Big game rifle is a rifle shooting discipline that aims to foster the collection, preservation and use of vintage and modern classic large-calibre big-game rifles, particularly those of British origin, including black powder and early Nitro cartridge firearms. The matches aim to simulate field-shooting conditions to improve the shooter’s firearm skills in the pursuit of large and dangerous game. To replicate real field conditions, no slings or rests are used in competition. Competitors will also be penalised for using scope sights. Two speed events, ‘charging animal’ and ‘special snap’, have been introduced because big-game rifles were traditionally used in tight, dangerous situations.
