Welcome to the Rosedale Rifle Range website
This is the official website of the Rosedale Rifle Range, which is situated near the town of Rosedale on the Princes Highway 180 km east of Melbourne, Australia. The Range is managed by Rosedale Rifle Clubs Inc. made up of members from two National Rifle Association affiliated clubs, Sale Rifle Club and Stratford-Maffra Rifle Club.

The purpose of this site is to provide information for intending visitors to this great rifle range, and for people who might be considering joining one of our two Rifle Clubs. Target shooting is a very challenging and enjoyable sport, with a rich history and world-wide participation. It is attractive to all ages, and we welcome both youth and experience - some of the top competitors in our sport are in their seventies.
 
 
Some Information About Our Range
Targets
There are 6 target emplacements, and all standard target sizes are available for all ranges.


Available Ranges
There are raised mounds at 300, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 and the longest range of 1000 yards has a roof over the mound. All distances are used regularly throughout the season. The terrain is flat apart from a slight depression between the 300 yard mound and the targets.


Active Membership
Our resident rifle clubs have about 30 members, and on a normal Saturday at Rosedale we have about 15 shooters, comprising a mixture of Target Rifle (open sights and slings) and F-Class (scope sights and rests). Pictured is Target Rifle shooter Ken Tatterson.


Conditions
Because of the flat terrain, mirage can be severe at the longer ranges, and is used extensively as an indicator of wind changes. An effort has been made to keep adjacent trees to a minimum, which increases the reliability of the flags.
 
Range Clubhouse
The clubhouse was funded and built by local club members in the mid-80s. It has mains power, a well equipped kitchen, toilets and showers, and a large floor area for dining, presentations, meetings and other gatherings.


Camping Area
The area around the clubhouse is sheltered with numerous shade trees. Visitors to our Open Prize Meeting in April are encouraged to bring a caravan or tent and stay overnight on the range. All sites are powered.
Location Map of the Range
From the centre of Melbourne, Rosedale is a 2 hour drive east, down the Princes Highway. Turn right at the roundabout, drive south for 1.8km, then turn left into the Rosedale-Stradbroke Road. Drive along this road to the first corner (about 1.2km) and instead of following the bitumen road around to the right, go straight ahead onto the gravel road, and the Range gateway is about 800 metres further on the right-hand side of the road.

Current Shooting Categories at Rosedale
Target Rifle
This is the traditional category of shooting, which uses military calibres, open (metal) sights, and slings to support the rifle in the prone shooting position. It has the biggest following of any National Rifle Association category, and consequently is very competitive at the top level.

Allowed calibres are .308 Winchester and .223 Remington. There are restrictions on rifle weight, projectiles, trigger weight, sight details, and many other aspects such as jackets and mats.

The target rifle category is more of a test of the basic shooting skills than F Class (below). To succeed at the top level requires a very steady hold, and excellent visual acuity.
Standard F-Class
This relatively new category is restricted to the same basic rifle as for Target Rifle, but allows the addition of telescopic sights, and front and rear rests. It was introduced as an affordable way of continuing to shoot competitively when having difficulty with open sights and/or prone shooting with a sling. However, there is no requirement to serve an apprenticeship in Target Rifle, and a growing number shooters are preferring to start their target shooting in F-Class.

With the aid of scope sight and rests, the emphasis of shooter skill turns mostly to wind-reading ability. It has been well received at Rosedale, and on a normal club saturday, Standard F-Class shooters are usually in the majority.
Open F-Class
This category allows all the advantages of Standard F-Class, and in addition removes most of the restrictions for the rifle. Any calibre up to 8mm is allowable, the rifle weight limit is increased, and the trigger can be much lighter. Consequently, the F-Class Open shooter has a big advantage, particularly at long range (800 to 1000 yards) and in windy conditions.

Because of the expected performance levels in Open F-Class, a different set of targets is normally used, with smaller rings, making maximum scores more difficult to achieve. Currently, there are 3 or 4 regular competitors in Open F-Class at Rosedale.
Other Categories
While the above 3 categories currently comprise all of the regular competitive shooting at Rosedale, we hope this will change over time. There are other types of shooting which are compatible with the facilities, for example Field Class. One recent development is a trial of the international version of F-Class Standard, F/TR.
MCSI SCORING SYSTEM
Because we have a limited number of shooters in some categories, it is difficult to provide a meaningful competition for Saturday scores. A score standardisation system called Mixed Category Score Index (MCSI) has been developed to allow all categories to compete directly against one another. It is a type of handicap, but it applies to the standard of equipment in the shooting category (e.g. Target Rifle, F Class) rather than to the shooter's performance. An earlier version of this system called SPR was used from 2004 to 2006 for various teams and individual competitions. Stratford-Maffra RC is using the MCSI system for its club championship (both handicap and outright). Read more details here.
