You can try shooting either of the 100/200 yard benchrest discipines, Group, Score, or BOTH. Shooting Group entails trying to put all five shots through the same hole-or nearly so. A well-tuned competition rifle will be able to put five shots into .150” or less, measured center to center of the two widest shots. Many targets can be covered by a dime with lots of room to spare. The Score discipline requires equally accurate rifles, but the object for that game is to hit five separate bullseyes. A perfect target would be 50-5x's. IBS also shoots Long Range matches at both 600, and 1000 yards. The Long Range discipline is scored for both Group and Score.
