De-leaded backstop

The BSA arranged that the backstop be de-leaded.  This was the first time this author had seen that done in the 30+ years he has been shooting at Blairadam.  Some ball park figures; 2014 F&K averaged 11 attendees, and each would shoot about 34 rounds.  So that would be about 400 rounds, 10 grammes per shot, equals 4000grammes, i.e. 4k.  Next if F&K's 12 shoots is representative of all clubs, then that would be 28kg/per year (over all targets)

2452 (Shawlands) ATC

The silver Wellington bomber is called The Air Gunners Trophy; it was presented by the men of the Air Gunners Association (all their members flew with Bomber Command as Air Gunners) to the Air cadets for competition at their annual Pre-Bisley training Camp. This is the top ten teams, who have an extra week's practice just before Bisley. This year the match was the aggregate of scores on the Wed at 300,500 and 600 yards. We got it by a single point.

The Frankfort Shield is one of the two big team prizes at the ISCRM Meeting at Bisley. One now has to beat nearly 50 ATC teams, all the Army Cadet Force and of course the Navy/Marine cadets. It is the aggregate of a match at 300 and then 500yds. This year there was a three way tie at the top and luckily we had more V's then the other two teams.

The larger is 308-Winchester [7.62NATO] with a 155 grain Sierra Match King projectile.  They are very similar balistically. F-open ammuntion is usually 6.5mm and more akin in size to the 308W.
