take the weapon you shoot with best, or better yet your carry weapon if you carry
shoot a bunch of the correct size/style target for your caliber etc., whatever you want just so they are legal targets
post the best one here,
or if you have a good one handy, post that if you want.

Three three shot groups at 200 yards from my 700 Police using Black Hills 75 Gr BTHP ammo. Groups were fired off a bipod rest which was in turn resting on my old 1980 Monte Carlo. I think I shot about 40 groups that day trying to get five on one target that were roughly this size. I was unsuccessful. Only these three groups are worthy of posting. Far left group looks close to .5 MOA to me. Right group is right at about one MOA.
Going back a bit farther, this is the very first target I ever shot at 100 yards with one of my own rifles. It was with an H&R Ultra Varmint .223 heavy barrel shooting some Coyote brand ammo. This was the initial shooting at 100 yards after being bore-sighted. Far right shot was the first, the remainder were walking it over. The upper left shot was my fault.
No digicam, shot tonight with G34 on NRA B-8 25yd pistol bull at 25 yds. First set of the evening was 25 shots for a score of 223-4x. After doing some other dinking around to include the typical IPSC goon fast and fancy and shooting my Nagant I shot one more set, this time 15 rounds of EFMJ +p I was getting rid of, 10 rounds of magtech range junk. The EMFJ is ok accurate, flies a little higher as can be expected. 224-5x. At least I'm consistent.

Not even sure where most of my target pics are!! I usually scan a target but often save to stupid places.!!
Did find this one tho from a while back ..... it was with my Win 94 in .357 ... homeloads .... 158 Lyman gas check SWC in front of 14 grns Vit N 110 ...... a load i like.
Considering the short barrel .... I thought it was quite acceptable really for 100 yds ... coupla ''fliers'' ..... mostly my fault ..... it is scoped tho so quite easy to get on target.

This is the only one I have a pic of. Maybe there's a reason for that? :rolleyes:

This target was blasted from about 15 yards with my P22, after it became reliable. This target was the victim of more than 200 rounds of .22. Most of the outlying shots were fired DA. I just can't seem to get used to first shot DA no matter what I try. Well, at least they all hit the target.
700VS .308, U.S. Optics ST-10, FGM 168gr SMK, 100yds, 3 shot groups, 38 degrees, 10 mph from 8:00. Center group is in the .3"s.
Has done a little better with handloads.

Here's one from my last trip to the range.
Gun: SA Mil-Spec 1911A1
Ammo: 230gr. UMC FMJ .45 ACP
# of rounds: 15
Distance: 5 yards
POI a little low. Still getting used to the sights and the new gun:D
This one is from about two months ago. Seven shots from my Kimber Pro Carry, again standing and shooting offhand, this time at 25 feet. I decided to leave well enough alone and moved on to a fresh target.

Today, rotating carry ammo, primary carry, clean gun loaded with 230 gr Hydra-Shoks, from the draw at 8 yds. 6X, 1 flyer.

10 meter air target from sectionals last year. 5 shots, wanna guess which one was the 5th?
No doubt there a lots of folks who could do better...but that is pretty good for me.

Here is a group that I fired one evening after class. THR members Chris Rhines, Ian, and PUMC TomG were all there. There is a .45 ACP round there for scale. I didn't use a jacket or any other aid besides my rifle, the earth, and my sling.

Position: Prone with M1907 Sling
Rifle: Kimber .22 Hunter
Sights: Leupold VX-II 3-9x40mm (set at 3x)

This target was shot with A TRW M1A in .308Win, with a B&L 10X Tactical scope, set up as an M21.Target was a .38spl case taped to a target and set up at 200 yards.I told my shooting partner I'd take it out with one round.This rifle would routinely do this.But the idiot that I am, I sold it to buy a Rem700PSS .:(

This target was the first one shot with the new AICS kit I installed my PSS action in.The last shot I knew didn't feel good as soon as the trigger broke.But now the rifle is all tuned up, and any bad targets are my fault.;) The rifle will shoot a constistant .5 MOA when I'm doing my part.
Distance was 100 meters.
The best target I ever shot was in our sniper Championships a few years back.My partner and I won the 300 meter relay by shooting a 10 round group(5 shots each) center bull that you could cover with a quarter.Sadly, the cadets manning the butts threw out all the targets at the end of the match.:mad:
