The Victorian Rifleman Medal goes to anyone
who shoots a Provisional match with a Victorian era rifle in 2007. Final score is not relevant, only that the match is shoot with a type of rifle used by Queen Victoria's Troops.
If 10 people shoot Martini's in the provisional I will send ten medals. You folks will have to find the appropiate ribbon in your country colors to attach.

This is the match.
THE BASIC PROVINCIAL MATCH
13 rounds at 100 yards fired on the 50 meter UIT Slow fire Pistol Target B-17. Best ten hits count. Any position, sling may be used. No rests. Use any rifle of a type as originally used by Queen Victoria’s Armies during her reign using black powder. .303 only may be shot with Smokeless powder.
I do ask that the score of each shooter be posted here. We don't necessarily need the shoters name, but would like to have the rifle type and score.
The purpose is to encourage shooters around the world to get together and shoot their rifles. By recording the scores and entering them into the data base I have started we are able to get some standard of expection. We can see what these rifles actually capable of doing.
