April Fun Shoots



Log in to see fewer ads
Make a note of these, they will be the guide for all future Fun Shoots'
SmallCal.

RFC Fun Shoot; Classes and Rules
This Fun Shoot is for any RF cartridge rifle, to include the following, .22 RF, .22 Mag. , .17 RF.

All targets in each class are shot at 25 yards.

The (old) rules for Class 1 expired 4-30-09 and have been deleted. (This update to C-1 made 7-16 09)

Note that we will use three different classes of rifles for this shoot and from now on and these class rules will apply for all future Fun Shoots. Make a note of them.

(NEW Rules for Class 1 Fun Shoot as of 7-16-`09 SPECIAL ADDENDUM to C1 irons and scoped shoot. PLEASE NOTE, that from this date (2-4-2019) on forward the ammo used in this class is limited in price to $4.00 per box for 50 rounds.

This Class 1 Fun Shoot is reserved for beginners and novice of any age.
Targets will be generous and fairly easy to learn on.
Class 1. Box Stock HUNTING/PLINKING rifles only, NO target rifles allowed. Allowed modifications will be limited to the addition of a scope with variable power settings and shortening of the butt stock for fit to smaller shooters. Scope power will be assigned at the time of the shoot. Usually not more than 9X. Iron sighted rifles will use original sights or replacements like the original. Any rest is allowed except Machine Rest.
These modifications to this Class 1 shoot are implemented to allow older beginners and novice shooters to join in the Fun Shoot without the heavy competition of shooting against target type rifles and highly skilled shooters. Those rifles and shooters will go to Class 2 from now on. If you have questions, PM me direct. SmallCal

PLEASE NOTE, that from this date (2-4-2019) on forward the ammo used in this class is limited in price to $4.00 per box for 50 rounds.

SmallCal



(Unchanged)
Class 2; Modified Hunting/Sporting Rifles. Allowed modifications will be limited to the addition of adjustable scopes with the power setting assigned at each shoot, adjustable receiver sights, globe front sights, trigger modifications/replacement to lighten weight of pull but NO low end limit but must be safe. Barrel replacement of any design that doesn`t make your rifle exceed the weight limit of 10.5 lb. total weight. Stock modifications or replacement stocks that resemble thumbhole or sporting stocks which have a convex forend profile and horizontal width no greater than 2 inches wide are allowed.
If your Modified Sporting Rifle exceeds any one or more of the above limits, it will be in the higher Class 3 group.

(Unchanged)
Class 3; All of those rifles that were/are designed for the strict purpose of Bench Rest Shooting with unlimited modifications and all of those rifles that exceed any limits in the Modified Hunting/Sporting Rifle class.
This class can be divided into two sub classes of those bench rifles with scopes (unlimited power) and those with iron sights (unlimited type). This sight division will allow all of the super race guns to be included here.

If you are unsure of the class you should be in, go to the next higher class and state that on your score/target postings.
I do know that there will be some rifles that are so close to fitting into more than one category that its hard to tell where they should go. If in question, go up a class.

Post score as shown here.

We shoot these Fun Shoots WITHOUT a time limit and NO restrictions on ammo except in C 1 which is limited to ammo costing $4.00 or less per box of fifty rounds. Take your time and have fun.

Thanks.

I made the Class I's a little more liberal this month in hopes that some youth will get involved

Uh....I'm thinking that you have to cut the actual filament.
The little loop at the top of the contact/support rods.

Scoring clarification questions:

"Cut both filaments".

Photos coming.
So this isnt' the best example of my question but it will do. I think you can score a "10" by punching out the tip.
Imagine if the shot was further right and took out the connection dot where the two filaments converge. I'd score that as a (2).


In this example, I nicked the upper filament but I didn't "Cut" it. I'd score it as a (5).


pmpski_1 and I both shot a target today on our new 25yd target stand (forget to take a photo), and I'd like to clarify these two questions before we post.
We both had a blast building it (after a few re-do's ), and found it to be a lot of fun to shoot.

The top would score 10 and the lower would score a 5. Are you in agreement? I can see where some might need to be plugged they are so close.

I am in agreement.

Especially after you reminded me the the scoring was a 10-5-0.

So you must fully cut the filament to score a 10, and if you shoot out the corner which includes the two filament it's also a 10.

Good shooting, Jack... Those balloons are a bear to hit cleanly.

Thanks Stan. I shot the dark colors first and when I was done, these old eyes were watering pretty good trying to see the light colors. Had to take a break it got so bad.

The finished stand.
A nice Dude that I didn't know was nice enough to show how to carry the stand using the built in hand holds. Stand weighs less than 20#.
Out at 25yds.

RFC Alias Smoothtrigger First name Smooth
Score 130/150 Class III Scoped.
Scope NightForce 15-55x Competition
Rifle make Anschutz 1727F-22 CISM. Ammo Lapua Center-X.
Weather conditions 65 with a 3-5mph L to R wind.


The stand was built on Sunday, and my shooting buddy and I shot one target each after sighting in.

We both thought that you only had to nick the filament. So we thought he only had one 5 and I had two 5's, and a couple of zeros.
Then I re-read the rules. My score dropped to a 110, and I don't know where his ended up.

Anyway today I shot 2 targets.
The 1st one was a hybrid sighting-in/score target that ended up scoring a 115 including one zero.

The second one is shown above.
I was shooting with another friend, and we both thought the shot scored in red was a 10 because both of the filaments would both be dangly free from the contact point, and the other filament.
In other words cut.

I changed it to a 5 because I'm not sure everyone on this thread would agree.
I'd like to hear what others think.

Rifle pictured as shot.
