Lever Action Cast Bullet Shoot

The final Lever Action Cast Bullet Shoot for the year was held at the Whitehorse Rifle and Pistol Club on Sunday September 22, 2013 with nine shooters turning out for the Geoff Fletcher Memorial competition.

Starting in the morning with three events using lever action guns, the shooters had to hit paper and metal targets placed at various distances between 50 and 150 yards. Another event required each shooter, one at time, to quickly cycle their lever action rifle and place 5 shots into a Charging Bear target that was rapidly moving towards them.

The afternoon was devoted to three events shot at a distance of 200 yards. Putting ten rounds on the paper from three different positions using open sights is a challenge. The three positions included sitting using crossed sticks to support the fore-end of the gun, lying prone and shooting over a log and finally standing off-hand with cross sticks.

The participants were divided into two teams and in addition to their personal aggregate score, each shooter’s score contributed to their team score. Team prizes and individual prizes were awarded for top scores in addition to winning the trophies.
