July 2017 25 Yard Scope CZ/BRNO Rimfire Benchrest Match



Log in to see fewer ads
Guidelines:

CZ or BRNO scoped sporters less than or equal to 9.0 lbs when weighed with the magazine removed. The CZ 452 and 455 Varmint should qualify unless your glass and rings are more than 2 pounds, but as far as BRNO Models 3 and 4 -- sorry guys, you'll have to step up to the 50 yard distance.

Any safe trigger. Maximum magnification of 9x on the scope. (Those with variable scopes set them to 9x or lower).

No aftermarket barrels or stocks only CZ's original stocks and barrels. There are other BR games on RFC for dramatically altered rifles. We are trying to encourage competition with unmodified or minimally modified scoped CZ sporters.

Target is the USBR Target (The Green Monster)

22 long rifle

Fired from a benchrest using front and rear support, must be free recoiling (no gun vises), but a bi-pod is fine if the shooter prefers.

Distance to target is 25 yards

Time limit - 1 hour for unlimited sighters and the 25 rounds for score

You can shoot on an indoor range if it is your only option, but please report that fact in your post.

You can post multiple targets if each is fired with a different CZ. For example, a shooter could post one with her CZ Varmint and another with her CZ American and even a third with a scoped Ultra Lux!

Post a pic of your target and the equipment you used in this thread by July 31, 2017.

Honor system, and we couldn't ask for a more honorable bunch. Remember, you can shoot up to four targets and post the highest score of the four.

A spotting scope will be most helpful in determining hits and misses as you are shooting, but it is not required. Binoculars or a scoped rifle laying to the side can be used to spot as well.

Wind flags are fine for either the 50 foot open sight match or the the 25 yard scope match. I usually tie a piece of bright streamer or the like to a hammered-in stake.

Use this format to post your score(s):

07/04/2017
210-1X
Yankee Doodle Dandy (John Q. Public)
CZ 452 Trainer, Weaver RV-9 scope set at 9x
Wolf Match Target
Cowan front rest, Protektor rear bunny bag
Cloudy with light winds and temps in the low 50s

How to score:





TARGETS?

Good question!

It looks like Kolin, the head guy of the USBR organization, will still sell you 10, 100, or 200 to get you started. This is how I got my first batch back in the early aughts. Here is the link to his notice on the USBR site followed by the link to American Target Company for a minimum order of 250.

240-6X
Tomcat21 (Ted Kuhn)
CZ 452 Ultra Lux
Tasco (Japan) 8-32x 42mm @ 9X
Wolf Match Target
Bald Eagle front rest/ Protektor rear bag
92, Sunny, winds variable 0 to 5 mph, very humid

Did 4 points better than last months final score, but doubled the X count to 6.
One of the fellows here mentioned he shoots with only his finger touching the rifle,
I couldn't do that without moving rifle out of position so I lightly held rifle at the wrist.
I am pleased that I had no 7's or 8's, but still need to improve my overall score.
I shall try this new way again........

Thats a good target Ted,good shooting, sporter rifles are very picky about how there held and it seems to vary from rifle to rifle and makes shooting this target a tough chore. I shoot a 452 Trainer and I think there one of the toughest to shoot from a bench, I am still experimenting with bag placement on the forearm and my hold, hopefully will get to the range soon to give it another try.

Here are some groups I fired at 25 yards while sighting in to shoot the USBR target, last week,this is where it shows one how much difference there is in group shooting and score shooting when moving from bull to bull....one should shoot nearly perfect scores but it dont work out that way for me.

It's good to know that I am not the only one that happens to.

Hello very new to shooting a green monster target , never shot one. Question I have is on the the scoring. What does the second number in the score mean. The 5x or 11x. I gather that 250 is perfect but wondered about the second number. Ordered some targets and want to join the fun no matter how badly I shoot. Hopefully I can figure out how to post a picture. Thanks in advance , I have learned much here.

Join the match's they can be addicting
Too get a 10 score your bullet has to just touch the 10 scoring ring.
An X is when your bullet hole wipes out the ten ring and the X is too help braking up ties in scoring.
A scoring plug is a very helpful when you add up your target score...but you can use a bullet from full loaded round.
A perfect score would be 250-25X

Dadgummit$%$#@&! I wish I had never seen that! Now I will never be happy again until I shoot a ???-25X on the Green Monster. Great! Now I have one more Obsession of the Nearly Unattainable!

My other wish is to find a lost shipment of Civil War Gold in my backyard...maybe while I'm going to get my Green Monster with 25 X's
