The Aliens have landed ! !

 

What does the benchrest completion for a weapon like that look like ?

Do the distances vary?  What is the longest distances you shoot? 

Do you shoot unknown distances ? 

Do you ever change position during competition, like from bench to prone? 

 

What ammo does your beast prefer, and is there a certain ammo most competitors use ? 

Well, This rifle is an Olympic Small Bore Competition Rifle. Made in Obendorf Germany by Feinwerkbau GMBh. Single Shot bolt action. The course of fire depends on the competition sanctioning body. The 3 position Olympics, for Men, is Prone, Kneeling, Standing 20 shots each @ 50 meters within a set time limit. The Olympic Prone is 60 shots only Prone @ 50 Meters  The ISSF International is 60 shots standing unsupported. We tested 20 different brands/lot #'s of ammo for this rifle so far. 2 brands stand out for practice ammo. Wolf Match/Extra Match and ELEY Match. All of these are 40g sub sonic Match Grade ammo. For Matches we use RWS Special Match and ELEY Tenex

 

Here's the Kicker: This rifle was bought for my son (15 at the time) for competition. He Shoots on his high school rifle team (air rifle) and will be competing as an individual in Jr Olympic competitions until he goes to college in a few years. We have a match coming up in February at Fort Benning Ga at the Army Marksmanship Unit Pool Range Sponsored by the USAMU. He will also be shooting Air Rifle in the Winter Air Gun Championship Match at Colorado Springs In December.
