I may have posted this already. I think that it is originally from the Savage Arms website. It will drive you crazy if you try for a perfect high score.



EDIT: Rule #2 is the killer.

well, it looks like you can do it at 25 yards also. It looks as challenging as the Postal Shoot but doesn't consume as much ammunition. Looks like a sub .22-cal has the advantage. Definitely wouldn't use my .45-70.

Are you trying to see if anyone else can match your Ruger .204?

No, I wasn't trying to start a competition. I just came across this target in my files. It is pretty challenging.

I had been trying this offhand at 25 yards with my Ruger single six revolver. I kept getting greedy and wiping out my good shots with one that cuts the surrounding black. Need to pony up for some match ammo. I've been using some cheap stuff that is pretty inconsistent.

I tried 3 times at 50 yards with my .204. I was too greedy - tried for 50 pts and ended up with zeros. This was offhand, sitting. I had a shaky bench set up for 125 yards, but no real good setup for 50 yards. (The 125 yard setup is across a ravine, so I can't place targets there at 50 yards.)
These were all shot early last summer. Haven't had much time to shoot since July.
I have to rebuild my shooting "bench". When I was out hunting, I discovered that a large tree limb fell onto it. Maybe I'll move it down to my 50 yard area for the Winter and try this again.

Defiantly not a punkin chunkin target. But does look like it could be a lot of fun.

I'll be happy to earn 5 points for the 1.5" circle target!
that target is the size of 10 ring in UIT standard pistol 25m shoot.
In UIT competitions (Olympic) we shoot single handed with iron sight.
Its dang hard to get a consistent possible scores.

15 shots total, 5 each at 25, 50 and 100 yards from the bench with a .22 rim-fire !!!

How's that sound for a little summertime competition ???

I'm in! Gives me time to get my Ruger 10-22 Mods completed, find some good ammo, and practice some.
