    Target shooting - Britain sets new record in Kolapore match

    Target shooting is not my thing at all, but I read in today's Telegraph that the British team of eight shooters and their three wind coaches set a new record in the Kolapore match at Bisley, with a score of 1,199 and dropping just one point. Each shooter has 10 shots at 300, 500 and 600 yards. There were 201 central bulls.

    Whichever way you look at it, that is some shooting.

    Do you think they may come on hear to ask about loading and bullet type to improve their grouping. I don't think that score would be acceptable to some of our home load stalkers !!

    Being serious, yes that is phenominal shooting.

    I`m sure if they were members on here and took the ammo selection/reloading/rifle choice and the other "valuable advice" on here they would have scored a possible.
    What were they thinking of shooting in a competition and not looking in here ?

    No, sadly it didn't. My guess would be .308, and I'm not sure whether they are allowed home loads. Hopefully someone on here who is more familiar with the world of competition target shooting can enlighten us.

    I assume that it is .308 and issued RUAG ammunition (no home loads).
