Target Rifle (TR)

TR involves prone single shot precision shooting using aperture sights (no telescopes) at paper targets (with round bulls) at distances from 300 to 1000 yards. The rifle is supported by a sling (not a bipod). Each shot is scored and carefully recorded and analysed. Once a steady hold, aim and trigger release have been mastered a key challenge is being able to judge the strength of the wind, especially at the longer ranges. This is done by altering the backsight appropriately.
