Smallbore bench rest is quickly becoming a very popular event throughout Australia.
It is shot seated at a bench with the rifle fully supported by rests – hence the name’ bench rest’.
Many shooters use specialised bench rest rifles but any .22 rimfire rifle with a scope is suitable. Bench is enjoyed by shooters of all ages but as it is much less physically demanding than other disciplines, it is particularly popular with more senior shooters.
There are many competitions held throughout Australia in various locations.
