Hedland Sporting Shooters Club held its ninth field rifle event for 2018 last Sunday, which includes rimfire and centrefire disciplines.

Again, the weather started out calm before gusting to more than 30km/h later in the morning, making it challenging for competitors to stand steady and shoot good scores.

For the rimfire event, Chris Lefroy continued his dominance and shot a score of 334.1 to take out first place.

Philip Murray took out second place with a score of 297 and hot on his heels was Jason Reed with a score of 294.3.
