    This one is open to any and EVERY .17HMR/HM2 caliber rimfire rifle. This match is meant to be challenging and FUN. Hopefully it will get you out to the range and shooting your rifle.

    You may enter with multiple rifles.

    Print this target:

    http://www.reloadbench.com/pdf/files/Inside Out Game.pdf

    Scoring
    Take ONE shot at each dot, for a total of 15 shots. The hole touching or inside largest dot is worth one point. The slightly smaller dot below it is worth 2 points, the dot below it is worth 3 points, the dot below it is worth 4 points and the smallest dot on the bottom is worth 5 points. 45 total points are possible.

    And to make this a little more interesting... IF ALL five shots in one of the vertical columns are CLEARLY FULLY inside the black a bonus of 10 extra points per column will be awarded. 30 possible bonus points + 45 = perfect 75 score

    Range
    50 yards for iron sights and non-magnified optics and red dots

    100 yards for any Scope or Magnified sighting device.

    Position Any

    Additional Categories we can hammer out what is what if there is any doubt.
    -Unlimited/Target Rifles
    -Sporting Class Bolts and single shots
    -Autoloaders
    -Pumps
    -Levers

    If you can't get a picture of your target up let me know and I will help get one up.

    -Forum name or name you want posted in the results
    -Rifle, make, model, vintage if known
    -Sights
    -Ammo
    -Position
    -Distance
    -Conditions (outdoors, windy, temperature...)

    If you have any sugestions to make this competition better let me know. I don't have any experience with the .17HM2 so I don't know how it stacks up against the .17HMR. If you all think the distance is to far let me know and we will see about changing it. I didn't get a chance to test the target at 100 yards but I did do it at 50 yards and it was way to easy.

    Thanks to justsaymo for the rules!

    Its a sticky now!!!!!

    We are going to see who as more skill, the .22lr guys, or the .17 guys... I'll almost bet that we will have some better targets with .22, just because we don't expect the rifle to do all the shooting:neener:

    Great, just in time. The temperature dropped to well below freezing, some well into the negatives, and it is snowing randomly. I hate march.

    Where is everyone?

    Looks like Monday will be a good day for shooting this competition here in Iowa.

    I have been waiting to see if anyone will put up a score, but looks like I may compete against myself.

    There sure was alot of people wanting to compete with their .17hmr's in the rim fire competition when everyone had a .22. Why wont you all compete against another .17hmr?
