Bench Rest Silhouette

Black Rifle With Scope and Brown Gig Bag


This match is meant to simulate field or hunting conditions from a rest position at long range targets.  In order to make the match as fair as possible, only club provided rest material will be allowed. If a competitor has a rifle equipped with an attached bi-pod; that also may be used instead of the rest material provided. A shooter may also shoot from the prone position instead of using the bench.

How A Match Is Run

The match will consist of twenty rounds, fired in four five shot strings at the chicken silhouette targets placed at 500 meters.

We will use high power rifle silhouette rules for timing and scoring.

For scoring, the competitor with the most chickens knocked down will be the match winner. If there is a tie, it will be decided by a sudden death shoot off.


Eye and ear protection are required at all times even for spectators.

Rifle – There is no weight or caliber restrictions except no magnum and any ammunition that damages the targets will be disqualified. Rifles equipped with suppressors or a muzzle brake are allowed and a bi-pod is acceptable to use instead of the provided rest materials.

Having a coach/spotter equipped with a spotting scope is encouraged.

20 Rounds of ammo.
