Västerås Frivilliga Skarpskytteförening would like to invite you to the 3rd annual Västerås Steel Challenge.
The match will take place at Stockkumla Skyttecenter, Västerås, Sweden ( Approx 15 min. from central Västerås) and this is a perfect match for those of you who are looking to get in to this type of shooting, maximum distance will be 515 meters so even a .223 will get the job done! It will be both fun for new shooters and challenging for the experienced ones.

Match fee: 850 sek, of which 150 sek will be paid on site when you arrive(cash or card), and no refunds of the initial 700 sek unless match is canceled.

Registration starts: Sunday, January 6th 2019 at 20:00 CET.

Match info

12-17 stages.

Approx 120-180 rounds – the exact number will decided and released closer to match date.

60 slots initially, will try to expand to 70+.

Brief start: Saturday, April 6 07:15 CET.
Match start: Saturday, April 6, 08:00 CET.

Food: The Kitchen will be open thru the weekend and have for example a 180 gram prime rib burger for the price of 45 sek(50 sek with a soft drink), sandwiches, coffee, sodas and they will offer proper dinner “buffet” on sunday after the match at at very reasonable price while we count the points. Cash or credit card is fine.
Lodging: We will only have space for about 20-25 people with gear and reserve that for those who ABSOLUTELY need it, the rest of you we recommend to look in to sites such as Airbnb if you would like something comfortable but cannot motivate the cost of staying at a hotel.
Skyttekort: Svenska skyttar kommer att behöva gevärsskyttekortet och en giltig tävlingslicens, har man inte detta så går det att lösa på plats under fredagen efter kl 18, mer info och exakt tid för examinering kommer närmare in på matchen, se till att klicka i när ni anmäler er!


Allowed equipment: Whatever you can think of bringing, however maximum of 2 bags and a backpack per stage, tripods/shooting sticks are allowed.
All gear is allowed unless stage description says otherwise!

Max 7.62 mm projectile diameter and no magnums (exceptions can be made, just ask and state your intended load, a magnum at non magnum speed is usually fine)
Max v0: 950m/s ( however, you will not gain ANYTHING from running a hot load at this match, quite the opposite is recommended)

You can use Semi-auto or bolt action, only match ammo in the form of HP or plastic tip is allowed but Swedish military personnel are allowed to use issued FMJ ammunition along with their issued weapon.


Known and perhaps unknown distance targets, might be a good idea to get a Truemiller from galgasen@gmail.com and get yourself a VRS discount on it, you’re gonna need it (or something similar at least).

Max distance: 515m.

Area: Shooting ranges and big forest clearing.

Temperature: Anywhere from -6C to +15C.
