- Pro-Shooter Rifle Club | Country Sports Shop
Pro-Shooter Rifle Club Membership Available to Firearms Certificate Holding Customers of The Country Sports Shop Call In Store For Details .22LR Subsonic Precision Shooting As we are the best gun shop in South Devon with the best customers we have put together a precision .22lr shooting club based at the shop but using Budleigh Target Shoot club range in Moretonhampstead. The club is exclusively for customers of The Country Sports Shop and is not competition based, it is precision shooting based. There are no league tables, no "who's the best shot" status just shooters testing their skills (and their rifles) at ridiculously small targets such as matchsticks, playing cards (side on), Know Your Limits challenges and of course our very own 100 yard paintball challenge! The club will be shooting evenings hopefully twice a month during daylight saving and once per month on a weekend during standard GMT. Basic club rules apply such as the use of breech flags, hearing protection, and following range orders (these will be explained before each shoot whilst on the range) but the emphasis is on having fun and challenging yourself each week and hopefully improving your shooting. The Pro-Shooter Paintball Challenge is on, you will have five shots to check your dialling or hold overs at 100 yards then ten shots at the .50 cal paintball at 100 yards (yes half MOA with a .22LR). Certificates will be issued to those that shoot it and we will have a Wall of Fame on the Pro-Shooter Precision Rifle Club Facebook page. .22LR Darts will be on, there will be a dartboard at 30 yards and we will randomly select a number between 50 and 200 and you will have five shots to shoot that number, not closest to no points for that, the exact number and you must use all five shots! Hostage Shootout will be held at 50 yards, you will score the highest that you dare, the score is only for your own record and then perhaps next time we shoot Hostage Shootout you will aim to shoot a higher score but shoot the hostage and you will lose points! We may run a smaller version at 30 yards if you are all too good. Know Your Limits will be eight targets from 2" to 1/4" at 30 yards scoring points for each target starting at five points doubling for each target you shoot but miss and you automatically score zero. The point of this challenges is knowing when to stop! The Playing Card Challenge at 30 yards is ten shots to shoot six matchsticks followed by a playing card edge on (yes sideways on) The Spinner Challenge is hit the spinner at 50 yards to start the challenge then keep it spinning with nine further shots whilst the spinner is moving but it cannot be allowed to fall backwards or the challenge is failed. Close Quarter Battle there is also a CQB range set up for those looking to try this with their semi-auto .22LR's and / or .22 long barrel pistols. Plenty to do guys and we look forward to seeing you at the range. Long Range Precision Shooting We have NRA Affiliated club to shoot on a monthly basis at longer ranges, out to 600 yards using non-HME firearms, .22 to .30 cal centre fire and everything in between. We will be using local ranges, one towards Dartmouth and one in Somerset. We have Sundays booked from July to the end of the year with more dates to follow shortly. The club is fully insured, Home Office approved and you must already have a Firearm Certificate in order to join. The club is exclusively for customers of The Country Sports Shop. We have five NRA qualified RCO's within the club and a wealth of long range shooting experience. the idea behind the Long Range Precision Shooting isn't so that you can shoot deer over 200 yards away, it is for you to develop as a shooter. Don't worry that you may not have shot long distance before, we have members of the club that fully understand the principles of long range and are willing to assist people to get on target out to 600 yards and possibly beyond.

You've probably heard of the three most important things in business; location, location, location. We in reloading I think the three most important things to get right are; case prep, case prep, case prep. Skip a step and your SD's fly out of the window. Yes the correct amount of powder is important but if you haven't resized your case correctly throwing the correct amount of powder means nothing. If you haven't bumped your shoulders back you will effect case volume, therefore pressure, therefore velocity of your bullet, no good if you are shooting past 600 yards. If you haven't cleaned your primer pocket will you get a consistent ignition? If you haven't got consistent neck tension the pressure build up will vary and so will velocity and so will point of impact. If your cases are stretched will they chamber? If they are split will you blow your gun up? Case prep, case prep, case prep, it will make you more consistent beyond 600 yards. I believe it is why I am able to shoot consistently out beyond 1000 yards. However, if you think this is all a step too far you should probably stick to shooting 100 yards at your local gun club or you may get frustrated!
- Who Is Shooting What?
It is an interesting time in the world of shooting, it seems to us in the shop (The Country Sports Shop) that long range and precision shooting is by far the fastest growing part of rifle shooting with shooters looking to learn new skills and also to stretch their rifles to the edge of their limits. I started life as a hunter and remain a hunter managing deer in a beautiful part of Dartmoor but several years ago I decided that I wanted to use my rifles more so joined a local range. I then became interested in long range shooting, I'm not a target shooter as such even though I shoot at targets (you need something to aim at) as I have no interest in shooting against any other shooter but I have a passion for ballistics (as anyone dumb enough to ask me about ballistics will know) and love testing my skills as a shooter and reloader against longer range targets. To achieve this I have a short range precision rifle in the form of a Ruger Precision Rimfire in .22lr shooting out to 300 yards, a long range precision rifle with a Sabatti STR in 6.5x47 Lapua for shooting out to 1200 yards and an ultra long range rifle with a Howa 1500 Heavy Barrel in an MDT Oryx Stock in .300 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) for shooting beyond that. So what are you guys shooting, are you a hunter, a competition shooter or a precision rifle shooter and what rifles do you have? Let's not make this a competition on who has the best rifle (we all know I do) and I don't want any negative comments on what others shoot, this is just purely out of interest and maybe for you to showcase your beloved rifles.

Agree wholeheartedly. As with most things in life, the better prepared you are, the better the end result tends to be.
