Welcome to the Oxford University Rifle Club (OURC)

Oxford University Rifle Club (OURC) is formed primarily of students from Oxford University. We compete in both small-bore and full-bore (target & match rifle) classes. If you would like to join, please email us by clicking the button below. You can also learn a lot from browsing this site!
One of the disciplines you can shoot in with OURC is small-bore. This is performed with a small-bore target rifle over a (usually indoor) range of 25 yards. Small-bore rifles shoot a .22 inch diameter bullet and are single shot, breech loading rifles. Most of the shooting we do is prone (i.e. laying down).
Each ‘detail’ involves shooting a 10 target card. A perfect score is 100.
