Smallbore rifle shooting, as covered by the Carisbrooke Rifle and Pistol Club, involves the use of .22 calibre target rifles firing .22 rimfire ammunition fired at paper or cardboard targets at distances from 20 yards up to 25 yards. The practical skills involved are very similar to those used for both full-bore and air rifle shooting with the main difference being the type of rifle and ammunition used.
