    You have a better view of the target than I do but from what I can see I would call that a 21-0X? I'm not familiar enough with the rifle I'm sure someone else can chime in does that fall under the target or sporting class? I am assuming optics division based on the 50yards. Nice work and as Mav said, thanks for kicking it off.

    Looks more like a 20-0X to me, but I can't tell for sure. The rifle would qualify for the Sporting Class.

    Sounds like fun!
    I'd head out today, but it's -8°F here right now. :eek:

    Nothing sitting still here in South Central Kansas either! Round 1 of this honker dropped a half a foot of snow which then thawed enough to get slushy. Now, it's in the high 20's and that's all frozen. Round 2 gonna dump a bit more and then round 3 out of the Arizona, New Mexico area arrives about morning commute time. We need much more moisture, but not as a blizzard!!

    The real duckies are hiding right now with their heads tucked under their wings!

    If I was getting snowed on in sub-freezing temps I'd probably quit sitting around and head south too. :p

    Just so I will know, I have quite a few good shooting 22's. One is a box stock Ruger 10/22T. With it having a factory heavy barrel what class would it fall in? It is the only 10/22 I own that is unmodified from factory. Also, is a Remington 40x with Redfield front & rear sights a stock or custom?

    hueyville, the 40X would definitely fall into the Target Class, the Ruger rides the fence, but as long as it doesn't include a trigger job I think it's safe to put it in with the Sporting rifles. Just keep in mind that the optics are limited in said class and rests (save for shooting stick(s)) are not permitted. If desired you can always move up to the Target Class regardless of the rifle's specifications.

    I'm really not happy with the results but the weather has been wet lately and haven't had a chance to redo it.

    Unlimited/Target class. Rifle is a Savage FV-SR in a Boyd's thumbhole stock topped with a Bushnell Banner 6-24x40. I have attached an AAC Pilot II and shooting CCI sub-sonic 22 LR HP. I was shooting prone with a bipod.

    I'd like to try again. I know I can do better. But like I said earlier in the thread, I had no idea how small these things actually are.

    I am a lil slow so going to ask a little more clarification. So if I stick a true 1x red dot site on the factory 10/22t I shoot it at 25 yards. If I scope it I shoot it at 50 yards, either way it is a stock gun. The 40x is a target class and shoots at 25 yards with irons. If I pull another tuned rifle with a scope it is a Target class at 50 yards. 25 only shooting sticks, 50 can be off sandbags. Is shooting indoors permissible? I have 25 yard range at work and shoot 50 rounds minimum of 22 every day. Is this a keep shooting till end of session and post best result per class even if you try a dozen targets per day for a month? Want to be clear so as to not be a cheater.

    Hueyville, right for the most part. No matter the rifle/class all magnified optics are at 50yards, all non magnified (including your mentioned 1x red dot) are at 25 yards. If you want to post in the "Sporting" class with a stock rifle you can Not use bags, bipods or rests at any distance. You may use shooting sticks. If By Choice You want to use bags bipods or a rest you can opt to "upgrade" into the Target division with your sporting / stock gun. Also yes this is a shoot it as many times as you want and post as many targets as you want as you improve until the end of the match.

    Hope this helps clear up your questions. Happy shooting!

    I am pretty clear but one teeny question left. Commercially made shooting sticks or can we use home built custom units? It may be easier to break out the Anshutz and just shoot standing unsupported at 25 yards. You have been a great help sir.

    Either commercial or home made are fine. I had to double check this myself when I started as I have a pair of "table top" shooting sticks that I needed to know were allowed. Happy to help, and happy to see more people getting interested. The weather kept me from getting out last time I was home (I work away) but I'll have the 21st of march to the end of the match to try and get my holes punched. I enter the Sporting iron sights and sporting optics class. No target guns yet. Good luck.

    Rimfire match

    Got a break before more snow tomorrow. Shot a couple of targets, one with a Winchester 52 pre-A with a older Bushnell BL 10X scope using RWS Target ammo, and one with a CZ452 Varmint with a 6x24 CenterPoint using SK Std Target ammo. Looks like a 16 and 20. :banghead:

    Nice shooting guys. I can't wait to get out and shoot this one. Zgunner, from what I can tell in the picture that "5" is not an "X" as it appears to break the white ring. Maybe Maverick can weigh in for clarification.

    Ooh. Ok I guess I read the instructions wrong. Well darn, might as well just scrap the whole mess of it then.

    hueyville, Centurian22 got it right on all counts. To add to what he stated, you are permitted to shoot indoors.

    Yep, you have to "thread the hole" for an X to be awarded (it's is a tight fit with a .22cal. projectile, but it is possible).

    I don't know if I would do that, the "X" is all but impossible on this target, I just added it for a possible tie-breaker.

    :)

    Awfully glad to see this is still up and running. looks like I'll be able to play once again!
    My work load has finally started to lessen and that should free up some time to get to the range on the weekends! Just in time for a challenging target I see. LoL
    Thanks for keeping this going Mav. I'll be posting my targets soon.

    I think I have this scored right. I'm dissapointed but it's the best I could do given the weather.

    I think this may be a 7 but it doesn't matter much.

    RBH44 was that last one shot with a Buckmark pistol (which is fine BTW) or rifle? If that was the former, then that is some fine marksmanship (and it's not bad for a rifle with irons).

    Mav,
    Thanks, but..
    I shot it with a Buckmark pistol just for the fun of it. To be honest, the back stop paced off at just over 22yrds.( it was the closest I could get to 25yrds.) and I did shoot indoor bullseye for over 10 yrs.
