Jan. 2022 50 Yard Iron Sight Shoot

I see this shoot as a place where we may keep track of our own shooting improvements, compare our shooting abilities with our fellow shooters, and to brag a little.

OK, lets start:
Iron Sight (Globe & Peep)
Matches start on the first day of each month and end on the last day of the month. Scores to be reported by the 2nd- 4th day of the following month. A Score Bulletin with all shooters names posted on the 4th or 5th day of the following month.
TARGETS TO BE USED IN THIS MATCH: NRA A 23/5 target. Note: This target is only for 50 yards. Five shots are fired at each bull for a total possible score of 200-20X.

Ammunition is shoot what you have.
Optical front lens are permitted but limited to 1.5X. Shooters may use tube extensions on either their front or rear sights as long as they do not contain any optical magnification and the extensions do not form one solid tube between sights; i.e., there must be a distinguishable distance between the front and rear tubes making them separate. Shooters may use any type or color of front sight insert (clear, amber, etc.) and after market eyepieces or discs on their rear sight (Merit, Hadley, Gehmann, etc.) as long as the inserts or discs do not offer any optical magnification.

From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 50 yards.
You may shoot on an indoor range, please note it when post your score.

The let's not:
have any rail guns, or benchrest stocks. Any rifle with a benchrest type stock or a custom action or a factory action that has been "blueprinted" will not be allowed in this class. A benchrest stock is one that has a forend with a flat bottom, more than 2.7 inches wide, and/or has the bottom of the buttstock parallel or near parallel to the bottom of the forend. Bench Rest Blocks (plates attached to the accessory rail or stock) are not permitted.
At the end of the year (early January) I will compile all of a persons scores divided by 12 (months in a year) and post a yearly score.
I would like for everyone to report their score and equipment information as follows

Example:
Your name or screen name, Rifle, ammo, score
Equipment list (rest front/rear, any thing special about your setup)
Weather/or shot indoors
Excuses: Anything you would like us to know about your shooting day.
Would be nice if you could post a photo of your setup.

The "HOW TO SCORE"


Dec. 2021 Scores
Shorty123, Rem. 540X, SK+, 200-15x
Ken_N, Anschutz 64 mpr, Eley Match, 200-13x

I have a question for the folks shooting the 50 yd A-23/5 target.

Do you shoot the bulls in any particular order? I have wondered about the impact of this, and another thread prompted me to ask here. The other thread recommended for bipod shooting to shoot the targets in vertical columns before moving over to the next column.

I have fallen into the habit of shooting the 4 bulls on this target in the order of (2,1,4,3) as they are numbered on the target.

I start with the top row right, then top left.
Move down to the bottom row right, then bottom left.

Do you shoot this target always in a particular order?

Shoot in what ever order you want. Just be honest.

By the way WELCOME.

I don't think I will be shooting any 50 yarders during the Winter. Our weather has taken a nosedive. Sure do wish some of the old regulars would return too.

48-1X, 49-2X, 46-1X, 48-1X : 191-5X
SK Rifle Match ammo

First match in some months. My vision in my right eye has been deteriorating for some time and I found that my left eye is fine. So, this match I got around the other side of the rifle, shooting left-handed. Trigger control, holding steady were new and unfamiliar, but I managed to keep all the shots on the target.

Glad to see you back Ed. I missed about 7 years myself. The old bullet trap had rotted away. I was surprised to see many of the regulars had dropped away. Maybe it will pick up again come spring time.

Good shooting guys, I’m jealous of your weather. We are digging out from the blizzard yesterday.

With winter here I’m stocking up on targets and ammo, and I bought my first bore scope, so I will be trying to get rid of the carbon ring I can see now.

It’ll be a few more months till I get out again, but I enjoy seeing the scores and targets here.
