FAQsWhat is benchrest shooting?
Benchrest shooting is the pinnacle of accuracy and precision in shooting sports. The object of group shooting is to place 5 or 10 shots through the same hole on the target within a fixed time limit, despite the best efforts of wind and human error to the contrary. Score shooting involves trying to hit a half inch bullseye at 100 yards on five separate targets within the time limit.

I don't have a benchrest rifle. Can I compete anyway?
Sure! many IBS shooting events generally have a class just for factory guns, and as long as it doesn't violate the rules, you can shoot it in other classes too.
How can I compete with all of the pros? Won't I look stupid?
