Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

50 Yard Postal Shoot Aug-Sep

#1 Post by jones0430 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 10:45 pm

1. Only military surplus rifles may be used. Bolt action or semi-auto. The rifle must have been issued by a military somewhere on the planet. Generally this means anything that's a C&R or antique and is a military rifle.

2. Only iron/open sights may be used. Mojo/ghost ring sights and Smith Sights are okay but no scopes or other sights which require permanent modification to the rifle may be used.

3. All shooting must be done at 50 yards (or meters, if you have a metric range) from any position (prone, bench, sitting, offhand)

4.You may submit up to three targets a month. You may submit up to one target a week by Sunday evening. If you use different rifles, each rifle counts for one of the three eligible targets a month. Or shoot the same rifle three times. Each target must be scanned/photographed with annotations.

5. Winner to be announced at the end of September.


Course of Fire:

Your record shots will consist of 10 shots at the target which should be printed on a sheet of 8.5"x11" white paper. For your printer settings, make sure that you "size to fit" the target to letter-size paper.

You only get ONE record target, so make sure your shots are good ones.

You may take an unlimited number of sighters at any target other than your record target.

Use the SRF Target 2014.

Thanks for running these, jones0430. I'll have to get out and shoot more in this next cycle.

I am still playing around with cast lead in the Remington. This time, instead of TrailBoss, I opted for Alliant 2400. Unusual mild weather here for Aug. Shooting in heat and humidity is no fun.
