.22 Benchrest



Our group meets once a month over the summer to shoot competitive benchrest using .22 rimfire rifles only at 50yds. All matches start at 2pm for the first relay and a second relay (if needed) will start shortly after 3pm. Each relay shoots two of the Smallbore Rifle 25-bullseye targets below, in a time limit of 30 minutes per target, with a 5-minute sight-in time allowed preceeding the first target.



All competitors are asked to bring their own rest, ammo and for safety reasons, an ECI (Empty Chamber Indicator) to indicate the rifle is safe and unloaded when not in use.

There are two classes of rifles which are recognized:
Light Rifle Class: Any rifle with any sights which weighs 8.5lbs or less; and
Unlimited Class: Any rifle with any sights which weighs over 8.5lbs.

2018 Schedule:
April 7th
May 5th
June 2nd
July 7th
August 4th
September 1st


1st Relay starts at 2:00pm
2nd Relay (if needed) starts shortly after 3pm
Fee: $5.00 per match. You can enter and shoot both classes using a different rifle.
