Answer . . .

Take as many shots as you want at the two sigher bulls in the middle and take one shot at each of the 10 record bulls. IF there is a wind change during your record string, you probably should take a shot or two at one of the sighter bulls to see how far the wind is drifting your bullet. You have a couple of choices: Wait 'till your favored wind comes back or hold off in the opposite direction of the wind drift.

Wow! I am even more confused now. Is there a link to the rules and how this match is shot some where? Is it that you shoot as many shots as you can in 20 minutes? Whitch is the sighter bull? Is that the one dead center that is 10? Thanks Dale

Go here and read information in the STICKIES.
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...play.php?f=263

Then download a copy of the target. Green or Black, your preference.
Be sure to set it at 100%. If you have a problem, make sure you are downloading it with the Adobe Reader. Print at 100%.

Then open the first post below the Stickies:
"POST your MARCH 25 Yd. 10 Shot Match Scores here . . ."

At the top of that thread is the rules for the match.
Read the rules (Twice). Shoot some targets, and . . .
Post your Best Score in that thread.
Post a picture of your target, if you know how, but that is not important.

Have fun at the range:

Joe :-)

One shot each . . .

Roger:

Because the scoring rings are so close together on the USBR target, it would be difficult to score if two or more shots touch each other and cut out a section of the scoring ring between them. So: ONE shot at each bull.

Always use a scoring gauge on a shot if you are not sure if the bullet hole touches a scoring ring. If you would measure a bullet hole from edge to edge of the grease ring, you would find it measures between about .214" and .218". The scoring gauge measures .224". You can some times gain a point when using the scoring gauge.

If you don't have a scoring gauge yet, you can get one from Hughes Precision in Indian River Michigan.

Susan and her Husband Bob have a CNC Machine Shop and they shoot rimfire benchrest with us at our club in Sault Sainte Marie.

One more thing . . .

When you score the target:
1. Add up the 10s, 9s, 8s, 7s etc.
2. Write down the score.
3. Go back and add up the number of 10s that are X's.
4. Write down the X count behind the score.
5. Like this 98-3x or 99-7x or 100-10x

Joe :-)

Talking IBS Sporter BR

The 10 ring and dot on that target were taken from the IBS 100 yard Hunter Rifle target. 1/2 inch in diameter. WAY to big for rimfire at 50 yards. The USBR target has a 10 ring that is 1/10 inch.

I have seen some of our local shooter "scared off" after trying the USBR target at 50 yards. That is why we started shooting matches at 25 yards.

Because of that "scare" factor: Here is a suggestion for you. How about getting some of your friends out to the range and have them shoot some matches on those IBS targets. They will be pleased with their scores. Don't show them that USBR target until they have developed some skills on the IBS.

I know . . . It's sneeky, but it should work.

Joe :-)
We shoot the IBS targets at 50yds with sporter rifles at our club. Max weight 7.5 pounds w 6.5x max scope. No bedding allowed, lightened factory trigger is allowed. Here in Kansas we seldom have calm winds. Rarely someone cleans the target.
