Basic Hand Loading Course (National Shooting Centre (NSC), Bisley)

The NRA Hand Loading Course is intended to help the complete beginner decide whether hand loading is the way ahead. Whilst those already loading are welcome, the pace of the course is set for the tyro.

A thorough theoretical introduction occupies the first day, followed on day two by the practical loading session for the common TR calibre, 0.308 Winchester. Users of other calibres will be shown how to extrapolate to their particular one.
All 0.308 Win hand loading equipment and components are provided by the NRA for the practical exercise, as are beverages during the weekend.

Participants are invited to bring their own 0.308 Win firearm to supplement the NRA ones. After being checked and measured, they may tailor the handloads to it, and on completion, test over a chronograph on the Zero range. In view of the great emphasis placed on safety throughout the course, the instructors reserve the right to decline any firearm that may be deemed unsuitable.

The prime objective of the course is that, at its conclusion, participants should be confident to produce safe precision hand loaded ammunition for their firearm.

Course fee: £95

Course times: Saturday & Sunday 9am to 6pm

Please click here to download an application form.
Please note this course is only open to full individual members of the NRA.
Places are limited so early application is advised.

Sat 04 Apr Historic Service Rifle Match (National Shooting Centre (NSC), Bisley)

Following the successful trial event held in October 2014, we are staging another Historic SR Match on the afternoon of Saturday 4 April.

Entries to the trial event were overwhelmingly for British Service Rifles, thus for this match we are restricting the classes to British SR only in SR(a) and (Open).

The Course of Fire (CoF) is based on military practices with standard Fig 11 and Fig 12 targets, shooting from standing, kneeling, sitting and prone. There are no Run Downs included!

The HBSA and LERA have been involved in the development of the event, which has been scheduled the day before the final day of the 2014/15 Civ SR League. Competitors will meet at the 300x car park on Century at 13.10 for a mandatory Range Briefing, with the match shot in the afternoon only, followed by prize giving on range at around 17.30.

We hope owners of British historic Service Rifles will take up the challenge.

Details are on the entry form, which will follow shortly, and will include the Match Conditions and Definitions of Historic Service Rifle.
