Monthly Shootout: January 2018 - Winter Wonderland

Post by JaxTeller » Sun Jan 07, 2018 5:41 pm

FIRST RULE: NO RULES! - yeah, this is totally fun. And let us keep it that way. No prizes. No trophies - not even the participation kind. So there. Let us be clear.

Shoot as many targets as you like, as many shots as you like. 100, 200 yard or more with a .204 Ruger. 25 and 50 yard with any rimfire caliber of your choice.*


Supply your own targets or buy 'em at your local gun shop. As long as it has a well defined center/bullseye. If you are cheap like me, use a paper plate and a red marker. That is good enough. No mailing in. No waiting on targets. You can remain anonymous, and all we'll see is your screen name.


There are some good old standards IF you want to try to be in a match up. 5 shots at 25 & 50 yards and 3 shots at 100 (or more) yds. That is only a suggestion - it is NOT a rule!!

List your guns and ammo - so our members and others know what you were shooting.

Also note front or rear rests when used, bipod, bags, lead sled etc.

It's not a rule - just a fact - a hole in a target is going to count! 6 holes is 6 holes - NO throw a ways!

Similar optics and distances will be compiled as groups - SCORING & ALL shooters will be included in the monthly 'report'.

Post a picture (or scan) of the target you want to submit with the measurement below - use calipers, a ruler or use "On Target"

Download here (a great tool) >>>>http://www.ontargetshooting.com/download1.html<<<<

DEADLINE for shooting is Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 @ midnight. Submit your scores by Sunday, February 4th, 2018 @ midnight.

PLEASE post (in text) any information about gun, ammo, optics and score - THIS makes the report a lot smoother. Cut-and-Paste REALLY helps with scoring. (Sample below)

Please include a photo of the gun used (range pics a plus as well!) - We LOVE photos!

On to a final few things:

Scoring:


Score your group in inches. Then measure distance from bulls-eye to your furthest shot. Add these two. That is your score for that target.

List your score like this: ---

Any Brand Rifle .204 Ruger, 22"
Front and rear bags
3 shots
100 yards
Nikon Acculon Glass 3-9 X 40 Scope
32gr Hornady V-max Ammo
Far shot: .370
Group: .293
Total: 0.663"

I would love to go out and shoot - but it has been brutally cold around here. A bit too early. The last week has constant seen around -15F on most nights. Today was nice when we hit 30. No range time this month I think... but who knows. Strange things happen.

No, "Stranger Things" is happening. Just saying.
