Hi all

After some recommendations on rifles. I don't have my FAC yet but I want to have a good idea of what I am going to buy in advance. If nothing else I am sure this will be helpful when the FEO visits....

I will post my intended slots, what I will use them for and my budget for each, plus my current plans.

.22LR Target Rifle - For use at the club weekly doing 25 yard prone shooting - £500 second hand - Anschutz 1903

.22LR Bench Rest - Similar to above but with optical sight & mag for bench rest - £500 second hand - ???

.22LR LSR - for LSR so less than 4.5kg, magazine fed - £300 - Ruger 10/22???

.308 Full Bore Target - For shooting 300-600 yards as Bisley and possibly up to 1000 yards at some point - £Undecided yet... - Remington 700?


Budgets are rough guides and can vary if needed. I am anticipating being knocked back on one in which case I would lose the benchrest and maybe try and dual purpose one of the others for this....

Thank you in advance!!

I would also recommend a moderator for each caliber. Its always best to ask for more and get knocked backed by a couple but if you don't ask you definitely won't get it.

Yes sorry I should have put that. I plan on putting a mod for each too. I was going to put 2 x .22 and 1 x .308

That lot doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Its likely they will only let you have 500 .22 on first grant which you'll go through quickly if you are going to actually shoot all your rifles regularly.
One of the questions they will ask your club secretary is do they have the facilities for you to shoot all the rifles you are applying for. Does your club run ranges at Bisley or are you a member of a club that shoots there? They might need to know about that before they let you have a rifle.
My club for example doesn't have facilities for full bore but we use Thorpe Cloud range throughout the year and we supply our own range officers so that's okay.

Thanks for your comments. Yes our club shoots full bore at Bisley. Everything I have chosen is for a discipline that the club shoots, either in house or at Bisley. I was going to ask for 1200 .22 so I can buy a batch of 1000 (for price breaks and consistency). If they knock me down to 600 then that's fair enough...

Don't use price as a reason, they specifically don't allow that I'm afraid.

I will stick to consistency then. Also there is the possibility I may want to use different ammo in the semi auto and bolt actions. I may hold onto that to increase my capacity after a year or so when I have had a chance to blow my way through a few thousand rounds!

Always ask for more than you think you’ll get. You might be lucky. Don’t use money saving to justify it though.

Tak into the considerations also CZ rifles. Very well engineered and in my opinion very good price quality ratio. I am considering buying the new comer CZ 457 MTR varmint to be used with the optics.
