I’m interested in participating. Are these bulls the same dimensions as an ARA Factory target? They must be smaller if shooting them at 25 yards?

They are the same size as the ARA "Unlimited" target but considerably smaller than the ARA "Factory" target, Appalachian2. (I have the regulation targets from a club match I shot last Wednesday and measured both.) Still fun to shoot at 25 yards for the RFC match. Look forward to you joining in.

Thanks for the reply. I thought that would be too easy with an unlimited gun. About the trigger on a factory gun, what about polishing factory parts? I have a few entries to choose from. I’m just trying to be on the up and up. I printed out some targets and will be shooting soon.

The target is the same as regular ARA target. When you print check the size, outside large circle is 1 in.

Polishing the trigger parts is allowed, just no replacement parts that are not stock to the model of the gun. Of course this only applies to the factory class.

As to being to easy, you need a 2500 score to move up to the 50 yd. target. Remember a factory class is being run along with a unlimited class. Less things for me to keep track of.

Please come along on the ride, we would love to have you shoot with us.

Question for Chuck40219: When I started this match I was using a 3" wide bag rider so listed my posts as "Unlimited". I now have a narrower bag so the bag rider isn't needed and wonder if I should now be posting as "Factory" class. The only other question would be the $1,000.00 cost point. When I purchased the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis, last November, the MSRP was $999.00 but raised to $1,039.00 the first of the year. (I paid $881.00) Considering this is all in fun for an online match, it really isn't important but thought I would ask.

Out this morning and couldn't beat my 2400 best for the month but came close.

I believe the factory class would be appropriate.

And it is a fun match, so have fun.

By the way great target. Getting close to having to move up to the 50 yard target.

I’m glad you said to check the size.

Appalachian2. Did you set your printer to 100%? That should give you a 1" circle. If left alone my printer thinks it knows what I need and sizes to fit but when I changed the settings to 100% it worked.

Weird. I had to set the printer to 108% to get it to measure 1”. Maybe I should check my calipers.

Check the 100 ring. Should be .500" to outside of black.

Looks like you are ready to go, Řystein. My CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis puts me in a difficult position with either just over weight or cost for many of the matches here on RFC so I am keeping my fingers crossed this match takes off. Even at 25 yards it can be a challenge for someone like me that just started shooting the end of last year. I am definitely hooked and having a ball.
