Following the success of last year’s Stratstone Super 7 challenge, this year the event has been fine tuned to The Stratstone Ultimate One and will once again be running at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School for four months from 6 October.
The prize this year will be the top of the range, all new Range Rover Long Wheel Base Autobiography. The challenge sees competitors shoot a sequence of 25 driven birds from the RBSS’s legendary 120-ft high tower. The 20 highest scoring individuals on the tower alone will then go through to a final where, if the overall winner shoots 23 or more of the 25 birds, he or she will win the luxury Range Rover to keep forever. Clay Shooter went along to the launch and can confirm that, whilst being spectacularly exciting and daunting, not to mention incredibly tricky, these targets ARE hittable.
The competition is open to all shooters (except those who have compted for their country in the Olympics) and entrants can enter as many times as they want. Entry is £50 for two attempts at ‘The Tower’ which includes a 50-bird warm up. Second entry on the same day is £45.
Each week the individual scoring highest out of 100 will receive a bottle of Bollinger and at the end of the 16 weeks all winners will be invited to the final to have a shoot-off for a Rolex Submariner wristwatch, sponsored by David Duggan Watches of Burlington Arcade. The Really Wild Clothing Comapny will present £1,000 of clothing to the individual who shoots the highest score using a side-by-side in the qualifiers.
The competition ends on Saturday 24 January 2015. For more information and terms and conditions go to www.rbss.co.uk and click on the Ultimate One link. To book call 01491 672900.
