Crosse Creek Rifle and Pistol Club

Swiss Rifle Match (unofficial)


We aren't officially recognized by the Swiss government so you won't get a medal at our match but, we try to keep to the official match program.

Swiss rifles are encouraged, but not required.  Any of the VMBAR/VMSAR rifles we allow in our vintage military matches can be used. Click Here for more info.

All shooting is done from the prone position and targets are placed at 300 yds.  There will be both slow fire and rapid fire strings.  We will fire sighters to get everyone a working 300 yd zero before we begin firing for record.

Most of the strings are fired using an impromptu sort of rest.  You should bring a rucksack, backpack, or something to use for the rested position.  You may not use mechanical bench rests.  You can stuff the bag with whatever you like.

All 3 Swiss matches combined will require 65 - 70 rounds (more if you have difficulty getting the 300 yd zero.)  Time permitting, we may double up and repeat all 3 matches again, so bring ammo for a repeat if you like. (about 130-140 total rounds estimated.)  If we double up the matches, you may shoot a different rifle the second time.

We will be using a couple of vehicles to make the runs for scoring, so you won't be worn out from the 600 yd hikes.

*** We are happy to accommodate shooters with physical limitations that prevent shooting from the specified positions. We will permit you to shoot from various bench positions that will approximate the difficulty of the regular positions.
