Far from the preserve of beginners however, Benchrest is a competitive discipline in its own right. With all movement eliminated, shot release must be perfect, attention given to the smallest details and when outdoors, wind-reading becomes more inportant than ever as competitors hunt for the smallest scoring rings.
