Smallbore Rifle

What is the Smallbore Rifle course?

In the Smallbore Qualification Course, shooters develop smallbore rifle, 3-position and prone shooting skills. The prone qualification program is designed to develop prone skills, first indoors at 50 feet, and then outdoors at 100 yards. The prone course culminates by having the shooter fire a Dewar Course (50 yards and 100 yards) to earn the 9th Bar, Expert, and Distinguished Expert ratings. The Dewar Course is the same course of fire that is used at the National Championships held at Camp Perry.
