Round 5 GB F Class League. Diggle ranges 2016


Alan Baldry wins Round 5 of the GB Nationals F Class FTR league shoot. Well done Alan. Great shooting....

The Northern F-class Championships “Two dry days at Diggle”

The UK’s oldest F-class match, the Northern Championships predates the National League by several years, now fully incorporated into the League, it constitutes round five and marks the point in the season when you can start to drop your poorest score and focus on your four best scores to count.

We had a good healthy entry of 71 shooters (1 dropped out), the mix was: 38% F/O and 62% F/TR, showing how F/TR continues to grow apace. We had six ladies shooting this time, the most ever. All except Yvonne Wilcock were shooting F/TR – Yvonne was using a Savage 6.5/284 in F/O. Our farthest-travelled competitor was Sue Le Cheminant all the way from Jersey.

Bisley Round 4. The Long Range Challenge

“The Long Range Challenge: aiming at a CD over two-thirds of a mile away”

It was a record-setting and record-breaking weekend at the Long Range Challenge.
Conditions were not particularly conducive to achieving record scores, yet several were established, it is indicative of how standards keep driving higher and higher.

Stuart Anselm (below) and your humble scribe prevailed to take the gold and the glory back north with us. Stuart was using one of the new Victrix rifles and it seems to have elevated his performance to a new, higher plane, I think we’ll be seeing more of these Italian rifles on the firing points in future.


At our AGM the 1,200yds stage was re-instated into the Long Range Challenge, there were some reservations expressed, but in the end they proved groundless as the match was sold out within one week of entries going live online - all 78 places were snapped up. It was the first time a Bisley match had been put online, and it augers well for the future. Here are just some of the highlights from the match.

Diggle Ranges Round 3- 2016

The Pennine Challenge.

“The deluge at Diggle”

The Pennine Challenge was one of our wettest ever League Matches; the poor, sodden FTR guys must have felt like they were in the GBFCA sub-aqua section.

Low pressure fronts struggled to climb up over the Pennine hills and consequently dumped all their rain on Diggle for much of Saturday morning, it was frankly horrible, the only consolation being that the shooters who performed well in those conditions can take a lot of pride in knowing that they can cope with anything.


You would expect the locals to be accustomed to such foul weather, yet it was the Southerners who showed the Northerners a thing or two about shooting in the rain – both FTR and FO winners were from the far south; Simon Gambling and David Kent, congratulations to the pair of them.

We had an excellent turn-out for the match – all 72 spaces were snapped up in 72 hours, anybody who left it late was disappointed. In fact, every League match this year has filled up fast and most of them have been over-subscribed, it looks like being a bumper year.

Blair Atholl. Rd 2. The Scottish Championships

Robert and Elena – the big winners at Blair...

Blair Atholl lived up to its fierce reputation as being one of the toughest ranges in the world, but Robert Thomson and Elena Davis prevailed over all to come out on top as the new Scottish Champions.

Blair Atholl certainly gave everyone a tough time of it – the wind was not very strong all weekend, but there were frequent, fast changes of deceptive strength.
It was those changes that caught everyone out – well, everyone except Robert and Elena.

The second League match of the 2016 season got off to a good start with all except one space being taken, as it happens that space was filled, but more on that later.
FTR dominated again with 30 shooters vs the FO with 18, showing that FTR is enjoying steady growth while FO seems to be languishing somewhat.

Official GB F Class Shooting Records for both F Open & F/TR

Now that we have settled on the Palma type target with the half MOA V bull, I thought it might be a good idea to establish some GB F Class records before we get too far down the road and scores are lost in time.  Also, the Americans are keen on records and it might be interesting to see how we compare.

The categories would be distances of 800, 900 and 1000 yards.  We would have to have separate records for 15 and 20 shots to count.  Only records set in official GB League comps. would count of course.  We can include records for the Open Class and F/TR.
