Bench Rest

The .22 calibre bench rest program has been suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check again later for changes.


The centre fire bench rest program has now re-opened to limited numbers of shooters and will follow the proper social distancing and disinfection requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic.



.22 Calibre Bench Rest


NSRG holds bench rest matches using .22 caliber rifles.


Ten shots to score are fired at each of 8 bulls placed at 100 yards, in addition sighting shots may be taken at the sighting bulls at any time. Wind flags are set out. While any one may enter with any .22 rimfire rifle, best results require a heavy barrel target rifle with a good optical sight; the shooter also needs rests for the fore-end and butt of the rifle. There is no prize except the honour of winning.

  • Matches are usually held in Bay 1 of the range at NSRG.
  • Coffee and cookies are provided.
  • Entry fee is $3.00 for NSRG members / $5.00 for non-members.

All are welcome, NSRG members and guests!



Centre Fire Bench Rest


This new bench rest program started in the spring of 2018. The format for the event is "Varmint for Score", which translates to shooting at a 5" target from 100 yards, where the target has concentric scoring circles on it, with the smallest circle being worth 10 points, and the largest circle being worth 5 points. If you would like to participate or want more information send an email to Adam Erickson at atericks@hotmail.com. Indicate in the email the calibre and style (custom bench rest, factory, modified factory) of rifle that that you will be shooting.

  • Matches are usually held in Bay 1 of the range at NSRG.
  • Entry fee is $3.00 for NSRG members / $5.00 for non-members.


All are welcome, both NSRG members and non-NSRG members!
