Due to popular demand Devon Stalking (Facebook) will be having its second gathering on 3rd July with RoundHouse Firearms Training.
The day will give members the chance to shoot steel targets out to a maximum of 500 Yards. Targets range from actual Roe deer size to wild boar shapes and other styles. The day will also give stalkers the chance to practice different fire positions at various ranges without the real pressure of live quarry in front of them. This date will also give stalkers a chance to prepare their rifles for the up and coming season.
The total cost for the day will be £45.00 each, if 15 people or more attend. Due to the organization involved, a 50% deposit will be required before the day. Closing date for deposits WILL be the 1st June.
Moderators preferred but not essential.
Any rifles used on the day must be your own and should be conditioned on your FAC for 'zeroing on land you have permission' (or words to similar effect). The ground is cleared for full-bore, so 'open' or 'closed' FAC is fine. If you have a 'mentoring condition' on your FAC, you must be accompanied by a mentor.
A target impact velocity of 3,100fps is imposed on the reactive steel targets and similarly solid monolithic bullets are not permitted to be used. Expanding/A-Max style bullets are preferred.
Due to the success of the last gathering, this event will be on a "first come" "first served" basis. Stalkers are advised to bring around 100 rounds along with their individual firearms license, these WILL be checked on the day!
All stalkers are to arrive at the farmhouse at 0830hrs; a central brief will be conducted shortly after. Firing will commence from 0900hrs with last rounds down just before 1600hrs.
Please contact Tiff Dew for more information including deposit payments -firstname.lastname@example.org
Directions and final detail will be emailed to you once you have secured your place.
A barbecue with venison burgers is planned for midday.
Thanks for your interest.
