Bromyard Rifle Club can offer plenty of opportunities to shoot the different aspects of .22 Prone Target Shooting. We have an indoor range at 20 yards with four firing points and an outdoor range allowing shooting at 50metres with 18 firing points and 100 yards with 17 firing points. The outdoor ranges are also used by other local clubs and you can get in touch for further information.
