Does anyone have the target for this game? The link on page 3 has circles 0.75" on the head, the latest that were posted have 1" circles on the body?

Thanks, Jeff

Got it! Fixed it! Target is in PDF format. See the first post on the first page, all the way at the end. If you need it as a word doc I can do that too.

Glad it was only four hits needed to qualify

I printed off 5 targets -- and needed all of them before I just made it

I shoot from the front seat of my ute, resting the rifle on the wing mirror, so that's how I played the game. You'd be surprised how unstable that actually is!

I'll play again when I finally buy a bipod.



Right hand drive vehicles are handy when the driver wants to shoot!



Hope you agree it's a qualifying target! That was fun, thanks for the great game guys

Well, in case you didn't notice, DairyMan is from near down-under, where the water drains counter-clockwise and the "Utes" (SUV/Pick-Up/Jeep) have the steering wheel on the wrong side so as to facilitate driving on the wrong side of the road.
It looks like 5 hits, but he's claiming 4 as one might have not cut all the way thru the line. Shot while resting on the side view mirror! Great shooting.
Here's a pic of his rifle from the Savage USA site;

17M2. 21"bbl. 1 in 14 twist. Synthetic stock. It's got the nicer Accu-Trigger too. DairyMan post a picture of your rifle too!

That is some good shooting. Even your miss was a kill shot.

Thanks very much, coming from you guys that is a huge compliment (I've been looking at the SS/B 75 / 100 Yard Bullseye Game leader board -- I know how you can shoot!)

I might give that game a go once I have something steadier to shoot from

You do realise it took me five targets to get that result, don't you? I printed them off and thought "This can't be too hard" -- but 50 yards is a long way when aiming at a 1 inch circle. Kudos to those who do it with a 9x scope

My rifle is stock, nothing super about it at all -- just put the scope on and away you go. Sporter barrel too, not the varmint. Here's a pic, the hare was also shot while resting on the mirror.



I've posted a link to the game on a NZ forum, so hopefully a few mor Kiwis will be along to play soon.

Ahh, New Zealand a country that I would like to visit one day. I hope you get some of your friends to try these games as the more people that shoot the more fun to be had by all.

It took me a few trips to the range but I was able to get a couple of targets worth keeping. Shot with a Walther KKJ, Bushnell 3-9X (on 9X) and Eley Sport ammunition. Targets shot at 50 Yards with a bipod off a shooting bench, no rear rest.

I have been thinking about the new Trophy XLT 4-12X for this gun, would make for an interesting shoot at 75 yards. Thanks for hosting





Five Kills



Six Kills

Excellent shooting. You are posted. Let me know if you don't like the red. It's harder than it looks, isn't it? Especially with some wind.
P.S. I want your rifle
