November 2017 100-Yard Benchrest Challenge


Guidelines:

Notice: : These guidelines are for November’s 2017 100-Yard .17/.22 Rimfire Benchrest Challenge. Hopefully it is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, please PM me for clarification or post your question in the thread.

The classes will be divided into three (3) groups. Factory Sporter, Modified and Honorary. Only CZ or BRNO rifles are allowed in the Factory Sporter and Modified classes. Any rifle capable of chambering a .17 or .22 caliber rimfire round is permitted in the Honorary class.

Factory Sporter: Rifles can include trigger modifications (including aftermarket trigger replacement,) bolt work, striker mods, etc., but it must use a factory CZ barrel. No tuners are allowed, even with factory barrels. Stocks must be factory OEM. No limitations will be included on optics. Use whichever power scope you wish.

Modified: Will include any rifle which hosts a 3rd party barrel, (Lilja, Benchmark, Shilen, etc.) and/or non-OEM stock. Again, no limitation on optics.

Honorary: Though he is not a CZ shooter, this class was begun due to the inspiration of Smoothtrigger and his desire to participate in our Challenges. This class will include any non-CZ/BRNO rifle of .17 or .22 rimfire caliber and will also include any action capable of chambering either round. Again, no limitation on optics.

Posted Targets: During the Spring, Summer and Fall months, consider this to be from March through November, inclusive, all submitted targets must be shot outdoors at 100 yards. During Winter months, consider this to be from December through February, inclusive, participants have the option to shoot indoors, but will be shooting under a Class entitled "Indoor." The "Indoor" class will be open to any make and/or model of .17 or .22 caliber rimfire. There will be no restriction on optics and the choice of ammunition will be left to the shooter's discretion.

This month, the target is provided to us by Jaia. Though he usually stays relatively low key during our Challenges, without his skills at providing a target each month, it just wouldn't happen. For all he does to help me with this, I truly thank him

The biggest point I want to make is the fact this target is scored "Worst Edge." If you nip, clip or otherwise hit the lower scoring ring...you get the lower score. Yeah, it makes life suck. Also, in order to score an "X" this month, you must completely obliterate the "X." No part of the "X" can be remaining.

Target Guidelines: You will fire 1-shot per bullseye at each of the 10 bullseyes per page. A sighter has been included at the top right of the page. Remember, it is imperative to have your bullseye's centered….USE THE SIGHTER!!!

Maximum score is 10X and 100 points. In the event of a tie, we'll resort to best composite group size for the 10 shots. I will probably beg Jaia's assistance in this portion of the Challenge.

It's actually a pretty easy target to score, just remember "Worst Edge Scoring" and Obliterate The "X" for a bullseye. Pretty simple!

Here is the Black version of the target….

http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=...MkJwNDg%2Fview

For those of us who are visually impaired, here’s the Red version

http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=...OUtPVGs%2Fview

When you print the target be sure to set it to print "Actual size" and 100 percent which should give you the correct target size.

Supporting The Rifle/Rests: The rifle can be supported front and rear; however no one-piece or vice-type rests are allowed. Bipods/rear bags, mechanical rests (front and/or rear) may also be used either from the bench or prone position….shooter’s choice.

Calibers can include any 17 or 22 caliber rimfire in any class. There are no restrictions on bullet type. You may use match ammo, HV, HP or whatever it is with which you typically shoot.

Remember to include the necessary information when posting your target:

1. Shooter’s RFC screen name.
2. Rifle description – Make/Model
3. Ammunition used
4. Date of target
5. Class - Sporter, Modified, Honorary

For those with any number of CZ’s/BRNO’s and other brands, feel free to shoot in any class at your discretion. Please post only your best target from each class.

Target Guidelines: 200-Yard Challenge

Fire a total of 10 shots per page...tightest group wins. Doesn't get any easier then that.

Black Version:

http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=...TUcxX1U%2Fview

Red Version:

http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=...SHc2QzA%2Fview

The top 3 places from each class will receive the following:

1st Place Factory Sporter:

25.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

2nd Place Factory Sporter:

15.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

3rd Place Factory Sporter:

1 Box .22 CCI SV

1st Place Modified

25.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

2nd Place Modified:

15.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

3rd Place Modified:

1 Box .22 CCI SV

1st Place Honorary

25.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

2nd Place Honorary

15.00 Gift Card From Home Depot

3rd Place Honorary:

1 Box .22 CCI SV

In the event a shooter feels a mistake has been made in reference to a competitor’s score or the shooter’s final position among participants, an RFC Moderator will make the final determination.

Please have all targets into the thread which reads “November 2017 100-Yard Benchrest Challenge,” no later then 5 days before the end of the month. This month, the latest date shall be 12:00 Midnight, November 25th. This will allow all targets to be viewed and any protests to be answered.

When your target is submitted, it MUST have all pertinent information included such as shooter's screen name, rifle type/model, ammunition used, etc.

Have fun!!!

Okay guys...I think I've covered all the bases for November's Challenge.

As a side note, or if you didn't follow all of October's thread, we're adding a 200-Yard portion this month. If you have a range with that distance, give it a try. It will be a completely separate class and will be a pretty much "run what ya brung," one-time thing.

Remember too, next month is the beginning of the Indoor portion of our Challenge. Again, this will be a totally separate class and will also be a "shoot what ya brought." The Indoor class will be run from December through February and is mostly for our shooters to the North.....but hey, if you have a 100 yard indoor range, give it a shot.

Let's do it....

Bob

Hmmmmm......decisions, decisions...100 yards and 10 shots or 200 yards and 10 shots....hmmmmm.
Who am I kidding, you know I'll be setting up on the 200 yard range.
I wonder if I can hit inside the 3 ring on the I_BS for all 10 shots at 200 yards?

It ought to be easier when the wind isn't gusting above 25 knots....

First off, are you guys totally 100% sure a 22lr will even go that far? This target will be a challenge for those not having a canted scope base. I calculate I will have to hold over between 18 and 19 MOA from my 100 yd zero, which is close to maxed out on the elevation turret. No worries, that's why 2x4s were invented LOL. The good news is that the effect of ammunition muzzle velocity variance on vertical is almost 4X greater at 200 yd than at 100 yd . This ought to be fun!

GS, I prefer the 200 yard range for most of my shooting.
Rarely gets used by the majority of the locals.
Has steels and target frames to fit y'er mood.
I use rimfire at 200 mainly to work on wind judgement.
What I've learned using the 22 and 17 at 200 yards
has helped tremendously on my current centerfire project.
200 yards with the 22lr has about the same time of flight as a 69 gr 223 smk at 450 yards.
Learning to pay attention to the environmental wind-i-cators has made a difference.

Lots of good scopes with enough vertical in them if you use Burris rings with the inserts in them, or you can go with a base with 20 or 25 moa built in, you may lose the ability to zero at 25 yards with either but usually not.

I shoot my KIDD Supergrade at a Long Range Silhouette match every month.

Furthest out target is at 200 meters, and requires 27 moa of adjustment from my 50yd setting.

My Leupold VX-6 3.5-18X Duplex Fire Dot has 70 moa of elevation, which gives me enough to get a 200m zero.

However I did install the Kidd 10 moa rail just to keep it more centered.


Unfortunately my home range won't allow a 22's to shoot past 100yds because of our baffle system, and lack of a berm directly behind the 200yd line.

That's a nice looking facility and I'd bet that setup helps with the wind conditions. Unfortunately, someone made the ceiling too low .

I would like to request clarification on the guidelines for this month's target. There are two sets of Guidelines listed; the top one seems to indicate a different (10-bull) target. The lower one indicates a 10-shot group only. This month's target is C-T-C max spread for a 10-shot group only, regardless of the scoring rings, correct? No penalty for placement of the group relative to the target center?

Correct...you're looking at 2 entirely different targets. The first target is intended to be shot at 100 yards and includes 10 each targets of 1 shot each...worst edge scoring.

The second target is intended to be shot at 200 yards and is based solely on a 10-shot group size...groups are measured center-to-center.

As in last month...do not automatically assume a .224 bullet hole in your paper. Take an average of 3 to 4 holes and use the average of those 3 or 4 holes to calculate your bullet diameter.

So long as your bullets land on the paper in the 200 yard Challenge, that's really all that matters. Now, it would benefit you as a shooter to get them as close to the "X" as possible...but that's up to you.

Any other questions, lemme know.

Bob

This is the I_BS one shot one dot for 100 yard use...






This is the 200 yard 10 shot group target...



We could even shoot it for score if'n you want further complications...

10 shots worst edge scoring, if it stays inside the central ring you get the X.

Shot 4 targets last Friday in decent conditions. 65 and 2-4 mph winds.

Shot the first 2 with the same new batch of Federal TNT that I shot last months target with.
Unfortunately I couldn't get it to repeat last months performance. Tried it with and without the tuner, different holds and so on, but I kept getting some serious flyers.
So I shot an 80, and a 81 with that batch of Federal.

I then switched to a brand new batch of CCI TNT with much better results.
Shot this 85, and a 87 (that some how got tossed). My wife took the 5th.
Shot without the tuner.

Smooth

gstaylorg

Actually the wall doesn't help because the overhead baffles cause a lot of swirling vertical winds. That wall seems to exaggerate that effect.
That end of the line is reserved for position shooters who can live with that.

I always shoot from the middle bays, or the far right of the line. That far right bench has a hill running down the right side, which can help with certain wind directions.

Blah, blah, blah...2-4 mph...I was out Sunday am and it was blowing 24 mph!




50, 62, and 75 at 100 yards. Y'er I_BS target is a hoot, Smooth!


In those 25 knot gusts I was all over the place at 200 yards with the 17 hmr

Smooth and Jaia...thanks for getting us started....

The targets this month are going to be fun...

I'm gonna get some funny looks from my buddy when I head over to his range and hang targets up at 200 for a rimfire..He already looks at me weird when I hang em at 100...lol

Nice shooting you guys...
