Default Sept. match -EDIT 9/4, pistol classes being broken out again

First, results for the summer match, congrats to the winners! I have attached the results in a spreadsheet since it was 3 months combined, with each month's score counting towards the yearly total, but with one overall winner for the summer in each category. Hopefully it's pretty self explanatory how it's set up, if there's any questions, please shoot me a PM.

Pistol:
15 yd offhand - 10xhobby with a 105
25 yd offhand - 10xhobby with a 51
15 yd benched - 10xhobby with a 122
25 yd benched - 10xhobby with a 54
(it's a sweep!)

Rifle:
25 yd irons - aardwolf with a 245
50 yd irons - usmcchet9296 with a 72
100 yd irons - aarwolf with a 56
50 yd bullseye scoped - covingtonhouse with a 194
50 yd hostage scoped - dattebayo with a 66
100 yd scoped - rwojnilo with a 104.

September match targets below.

Default New rules added!

**************EDIT: I had forgotten that we were changing a few things up this month. Please see new rules below with some minor revisions to the posted classes / groups of shooters.****************

BE SURE TO READ THIS ENTIRE ANNOUNCEMENT AS THERE ARE SOME CHANGES IN THE RULES, TARGETS AND POSTING REQUIREMENTS!!! SEND PM TO MATCH COORDINATOR FOR ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS. ( I know I'm yelling by using all CAPS but I need your attention).

Rules:

Following are the classes of Targets.

Pistol: 15 and 25yd . Offhand and bench rest scored separately. Iron sights, red dot or non-magnifed scope. One winner for 15 yd and 25 yd each offhand and bench rest.

Rifle-Iron Sights: 25yd, 50yd and 100yd Aperture Sights only. This class of shooting is determined by the type of rear sight on the rifle. Any type front sight is allowed as long as there is no magnification.

Rifle Iron Sights: 25yd, 50yd and 100yd Open Rear Sight only. This class of shooting is determined by the type of rear sight on the rifle. Open rear sight of the Buckhorn (notched) or similar type only. Any type of front sight is allowed as long as there is no magnification.

Rifle Scoped: 50yd and 100yd (25yd scoped at the Coordinators discretion). No limit on magnification.

This is an online match. Print all targets at 100%. Colored targets may be printed in grayscale to save on color ink, shoot where and when you want. Annotate on the target the Distance, Score and type of sights used (ie. Scope, Aperature, Open, Red Dot). Take a picture of your target(s) and post in this thread for bragging rights!! Flickr.com and Photobucket.com are two websites where you can host you target pictures and link to your post. Match runs from the 1st day of the month until the last day. Shoot as many targets as you want and post up to two targets for each target class.

Note: If the shot is touching the line, it is scored on the higher number.

I encourage meeting up with other match shooters. Any rimfire firearm is eligible. Shooting from a benchrest, prone, sitting, standing, hood of your car, leaning against a tree is acceptable. Using a rest in which the Rifle/Pistol can be locked down is verboten (ie. can't do that).


Bonus Points

Here is how it will work. This is only on targets that have multiple shots on one target We shoot the targets as normal and add up the scores like normal. The twist is we shoot for groups as well. For example, if we are shooting 5 shots on each target. If none of the 5 bullet holes are touching you get no bonus points. If two are touching you get 2 bonus points. If three are touching you get 3 bonus points on up to 5 bonus points for each target.

Finally for any questions just send a PM to the Match Co-ordinator for this month and he/she will get right back to you. Also feel free to send a PM with feedback/complaints/errors. Comments about the matches that are posted within the Match Thread will not be responded to, use PM only. Limit posts in the Match Thread to Target Posts and kudos to other shooters. These matches are based on “Gentlemen's/Ladie's Honor” so go shoot and have fun.

Make sure for each target indicate your total score and if not already indicated on the target note the distance shot and what type of sights. Ex: Score =xxx, Open or Aperture Sights, Scope, Red Dot. No fair shooting iron sight targets with a scope for score. )



Now on to the September match.

Pistol: we will use the same targets for offhand and bench rest shooting. Mark your targets accordingly.
15 yd Pistol: use 50 yd irons target. Shoot 5 shots per bull (10 shots total), score accordingly.
25 yd Pistol: use 100 yd irons target. Shoot 10 shots, score accordingly.

Rifle: we will use the same target for blade style and aperture style sights, aperture sights will be scored separately from blade style sights. Mark your targets accordingly.
Irons:
we have 2 targets for 25 yd irons this month. the first is a standard bullseye target, the second is a silhouette timed target.
25 yd irons: use 25 yd irons target. Shoot 3 shots per bull (18 total). Score accordingly. Center is 10, then as marked.
25 yd irons silhouette target, timed. 1 minute (mad minute); shots in round bull count as 10, all else zero. total score in 1 minute.
50 yd irons: use 50 yd irons target. Shoot 5 shots per bull (10 total). Score accodingly.
100 yd irons: use 100 yd irons target. Shoot 10 shots, score accordingly.

You have me down for a score in 100 yard scoped. That score must belong to someone else...

Come on guys...I know you all have pistols.

No matter how much we all suck compared to 10xhobby, it's not going to kill you to splatter five on the paper and call it a score.

Got out to shoot today. Shot the 25 and 50yd irons, one minute 25yd target and 50 yd scoped target. While I was not too keen on the one minute 25yd target I found it to be a lot of fun, especially as I was using a single shot rifle. In fact in was my favorite target of the day. Only got off 20 shots, all but one was a hit.

Scores:

25yd Irons-184
25yd 1 minute-190 or 207 if touching shots count.
50yd Irons-104
50yd Scope- 154









And then there was the surprise in the afternoon when I got home. 20 full minutes of .50 caliber hail. Got 1.4" of rain as well in 1 hour.

Yes, bonus points count on the minute target too. That's really good shooting, especially for a single shot! 95% hit ratio with 3 seconds between shots! Glad you enjoyed it. The other targets are equally impressive, as is the pictures of the hail storm - I would say I would love some of that here, but I need to get a new roof put on first.

Izzy - to confirm so I know what class to put you in, you were shooting aperture sights, correct?

We, like most areas, needed the rain. I have lived here for 3 years now and we have never had hail like it was today. Strange that it hailed but even more was the time that it came down and with some serious wind as well. I was concerned about my 3 cars in the driveway but none were damaged. All the plants and flowers took a real beating, especially my wife's roses, she's sick about it.

Good luck in the match this month.

So if I am reading this right, we now only have 2 pistol classes and 8 rifle classes. How is this going to work on the yearly overall points total, sure looks like it favors the rifle shooters now.

I honestly don't think the yearly overall points total was even thought about when this revision was made. Offhand and bench rest targets will continue to be scored separately. Thanks for bringing this to light.

Shot the 100yd Scoped target today. Score -96. CZ UltraLux, Weaver T-24 scope and Eley Target ammo. Had a Remington .308 on one side and a Winchester .400 Magnum on the other. Had to shoot between the muzzle blasts, especially the .400 Magnum. Off on a one month RV trip next Monday. Have fun shooting.

I think this is my first time participating this year. Nice to try it out again.
Shot the 50yd iron, 50yd scoped and 25ys iron. Wanted to do 100yd but didn't have enough time. Hopefully before the end of the month.

I shot several of each but only posting the highest scores.

50 yard scoped
Score: 157


50 yard iron
Score: 105


25 yard iron removed

Okay...

Today I introduced an old friend (Dragon333) to shooting. And of course, a brand-new Savage MKII-F bolt action is an excellent rifle to start out with for first-timers.

Chabot was the range...

We are both the same age.
We are both the same height.
We are both the same weight range - 145-150 lbs.
We both wear the exact same size clothes.
We both wear eyeglasses.

And we both scored a "71" for 50 yard rifle irons!!!




After he left, I took over his board and posted a new 50 yard target for the Henry AR-7 with rear apeture sight and front blade sight...

...and scored a "94".

I left that target on the board sitting on a bench for awhile. The Range Officers stopped by - looked at the rifle - looked at the target and shook their heads in amazement.

Several folks shooting AR-15's nearby did the same...as well as a guy shooting an air rifle. Quite a few folks congratulated me.

Pull up the target and you'll see exactly the reason why.


Onto the 25 yard pistol irons. Of course the usual disclaimers apply.

1. I suck at pistol.
2. I suck at pistol.
3. And I suck at pistol.

This is my second Sig Mosquito getting broken in using Fiocchi High Velocity Plated Round Nose - no FTFs and no FTEs for 170 rounds.

I'm posting 2 scores - "71" and "75". I'll let you folks decide which one you'll accept.

From now on, I'm going to post a target high left and low right - instead of a grid of four targets - in order to avoid target contamination. I am really that bad with pistols.

I suspect that when both are done getting "broken" in and I switch to Eley Target 1085 fps using the standard velocity spring - I'll see an improvement.


The Range Master went on a tear this afternoon at Chabot. Several folks repeatedly kept messing around at the rifle benches during ceasefires - to the point that he went ballistic over the PA.

STTTOOOOOPPPPPP!!!

You won't believe how many people froze between targets and benches - some including myself standing on one foot in mid-stride. Whoever it was was really pushing it...


Some notes about the new Savage MKII-F

1. The AccuTrigger is really nice. I like this trigger. And "Dragon333" had no problem with it.

2. I don't like the traditional open sights on it.

3. I'm seriously considering getting the Tech-Sights for the Savage MKII-F in the near future. $75.00 seems reasonable.

4. It really is an easy and straight forward magazine fed bolt-action rifle.


As a side note, quite a few folks on the line couldn't help but chat today about how nice it must be to live and shoot in Nevada.


=8-)

Thumbs up Sept Rifle match targets

Here are my targets for the rimfire match. We went out to Sac Valley and it was a great day, but it got a little windy in the late afternoon. I shot the Iron Sights with my Mossberg S 42 M with the O M 22 Aperture Sights and the scoped targets with my old Marlin 60 with a 3x9x40 scope on it. I think it's funny that I shot better groups with the iron sights and better ammo than my scooped Marlin.

50 yard iron 98 aperture
100 yard iron 99 aperture
50 yard scooped 144
100 yard scoped 71

You and I seem to have a very similar result with the 50 yard apeture irons.

Slight spread low - tight high. Rather interesting...

I think I may have found the secret to the AR-7.

If you have the position on the apeture - you have the dot on the front blade - and feel comfortable with the first shot...

...don't bother checking the the result or taking time on the next shots.

2, 3, 4, 5. Get 'em done in quick succession.

That's exactly what I did on my super tight group on the upper portion of my paper. The lower one is where I checked each shot and took my time.

What was the situation in your case?

I check my target after each shot. At 50 yards the point of aim is 12 o clock at the 5 ring because my gun is zero'd at 25 yards. I think the top 5 shots are cleaner because my eyes are rested and the barrel is cool. The bottom 5 is a hotter barrel and I can really tell my eyes are getting fatigued because the crisp clean target picture becomes fuzzy and distorted. It sucks getting old !!!

Thanks Izzy.

Nice shooting guys.

mrrabbit, I was at Chabot on Saturday. There's always some screaming from the range master there.
Love going to my friend's house in truckee, we shoot 5 minutes from the house...

Anyhow...

Thanks to PeterRabbits for good targets.

The solid outer rings provided an outside reference to estimate the middle. The solid center bull provided an occasional dot within. Sometimes I would see it - sometimes I wouldn't. Sometimes just resetting my position and brace would bring the dot back.

Bottom-line...I'm in...

Also with the two center and diagonal targets in the 25 yard gone - no more brain artifacts getting in the way. Unfortunately Chabot is 20 yards for their short rifle range therefore nothing to submit.

I really wanted to try out the "mad minute" target - however Chabot does not allow them - even the non-humanoid ones. So I had to toss them in the can. They require blotting out what would be the head portion.

Thanks for the heads up. Need to remove my 25td entry...

Looks like Izzy and PeterRabbits are going to have to scratch my 25 yard irons submission for July.

I asked the Chabot ROs about shooting .22LR in the 25 yard alley in the pistol range - they indicated that they used to allow it - but no longer.

The 20 yard rifle range is apparently going to stay the way it has for as long as folks there can remember it.

25-yard (aperture): 191 (the second target was scored 189). Third time on 9/28 was 188.



50-yard scoped: 161 (the second target was scored 156). Tried again on 9/28 and shot 159, 152, and 157.



Closer look at left bull on 50-yard scoped for group bonus (I scored it a 5 but please feel free to correct it):

I have some 15 & 25 yard targets printed out for pistol. Someone needs to give you a challenge.

Maybe I'll go do that right now.
