The Rosebud club will host the Stampede Shootout this coming July 11,12. This will be a unique format as we will shoot all 4 BR classes at 100 yards over the two days. Saturday will be Sporter and LV at 100 yards, and Sunday will be HV and Unl. (5-shot).

Camping is allowed and those looking to camp at the range should contact me in advance to make arrangements. Anyone looking for hotel recommendations please contact me.

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

Friday practice day is available for the out of town shooters, just let me know in advance if you need access on the Friday.

Any questions please send them through to

See everyone there!

We had 9 hardy souls turnout for the Heavy Iron Championship in 2020. Bit of rain and a lot of wind made things challenging for all. Not all shooters participated in all aggs so we had 6 in the final Championship standings. Thanks to the Alexander who ran targets and to Keith who did the scoring. Looking forward to seeing everyone in July at the Stampede Shootout

Gang we are only 1 week away from the Heavy Iron shoot at Rosebud. This will be an Unlimited Class shoot at 100 and 200 yards. Saturday morning will be be 5 shot at 100 yards, Saturday afternoon will be 10 shot at 100 yards. Sunday morning will be 10 shot at 200 yards and the afternoon will be 5 shot at 200 yards.

You don't need a rail gun to participate, bring a bag gun and have at 'er. The range will be open to practice on Friday as well.

If I haven't spoken to you already please contact me to let me know yo are ocming, that way I can have the appropriate number of helpers on hand.

It is with profound sadness I am letting everyone know that Dan Opel passed away yesterday. Dan was a friend to shooters far and wide. He was a mentor to many and one of the guys you could always count on to be at a match and support anyone who needed help in this game. Dan was the President of the BRSC and a strong supporter of the Canadian World Team. So many fond memories it is difficult to know where to start. We are sure to miss him. Please keep his wonderful wife Sue in your thoughts and prayers.

It should be noted that Hugh Williamson had a great shoot at the Cactus Classic earlier this year, winning the HV 200 with a .1722" aggregate and winning the HV Grand Aggregate with a .1839". Well done Hugh!

To those wondering about the status of events at Rosebud, the Province is allowing outdoor gatherings of up to 50 people provided social distancing guidelines are observed. To that end, I am pleased to announce Rosebud will proceed with the match schedule as planned. I look forward to seeing everyone starting at the June 13/14 Heavy Iron shoot. If there are any questions, contact me at

We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to immediately scrap his government

Here is a link to a clip shot at Rosebud. Produced by the CCFR. Thanks to Dwayne C for the link.

Shooters we have had our first event with results that people want to count towards their qualifying efforts.

Results are attached. Could be an interesting year as many of the larger matches have been cancelled or postponed. Every match will probably count  going forward not just the big ones.

Sorry about the wide file!

Just received a note from Stan W. who just received an HWP barrel and sent the attached picture of a target he just shot. Saying it had been in the 1's then dipped in to the zeros. Conditions were breezy.Thanks Stan.
