    2023 Winter - Spring MPL Competition Rules

    This 6 month postal competition is to run between January 2023 and June 2023.

    Most of us shoot our competition targets whenever we find it convenient (or choose to do so), but please continue to mark them up "per month" as always starting with your first 6 targets being dated "January 2023"

    The Muscle Power League Rules have not changed much ever since we started - but we do have a small number of additions, and repeating these rules at the start of each new MPL season is something we have always been asked to do - so here they are again!

    There will be no major changes to the previous rules BUT we no longer supply the targets and we have REDUCED the entry fee from 10 to 5 as most previous entrants already had targets or preferred to buy their own.

    We will continue to run a competition for .177 MPL air rifle. MPL airguns are those that need "Muscle Power" (ie effort) to cock them and include spring powered and single stroke pneumatic airguns.

    We are also adding some competitions for .177 PCP powered airguns. CO2 powered airguns can also be entered in the PCP competitions as both use compressed gas and shoot in a similar manner.

    This time we will also be giving the 10 metre Supported Air Pistol shooters a chance to enter


    ALL 2022 MPL Competitions are to be shot with OPEN SIGHTS or DIOPTER SIGHTS (on rifles) ONLY.

    The 10 metre supported air pistol competition has been added to the MPL this season as we know that it has at last gained some interest here in the UK.

    Maybe some of the Norwich Airgun Club may like to enter as they are currently shooting this discipline over their own club ranges and so are already well set-up for the competition?
