    Longrange Proficiency test

    I set up this test here in Norway so the clubs can get some money into the club coffers and build proper infrastructure. It is also a way to keep the fee low on a LR shoot, but still bring in money for infrastructure as those who want can shoot the test. In Norway we charge NZ$30 per try.

    The test is easy enough to be accessible for most shooters without investing in any special equipment and very little training.
    The test at highest valour is hard enough for experienced shooters to grind their teeth,

    1 target 500 meters or farther.
    1 minute time limit. Start with scope set to zero and rifle butt on ground.
    1 shot. Score according to hit.

    So far three videos to illustrate the test:






    Approved dimensions are:
    Target max 35 cm
    Large circle max 30 cm
    Mid circle max 15 cm
    Small circle max 7,5 cm.
    If target breaks the circle but is not completely inside, it is a miss.


    You cannot test-shoot target same day as the test.
    You can test shoot a different target placed at least 25 meters shorter or farther away. (First shot of the day is not practical on a range)

    You can make a second attempt but then have to shoot at a new target AT LEAST 25 meters farther than any of the targets you have shot that day.
    OR
    You can make a second attempt same target but with a new rifle.
    OR
    You can wait 3 hrs and make a second attempt same target with the same rifle.

    Very interesting Norway.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    No you dial in your scope. You're not allowed to pre-set it to shooting range. You can hold over if you prefer, it is your shot, your decision.

    Target range shall be known to the shooter

    I am guessing they don't. Just a guess though. Range finder perhaps.

    I pity the fool who actually try to measure 525 meters in increments of 3, 5, or 10 meters which is the most common tape measures. If you're going to be inaccurate anyway, you might as well just walk 600 paces.
