At the Akarana City Rifle Club Inc we shoot center-fire rifles in four classes, Target Class (TR), shooting open sighted rifles, self supported off the elbows with the aid of a sling, in 308 or 223 calibre, F-Open which is defined as long-range prone rifle shooting in any calibre up to 8mm, F-T/R (and F-T/R C ) class is a .308 (or .223) rifle at ranges from 300 yards to 1000 yards, and hunter class which is any sporting weight rifle. All three latter classes use scopes and the F-Open class rifle is rested on a tripod at the front and a sandbag at the rear while the F-TR and Hunter class uses a bipod at the front.
This is a sport where you can remain competitive (or remain active) for many decades.
The shooting season runs from October to June and shoots are weekly on Sundays commencing at 10am. There are 5 ranges 4/5/6/7/800yds, . Ranges shot depend on weather and farming activities.
There are club rifles both left and right hand, ammunition and necessary equipment for visitors, new shooters and those wanting to have a go.
