Rico's 8 ball and Zee Row games.....



Log in to see fewer ads
In memory of Rico I want to keep his 8 ball and Zee Row games going in super sport heavy.

8 Ball

1/8", that is, LOL,

well, decided to go ahead and get this off the ground and onto the "table" LOL, nice new green felt,

guidelines are pretty much the same as the 13MM game, cept @ 25 yds; but for a re-fresher;

3 out of 4 groups, pick the best 3

4 rounds per group,

one receiver per entry,

any scope, types of rests are okay,

each group equal to .125 (1/8") or less after subtracting the avg of your 4 single mzrn'g holes, mzrmnts to be done by the shooter,

granted, this will be quite tuff, but some here feel that it is time
to raise the bar, and i think this SHOULD be fun, LOL,

i hope the "guidelines" are clear enuff, but am open to any suggs as usual as this is for everyone, and the ONLY thing that CANNOT be changed is the TITLE,

BTW, whenever anyone qualifies, their name will be posted just like in the other games, and the only duty here will be to polish the rack which will
be made of XXX grade walnut and to keep the felt dusted; powder cannister full, ample supply of chalk for the nxt "shooter", kinda like the "keeper of the hall"

okay, gals and guys, RACK-EM-UP, LOL,

have fun and shoot straight,

would love to try today, but way too windy to try for teeny holes, maybe a bit later,

Zee Row


This will be a smaller accuracy list than most......I think. To get on it at the lowest level you must shoot 4 groups of 5 shots.

If two of those groups are smaller than .100" you are placed on the 2 ZEE-ROW

If three of those groups are smaller than .100 you are placed on the 3 ZEE-ROW

If four of those groups are smaller than .100 you placed on the 4 ZEE-ROW

Pretty easy huh? As usual you will shoot 1 scoring shot for each group and those scoring shots will be away from any group being measured. A scoring shot starying within 1" of the group will be consider a flyer and part of that group. All targets will be shot at a minimum of 25 yards and ONLY Super Sport rifles are eligible.

Scroll down as there be a page for 2 ZEE, a page for 3 Zee and a page for 4 ZEE

A picture of the target and the rifle are required to post your name on the list.

Good luck.

I guess I will go first. My super sport 10/22 was on it today. Had a great day which inspired me to host the games. A little about it. kidd 16" .920 barrel, Que worked bolt, kidd single stage trigger, currently wearing a weaver v16, kidd recoil assembly and firing pin. all 5 shot groups.



This 8 ball target was shot with eley team.

top left: .203"
top right: .120"
middle: .112"
bottom left: .113"



This 2 zee row target was shot with sk rifle match

top left: .139"
top right: .112"
middle: .088"
bottom left: .090"



and finally, something even the cz 452 varmint that I hold my personal best string of 50 and 100y groups with, but I still haven't been able to accomplish.....
3 zee row.

shot with eley target

top left: .082"
top right: .079"
middle: .219"
bottom left: .094"

That's some good shooting Clem.
I don't think I have ever shot a zero in my life, close a few times.
Don't think allot of people realize that some of these games @ 25 yards are tough stuff, that wind can effect ya & it takes some good ammo.

I was having optics difficulties with my annie, I was shooting mid teens with my 452 American. I would get really close to an 8th with it and then boom! so I got irritated, put the bolt guns up and started shooting the 10/22. and wow! I didn't think the ammo was doing it working as well as it could, but I left my 452 varmint at home so that figures. I was surprised the worst group target came from my best batch of ammo, that batch of TEAM. I guess it just goes to show you never know. I have been extremely pleased with this little kidd barrel. shoots really well for a used $125 gunbroker purchase.

took some sk magazine to the range today for my cz. took some fed 719 for the 10/22. it was in the low 50s so I had some heating pads in my range bag. seemed to work as the sk was shooting as well as it normally does in warmer conditions. so I put some sk in the 10/22 to see if it was warm enough to cycle the bolt. cold std vel ammo usually has issues cycling even my low power spring in my 10/22. not only did it cycle perfectly, it shot this....



.066, .096, .115 and .070"

Was it that cool this morning? Really?
WOW!!!!

Nice shooting Clem......

Edit:
Actually I think that is stellar shooting. Are you sure you weren't at the pistol range shooting that one? lol just kidding.

Would like to catch up with you at the range some time.
I'll be going back there Friday morning. Possibly You could give me some pointers ?
Faith, Honor, Family

You are so right! Even the 1/4" Game is less than 1 MOA (MOA @ 25 is something like .26175"). Many people have poo pooed that and any other of our 25 yard games.

First of all 25 yards is a pretty common hunting distance for squirrels, rabbits and similar critters so that makes it a practical distance. We are shooting semi auto SuperStock and some of the SuperSport rifles are even lighter even though they have fat LOOKING barrels. I dare anyone to tell me that Ricochet' 8 Ball (.125")or the ZEE Row games are easy! They are not. Even the largest Zee Row of .099" is .02591 MOA

They idea for ZEE Row came when testing a Ruger barrel returned to me after work on it by Skeeter27Red (in fact he numbered it 001). The very first group out of the barrel was a .059" shot with BLAZER ammo!! The answer to the next question is... NO! I never repeated that but came close several times with "good" ammo!


I still have the barrel and it is not more than 5 feet from where I type this!
