Summary

Joshua Millner was 61 years old, having started his shooting career in 1871 and distinguishing himself on the first British Palma team in 1876. Representing the Irish Ulster Rifle Association, he used a match rifle based on a Mannlicher action with a British service barrel and a Blood telescopic sight. He used a British .303 cartridge with a pointed 225-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2,200 feet/second (670.5 mps). Millner shot in the "back position", lying on his back with his feet pointed at the target, knees drawn up and the rifle supported by his feet.
