50 Yard Iron Sight Shoot for Feb. 2021
Jan 2021 Results


50 Yard Iron Sight Shoot
I see this shoot as a place where we may keep track of our own shooting improvements, compare our shooting abilities with our fellow shooters, and to brag a little.
OK, lets start:
Iron Sight (Globe & Peep)
Matches start on the first day of each month and end on the last day of the month. Scores to be reported by the 2nd- 4th day of the following month. A Score Bulletin with all shooters names posted on the 4th or 5th day of the following month.
TARGETS TO BE USED IN THIS MATCH: NRA A 23/5 target. Note: This target is only for 50 yards. Five shots are fired at each bull for a total possible score of 200-20X.
The "HOW TO SCORE" Graphic: See


Ammunition is shoot what you have.
Optical front lens are permitted but limited to 1.5X. Shooters may use tube extensions on either their front or rear sights as long as they do not contain any optical magnification and the extensions do not form one solid tube between sights; i.e., there must be a distinguishable distance between the front and rear tubes making them separate. Shooters may use any type or color of front sight insert (clear, amber, etc.) and after market eyepieces or discs on their rear sight (Merit, Hadley, Gehmann, etc.) as long as the inserts or discs do not offer any optical magnification.
You may shoot as many targets each month with the same rifle but please only post one target. If you use a second or third rifle please only post one target per rifle. Shoot as many rifles as desired.
From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 50 yards.
A maximum of 20 minutes is allowed to fire all sighter shots and five shots at each of the 4 record bulls per target.
You may shoot on an indoor range, please note it when post your score.
The let's not:
have any rail guns, or benchrest stocks. Any rifle with a benchrest type stock or a custom action or a factory action that has been "blueprinted" will not be allowed in this class. A benchrest stock is one that has a foreend with a flat bottom, more than 2.7 inches wide, and/or has the bottom of the buttstock parallel or near parallel to the bottom of the foreend. Bench Rest Blocks (plates attached to the accessory rail or stock) are not permitted.
At the end of the year (early January) I will compile all of a persons scores devided by 12 (months in a year) and post a yearly score.
I would like for everyone to report thier score and equipment information as follows
Example:
Your name or screen name
Rifle, ammo, score
Equipment list (rest front/rear, any thing special about your setup)
Weather/or shot indoors
Excuses: Anything you would like us to know about your shooting day.
Would be nice if you could post a photo of your setup.

Thanks David

Will remember in the future. Hope I can remember to start the match over closer to the first of the month so this will not be necessary.

You are making it hard for the rest of us posting these great scores this time of year.

Always happy to have some good luck with me.

Thank you. I am always happy to have some good luck with me. The 20 bullets that went down range happened to be loaded with consistent powder charges. And not using wind flags, I lucked out on the wind patterns and strengths. And I did my best at having the sights on target when I touched off each shot. And I have had days, as I suspect we all have had, when I did everything right and part way through the 20 shots a cartridge has a different amount of powder and the shot hits high or low, but outside the ten ring. The quality control efforts are what make the best ammunition more pricy than the lesser cost ammo. I think I have a pretty good lot of the Wolf Match Extra and as I have other lots, will need to keep better track of what I am using to see if results vary. To see that requires a lot of shooting and for me, that is done over many days which introduces a lot of other variables. The end result is that I don't really know, but have a sense as to what is better than another.

February in Tucson

198-10x, Ed Magnusen, emagcon
Kimber 82g, original sights from CMP, Federal Auto Match
Cowan front rest, protektor rear bag
Sunny, windy 15 to 22 from 8 o’clock, 38 feels like 32
49-3x, 49-2x, 50-3x, 50-2x


Getting down to dregs on .22. Found some Federal Auto Match I use for pistol.
My 82g is my only rifle that likes this ammo. I’m reporting this score for the absent Tucson gang. Guelo was there freezing his nuggets off but he shoots pistol. (one of those people)
