I don’t even care if we can’t, I’m just dying to see a target from this Wundherguun.
As to not further hijack thus thread I'll start another titled Rimfire prove it. Print the target, scale to fit an 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper. 3 shots per bull, total 12 shots / 120 points. 50 yards, any sight, any position. NO LEAD SLEDS or BENCH REST BIPODS.
Do you mean no mechanical rest? Or can a guy not use a bipod at all?
Standard bipod is ok. Wide legged style bipod used in bench rest is a no go. Or should we just go with front and rear bags only.
Its our challenge
I am good with a standard bipod and rear bag. That is what I use.
Post results in new thread.
I apologize to the OP for our hijacking of your thread.
In your search for a rifle stop at the new thread for results.
I think skylerbone is abit worried maybe my papoose may put on a show or my henry lol
I’ve put plenty of rounds down a Henry 001 and I was far from impressed for the dollars per accuracy quotient. In the hands of a better rifleman than me it didn’t stand a chance against most of my bolt sporters. Not that it matters, you’ll be shooting your Papoose. No worry here.
lol well you'll need the best you can bring plus your highest dollar ammo to stay up with me...
Let your target do the bragging for you, stranger. You’ve been asked a dozen times here about a mystery competition that you “heard about” from an old man, which you then “witnessed”, and you’re still dodging the question “what competition”. Now your new rifle, not involved with winning anything, with you who have won nothing, is suddenly Thor’s Hammer and you’ll be showing us all? I’m not feeding trolls any longer. Time to nut up or shut up.
It’s laughable when so many folks tout the virtues of the lower priced rifle against custom rifles - absolutely forgetting a reality of economics. While the reverse is not true, those of us who can afford custom rifles can also afford the cheap ones - so we’ve seen the difference first hand. Many of us started with cheap factory rifles, found them lacking - because they are - and only spent the extra money on higher priced models, or custom rifles, to close those inefficiencies we saw first hand.
My first indoor rifle was a borrowed Winny 52, followed by another borrowed aperture sighted Annie. My club-mates wouldn’t let me compete with any of the rifles I owned, because they weren’t competitive. The first one I purchased was a Vostok Ural, because I couldn’t afford an Annie or Winny. Even as an entry level rifle in the same league as the other precision built, purpose designed rifles, it still only let me hang with the group, not really compete.
Smallbore indoor - a few targets pictured above by other shooters/members - uses a 10 ring a bit smaller diameter than a pencil eraser and a DOT for the X which is about the size of a dot a mechanical pencil would make if dropped vertically on the page. I practiced a lot with my factory/standard/cheap rifles in those early days, doing a lot of wood working and bondo work to make a cheap rifle FEEL like a 3/4 position rifle. When you take off the shooting jacket and start talking about stuff like Rimfire silhouette, a 452/455 can hang, but you won’t see a Marlin semi-auto on a firing line outside of a local club level match. The entire premise is just silly.
Horses for courses - I like my Papoose rifles for camping and kayaking, that’s about it. The Ruger 10/22 takedown is proving to be more reliable, better mags, better aftermarket, and more accurate, however. For NRL-22 matches, I have a worked over Savage Mark II, and wish every match it was a Voodoo or 40x. If our local smallbore club is still running when my boy gets old enough, he’ll be shooting an Annie or Win 52. But his Marlin 60 works great for him (at 4yoa) for water bottles at 50yrds, standing off of sticks.
Actually the A36, 12 bull, 50ft indoor, 4 position target - the 10 "ring" is the dot. The first ring approx the diameter of a .22 hole is the 9 ring. Real easy to drop a shot or two (or three ) into the 9.
That’s actually what I thought, but it’s been about 6yrs since I had shot it. I was talking with another guy about 4 months ago and he was CERTAIN the dot was the X, but I remembered thinking - no, the dot is the 10, but he was current in competition, while I was years out.
When I was shooting indoor competition in college, I rode my bike everywhere, and we shot under the Military Science building on campus at K-Sate. You might imagine I raised a lot of eyebrows, riding my bicycle onto campus with a rifle strapped down the front fork.
And yes - VERY easy dropping those points. I had knee surgeries in high school and again in college, so my scores usually weren’t as easy to identify, sometimes even out of order (prone, standing, kneeling) - I just couldn’t build good position without my knees screaming at me, so I spent all of my practice time trying to be sure I didn’t lose anything standing.
yep skylerbone you are the troll and all mouth but that's fine I've met many like you and have taken their money when the match was over and no we either shoot at a match live or nothing at all and well looks like I win as I know you won't man up and lets see who is the better shot!!
p.s. if you can strike matches with a 22 then come see me but if not, your wasting my time....
