With regard to the ongoing target situation and the ELEY Competition, we would encourage everyone to enter the ELEY Competition as normal.
Shooting dates for the first round will be amended for those disciplines where targetry is not currently authorised for National Competition use, as the targets become available.
In those Competitions where targetry is authorised for use i.e. Comp B (Prone Rifle) and Comp G (10m Air Pistol), the normal published shooting dates should be used.
The following targets were cleared for use in NSRA National competitions on the 14th November 2018:
PL14/06 - 18
2510 B.M./89 - 18
Air 4/89 - 18
MM 12 C 1996 - 18
MM 12 C 1996
2510 B.M./89 (either purchased after 20th September 2018 or exchanged).
What follows is an update on the current position with Winter Competitions and Targets as of 14th November 2018.
All NSRA targets are being investigated and we are dealing with them in priority order. Starting with the 2510 B.M./89 target that highlighted the problem, NSRA staff have been working hard with Sykes to correct their printing issues for this and other targets.
We have found errors in the printing of NSRA targets and are taking steps to rectify them.
Initially, a fault was found on the 2510BM/89 (25 yard 10 bull) targets. However, having looked at other targets we supply, it came to our attention that there are more targets affected.
