Instructions for the Team of Eight Match

This match is for teams of eight pupils firing on Cadets & Schools cards. Any .22 rifle and ammunition may be used but telescopic sights are not allowed. In each round the best six scores will be counted, so it is possible to enter with just six firers.

Entries are to be made by July 1st with the Autumn League entries.

From 2018 the conditions are to change in that NSRA 1989 10-bull cards will be used and all eight scores to count. Full details are yet to be finalised
