SSAA 3 Positional & Field Rifle Rulebook
SCOPED 3 POSITIONAL
Field Rifle and Scoped 3-Positional have been around since 1970 and have a large following at SSAA clubs throughout Australia. Field Rifle is a match designed around the most commonly utilised hunting positions simulated under rifle range conditions. Scoped 3-Positional is a precision match which is more target orientated and more testing of the shooter’s ability. These two matches are contested in both Rimfire & Centrefire calibers. The Scoped 3 Positional State Championships and National Championships are made up of the these two events shot with both calibres giving a Four Gun result; 3 Positional Rimfire, 3 Positional Centrefire, Field Rifle Rimfire & Field Rifle Centrefire combined scores. There are awards for each grade in each match as well as two gun awards; 3 Positional Two Gun = 3 Positional Rimfire & 3 Positional Centrefire combined scores and Field Rifle Two Gun = Field Rifle Rimfire & Field Rifle Centrefire combined scores. The Champion is the shooter with the highest Four Gun aggregate. There is also a State & National Hall of Fame calculated by the number of events and positions won at a State or National Championship as well as records for Club, State, National and Australian Open for all positions, Two & Four Gun aggregates and juniors also. With the addition of the NRA match and Air Rifle the National Championships is now a 7 event Championship run over 6 days, the winner is always going to be the shooter who takes out the traditional 4 gun championship, however, to qualify for the international team that competes in the United States every two years for the NRA National Matches held at Camp Perry in Port Clinton, Ohio and in either Brisbane or New Zealand every other year for the Pacific Regional Championships, you must compete and make the top 4 for the USA and the top 6 for the Pacific Regionals in the 5 gun event which is the traditional four gun plus the NRA 3×40 Anysight Conventional Position match. If you are at the top of the game and excel in all 7 events then there is the 7 gun award and also National and Australian Records for every match, position and championship.
