    African Long Range Hunters Association is having a funshoot on the 29th of March 2014 near Heilbron in the Freestate.

    The shoot takes place on the grounds of Donsveertjie Guesthouse and people attending the shoot can also make use of this guest house for the Friday and/or Saturday night.

    Entry Fees are R150 for ALRHA Members with proof of membership and R180 for non-members. There are limited places available and to book your spot you must pre-register (see entry form below). We will have entries on the morning of the shoot, provided there are still spots available. In this case a R50 surcharge will apply. If you do not pre-register, there is no guarantee that there will be a spot for you.

    The format will be steel gongs ranging from 450m to 1000m and varying in size from 150mm to full IDPA/IPSC Torso sized plates. Shooters will utilize the prone position only. Maximum caliber restriction of .338 apply and no monolithic or bonded bullets are allowed. No other equipment restrictions apply. Entries will be team based consisting of 2 participants, both performing the role of shooter and spotter alternately. If you do not have a team mate, the organizers will provide you with one.

    For more information, you can send an email to ludwig@africanlrhunters.co.za

    Monolithics are very tough on steel, especially the bigger calibers using lightweight monos at very high velocties. We want to limit the damage to the gongs as much as possible and therefore do not allow monos.

    There is definitely the possibility to organize such an event in those parts of the country in the future. ALRHA is finalizing their official Long Range Varmint and Long Range Hunter Competition Formats, which will be more formal than the fun shoot we are doing now. We have both formats coming at 7 June and 24 September in Gauteng this year, but next year we can expand further out towards the Cape.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    There will be 3 stages consisting of 2 targets each which will be on different distances. All relays will complete a stage before moving on to the next stage. Maximum of 5 shots allowed per target. Thus, a total maximum of 30 rounds if utilizing the 5 round maximum on each target. The less rounds you need to get a hit on a target, the higher your score and once you have hit a target, you do not need to shoot any further shots on that target as they will not score. Thus, if you manage first round hits on all 6 your targets, you would only need 6 shots. Add a few rounds for sighters as we will have a 400mm gong at 500m which can be utilized for sighters at any time during the event when at the firing point.

    The stages will be broken up approximately as follows:

    Stage 1:
    1000m: IDPA/IPSC torso target
    850m: IDPA/IPSC torso target


    Stage 2:
    750m: 250mm target
    650m: 200mm target


    Stage 3:
    500m: 150mm target
    400m: 150mm target

    Scoring will be allocated per target as follow:

    1st round hit: 25
    2nd round hit: 20
    3rd round hit: 15
    4th round hit: 10
    5th round hit: 5
    No hits within 5 rounds: 0

    PS: Just a note guys. Bookings and payments with the guesthouse, if you wish to make use of it, is your own responsibility and is not included in the entry fee.
