SAAM Roupell Cup etc

Can anybody advise me of the correct formats for The Roupell Cup, Para Cup, Fibua Cup and the LSW shoots or direct me to where I might find said info? :?:

^ I've just went through AOSP and it seems I lied, no mention of competition shooting in it! PM me your email and i'll forward what i have got. I'm sure i have a copy of all the current shoots somewhere.

They are all in the pocket shooting book thing (from the people who make the soldiers pocket book), as well as the skill at arms pocket book for marking your points of aim on.

Im a newbie to shooting team and a TA newbie at that so I never got issued the SAA booklet. Will try and get the pocket book you mentioned though. Cheers.

You should try and get an SAA booklet, I was looking at the Skill at arms & pocket book there now and it's a bit vague about the shoots, and there is no FIBUA.

It's hard to remember all the different points of aim from different positions at different ranges, so the SAA booklet is handy when starting out (such as myself).

As far as I can remember, the FIBUA is:

10 rounds in 2 round groups at 100m through window
10 rounds 2 round groups at 75 m kneeling or squatting
10 rounds 2 round groups at 50 m standing (Huns head)
10 rounds at three exposures (2-4-3) at 25m standing (Huns head)

If you need anymore, I can look them up for you.

The format of the roupell is as follows:

Practice 1 (10 rounds)
Begin 100m to the rear of the firing point. On appearance of a target at 100m you have 25 seconds to move to the firing point and engage it. There follows a further 3 targets at 100m.
Next, 1 target at 200m, up on hold (3 rounds)
Finally, 4 targets at 300m

Practice 2 (10 rounds)
From the fire trench, 1 target at 300m followed by 3 groups of 3 targets at 100m,200m and 300m at random.

Practice 3 (10 rounds)
Begin 2m to the rear of the firing point, on appearance of a target move forward and adopt the kneeling supported position and engage 2 targets (coming up randomly at 100, 200 or 300m). Standup and move to start point. Repeat a further 4 times.

Practice 4 (10 rounds)
Engage 5 groups of 2 targets at 100 or 200m from the standing, kneeling or squatting position. Return to the standing alert position after each pair.

Learning the format of the shoot is half the battle!

140 plus for FIBUA.
94-96 for association
120-130 for LSW
120-140 for roupell

the other top scores elude me, but if your in those figures then you have a good chance.

^Not on the parework i hold, could be wrong though, MODS?

Should'nt think it is, civvies turn up at Bisley all the time to watch the shoots, all it takes is some nerd to take notes if they so wished.
