The Royal Berkshire Shooting School’s (RBSS) Handicap Challenge is back for its 16th year and is now in association with Sporting Gun, Shooting Times and Shooting Gazette.

This is a hugely popular clayshooting competition. Entrants will be able to shoot for their preferred magazine and an enticing array of prizes can be won;  a Browning Heritage shotgun, a Laporte trap, Gamebore cartridges, Taittinger champagne and cash prizes. This year, the side-by-side category has been reinstated, the winner of which will receive an overnight stay at Luton Hoo House and a Landrover off-road driving day courtesy of Stratstone.

Dylan Williams, Managing Director of RBSS commented: “We are extremely proud, in our 25th anniversary year and the 16th anniversary of this event, to have our industry’s three most prominent clayshooting magazines come on board with this initiative. I would like to take this opportunity to thank David Stapley at Browning, all at Gamebore, along with all of the other sponsors, as it is their support that ensures that we can host such an event and provide such an entertaining competition for clayshooters of all levels. This ensures great fun and literally the chance for anyone to win.”
