Tough target



Log in to see fewer ads
I think I have to admit defeat. I went to the range today and tried this target again with moderate wind of 5-8 mph. Had some reaalllyy old Midas M made in the early 90's, some Center X, a fairly good lot of SK Std+ and Norma Match. I could not do better than the 41 already posted. I would have 5 or 6 really good shots on a target than a couple still in the circles and then a couple 7's. When I got home I finally figured out that one needs to be able to group 10 shots inside 1/2 inch to really score well to get a 30. That my forum friends is fantastic shooting and way beyond my straight off the shelf Savage and my old eyes. Those of you who have shot scores in the 20's are to be commended. You are way beyond my pay grade and therefore I congratulate you. Maybe on the next month's target you can have 5 shot targets so someone like me can do well too. Only kidding as I really appreciate those of you who step up to conduct these matches. Brings out the kid in me! Thanks

Outstanding Jerry. I've shot a few with my MTR Lilja and only have one below 40. Can't figure out what the heck I'm doing wrong.

My problem is with the bag on the front rest. I cannot seem to get
a consistent hold on the forearm. I may have figured it out after I shot this target.
I put three rounds in a group less than 1/8 inch with the new hold. Time will tell.

Hope you folks have some time this weekend to give 100 yards a try. I would like to see some more 457s in the mix. And what has become of all those DJ rifles?

The heat distortion might make it difficult to see the target.

SHOOT THE BOIL!

I used to shoot with some older guys that showed me how to shoot the mirage rather than use the wind flags.
