    Im planing on doing it too. Still deciding what scoped one to use. For the irons at 25. Im going to use my Vintage Winchester 60.

    Tell him about how people posit on “Momentum” and “Kinetic Energy” on this site, and he’ll probably not want to visit :rofl:

    My arthritis has flared up, I don't know when I will be ready and shoot.

    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.

    Loonwulf said ..."That might work, to be honest I couldnt eve TRY to shoot these targets with an iron sighted gun, so IM really not much help in figguring this one out."

    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.

    I’ve been swamped but I’ll definitely give it a second go.

    I envy those who feared some might cherry pick targets. I wish I had the time to shoot that much!

    I did a quick shoot the other day over lunch. Winchester 63 with a Weaver V22 scope. I used the SK Rifle Match I had in the bag. It did not function very well. More ummph needed to cycle reliably. 50 yards off a rest.

    Went out this morning with the intention of trying this out but was having a 'senior moment', forgot to bring the printed targets...
    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:

    IMG_0368.jpg

    Had a hell of a time even seeing these targets with the irons on the Rossi.

    Nice job and I love your rest. I have one that is quite similar.

    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.

    I did the challage with my 10/22 and Savage A22. I had a scope mount issue with the 10/22. When i got home and checked. The rear ring screw to base was a 1/2 turn loose. I'll do the 10/22 again. 1st group was ok with it. Ammo was winchester 555. 20220611_162845.jpg

    Tried to make this happen today. Even chose the candidates: Rimfires for Prove It Reboot.jpg
    L-R: FrankenRuger, Marlin 7000T, Remington Model 5, old Marlin 25N.
    Made it to the range (I was RSO-ing anyway), too:
    LKC range Prove It target at 50 yds.jpg

    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.

    Gave it two tries this weekend at 55yd (50m) with my Bergara BMR scope set at 12x. Good, hot, humid weather, light 11mph swirling wind. Same score with CCI SV and Wolf ME. I may give it another go with my CZ 455 in two weeks.
