    I made a 25 yard target for factory spec .22LR rifles. You can download it here:

    https://www.yousendit.com/download/UW16a3ZBcG9wM25yZHNUQw

    It will print on an A4 sheet or a US letter sheet, do not resize it or scale it to fit the paper. Rules are on the sheet, a perfect score is 48 points. Avoid the diamonds as multiple hits will mean multiple losses of 5 points!

    Here's a preview of the target (do not use this image below, get the file from the download link above):

    Enjoy :)

    I like it, I'll try it out next time I get to the range. Want a scoreable pic?

    Factory spec? Why the limitation?

    I'll be making a different one for non-standard rifles.

    This looks like it would be fun to try out. And challenging.

    Can I print it on 11x17 instead? :eek:

    Could be interesting if you hit the circle and the diamond with the same shot, I think strictly speaking that should result in -4

    So, if you just graze (touch) the square it's -5??

    Yep, treat those diamonds like glass. You touch it, you break it, that's minus 5 mister!

    How about another +2 points for hitting the overlap between the 2 green circles in the middle of the target.

    That makes it a nice even round 50 max points :)
