    As to not hijack another thread.
    I'm asking the mods to allow a friendly RIMFIRE challenge that developed on another thread. Anyone is free to join in per rules listed.
    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 COMPETITION BIPODS. Standard folding bipods, front and rear bags OK.

    Post a pick of your target below with details, rifle, sight, ammo, position ...

    But 50 yards=50ft on the internet right? Seriously though, I didn't see the original thread. Scopes permitted?

    Scopes permitted, on your honor.
    I'm certain if enough targets are posted there my be embellishment.
    You only cheat yourself, most embellished postings are obvious.

    The original thread ended with some challenges but no way to carry them out.

    Lets keep it friendly and fun !

    I had to print via WiFi from my iPhone using a Canon app. What I got looks like a 3 5/8” target, sound right for scaling?

    Sounds like fun. I need to test some Wolf ammo. Might as well have some fun with it.

    Ok, looks like we are shooting for score and not for group. Mine are sighted off the aiming point so I can still see the aiming point.
    I can change, I guess, if I have to, I guess.

    Yup, shooting for score complicates the matter. Close but tight ain't good enough. But that's why I also only went for 3 shot per bull to not totally tear out the aimimg point. Three shots in one hole should be fine.

    @ford8nr thank you for setting up the challenge and I wish you straight shooting. I’ve got a half box of Thunderbolts and a Chiappa Badger with missing front sight that might surprise you! :rofl:

    Glad we could set this up, should be fun.

    I think that Badger deserves better ammo even without a front sight. I'd go with nothing less then Golden Bullets.
    Looking forward to target pics. Unfortunately I won't be able to shoot for at least a week.

    I don't think I can see these at 50yds without a scope! This is a true challenge for me! Thanks for setting this up ford8nr. This is going to be fun.

    I had that same thought as I considered iron sighted rifle choices. Win 75, Rem 521T, CZ99, Kim 82G ...

    What I would say can be allowed is take a target, blacken the outer scoring rings and place it over the scoring target. Shoot through the modified target into the scoring one. Make sense ?
    If I remember right I need at least a 3" black bull for 50yd irons.

    While a competition, we still need to have fun !

    I hope to put some rounds on target Saturday, I will try to “prove it” with the 22lr at 50 and maybe even th 308 at 100 because why not?

    FYI, my 10/22 is a 2moa Gun At 50 and 75, 100 it’s a little more wobbly

    Man oh man this is gonna be a blast. Does anyone have a link to a target we can all use so everyone uses the same one. My 10/22 will have some fun when I get the chance. It's 100% stock except it has a cheap walmart scope

    This sounds fun. I'll see if I can get some rifle time when at the range on Sat (I am a volunteer RSO).
