ridway rifle club is the place to shoot silhouette. some of the best well run matches i have shot.I've attended the earlier regional lever match at Rigway, it is a lot of fun. The 22lr works reasonably well on pistol cartridge targets, with the exception of the rams... any headwind, and you'll have a lot of ringers. But I would give it a try anyway, I did on my first time around, just to get my feet wet and had lots of fun despite the ringers.
I'm planning to attend the lever regional, nationals (both SB and HP), the sierra classic and maybe the super shoot... 10 matches, in two days... Brutal!!!
I have noticed not a lot of posts about silhouette too, here and at other sites. I have been shooting more matches than ever before in the past couple of years. Thirty matches already this year! Mostly all three calibers of lever action silhouette with 1/5 scale mixed in. The offhand online matches right here have been a huge help for improving offhand skills and identifying bad habits. Offhand shooting is difficult and good scores cannot be bought;this is both a curse (low participation)and a blessing (work and practice pays off). Be well and shoot from your hind legs.Will someone chat about silhouette?
I’ve seen no post as yet.
Lapua Monarch Cup is a go.
Only 2 Nationals so far.
USA at Ridgway
Mexico the other.
Sorry to our Canadian shooters for now.
Where did the Georgia state match thread disappear to??? I thought I saw it here just the other day and now it is hiding? Does anyone have details, like contact info? I went to the GSSA website, but it's currently down...
For ~$200 you could get a full (ten each) set of small bore 1/5th silhouette targets. Split the cost with your buddies and everyone wins.The silhouette match here requires 6mm or more to ensure targets are knocked over. I have thousands of rds of 5.56 but no major stash of .308, and it would cost us close to $200 each in ammo for a match.
So I print scaled down targets on paper and we plink at them @ 50yds with our 10/22 match rifle.
My local club for high power runs an AR15/similar rifles along the high power match. Everything is set at 200m with targets scaled down. It's a lot of fun. Unfortuneatly, it's still really hard to get people out.There is a group working on a 223/556 silhouette match rule set at reduced targets, for both ARs and bolt guns. I am all for it
The club has what they have and their rules. I'm in no position to propose any changes. It has a several year waiting list, and significant cost to join, but matches are open to anyone with a minor entry fee.For ~$200 you could get a full (ten each) set of small bore 1/5th silhouette targets.

Would that club be in Va? Seems like I saw something about a match in Va using reduced scale targets at 200yds. It's been a few years back, but I would consider driving out to one of these fun matches. You should list your clubs match dates and times here, maybe that will bump up attendance.My local club for high power runs an AR15/similar rifles along the high power match.
