I will be shooting at 100yrds. I have looked at square, round, diamond and just about any combination of these and do not know which way to go and how to affectively use them to help ensure consistent point of aim.

Any suggestions on what type of target and how to properly use it, I know the crosshairs are to cover what I intend to shoot but am looking for a more technical method with a certain style of target.

For instance I have heard some say use a circle and quarter it up, some say use a diamond and use the 4 points to align your crosshairs etc…

Let me have it

Thanks

BTW: I have a computer at work and a printer with some 11x17 sheets of paper waiting on me to print myself up some targets.

I like the big red dot target from Targetz.com. It has a very large red area, 2", in the center, and lines around it to help you line things up. Very consistent POA with it and most optics I've tried, everything from an ACOG to an EOTECH.

To sight in a gun this would probably be the easiest. I would think you could make them fairly easy. https://secure.armysurplusforless.com/productView.php?id=652

Rifles are sighted just testing some handloads and was wondering the pro and cons of different styles of targets and the best use of a certain style to help point of aim to be as consistant as possible.

for 100 yard shooting w/ a scope, 3" circles are fine. i do not like diamonds at all.

the target i make for myself for sighting in and long range load development uses squares. four 1.5" squares make up the large square, and i leave 1" between each of the small squares. i put a 1" open circle (can't be seen thru the scope) at 1" and 2" high. i like it the best.
