Ricochet 50yd Challenge



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm very proud to announce the start of a 50yd shooting game. With Vincent's blessing, we're paying homage to one of the early forces in SuperStock.

Let's play the "Ricochet 50yd Challenge"!

The rules:
1. Any rifle that complies with SuperSport Heavy is legal.
2. Any ammo you like.
3. Any target you like to use that includes the following:
Four five shot groups
Four sizer shots
Rifle name/ammo
Shooter name
Date, only targets dated after the start of the game, 3/25/14, are legal
4. Each group will net score less than .512
5. Same rules regarding rests as used in Super stock

Groups are measured from the widest points and the sizer average is subtracted to give the net score.

Please post the target and a pic of the rifle so we can see what you are using.

Good luck!!!!

Nice shooting. You got to love a gun that looks as good as that one that shoots so fine.

If the ammo situation ever gets to where I can get decent ammo anytime I want or need it I'll get to shooting targets again. Till then I guess I'll do more fishin'.

Once again, a very nice target and a beautiful rifle. Congrats

Yeah Brandon was at the bench next to mine and may have had the only rifle shooting like it should. A very nice young man that unfortunately had to meet me on a bad day for me but we had fun anyway. He is welcome to shoot with me anytime he can get away.

By the way rokehe.....the rifle is MUCH nicer in real life. Pictures do not do it justice.

Brandon I will post your spot in the morning. I am just all worn out and you would not beilve the trip home. Got lost trying a "new" and turned a 120 mile drive into a 170 mile drive with 40 of it on twisty roads in the mountains in the middle of no where. Fitting end to the day.

It takes a solid stance and solid pistol grip along with a perfect trigger squeeze and no unconscious dropping of the barrel to peek at where your shot went. If you donít see the muzzle flash, you arenít doing it right.

If the game is still active, here's my entry.
.381-.243-..404-.315

Shot with Old Brown Shoe, using SK rifle match.


If the game is not active, that's OK.
I still had fun shooting the target.

Looks like another orphaned game. I will take care of it for awhile but if anyone else could run it I would appreciate it.

I will take care of this latest entry in the morning, and conrats for some fine shooting!
