Richard, you can shoot this in either the Service Rifle or Unlimited category.   Service Rifle is “iron sights” only, no magnification.  “Unlimited” is intended to be just that, any Lee Enfield rifle with any sight.

I took my 1918 SMLE .22 to the range on Saturday. Here's two targets of 10 shot's each.
One using RWS Match ammunition and the other SK Match.
Due to there only being one free space available when I arrived; which was a bench.
 So I had to shoot from sitting position, with elbows on the bench (without extra support).
This rifle is totally standard with original iron sights.




First time with this type of target; so not great; but I would say reasonable for a standard 102 year old rifle. 94/100 with the SK ammo  and 92/100 with the RWS. 
I will have to try again from the prone position.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Looks good Zed.  Once you get prone in the sling, I’m sure you will clean the target.  Then I’d like you to work towards 100-10x, you have the skill.

Just received 100 SR-1 targets today.  Resolved the bedding issue I had and will be posting the results from the range this Wednesday...

If there are more members that will participate if we change the “rules” to allow shooting the Service Rifle class off the bench unsupported (i.e. off the elbows, no sandbag or rest) I can edit the rules to include this.  Some may find it hard to get into (and out of) the prone position.  Let me know.  The idea is to get as many members out to the range as possible. 

While prone in sling is the most stable, as far as I’m concerned you can shoot the Service Rifle and .22 Trainer class in any position as long as you don’t use a support under the rifle.  If you want to shoot off a bench with support (sandbags or rest) you can shoot in the Unlimited class.  

Shooting in the “sitting” position means to me that your sitting down on the ground.  Sitting in a chair with elbows on a bench is “shooting off the bench”.

Due to a near fatal trucking accident 5 years ago,  I am very limited to how I can shoot. I can stand and shoot but only if I am walking and my target is moving. I can lay down but require the use of some form of rifle stability other than my elbows. The bench is my best friend in conjunction with a forward support like a bag as well as the use of my left hand to manipulate the fore and aft movements to aquire the target. I was trained and taught to use everything and anything at my disposal to pinpoint my intended target and make the necessary shot. I will have to stay embedded within my current shooting platform and continue to use the Unlimited Rifle Class rules...

No problem Goosic, I want to accommodate as many of our members and as many variants of our Lee Enfields as we can, hence the reason for the three different classes.

Sham, I’m fine if you want to shoot the Service Rifle class sitting at the bench, as long as you don’t use a support under the rifle, just off the elbows.  You might be able to shoot with a sling that way too.  I don’t think that gives you any advantage over shooting prone.  

 For the Unlimited class, I’m expecting everyone will shoot off the bench with support (a rest, sandbags, etc.).

I will happily join in when Bisley is open again, if I may? 
I tend to shot prone just with the sling as support. 
Can we enter in each class?

I got my targets in today. I don't expect to clean any targets but getting into prone is not my primary concern.
It's getting back up Cry and being able to focus on the front site clearly!

Ill have to remember center- center- center and throw in a little line of white hold for my British rifles.
It'll be fun to get out and do some shooting no matter what happens.
Looking forward to having some fun.

Sinnlover, yes, you can enter in each class.  And if you shoot a better score later, post that target photo and score.  I’ll be reviewing all the scores in each class and write up an honor roll at the end of the year.  

Doco, glad to hear you are joining in.  I find just regular reading glasses (“cheaters”) to be effective to see the front sight, doesn’t matter that the target is fuzzy.  I also use the 6:00 hold with just a sliver of white showing between top of foresight and bottom of black aiming mark.  Some shooters effectively use a “center mass” hold, it doesn’t work for me.

Just found out that Rso`s only are able to use the range during this enhanced lock down, so I may book some time and do some 303 shooting.
I think the range has the appropriate targets.
So how many times can one submit targets during this competition?
I`ll be shooting No.1 MkIII(no*) 1915, iron sights and No.5 Mk1, 1944 iron sights, both in SR and unlimited, seated at the bench as this is our only option, elbows and sand bags if that`s OK
Both these rifles are full military stocked with their original sights, I cant see worth poop, so this should be interesting.

shoot em if you got em
