NRA CSR Winter League April

What a cracking day, as these two matches always are, these shoots conclude the 23/24 winter league season


Most people would say these matches should be a cake walk as it is electronic fall when hit targets, scoring is just a hit x4 points, so no trying for the 5 rings, and no butts to manage. But, its not the case, the two matches are designed to get the shooter thinking about the course of fire.


Roupell: A prone and a fire trench practice, the prone practice has a 6 second up and hold at 200m, I watched more than a few people only get two rounds off instead of three, you have to be quick! A kneeling supported and an off hand practice, both snap shoots with very quick targets particularly at 100m.


Roberts: Practice one with its run and 2x 10rnd mag dump in any order catches many out, if you can get 7 or 8 off at 100, its good, then expend the first mag at 200 then change and use your last mag of ten at 300, again, be quick, 25 seconds at 300 isnt long! The neck breaker or Agony snaps, at 200/300m, this 7 minute practice should get you 10/10 hits, but its not that easy, take a breath at the wrong time and its a target gone!


And on top of all that, some knarly 12 mph wind behind the shooter gave some shooters problems, it was moving slightly right to left, do you put wind on or not, personally, I put a minute to the right on just to hold the 300s!
