Any Marksmen?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I was curious if anyone would be interested in a rimfire challenge, just about every hunter, shooter has a .22 or .17 rifle. Any rimfire cartridge could be welcomed and we could do something like 4, 5 shot groups. This can be done in the honors system, go to the range and shoot the groups come home scan in the target or take a picture, (each group needs a ruler beside it) Also this would be shot at 25yds i think that is a fair distance, So we can just post the firearm used, the ammunition, sights/optics. So what do you guys all think?

Also if you are interested just say so, so that way i know who is participating and if we need to wait for anyone. I have the target below and you would shoot the 4 outer targets, and the center target is a sight in bulls eye if you choose to use it. just print it out on standard paper.

I will try to do it this weekend when my dad isn't working.

I unfortunately cannot attach the PDF of the target i have, so please pm me your email and i will send it to you via that. I hope some guys like this idea....

Though I've never got with rimfire, I've done a lot of hunting and benchrest shooting

with centerfire cartridges and pet reloads (222 Rem mag, 243 WCF & 270 WCF).

The goal as usual is one MOA...one ragged hole :o

nice!

that said there is as much luck in that shot as there is skill, especially if that is a .223 in your hands.

It was a very lucky shot lol, and hit it my first shot. I lucked out by having it in my sights right when I pulled up to shoot. I couldn't believe that .223 round was able to reach out and touch that coyote without to much of a lead on it.

Good lord I wish we could hunt with ARs in PA. At least for predator hunting.

They do something like that over on rimfirecentral.

If I have anything decent on Wednesday I'll post it up here. I'm in the process of joining a bullseye club and league. It'll only be the second time really shooting one handed so if there is something that doesn't make me look too bad I'll add it.

We should start a little comp but have diffrent catagory for pistol guys. I don't own a gun that won't shoot sub moa from my marlin 15yn up to my my 20ga slug gun it took a lot of messing around but I like the feeling knowing I can pick up any of my guns and what hair I'm gonna split on what ever furry critter is on the other end.
