Thanks.

It's the very first "sticky" in this section. Pretty sure there are links to various paper targets in there as well.

******* 25 YD SCOPE ****** 5/16/19


SCORE: 463-9X
NAME: Purple Bikerr
LOCATION: Belleville, Wis.- In the Backyard
GUN: CZ Super BRNO 2500
GUN SETUP:__x__ Scope ___Irons ___Sling
AMMO: CCI SV
INDIV TGTS SCORES: 96-2x...95-2x...87-2x...94-2x...91-1x

I put a Weaver V-24 w/varminter reticle on this gun today. I wanted to see how good it will really shoot. (Off of the bench it was impressive @ 25 yds.)

Bad weather is predicted for tonight. When I shot this set, it was "the calm before the storm." Overcast, and no wind that was noticeable.

The scope didn't help my score, though.

Thanks for joining us Doc, looks like you found the rules section. Thanks for using the entry format. There is also the scoreboard sticky, check it out.
Lots of May left, keep shooting. Great to have a Canadian on the team again !
All the best,
Bob4BVM

Holy Smokes! This ties/beats my previous PR of 490-13X shot in December.
...

I figured I would have to work on this new position for a while to see if it was going to improve my shooting but I think these scores speak for themselves.
...

Wow, hot score Allen ! Congrats on the PR.
Help us out, tell us about that new position !

Cheers
Bob

There you go Roy, back in the 470's ! I could not do that with my Ruger, and certainly NOT with the flu !
I'm guessing your Ruger is at a natural disadvantage to your 82G... what's the weight difference ?

Thanks. I'll try to describe what changed. I raised the scope rings from 1" to 1.5" (bottom of scope tube to receiver). That allowed me to drop the rifle down a half inch.

- Better purchase of the buttpad in the pocket of my shoulder.

- Support hand was the trigger-guard in the heal of my hand, fingers pointing forward. Now it's pseudo-fingertip hold with the pointer finger on the left side of the stock, the middle finger extended down the middle of the stock, ring finger on the right side of the stock, thumb up against the front of the trigger-guard. Exact same hold I use for my TX200 air rifle. Old hold used to be front-heavy, now I can balance the whole rifle perfectly in my support hand.

- Trigger hand was a high angled grip. Now it's a lower pistol-style grip which fits the Pharr/McDonald stock design much better.

- I lost a bit of cheek pressure to more of a "jaw-weld" but I'm used to that with the TX200.

I'm sure pictures would be way better than my explanation but hopefully that works for you.

Oh, I didn't work on any paper targets last weekend and I've got a club match this weekend, so I'm changing my scores from "practice" to "entries".

I don't know what the weight difference is, I have not weighed either of them but the Ruger us probably 3 to 4 pounds lighter.

I have added a 2 pound weight to the accessory rail making it muzzle heavy and giving it similar pointing characteristics to the Kimber.

Now if I can get all the add ons to stay tight.

Yesterday I went out and struggled to make a 470 which is not bad for me but I had too many silly mistakes. But one good thing I happened on was a little technique change that seemed to help me a lot. I typically take a while for each shot, trying to get just the right sight picture, etc. Problem with that is I get more tired and toward end of the set shots get harder & harder to pull off right.
Yesterday since I was only doing so-so I played around with different approaches to the shot. What I found that seems to work really well is this:
1-Shoulder rifle, rough align so when I look thru sights the target is nearby so I don't have to hunt for it.
2-Lower cheek to stock, and quickly acquire a good POA
3-Once major wobble settles down a bit, Get POA on 10-ring or as near as todays wobble will allow.
4-As SOON as you get a decent 'best hold' around 10-ring, begin trigger squeeze.
5-Maintain shot guidance thru shot, let that guidance become your follow-thru as bullet hits target.
6-IMPORTANT ! Do NOT blink at the shot ! Cant guide shot with eyes closed !!!
7- If all that takes more than 10 seconds, lower gun & start over. Forced shots are a plague we bring on ourselves. They NEVER work out.

I know that is all basic stuff, and i'm sure I have "discovered" it before and just forgot it.

Determined to do better today, I went out & shot a set doing my best to stick to that routine. Ended up with a 6-point improvement over yesterday.
Managed a 476-17X.

I know I could have done better but had fewer bad mistakes than yesterday.
I shot just three 8s today, but you guessed it, every one of them was a blinked shot !

There is tomorrow, God willing...

Cheers
Bob

Things were going my way Sunday. I had an accidental discharge and it was a 7 on the correct target.

Some good shooting going on with you folks.
Nice score Allen!
72Coupe, I'm always really happy when I have one go off before I'm settled and it's on the paper. A 7 means you must have pretty a good natural point of aim!
