Welcome to this year’s edition of the Västerås Steel challenge.
The match will be focused around positional shooting with few prone stages and designed to test the shooters ability to find solid positions while on the clock.
SWEDISH SHOOTERS PLEASE READ
In order to make sure everyone is properly insured all Swedish shooters will be required to have a “Gevärsskyttekort” and a 2018 competition license.
We’re guessing many shooters already have this in order to shoot in field shooting events, but for those that do not – either contact your own club in advance or we will offer examinations and license enrollment at the match. Examinations will start friday at 15:00 until 21:00.
If you’re not a member of a SFF-club, which you need to be for a competition license, we can arrange that on site as well.
