2017 Shooting Federation of Canada Rifle Results


Once again the 2017 National Matches encompassed both Rifle and Pistol disciplines and was held on the range built for the 2015 Pan-Am Games; and most events were fired on electronic targets. Sporting Rifle was electronic for the first time ever; Hunting Rifle was fired on paper targets (most shooters use scope sights and the electronic targets have no center aiming point for cross-hairs). In the Pistol matches Standard Pistol and Center-Fire Pistol were electronic after being on paper targets last year.

The weather for the match was generally excellent, though about half-way through it got “interesting” with a few showers and thunderstorms. It didn’t cause any problems on the range that I know of. And the day after the Rifle matches finished (Pistol matches were still being fired) it turned cool.

We thank all the shooters who competed this year. And we thank all the officials who operated the match and managed to cope when things didn’t go as well as they might. It is their dedication that makes matches like this possible.

The course of fire will be 2 X 60 shot matches fired from the prone position at 25m. The first match will be 60 shots with Iron Sights, and the second match will be 60 shots with Any Sights, meaning scopes may be used, or you may stick with iron sights – your choice.
