Big Game Rifle
Big Game Rifle began in Victoria in 1983 by a small group of Melbourne enthusiasts. A few years later, groups in Queensland and NSW were also established and now WA.
The disciplines charter is to foster the collection, preservation and use of classic big game rifles.
The rifles in the discipline are hunting rifles and the course of fire attempt to simulate various hunting conditions. Many of the members are active hunters and participation allows them to practice their accuracy as well as rifle handling skills. Safety is paramount, and with the emphasis placed on offhand shooting, rapid fire, rapid reloading and the use of open sights.
No slings are used. Scopes can be used; however in most events a small handicap applies.
