I should have taken some pics to show how interesting the types of rifles now being used in these competitions have become. These include:
Anschutz, Older 54 type actions, 1710,1712, 1761, 1408, 1907 et al..
Walther KKJ
Many variations of CZ including the 457
Many variations of Ruger 10/22's from factory, to nothing of the original that has not been replaced bar the action housing.
Lithgow
And others.
Many different replacement stocks including MDT, McMIllan,etc..
The different disciplines are restricted to specific total weights including 8.5 lb for Factory Sporters, 10.5 lb for Fields Sporters and the variations on Light and heavy Bench rest rifles.

The next one of these competitions will be held at the ECSC Range in Roundwood on Sat/ Sunday, the 14th/15th August. These are open competitions and you do not have to be a member of a club to take part.

The Match 54 action — a staple of prone and bench rest shooters the island over! Where I am, 99% of those who shoot bench with a sporter do so with a CZ — they're hard to beat as far as sporters go. Although, I don't see so many Walthers KKs in the north here. I'm especially intrigued about the custom 10/22s and the aftermarket stocks, I haven't come across much of that at all. It's interesting to read about the different bits of kit you're seeing on the range, thank you for the post!

I see that BRC restricts shooters to using subsonic ammo — would this be common?

The East Coast Shooting Club also restricts the 50/100 metre rifle range to the use of sub sonic ammo. Our pistol range is designed for any ammo up to 45 calibre. The 10/22's feature a lot because of the popularity of the Gallery Rifle disciplines, many of which have a "time" element which dictates the need for a semi auto action.

Sounds like there was a nice diversity of guns shooting there.

I'd love to go to the next one but I am away that weekend unfortunately! Are all the NASRPC competitions open to shooters who have no club or is this just an ECSC thing?

All NASRPC shoots are open shoots. Anyone who can show a valid license and/or insurance(depending on the host club) can take part.

Cool. I think I will go to one in the future so.
