Quest to shoot a 250 on the GM



Log in to see fewer ads
I want to shoot a 250 @ 25 yards on the USBR Green. Monster target . And I think I'm on my way . I tried one of my best shooting CZ's yesterday ( a 452 Varmint in a Pro Varmint stock) and after trying three different ammo , my best was a 241-4X .
Today , I took a couple of my Ruger 10/22 builds and with this one I shot a 245-9X , using SK Standard Plus . This is one of my 10/22 SuperStocks . Factory receiver , JWH bolt kit , Kidd drop in trigger kit , a 19" SS Green Mountain. Heavy Taper barrel , and a Boyds Rimfire Hunter stock . Scope is a Mueller 8.5-25X44 set @ 25X Mildot scope.
IIRC , a 248 is the best I've ever shot , and that's been awhile . Once I've get my 250 @ 25 , I'll think about moving out to 50 yards . Kirby

well

An "X" requires total removal of the ten ring. Appears 5 of your X's do not.

I use an unfired round to plug those shots that are questionable. I see 9X's . If it's only 4 , so be it , I didn't post to be judged . But thanks for your opinion! Kirby

I'm just replicating the rules. All green of ten ring must be completely gone to score an X. If you have a goal with a sport with rules, you should score correctly. "Generous plugging"?? You will benefit from buying a NRA .22 plug.
USBR is a 50 yd. target and sport.

I'm not sure what your agenda is . But if you look below in the Monthly Matches offered here at RFC , the USBR target is shot at both 25 and 50 yards as a match . They even have an semiauto division.
The X's look like they are not completely shot because of the indoor flash picture I took . Whether you think they're in or out doesn't concern me .
This is a fun match , not a sanctioned NRA match .
I no longer have anything left to discuss with you . Kirby

Holy smokes, just trying to get you informed about the target, sport and rules. Blast away at any distance and have fun. If you desire to shoot matches, the rules apply.

I've been shooting matches ( archery and Rimfire , also muzzleloader ) for over 40 years . I know how to score a target . I've actually shot competitive benchrest , have you ? I don't need to be told how to score my targets .
This is a fun quest ! Not a NRA competition . Good grief . Kirby

Ya, over 55 yrs. and know how to score a USBR target and the rules. You can find them on the internet and read them. Hope you shoot better and reach your short range goals.

I won't argue your X count, but I do question your math...

I see three 9's and one 8 giving you a 245, that's good shootin' though, mighty fine in fact.

Update , I've shot about 15-20 cards the past couple weeks . I keep trying different combos searching for that perfect combo .
I've shot three 245's so far . I'm not giving up .
I know that shooting a 250 with a semiauto at twenty five yards isn't a recognized accomplish , but it's my own personal goal .
Before I post another picture of any targets , I'll double check them for accuracy .
Bought a brick of Center X and will be giving it a try tomorrow . Kirby

Good luck Kirby. Post that 250 target when you get it. I won't judge it, only admire it.

I spent some serious time and a bunch of ammo shooting this game. This is the game that taught me more than any other about shooting a semi auto from the bench.

I like your drive to get er' done.

YA

Shooting a 250 at 25 yds. is a significant accomplishment!! I think it's a smart way to learn to shoot this difficult target at 25 yds. first. Good Luck and Good Shooting.
