UK Sporting Air Rifle Challenge Rules

Best four scores from six events becomes overall champion.

Any air rifle is allowed as long as it has a power output less than 12 ft lbs, which can be subject to a random compulsory chronograph test at each event.

There will be the following classes:
Sporting rifle (factory fitted stock only)
Target rifle*
.22
Recoiling
Junior 9-15
Ladies

*A target rifle will be deemed as any rifle that is fitted with an aftermarket Stock or has an adjustable butt, cheek piece or hamster. HOWEVER – If you have a sporting rifle with an adjustable cheek piece, move it to the closed position, same with the adjustable butt pad, put it in the middle. If you have fitted a hamster, remove it. You may now shoot in the SAR class.

The course will consist of the following 30 targets:
5 of 12mm-15mm hit zone targets from 15-25yds
10 of 18mm-24mm hit zone targets from 8-30yds ( 2 to max 35yrds)
10 of 25mm-34mm hit zone targets from 8-40yds (2 to max 45yrds)
5 of 35mm-40mm hit zone targets from 8-45yds (2 to max 50yrds)

The shot will be taken from a designated area clearly marked with pegs and a number.
The shot may be taken using any safe shooting position from anywhere within this area,  using any available support within the lane. Bean bags and shooting mats may be used to sit/lie/kneel on. You may not use a beanbag or mat as a support for your rifle.
On approaching the firing line you have one minute in which to take your shot. The trigger finger must remain behind the line with the muzzle over it.
You will get 2 for a knock down, 1 for hitting the plate and 0 for a miss.
Averages will be worked out against the maximum score possible for the course, 60 = 100%
Rifles must be pointed down at all times unless on the firing line and only loaded at the firing line.
Any type of scope can be used. Zeroing, magnification and parallax must be set prior to the first shot and left untouched until the course is completed.
Shooters must be 9 or older; all juniors must be under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian on the day.
When a single blast of a whistle or hooter is heard all shooting must immediately stop. Shooters must discharge their rifles into the ground, away from the target, at a safe distance.
Upon hearing two blasts of the whistle or hooter firing may re-commence.
