Big Game

The charter of the Big Game Rifle Club is to foster the collection, preservation, and use of classic big game rifles in competitions. These competitions are designed to replicate (as near as possible) the style of shooting that these rifles were originally designed for; hunting big game animals in Africa, India and America.


Benchrest shooting is a rifle sport, where the shooter attempts to place five or ten shots into the smallest possible group at distances of 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards. Rifles are fired from rests which comprise a front rest to support the fore-end of the rifle, and a rear sandbag to support the butt.
