For the majority of the league you can expect to be shooting at different distances from 100-600x in a mixture of standing, squatting, kneeling or prone positions.


The events are run in such a way that half of the competitors will be on the firing point at a time, the other half operating targetry in the butts. On the firing point the first competitor will shot the full course of fire, then followed by the second competitor. If you are new to CSR or would like additional guidance, you can be squadded in such a way that you shoot as the second competitor.


The day is divided up into AM and PM, during both sessions you will shoot and be in the butts. Full details on the course of fire are available in advance.
