About Centre Fire Rifle Use at WCRA:

Centre Fire Rifles, other that handgun calibre rifles, can ONLY be used in Range #3 upon the following RULES:

  • ONLY use paper, plastic, or cardboard targets.
  • These centre fire rifles can only be used for “Sighting In” purposes.  When sighting in, the 25-yard section MUST be used first until reasonable accuracy has been achieved and/or confirmed; then, the 100-yard section should be used for final adjustments.
  • ONLY use soft material bullets, like those composed of one or several of the following: lead, copper, polymer, rubber, wax, and soft material coatings.
  • Use common sense to avoid damages to the infrastructure. DO NOT ABUSE THE RANGE.
  • The following is STRICTLY PROHIBITED:
    • The use of “steel-core” bullets.  You can find out if you have steel-core bullets by using a magnet; if the bullet’s projectile stick to it, DON’T USE IT at the WCRA.  We reserve the right to charge violators with up to $5,000 for repairs at the Board of Director’s own discretion.
    • Shooting steel reactive targets, including the Club’s silhouette steel targets.
