Drove down to our not-flooded range for some off-hand practice. We've got our State air rifle silhouette match two weekends from now so I need to keep up with my air rifle practice. Shot these after the 25 and 50-yard challenge targets.


Practice: TQ-14 50-foot paper, outdoors
Date: 9-3-17

Target Rifle:
Anschutz 2002 SuperAir
Weaver V-16 scope @ 16X
JSB 7.33 pellets

Round #1:
Chickens - 7
Pigs - 6
Turkeys - 5
Rams - 7
TOTAL - 25

Round #2:
Chickens - 4
Pigs - 7
Turkeys - 4
Rams - 6
TOTAL - 21


Sporter/Open Rifle:
Air Arms TX200
Weaver V-24 @24X
JSB 10.34 pellets

Round #1:
Chickens - 5
Pigs - 8
Turkeys - 4
Rams - 4
TOTAL - 21

Round #2:
Chickens - 5
Pigs - 7
Turkeys - 4
Rams - 2
TOTAL - 18


I used the official scoring method for these paper targets where at least half of the pellet has to be on the animal to count as a hit. Had I counted any edge hit I would have had 12 more points across all four targets.

What's more important to me is I got out there and shot two rounds with each rifle. I need the practice!
