November 2019 CZ/BRNO Open Sight 25 Yard Rimfire Central Online Benchrest Match



Log in to see fewer ads
Guidelines:

CZ or BRNO open sighted sporters Ė less than or equal to 8.5 lbs when weighed with the magazine removed Ė any safe trigger Ė CZ factory open sights only (no optics, peeps, ghost rings, apertures, or receiver sights allowed).

No aftermarket barrels or stocks ó only CZ's original stocks and barrels. It is also prohibited to swap the stocks of different CZ models such as taking the stock from a Varmint and putting it on a Trainer. If one has damaged his/her original CZ stock, they may order the same exact factory replacement stock for their specific model. There are other BR games on RFC for dramatically altered rifles. We are trying to encourage competition with unmodified or minimally modified open-sighted CZ sporters. No aftermarket barrels or stocks ó only CZ's original stocks and barrels. As to custom stock bedding performed on a factory stock, no compound-bedding allowed, pillared or non, and plain pillar bedding is prohibited as well.

Target is either the A-23/5 or the A-23/5R (shooter's preference)



22 long rifle

Fired from a benchrest using front and rear support, must be free recoiling (no gun vises), but a bi-pod is fine if the shooter prefers.

Distance to target is 25 yards

Time limit - 1 hour for unlimited sighters at the top bull and 20 rounds for score at bulls #1, #2, #3, and #4 (five rounds at each).

You can shoot on an indoor range if it is your only option, but please report that fact in your post.

You can post multiple targets if each is fired with a different CZ. For example, a shooter could post one with her CZ FS and another with her CZ Trainer. You may shoot up to FOUR targets with EACH rifle and post the highest score fired with each one.

Post a pic of your target (required) and the equipment you used (optional) in this thread by November 30, 2019.

Honor system, and we couldn't ask for a more honorable bunch.

A spotting scope will be most helpful in determining hits and misses as you are shooting, but it is not required. Binoculars or a scoped rifle laying to the side can be used to spot as well.

Wind flags are fine. I usually tie a piece of bright streamer or the like to a hammered-in stake.

*Use this format to post your score(s):

11/28/19
200-20X
Henry Wade Smith V
CZ 452 UltraLux, Eley Black Box
Custom front rest and rear bag
Mid 40s, breezy, and cloudy

* This way I can simply save and insert your scores to the final results post at the end of the month. Thanks.

TARGETS?

(seventh row down - the two variants are side by side)

Great shooting first time out, Kirby. And a good X count with factory iron sights. My crystal ball sees a 200 soon.......

Thanks guys , next range trip I plan on taking a 452 Trainer , a 455 Trainer , and the new 457 Lux and see which one I do best with .
I hope itís a nice sunny cool day with light or little wind . And I hope my eyes stay clear enough to complete four sets of bulls .
Iíve slowed down some , but need to shoot even slower , to give my eyes plenty of time to clear between shots .
Going to take a single shot adapter and load them one at a time .m

I have a question for the guys who shoot this match .
Has anyone tried shooting with a bipod ?
Because the the skinny forearm on the Trainers and Lux , Iíve had difficulty setting up a front rest .
The smallest bag for the Different Caldwell rest are too large of an opening . Iíve not been successful yet in finding the right combination of height with the Caldwell TackDriver .
I may setup a Trainer to take next range trip with a bipod and give it a try .

Kirby FWIW, I shot a target in the 25 yard scoped match a couple weeks ago using a bipod and equaled my best score (245-4x) which was shot using the Caldwell Tackdriver bag. The bipod definitely helped my horizontal shot placement but was a little more hold sensitive. If I didn't put just a tad of shoulder pressure on the butt, the muzzle jumped up just enough to cause a 9 instead of a 10. The bipod is still on for the next range trip and I think it may be the most stable way to shoot my Lux from a bench. Just my experience and I'm sure better shooters may have a different opinion about using a bipod.

197-7x
Hank Smith (Pastprime)
CZ 457 Lux, Eley CMP bulk
Harris bipod front, Bald Eagle rear
Upper 40s, occasional gust of wind, sunny

Hate to give a man advice without trying it myself so I made a quick trip to the range this afternoon to try the bipod and iron sights. First time shooting a target as a "lefty" with iron sights. Not a great score but better than I expected. I didn't wear enough clothes so I left in a hurry. Forgot to take a picture of my equipment. I'll do that next time.

Bipods will work fine if you figure out how to set them up for your rifle, I use a piece of Plexi-Glass under the feet instead of sitting the feet directly on the bench, most of the time this is just the right amount of "drag" on the feet to be consistent with a light weight rim-fire sporter. The Bipod does help with the "roll" when using a rifle with skinny forearm, once you figure out the correct amount of hold your in business.

CZ IRON SIGHT SHOOT OFF

CZ IRON SIGHT SHOOT OFF
452 vs 455 vs 457
Got a chance today to try three different iron sighted CZ rifles .. not just three rifles , but three different models .
********ENTRY SCORE ( for this rifle) open sights*********
11-11-19
199-11X
Kirby
CZ 452 Trainer , SK Magazine
Caldwell TackDriver Front bag , Protektor rear
Simmons Spotting scope .
Sunny to partly cloudy , mid 60’s , Light wind


**********ENTRY SCORE open sights for this rifle ********
11-11-19
196-9X
Kirby
CZ 457 Lux , SK Magazine
Caldwell TackDriver Front bag , Protektor rear
Simmons spotting scope
Sunny to partly cloudy , mid 60’s , light wind


********ENTRY SCORE open sights for this rifle *******
11-11-19
196-5X
Kirby
CZ 455 Trainer , SK Magazine
Caldwell TackDriver Front bag , Protektor rear
Simmons spotting scope
Sunny to partly cloudy , mid 60’s , light wind

These are the scores I shot with each rifle .
My old 452 Trainer came out on top , this time . But I can see potential in all three rifles . I just shot better with the 452 Trainer than I did the other two . I suspect the lighter trigger may have helped .
I had planned on shooting the 452 with a bipod , but when I tried it , the rifle was too low to be comfortable , so I removed it and shot it off the bags .

The score for the 452 will be it’s entry for November .
I’ll try to improve on the other two before the end of the month .
