S Class is a little bit quiet right now however it is a new year with new shooters and hopefully new venues so fingers crossed we will see some more interest over the next few months.

Quietly plodding along. There hasn't been any updates for a while as my shooting was limited last year for a variety of factors but mainly due to my studies - this will continue during this year as well.

Strathpeffer's competition is down for the 5th of June which will be held over 200-500m and for which I'm looking at using different and possibly more challenging target faces.

It was unfortunate that after the successful Bisley shoot in 2014 another competition down there wasn't arranged for last year. So you may well have to organise your own competition but all the details are on here or in the link Christel posted and if I can help in any way let me know.

BTW any details/pictures of your rifle? fingerscrossed

I was meaning Mag41uk's but if you have new one for S-Class I'll take a gander at it as well! ;)

Nope, nothing new for it however the S&L has just come out to be checked and oiled ready for the year. I use Apel mounts so the zero should be good when the 'scope is taken on and off however first thing next outing is to confirm a 150m zero

I wouldn't mind having a crack at organising something at Bisleycentric.
There are quite a few of us within my club that have sporting rifles of some sort.
The financial logistics is always the tricky one at Bisley at a weekend in summer time.
I will ponder.
I plan on having a go at the sporting rifle events at the Phoenix.
This is my long awaited dedicated sporting rifle.
Its a Tikka T3 Super Varmint in 260 Remington. 1 in 8 twist with 20inch barrel.
It was special order and took about 6 months to arrive.
Only had about 80 rounds through it and zeroed at 200 yards.
It has a Delta Titanium scope mounted in Hawke airgun rings (!)
I have fitted a magazine sled to it and you can just lob a round in and it feeds flawlessly.
Its silly accurate!
