Does anyone have the SSAA targets which I could use in PointBlank?

Then you just have to convert from the PDF format to the format that Point Blank uses and scale them to match.

I dont supply targets because they are all copy righted. Originally I made it so that it was a simple 100 pixels an inch, and people could resize any existing targets to work with that.

Later, I removed that restriction and you can use any scanned target, but you do have to calibrate it (click center of target, click a spot 1" high, 1" right of center so I can compute the horizontal and vertical scale factors). That all should still be working.

If you use the Belmont SSAA Range mate, unfortunately you are stuck with buying the targets from the shop at the range...they will not allow anything else.

I use the Ipswich Branch range at Ripley...you can use any target you like out there...except man targets of course.

Please correct me if I got this wrong !!!
So what your saying is you can't go to the range and stick a orange dot on a piece of white paper and shoot at it ???

That's exactly what Vince is saying.

I've seen this tried in Canada too, but thankfully it was reversed at most ranges.

Chamber, that's the moment you discover stones... the nicest are the red building bricks as they make a nice red cloud when hit. And 1 big advantage: it doesn't cost any stickers to cover the holes as in a paper target.
Did I mention it's more fun as most of the time there are no witness holes when you miss? So it's not showing how far you missed...
