Calling all BR Shooters!
Rosebud Silhouette & Benchrest Club is pleased to announce it is going ahead with the Stampede Shootout scheduled for July 10th and 11th,  with a practice day on the Friday July 9th. Alberta is in stage 2 of our Covid re-opening plan with all restrictions expected to be lifted around June 30th.

This will be a BRSC sanctioned group shoot. Memberships can be purchased at the range if you need one. The Stampede Shootout will be 4-Gun contest. That is: we will shoot all 4 BR classes in this event, all aggregates will be at 100 yards over the two days. Saturday will be Sporter and LV, and Sunday will be HV and Unl. (5-shot). The Champion will be the lowest in the combined 4-Gun Grand Aggregate, with individual class aggregates awarded as well. Match Fee is $80 for the weekend.

Camping is allowed and those looking to camp at the range should contact me in advance to make arrangements. This is dry camping with no amenities. Anyone looking for hotel recommendations please contact me.

Loading is in the clubhouse where we have space for about 30 shooters and their reloading equipment. 

There will be a BBQ on the Saturday after the shooting is completed. The club will supply the side dishes and soft drinks. The shooters should bring their own steaks, burgers etc to grill.

Friday practice day is available for everyone. Out of towners and non-members let me know in advance if you plan to participate in this so we can arrange access on the Friday.

If anybody need directions try this link: or

It is very helpful for us to know in advance who all is coming to this shoot, to arrange helpers and support to make the match run smoothly To that end please let me know if you are attending, unless we have communicated already.

Last thought, I will have an area set up for a swap meet, so feel free to bring items you wish to display for sale.

Any questions please send them through to

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Equipment List


The Heavy Iron is complete. 10 adventurous souls came out to play. The big winner is Hugh Williamson with a combined aggregate of .3187 for the weekend. Pretty amazing considering it was windy enough to blow things off the bench that weren't held down!

Note Hugh targets for 100 yds Unl 5 shot are going to the record committee for consideration of a BRSC record. This is also a Rosebud Range Record.

I also owe Tyler a screamer certificate for his 10 shot .347 Very impressive considering the conditions.

Next shoot is the Stampede Shootout July 10/11 which is a 4-Gun sporter/LV/HV/Unl all shot at 100 yards. I hope to see everyone there.

Mark, thanks for letting us I know, I was wondering if we would still be going to BC. Hard to imagine we are in our second summer of cancelled matches, but here we are.

Welcome to the forum. Let us know how we can help push you down the slippery slope. Just kidding! A great group of shooters more than happy to help. If you have questions, just ask.


Official word has come down, there will be no 2021 World Championship. It has been re-scheduled to 2023 and it will be in South Africa. As per previous years protocols, I will ask for shooters to declare their interest in qualifying for this event in January of 2022, with qualifying shoots taking place throughout 2022.

For clarity, I expect it will "stand" forever. There hasn't been a registered match where you shoot the hunter class rifles at a group target in probably 25 years or more! Those "score rifles shot for group" records were retired a few years ago, since they hadn't been contested in so long, and they are not a recognized class anywhere else, it was a Namaka specific thing as far as I know.

Until Dwayne Cyr came along and hosted a registered score shoot at Kenora in 2020, BRSC had not had a registered score shoot in 15 years. Kudos to Dwayne for organizing that shoot, and hopefully the start of the return of registered score shoots in the BRSC.

It has been confirmed by the NBRSA record committee that Dave Brooks shot an NBRSA World Record in Sporter Class at 300 yds, a .2154" aggregate! Remarkable to say the least.

All, I just wanted to let folks know that Dave Brooks shot a potential NBRSA World Record at a Benchrest Match last weekend. Dave was using an HWP barrel when he shot a .2159" aggregate at 300 yards. This is under the existing record and will be sent to the NBRSA record committee for official measurement, and hopefully confirmation of a new record. Of note, Dave also shot an individual group at 300 yards that measured .291".

Complete results here:

Congratulations Dave!

Equipment List

The Alberta Provincials is in the bag. Congratulations go out to Mark Dumont who took time out of his busy schedule to drive in from BC and lay a beat down on the all the locals from Rosebud! Well done Mark! Thanks to the helpers and the Rosebud Club for making it happen. See everyone in 2021.

Reminder to everyone our last BRSC sanctioned shoot at Rosebud in 2020, will be the Alberta Provincials on Sept 12/13. We will shoot LV 100 Saturday morning and HV 100 Saturday afternoon.
