Targets and matches questions



Log in to see fewer ads
I printed off some USBR practice targets.

How would I get an idea of how well I would shoot the real target?
Is there any matches here for this practice target?
Thanks

I’m new at it but seriously think the way to find out just how you’d shoot a USBR target is to get some and try it. I bought 100 USBR targets from the guy listed in the “How to order official USBR 50 yard targets” link on here for all of $27.50 shipped, and they were here in about three days. They are a heavy paper target, very nice and far better than I can print off. So I just started shooting some with fairly good ammo. I haven’t done that well; it’s a learning process.

For example, I shot a USBR target where the last row showed a 10, 9, 10, 9 then a darned 7. I fired a five shot group with the same ammo, same rifle & rests immediately after that was 0.266” CTC. That shows just how different shooting the Green Monster is vs shooting groups, at least for me. I have a good rifle and am a pretty fair shot for groups, casual plinking, and on big game but the USBR 50 is a whole new thing. I need to work on how I shoot it with F & R bags, or spring for a mechanical front rest...then keep on learning.

I think if you spend the $27.50 you’ll find it a very reasonable deal. There are 25 & 50 yard monthly USBR matches in the CZ subforum here, but I don’t know of others.

If I am not mistaken, you can use that target in the monthly CZ 50 yard

match.https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1226399

Copy and paste if that works or, as mentioned above, go to the CZ/BRNO forum and look for the July 50 yard match.

Also, as mentioned, you will get a better idea of how you actually score if you order some of the official USBR targets as you will get a cleaner hole to score. Once you look at some of the targets either there or on the 25 yard thread you will see how critical a neat hole is.
