Welcome to the Montana Northwest 1000 Yard Benchrest Club website. In January 2015 our club decided to join the International Benchrest Shooters. This involved new rules and procedures that every member needs to know and a link is provided for the IBS and the IBS rules in the menu above. This is the place to get all of the updates and schedules for the events, as well as the results and photos.
The history behind our Club is that in 1996 the Whitefish, Montana Rifle and Pistol Club formed an affiliation with the Williamsport, PA., Original 1000 Yard Benchrest Club in order to conduct 1000 Yard Matches. Early in 1998 the Northwest 1000 Yard Benchrest Association was formed. All matches are currently held at the Deep Creek Rifle Range in Missoula, Montana. The Club members are continually updating the range and it is now one of the best long distance ranges in the country. We invite all 1000 yard shooters to come and join us in using this great range and joining the Northwest 1000 Yard Club. We have some good competitions as well as some of the best shooters in the world. The range is located outside of Missoula, Montana. Please contact Bill Brown for additional info. 406-880-0203
