Round three of the Highland Outdoors NRL22 Precision .22 shooting championship saw the largest entry yet with 18 shooters vying for the best score of the day.

There were the usual 5 different courses of fire using a variety of props and barricades as we’ve come to expect providing a challenging series of stages.

Winner on the day was Andre Mills with a top score of  closely followed by

Of course the Highland Outdoors NRL22 Championship is a championship with each round scoring separately over 6 rounds. Shooters can drop their lowest scoring round with the best 5 scores to count to the final standings. A round win = 20 points with points accrued down to 20th place, 19, 18, 17 etc. So with three rounds now completed its time to look at the overall standings.

Andy Cudworth leads overall with 47 points from Lee Hopgood with 42 and Andre Mills with 40, but with Andre only having competed 2 rounds thus far compared to three each for Andy and Lee he looks to be a strong position going forward.
