'S' Class

'S' Class web site


'S' Class Competition held at Cawdor


'S' Class came about as a result of a shooting forum discussion back in 2013 about how some shootingcompetitions had become an "Arms Race" and the lack of competitions for shooters with sporting rifles. Out of this discussion S or Sporting Class was born and is basically a desire to return 'Scoped' competition shooting to a simpler level without the need for heavy weight long barrelled rifles and is aimed at Hunters & Club Shooters who wish to compete actively against like-minded shooters.

At the most basic level it is a lightweight rifle class of shooting and in an ideal situation a competitor would walk to the firing point with a rifle in a slip and a couple of ammunition boxes in his pocket.
