CR&PC disciplines include: .22 small-bore target rifle, Lightweight Sport Rifle (LSR), 3-Position and Benchrest.

Please note we cannot allow the public on our ranges unless we hold official visitors’ days. We do not offer ‘taster’ sessions, sighting-in facilities, pay-as-you-go shooting or parties.

With the support of the Local Authority, CR&PC has been able to develop the only outdoor 50m and 100yd shooting ranges in the county, offering shooters an unrivalled experience of shooting in various weather conditions.

The Club plays host to regular shoulder-shoulder matches between Dauntsey School and Marlborough College, Cheltenham College and Bradfield College. In previous years Lackham College & University Centre has used our range for their Gamekeeper training, and Calne Scouts.  Wiltshire County Shooting Association has in the past held their annual Open Shoots at Patterdown ranges. CR&PC also host the Upper South West Regional Training Squad.

Open Prize Meeting

Tuesday, 28 January 2020

We would like to thank all those who entered the Prone Match Rifle Open Prize Meeting on Sunday 12 January. We think the trickest conditions were navigating the car park and the mud; the shooting conditions were easier in comparison!

Congratulations to the 'winners' of competitions. We hope to see you return for the challenge again at our Open Shoot in May (details will be on the Club Events Calendar & Competiton Shoots page from March onwards).

We are delighted to announce that Eley has kindly agreed to sponsor the Prizes at the Prize Meeting in May (and the LSR Open Shoot in June).

In the meantime, the results for the January Open Shoot can be found on the file attachment below.
