Petone Rifle Club

Welcome to Petone Rifle Club. We are a friendly club of enthusiasts who enjoy the challenge of long range rifle shooting from 300 to 1,000 yards. Based at Trentham, we shoot outdoors during September to April from the prone position (lying on the ground). We promote the community benefits of Target and F Class rifle shooting to all Hutt Valley and Wellington residents, by providing a pathway for personal development and the opportunity to succeed at club, national and international level.

Precision rifle and hunter class we introduce shooters to the skills applicable to long range field shooting: ammo load development, wind picking, optimising performance of off-the-shelf rifle systems. For our classic 303 rifle shooting we teach the forgotten art of rifle bedding, load development and how to keep 100 year old rifles operational. All members, regardless of their shooting class, enjoy a heap of fun within the controlled environment of the Seddon Rifle Range.
