Bianchi Amendments

One for Bianchi shooters to note…

Currently the Bianchi match is only shot at the Phoenix and the Nationals. For the last few years the ‘standard’ range set up on Stickledown Butt Zero has been Barricades, Mover, Plates and the Practical match. The Plates and Practical match were squeezed in on the right hand side of Butt Zero at the speed steels end of the range. The pedantic may well appreciate it was a modified version of the Practical match being shot – distances of 10, 15, 20 and 25m – (as opposed to 10, 15 25 and 50m) were utilized to coincide with the plates distances and allow Plates and Practical to be shot at the same time.

For various reasons, after the Phoenix Meeting in 2022, it was decided to move the Practical Match to the Barricades range on the left hand side of butt zero. Anyone who shot Bianchi at the Nationals 2022 would have noticed this. The modified Practical Match distances of 10, 15, 20 and 25m were kept however these distances do not align with the Barricade match distances of 10, 15, 25 and 35m.

Although the matches are separate parts of the overall Bianchi competition the decision has been taken to align the distances of the Barricade and Practical parts to allow for a more efficient running of the range. Timings for the 10, 15 and 25m stages will be as documented for the appropriate distances. The 35m distance for Practical is new therefore will be modified to suit.

For the 35m practical stage the CoF and timings will be:

Stage 4   35m   

  • 6 seconds – 1 shot on each target
  • 8 sec – 2 shots on each target
  • 10 secs – 3 shots on each target

This will be documented in the 2023 GR&P handbook.
