|Air Rifle Field Target||
Air Rifle Field Target is a challenging competition that adds some real life hunting skills to competitive shooting. The match takes place in the woods and requires moving from target to target. The targets are a knock down steel, with a small kill zone. The kill zones vary from 1-1/2" to 3/8". Distances vary from 10 yards to 55 yards. Any pellet gun is acceptable for this match, however there is a limit to 20 ft-lbs energy at the muzzle. Most shooters use .177 calibler, but .20 and .22 will also work well. The trajectory, wind, and range determination make this a very challenging shoot.
The typical match is either 40, 50, or 60 shots.
