Rocket science, huh?
Tell him about how people posit on “Momentum” and “Kinetic Energy” on this site, and he’ll probably not want to visit
But I can still outshoot him
Congrats on getting out and shooting, those are nice set ups!
hopefully well all start filtering in with posts and pictures soon....I took my dad and a co-worker out to shoot longrange today, otherwise id have been doing this one. HOPEFULLY, i can sneak away in the next few days and get some shooting in.
I thought in the original ( or maybe it was a different challenge ) we gave the option of blacking out a set of targets staple the black out over a regular and shoot through. I know I need a 4" black bull to shoot at 50 yds with irons
That was an option in the original posting, id actually forgotten till i went back and read thru the thread. That would probably be a good option as well, ill have to try it. Im pretty sure i tried shooting these with my buckmark and decided it wasnt going to happen so didnt do it....why exactly i cant remember.
Im inclined to say yes.....At least for this shoot.
Re-zeroed my 22s to 50 yds and took a poke at the closest thing I had to the correct targets. May revisit this another day.
Bottom target was my Henry Hoo1 with a $20 tasco on it, top target was an untouched Rossi RS22. Aguila 40 gr. 'super extra' ammo.
My humble groups:
Had a hell of a time even seeing these targets with the irons on the Rossi.
Good job getting out & shooting it. I want to try the challenge with my humble accumulation of Marlin/Glenfield rimfires. I was thinking about getting a rest. I've never really been one to shoot off of a rest other than zeroing scopes. I think I may imitate yours. I like it.
You can shoot the irons at 25yds or color in the bulls like @ford8nr suggested. I still havent gotten to go shoot (actually sent some of my guns to the range with a buddy today because i cant go lol), but i want to try both methods this time around.
L-R: FrankenRuger, Marlin 7000T, Remington Model 5, old Marlin 25N.
Made it to the range (I was RSO-ing anyway), too:
Plan was to run a boresnake through each 5 times to "clean out" the lube from whatever I'd previously use, then sight all in with RWS Target Rifle and then shoot for record. I have no idea if any of these guns like this ammo. Anyway, half-way through the snakeing I was interrupted by a call to deal with a presumed crisis (non-TFL related), so I packed it all up without firing a shot. I'll try again next week.
Yeah i think the 10/22 deserves a reshoot, the a22 seems to do pretty well with that Winchester stuff.
Sucks you got pulled away! Looking forward to seeing what those rifles can do.
