A Long Range fullbore Target Rifle shooter in the prone position.



QRA Fullbore Rifle Club members enjoy the challenge of long range shooting and competitions, shooting at stationary targets.

The targets are at distances between 300 and 1000 yards and the shooter is in the prone position, where the shooter lies down facing the target, supported by their elbows and upper body (see picture above).

With discipline and practice, a skilled shooter will hit the bullseye  using a single shot bolt-action rifle of .308 or .223 calibre.

If you would like to try out this sport before joining a club, contact your local QRA affiliated club for an introduction. Click here for Club contacts.
