accuracy and help the shooter determine wind speed and direction.
