Rimfire

 


So called because the firing mechanism of the rifle strikes the rim of cartridge as opposed to the centre of it, rimfire shooting involves the firing of live .22 calibre ammunition and at Keighley falls into the categories of Prone match shooting, Carbine shooting and Benchrest as well and Veteran and Classic events using old rifles.

























Keighley is one of the few clubs in the Yorkshire area that has it’s own 100 yard outdoor range so is an excellent place for those who wish to move on to compete at a high level.


The Rimfire section is very active with teams and individuals competing at local, regional and nation level plus a wealth of experience and coaching for those who are completely new to the sport.
