We’re hosting an open bolt-action rifle competition on Saturday 2 November 2019, at Guntelsey, Thun, Switzerland. E-mail BotR_bolt_challenge@gmx.ch if you want to compete. We can loan rifles if needed.
Open to any Swiss or non-Swiss military bolt-action rifle up to 8mm calibre, bare-bones. Nothing fancy. A celebration of old-school service shooting with a bog standard infantry rifle, with both Swiss and British influences.
Course of fire is:
100m: 2 sighters, then 10 rounds in 1 minute with a compulsory reload of at least 5 rounds (so 5+5 or 4+6). Prone unsupported, no sling. B5 Pistol target.
200m: 10 rounds in 1 minute, compulsory reload as before. Prone unsupported, sling allowed. No sighters. B5 pistol target.
300m: 3 individually scored shots, then 3 shots in 30 seconds as a series, and then 6 shots in 1 minute starting with 1 round loaded, as a series. Prone rested, sling-supported or free. B4 target; series signalled at the end of each.

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
