This is the traditional category of shooting, which uses military calibres, open sights and a sling to support the rifle in the prone shooting position. This discipline is shot from club level to state and national levels, it is also shot in the Commonwealth Games.
Allowed calibres are .308 Winchester and .223 Remington. There are restrictions on rifle weight, projectiles, trigger weight, sight details, and many other aspects such as jackets and mats.
The target rifle category is more of a test of the basic shooting skills than F Class. To succeed at the top level requires a very steady hold and excellent visual acuity.
