NRA CSR Falling Plates – Team Match

Teams of 4 firers shoot against each other in a ‘knockout even’t to see who can knock down 10 steel plates in the quickest time.

Teams start in the prone position at 300 yards firing point and on the ‘Go’ signal they must sprint to the 200 yards firing point adopt the prone position, make ready and open fire at their plates. The team knocking all of their plates down in the quickest time (typically 23-25 seconds) goes through to the next round.

Historic Rifles have their own class and whist the plates are the same the only have to run 25 yards before starting to knock them down. The Falling Plates event takes place on a Saturday evening before Methuen Match and has often attracted more than 40 separate teams.

Match Date
