BTSA BULLETIN


March 28, 2021


100/200 Rifle Bay


Temporary Restriction Until Further Notice

Please be advised that due to an unexpected modification of the 2021 renewal of our Range Approvals by the Alberta Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) late this week, we must immediately implement changes to the 100/200m rifle bay.

As of this notification, you may only use up to and including the 308 Template Group on the Rifle Range. 

The full list of RCMP Range Design Calibre Templates is listed HERE.

The 338 Lapua Template Group is no longer an approved category. 

The Board is contacting the CFO office this week to seek a return to our previous approval status. Until such an amendment is received, please refrain from shooting firearms within the 338 Lapua Template Group. We will advise you of any change in status.  

The Board appreciates all members complying with this status change, while we seek clarification and a correction to what we assume is a clerical error.

If you are uncertain, the following calibres fall into this affected Template Group;
