    I started shooting the range informal local league two weeks ago for the second year. We shoot 10 weeks with a different target every week and vary between 100/200/300yds. For the second year I am shooting a 223. This year is a Savage model 11 Action with Accutrigger fitted with a Model 12 Target trigger spring, Model 12 heavy Varmint barrel, Boyd's At-One Thumbhole stock topped with an Athlon Argos 8-34X56.

    First weeks target shot at 100yds, Timed, with shooters required to shoot one round robin then get up from the bench, move to the rear and touch the wall then shoot the next round robin, repeat. Target scored as 135/200 points.

    Week two target shot at 200yds, Untimed. Unofficial score 171/200

    Week three is the same format IBS 300yd target. Then we move on to the fun odd targets.

    So, am I correct in assuming these are 4 shots for score at 5 target spots with bottom right as a sighter?

    If so…

    Looks like you would have started the day pretty confident last week at 200! Doesn’t get much more centered than that!

    Week one, did you have a zero offset, or were you fighting wind?

    How did you end up among the pack each week?

    Nice. Thanks for posting.

    "Round Robin" means a) load 4 rounds, then shoot 4 timed rounds on the same target, get up, then 4 rounds on the next target or b) load 5 rounds, then shoot 1 round on each target, get up, then repeat? Week 1 is timed, and there are 3 rounds on targets 1, 4 and 5, so I'm guessing "a" is correct. Either way, congrats & enjoy.

    Week one was not a good start. First the last time I shot was sighted for 200yds. so my dope proved correct and was able to move the elevation with no problem. Windage I am still confused a bit as the last time I shot there was no wind and this first week there was also no wind. So unsure how I got so far right. I moved 2 clicks and it didn't seem to change. Since week one I have swapped scopes! Seems to have helped.

    Score first week; me, 135/200. Leader 196/200
    Unofficial score week 2; me 171/200. leader 198/200. I'm may behind but there folks have much more experience than I do and most are shooting custom target rifles. Official score should be posted tonight.

    In this case Round Robin is one shot into each target. Get up then repeat. So this week one was 20 shots within one 15min shooting cycle with the interruption to go back and touch the wall..

    As a comparison Last year week one I shot a 160/200 as to a 135/200 this year.
    Last year week two was 127/200, unofficial 171/200 this year.

    Week 3 target. Official score is 155 after a 10 point penalty for shooting a wrong target. If you look you can see sub target 4 only has 3 holes. So this week I was 7 points below the person in front of me and 6 points ahead of the person behind me. There were 4 shooters with a score of 190 or better with the high score being a 197/200.

    Next week we move onto the fun stuff. 100yds, First 2 shots are 1.250" circle with a .5" black bull cold bore. 25pts for the bull and 10 points for inside the circle. Finish with 5 shots inside of three diminishing sized circles with an all or nothing score. Meaning all 5 shots are to be inside the circle or there is no score awarded.
