    All welcome.

    Not meaning to be daft, but is there the opportunity to zero a rifle from scratch or is it some kind of competition?

    Do we need to bring our own targets etc or are they provided?

    Cheers

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    There will be a few few lanes for practice on DSC type targets and some we used at a recent interbranch shoot , which will replicate a wounded deer with follow up

    All will be clear when people attend.

    You can just zero - targets are provided

    You can come un zeroed and you'll be helped to get set upo and zeroed.

    Should take just three shots for zero...

    You dont have to participate in the branch DSC event

    Your choice what targetry u engage.

    Providing a nominal fee is paid of course

    I'll bring the 'beast' - 9.3X74R double that I haven't got around to zeroing yet.

    Might fetch the .308 too.......
