Second stop, 29th October 2014


We started this day at the legendary shooting ranges at Bisley – the very cradle of competition shooting, dating back more than 140 years. The challenge today was shooting at the traditional 1,100 yard range (App. 1000 meters) with the new standard of hunting scopes – the impressive ZEISS VICTORY V8 2.5-20×56 scope. It’s impressive to see that you can use a hunting rifle for  stalking and 1000 meters shooting the same time. Respecting the long tradition of Bisley all the writers also got the opportunity to try out the traditional peep-sighted Bisley rifle – no scope, only iron sights. It was amazing to figure out the difference of hundred years technological development – comparing the Bisley rifle with our modern and precise rifle scopes.
