    Eligible Rifles
    -ANY caliber rimfire firearm, including 22 WMR and 17 cal. Edit:You may enter a target for as many firearms as you would like, including handguns

    Sights: Any sights are allowed. There are separate divisions for scoped rifles and iron sighted rifles.

    Target: http://www.reloadbench.com/pdf/files/2 inch circles on grid.pdf

    Range: 25 yards for Iron sights Rifles
    50 yards for Scoped Rifles
    25 yards for Scoped Handguns
    25 feet for iron sighted Handguns


    Position- anyway you want, from Benched to Horseback and anything in between.

    Shots: 5 shots per Bullseye (25 total)

    Scoring: 1 point for each shot touching or in the back. 5 points for each shot completely inside the white center circle. 5 points for each shot that can be completely covered by a quarter. A perfect score would be 50 for each bull.

    example: three shots clearly in the white and two on the black =17 + three (any) holes completely covered by a quarter for 15 more points = 32 points.

    Post your results;
    Name
    Rifle
    Sighting system
    Distance(25 yards for irons, 50 yards for scopes)
    Position
    Score (Count all 5 bulls)

    Some did not enter the last match because the weren't able to upload pictures. Pictures are NOT required. This is "The High Road" and everyone here is an honest person right? Pictures are good and if you do shoot a 250 we'll all want to see it so you can snail mail it to me and I'll post it for you.

    Post scores by November 2, 2008 which is the official end of the match

    Have fun, be safe!

    Well, I shot this target this evening with both Eley Tenex and Lapua Midas. The Lapua was more consistent in my Kimber, but then again I turned the scope down to 6X when I shot the Lapua and that seemed to help with the focus. On 8X at 50 yds the Leupold will not clearly put the cross hairs on the same optical plane as the target. I may run some more Tenex on this again at 6X. Anyway it's a moot point because both ammo's shot perfect 250pt targets from prone with a sling.

    So my entry for bolt action scoped 50 yard, shot from prone with a Kimber Model 82 Govt' mounting a Leupold VX-III 2.5-8X36.

    250 total points out of 250 total points possible. All shots in the center white ring, all covered (easily) by a quarter.

    I then shot this same target at 25 yds with the aperture sights that originally came with the rifle. By this time I was out of Lapua Midas, and Eley Tenex so CCI Green Tag got the nod. This was fired from prone with a sling again.

    250 points possible, 250 points scored. All easily covered with a quarter and in the white circle. This target is easier to shoot with aperture sights than with a scope in my opinion. These shots were fired nearly as fast as I could load and reacquire the target. Lots of fun!

    P.S. Forgive the top right target, I was using a box to hold loose ammo in and I lost count and shot the top right either six or seven times. Either way they are all in the top scoring ring so can we just count five of them?:scrutiny:

    Can you shoot multiple rifles for scoring or just one gun? Is a rimfire pistol allowed or no?

    I don't see why you couldn't use more than one rimfire on this course.

    I just used the same rifle, because I only own one .22 rifle. I have both a scope and aperture sights for it, so that is what I used.

    You'll have to ask JustSayMo about rimfire pistols, as they are not mentioned. Although I have a pistol I would be happy to run if possible.

    HR, yes. Enter as many rimfire firearms as you would like. We give separate recognition for Bolts, autos, pumps, levers singleshots and handguns

    Looks like CoalDragger set the bar way high right out of the gate. WOW! We may need to move you out to 100 yards! That is some fine shooting! I had considered giving a bonus for field positions but that would have made your score off the charts! WELL DONE!!!

    To everyone else, don't feel like you need to be perfect to enter. I'd be happy with half of Coal Dragger's score. The whole point is to get us shooting and sharing in the fun. Heck, you might even learn something too!

    I don't have a bench rest available to me, and the place I have to shoot is so overgrown with grass that I have to shoot prone from the bed of my pick-up. Oh well, honestly I probably shoot better prone than I do off of a bench rest anyway. I just practice it so much more I am comfortable with it.

    For those shooting this target, especially with a scope make sure to not use too much magnification unless you have an adjustable objective. If I ran too much magnification I couldn't get my cross hairs to focus, and it seemed like I was dealing with some parallax issues.

    Also there is a big difference in ammo consistency, use match ammo if you can find it. Good luck, I know someone will post tighter groups!

    I'll have to shoot my Benelli MP-95 for this. Too bad I don't have any optics for it to do both. Oh well.

    Just picked up an Older Ruger Single Six from an estate sale, unconverted. I printed up a target and gave her a go.

    Greetings Everyone!
    First time post here. I was at the range yesterday when one of my buddies handed me this target and said "fire away". I enjoyed it quite a bit though it is a bity little donut at 50 yds.

    4of6
    Remington 541X
    Lyman 90MJT rear Lyman 20MJT front
    50yds
    prone
    181

    I'm not sure I got the score worked right. I used CMP AGSVGE419 (Aguila GE Target) ammo.
    Like I said, I enjoyed this. I expect I'll try this again this Sunday with my "bity little donut" rifle.

    It sure is. The good news is, iron sighted rifles can shoot at 25yd. Unless you just like the challenge.

    I shot one last night (at 25yd) but pulled a couple of shots out of the bull. Must be bad ammo. :D I'll keep trying.

    Here we go!!!

    Hi All
    Well I may have to put the Skinner back on the M39 for this one. Have to stretch my local range to get 25yd. The 50yd is about 20mi away and is not easy to frequent but will try. Fun time for all.
