Virginia 1,000yd Benchrest Club

IBS Meeting News about Va. Club




In 2012, a total of 156 shooters earned points in 1000 yard matches. There were a total of 177 days of competition for IBS long range in the USA in 2012. Average attendance at long range matches is 30 shooters.

And if you think that the competition is tough at our Va. 1000 club matches, you are correct. Of the top 25 IBS Long Range shooters, 18 competed regulary at the Virginia 1000 Yard Benchrest Club matches in 2012. WOW!

1000 yard nationals for 2013 will be held at Yukon in Missouri.

Precision Shooting magazine is no longer being published. The IBS Board is working with AccurateShooter.com to become the publishing site for current IBS news, this is not yet fully defined and agreed, but it has great promise to raise awareness and interest in all IBS shooting disciplines. The IBS web site will continue to be the source for match results, records, schedules, and all information that is now on the IBS site. .
