Benchrest shooting is a sport in which very accurate and precise rifles are shot at paper targets from a rest or bench from a sitting position. Benchrest shooters are notoriously detail-oriented and constantly trying to further the accuracy potential of the rifle through experimentation. The skill in benchrest is trigger control, reading the wind, and preparing your equipment. At KISA rimfire benchrest is conducted at the Salonie range at 50 and 100 yards.

Erik Berggren,the Salonie Creek "Range Master,is going to get a white plastic sign made,with red letters,about 18" wide & 24" tall,that would go on the telephone pole,at the Salonie Creek Gate. It would announce that there are
"Benchrest Matches Every Sunday Evening". Competitors show up about 4:00pm,and start laying their stuff out on the benches between 4:00pm & 4:30,and need to have access to down range at the rifle range section,while the "Pistol Range" remains open. Between 4:30pm & 8:30pm the rifle range,and benches will be used for the "Benchrest Matches",unless it`s raining.
The June`s "Benchrest Rimfire Matches" are going to be held on June 9th. &
the 23rd. of June. The times will be the same,with the rifle range closed at 4:30pm,and unloading of shooting gear,on benches at 4:00pm to 4:30pm.
It will take 20 minutes,to shoot 20 "Record Shots" at 50 yards,with "Unlimited Sighters" to be shot during the 20 minutes,along with the 20 record rounds at 4 record targets,and 1 sighter target at the top. Then the targets are moved to 100 yard line,to shoot 10 record rounds at 2 record targets,for a total of 20 record shots,and unlimited sighters shot at the "Sighter Target" at the top of the 100 yard target,during the 20 minutes of regulation time.
All Rimfire Cartridges are legal to use,including 17 HMR ,17 H II,22 WMR &
22 Long Rifle. There are no limits on the rifles or sights,as any power or magnification is allowed on scopes,or "Peep Sights". If you are going to use "Peep sights" then please use a spotting scope,to track your shots,and not a friends High power scope,that has to swing between targets. Usually it takes about 18X to 20X scope,to see bullet holes at 100 yards. Again rests are unlimited,and there are no limits on rifles. One & Two piece rests are legal,as are rifle weights. Barrel tuners are also allowed.
