Post your Apr. 2017 50yd. 10 Bull Match Scores here... (Memorial Match - Joe Haller)



Log in to see fewer ads
These matches are in memory of the individual who created them years ago... Joe Haller...

Joe's biography on RFC: "I am a Korean War Veteran. Came back from Korean with a spinal cord injury: (L-1). Get around in a wheelchair. Joined NBRSA in 1955 and NRA in 1956. Shoot in and help organize benchrest & NRA rifle/pistol matches. Coordinate E-Mail Matches."







Please read these rules, and then read them again. I've read them about 25 times, trying to put them together. In a sanctioned match, run by a club, the range officer and other club members running the match will explain rules to you. In this match, you may be shooting alone, or you may have to tell others the rules. You will be range officer, keeping time, target detail - putting up and retrieving targets: Scoring detail and Statistical Officer, posting the scores on RFC.

Read the rules twice. If you are old like me, with a short memory: Better read them three times.



THE RULES for the 10 SHOT MATCH (50yds.) . . . Post your score in this thread, below the rules:

1. DISTANCE: From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 50 yards.
2. AMMUNITION must be Rimfire: Maximum price $7.00 per box of 50. $14.00 per box of 100. We have now included Federal 711b and CCI Quiets as allowable ammunition. See the list of allowable ammo here:

http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=328390

Note: .17 cal rimfire may also be used but this will ammo will automatically place your rifle in the Shoot What You Have class (due to ammo. costs)

For those who want to get serious with match grade ammo, we have the 25 shot matches.

3. TARGET: We use a 10 bull version of the USBR target. The official USBR target has 25 record bulls and 3 sighter bulls.
You can download a copy of the 10 bull target here. Your choice: Green or Black. The 2 sighter bulls are important for checking wind changes. Use them.

Black Target;

Green Target:

http://freepdfhosting.com/f3b22b0987.pdf

4. TIME: A maximum of 15 minutes is allowed to fire sighter shots and one shot at each of the 10 record bulls. No limit on the number of sighter shots.
5. SCORING: You score your own targets, or have someone score for you. These matches are run on the honor system.
Look here at the graphics that show how to score the USBR target:


http://usbr.benchrest.net/scoretarget1.htm


If you don't have a scoring plug, get one. The scoring plug will make scoring the target not only easier, but will usually get you a couple of extra points!

6) Three Classifications: Rookie, Marksman and Expert...
Everyone starts out as a Rookie classification and works their way up the 'ladder' based on posted scores for record. Once you have achieved Marksman or Expert Classification you will not lose that classification.

Classes:

'Rookie' - can shoot 'unlimited' practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot four (4) official scoring targets and post one (1) for record for the month.

'Marksman' can shoot a maximum of 10 practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot two (2) official scoring targets and post one (1) for record for the month.

'Expert' can shoot a maximum of 4 practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot one (1) official scoring target and post one (1) for record for the month.



Required scores:

Rookie - (0-0X to 96-9X) qualification.

Marksman - (97-0X to 99-9X) qualification with three aggregate scores to qualify.

Expert - (100-0X to 100-10X) qualification with three aggregate scores to qualify.


Simply, this setup allows true 'Rookie' marksmen to have as much bench time as they want/need and puts them under pressure to improve their marksmanship skills to a significant degree.

Once the Rookie has submitted three (3) qualifying scores representative of the above scoring classifications he will have earned his Marksman or Expert classification respectively. Qualifying scores do not have to be posted in consecutive months.

Official Attempts for score should be declared prior to shooting. Rookies get four (4), Marksmen get two (2), Experts get one (1).

Qualifications must be earned in each rifle class. Qualifying Expert in Shoot What You Have (SWYH (see Rule 7)) will not qualify you as Expert in Light or Heavy rifle classes. A person could be classified Expert in Light in the Marksman and Heavy class, and Rookie in SWYH, all at the same time.

A match competitor can only post one (1) score per month for a given Rifle Classification, (see Rule 7), but can use any .22 LR rifle in his collection. . This will keep the administration of these matches to a managable level. Hold on to your Official attempts until you are done shooting them. Then post your best effort.

Note: additional practice for the Marksman and Expert classes will be allowed by using targets that are not the USBR 10 Bull. Any other suitable target the marksman wishes to use is acceptable. We rely on the 'honor system'. If we all follow the rules our marksmanship skills and enjoyment of the sport will grow accordingly.


7. Three Rifle Classes:

Light Rifle - Factory
A. Rifle: The value of the rifle shall not exceed $500 and shall be limited to 8½ pounds in weight (according to the Blue Book of Gun Values) not including sights or scope attached. No barrel or stock modifications except the barrel may be re-crowned. Ammunition must fall under Rule 2.


Heavy Rifle - Factory
A. Rifle shall have no weight limits or value limits but the stock and barrel must be of original factory design, material, and length. Ammunition must fall under Rule 2.


Shoot What You Have (SWYH)
A. Firearm must be a rimfire rifle. Stock and barrel restrictions do not apply. There shall be no limitation on the ammunition, scope power, or rest used. 1-piece mechanical rests are allowed in the SWYH class.

8. TRIGGERS may be adjusted to a light pull, but must be safe. Custom trigger springs and parts are allowed.
9. SCOPES: Limited to not more than 16 power for the 50yd Matches for the Light Rifle and Heavy Rifle classes. Variables may be used. Just set them at 16 power. No limit on the cost of the scope. There is no scope limit power for the 'Shoot What You Have' class. This rule puts a premium on markmanship skills for the Light and Heavy Rifle Classes.
10. RESTS: Two piece sandbag rests, front and rear are allowed. Slide the rifle forward and back for elevation. Move the rear bag for windage. Squeeze the rear bag for fine elevation adjustments. A bipod may be attached to the rifle. It will not be included in the 8.5 lb. weight limit. Again, no one-piece mechanical rests are allowed for the Light Rifle and Heavy Rifle classes.

In the Shoot What You Have class, it is allowable to use 1-piece mechanical rests if desired.

11. WINTER: You may shoot on an indoor range from December to March. If you shoot indoors, type (INDOORS) at the beginning of the third line of your score report.
12. JUNIOR SHOOTERS: The minimum age of a young person allowed in these competitions will be determined by the parent. A Junior shooter is a young persons who has not reached the age of 18. If your are a Junior: Type (Age ___) at the end of the first line of your score report.
13. SCREEN NAME: If you have one, put it at the end of the first line: (RedNeck)
14. EQUIPMENT & TARGET REPORT: If you can post graphics, give us a picture of your target. Weather reports and excuses, make for interesting reading for others. Put them in your report.
15. THE GOOD, THE BAD, and the UGLY Thread: To allow for more shooting and learning, each month we will have a thread dedicated to “The good, the bad, and the ugly”. Go here to post your best and worst efforts. Post any targets you did not post as an official score submission. This thread exists so you can pound on your chest about that 96-9x you shot at a “practice” target. But please include the details about the flier that kept it from being a 100-10x. Or just post the worst of your efforts maybe someone can help analyze what went wrong and help you improve.


----------------------------------------------

If you don't have a rifle that fits these rules: Shot What You Have.

Later, when we see how these rules work, in the real world, we can think about things that will work better, or attract more shooters to the match.




----------------------------------------------

Format Example:

96-1x Bill Holladay. Cody, Wyoming. (Age 12) (Rookie)
CZ 452 American. Light Rifle Class, Bushnell 4-12 set at 9X. Winchester T-22
Brooks trigger kit. Free floated barrel. No glass bedding.
Misty rain. Shot under a covered firing line. Dad changed targets.

Picture of target. (if you know how to post one)

----------------------------------------------

Another Example:

99-1x Dan Duman. Buffalo, New York (Water Fall) (Marksman)
Win. 52C, Heavy Rifle, Tasco 6-24X set at 9X. CCI Standard.
(BOX STOCK) Front rest was a cement block with a folded up hunting shirt on top.
Rear rest was a shot bag full of sand.
Excuse: First time I ever shot in a match like this.

Picture of target. (if you know how to post one)

----------------------------------------------

Yet Another Example:
100-10X Annie Oakley, Drake Co. Ohio (Expert)
Rem. 40XR BR KS, "Shoot What You Have", Leupold 36X Benchrest (Fixed), ELEY 10X
Custom Rig. with Shilen bbl, tuner, and all the "Bells and Whistles".
Custom 1-piece Mechanical Rest
Excuse: Never needed to give one !

Newbie

96-4X Joe Spina, Placentia, CA (Rookie)
Stiller 2500x. "Shoot What You Have", Weaver XR 46, Eley Match
Shilen ratchet, Harrel style tuner
Sinclair rest with a rear rest I bought from someone on RFC, then modified. The butt rides on delron.
Excuse/Intro: I've been shooting for a while (including the USBR target), just had this rifle built and finally decided to get serious about trying to learn to read wind, rather than always trying to avoid it. Today was the first time I used a flag other than one stapled to my target frame.

Well, now I see how much there is to learn. Winds were about 4-14 mph but worse is that the flag 10 yards in front of me rarely blew in the same direction as the one stapled to my target frame and the direction on each changed often and quickly.

Seemed some of my best shots were the few occasions both flags were pointing right and were horizontal, with the wind at about 12mph (measured from the bench). I'd shoot high in the 6 ring and get a 10. So, that's about all I learned today .

I read through the rules again before posting and realized I forgot to announce my intention to shoot a target. Hope everyone is ok with me posting even though it doesn't count. By posting I feel like it is kicking things off and motivating me to improve.

PS I printed several ways trying to get the targets from getting cut off. This one is actually big with bulls measuring 2.1, though within the +- 0.10. I'll try to get it right for future results.

Wise decision to learn to shot in the wind instead of trying to avoid it. That looks like a good start. Almost all of the misses are in the same place so when you see that condition again, you know to hold at about 11 o'lock and the wind will give you an X.......

Thank you for the words of encouragement I need it even more after today! Most of the misses were holdoffs and generally in the correct direction, just not quite the right distance from the center. Left and right but also the amount of drop and lift, even though the winds were much more mild.

going backwards

95-1X (the plug barely saved me on two shots) Joe Spina, Placentia, CA (Rookie)
Stiller 2500x. "Shoot What You Have", Weaver XR 46, Eley Match
Shilen ratchet, Harrel style tuner
Sinclair rest with a rear rest I bought from someone on RFC, then modified. The butt rides on delron.
Excuse:
Shot at a new-to-me rimfire only range and hopefully my new home. Winds were maybe 2-9, though the highest reading I got was about 6mph. I was among experienced shooters. Though this target was worse than the last, everyone was commenting on how tricky the winds were today. After a couple of my worst shots, I heard others make gestures of frustration. Twice someone commented to another shooter where his shot landed and it was the same as mine.

With most of my shots, my holdoff was in the correct direction, just not far enough or too far. On a couple shots during the morning, the bullet went in an unexpected direction, though someone told me that happened to him, so I guess whoever it is who figures this out best shoots the best. Simple, eh?

I have a second target that is also a 95 but a 2x, which I will post later.

I also shot Big Green. While a 236 is far below my best, as a % it is close to this 95/100, though with 15 more bulls there is more opportunity for error, therefore I feel good about it.
