About

The League comprises of 7 full day Competitions between October and April, each of which contest 2 or 3 matches. At the end of the season your best ten match score are totalled to produce your league standing.

Each match is made up of multiple phases which are shot from different distances between 25-600x in a mixture of standing, squatting, kneeling or prone positions. Full details on the course of fire are available in advance.

The Competitions are run in such a way that half of the competitors will be on the firing point at a time, whilst the other competitors operate targetry in the butts.  If you are new to CSR or would like additional guidance, you can be squadded to give you the opportunity to watch a more experienced competitor complete the course of fire first.

Practice Sessions

Finding the time to practice multiple distances leading up to these events has always proved somewhat difficult. However, as of 2022 we have put into place a format which will permit multiple distances for training on the Friday prior to each league match. The event will be run by the HRA and is open to all CSR members. Please contact frankie-hra@gmx.com for more information.
