    i did the same, only with the Jelen DVD which was excellent. My assessment was at Donnington Deer with David Stretton - and it was all done in one day and was very professional, but informal. Top marks to all.

    Hi, Could you tell me what the shooting test consists of?

    Shooting test:

    3 shots on the zeroing card, all shots must be within the 4" circle

    6 shots to be taken at the deer silhouette with:

    2 shots prone 100m
    2 shots sitting or kneeling of sticks or bipod 70m
    2 shots standing off sticks or free hand 40m

    you have to make the 6 good shots in the one course of fire or restart. You can have 3 attempts in one day.

    all shots need to be within the kill area of the target that is a bit bigger that half the size of an A4 bit of paper but oval

    Bigger than half the size of an A4 bit of paper but oval.

    That will be the the Irish shooting test then?

    If you would like to see an actual test, this was mine:






    I was quite pleased with the scoring as I hadn't shot the rifle before and it was a righthander and I shoot lefthanded.
