  • Shooting in the swiss Alps

    Thought Id share this here with everyone as its great to see some long range shooting from Europe.

    This if from one our of Club directors from Alpine precision rifle club, who is working at the moment in switzerland.

    Here's an album of pics from a range shoot I went to at a Swiss Army base up in the mountains at a place called Wichlen.

    Range to target was 1km (953m - 1008m).[email protected]/sets/72157635002868645

    The rifle was a locally made unit in .50 BMG with a 17.5 inch barrel.

    A couple of times in the morning, we had to cease firing because the clouds wafted in and obscured the target. Our next visit to the range likely early next year sometime will be on the other side of the valley floor, with targets ranging from 300m out to 1.8km.

    One guy had set up an electronic target unit, but most of us were using falling popper, hanging plate, balloon etc type targets stuck up on the target area just visible in some of the pics on the left.

    some great pictures of the alps, rifles, also some videos to watch, enjoy.

    regards Ed
