The targets are within reason as they look the same at 25 yards as a NRA A23 target would look in irons at 50 yards.

I personally shoot these when I am practicing. They are about the exact same size as this months target, but with the outer rings.

The outer rings mean nothing to me when shooting as I often can't even make them out. All I look for is my black dot.

Why did this turn in to a debate thread and who gave mrrabbit the wrong definition of 'strawman'?

Seriously, if that's all you're going to say to people at least use it in the right context for crap's sake!

Now, knock of the bickering and thread derailing and stay on topic.

You posted that graphic....not I.

The slight under at 6 o'clock is what I use for 25, the "on" 6 o'clock is what I use for 50, and 12 o'clock roughly 7-8 inches up is what I use for 100 for my Henry AR-7 zeroed at 50.

Go back to May posting and see my 100 and 25. I had no problem seeing those targets - Mr. Consistency won those matches - that's for me to deal with.

This month however the OP posted 25 yard targets that are smaller. I sighted 'em last night - all I see is a tiny ball - I have no chance at estimating and aiming within. I'm reduced to simply hitting the target period.

For those wondering about my eyesight - I build 300-500 bicycle wheels per year @ +/- .002-.003 in. tolerance without the use of a dial indicator.

Bottom line the point we are all trying to make is we all see it as a little dot. Atleast I know I am not superman with magnified vision, and I already showed you what my sight picture looks like.

We are all shooting the same target - I personally thought my score was pretty bad. 204/480 possible points is way below 50%. Now hopefully with some practice I can improve on that. My short term goal is to score 240 plus.

This is how I shoot on a normal training day.

OK !!!! ENOUGH WITH THE BULL*****

I haven't heard this much crap in a long time, like when my kids played 3rd grade soccer
( oh yea everybody got a trophy )
The targets are what they are LIKE IT OR NOT

mrrabbitt deal with it, or get off this forum !!!!

The match coordinators spend a lot of time and effort to run these matches and I for one appreciate there efforts and I don't care to see one person posting all of this negative crap on my favorite forum

Man does my 10/22 like that Wolf MT. Just wish I could find some more. Not sure if I can improve on this one. BTW, I removed the extra 'stuff' on the target to save on printer ink.

100 YRDS Bench Ruger 10/22 Wolf MT BSA scope 24x
Score: 100 (104 if we're doing the extra points)

That is absolutely spectacular shooting and very nice rifle. You saved me some $$$ this month, no need for me to shoot (but I will anyway). Could you measure the distance from the outside of the two holes that are the farthest from each other and subtract .22". I think that groups is well below MOA (1" @100yds). I hate to shout on the internet but "DO NOT SELL THAT RIFLE".

To Mr. Rabbits,

I didn't understand your dilemma until I actually started drawing sight pictures. The way it was explained to me was that I should always make a lollipop with the front sight and the target. Therefore, I have drawn some sight pictures for your consideration. The top row is how you are shooting now, the bottom row is a potential solution for your issue.

Regards,

Shelton

Rear sight is an aperture (peep). It does work exactly as designed - but I really do prefer the old open blades.

Supposedly you look through the peep and focus on the blade and target, not at the peep. That's what I do. So how do you do what you're suggesting other than adjusting the peep blade itself which has no markings for recording 25, 50 and 100 yard zeros?

Time to take out that jewelers file?

Dattebayo: Thanks, everything just came together for this one. This was my second of 4 targets. First being sighters, and I was not able to replicate the grouping on the following targets. Close but not quite.

Izzy43: Thanks also. This rifle has always loved the wolf ammo and I would never sell it as it's my first customized 10/22. This baby will be handed down some day.

Here's the measurement:

Awesome deal. I have a Nikon 6-20 Monarch scope I have been debating on getting rings to slap onto the trainer to see how much tighter I can get the groups when I can see the bull.

Only thing that has been stopping me is that I'd have to take off my aperture sights, and that is not an easy task as I have them on there pretty good. Maybe it is time for me to purchase a .22lr for scoped comps. CZ 452 Trainers are on sale at J&R for $339 atm.

Thanks. My old eyes measure that as about .4" or .4 MOA. Thats an excellent group for 50yds so @ 100yd its amazing for a .22.

I'm not sure about aperture sights (I don't have any). Maybe sight in 6 o'clock at 100 yards, then hold lower for the other two shorter distances?

Hopefully, someone with way more experience will chime in with a solution.

To rwojnilo: Nice shooting!!!

You adjust your elevation with the peep, and if it doesn't have marks for MOA, mil, or whatever, make your own witness marks for approximate distances and just fine tune as necessary between adjustments.

If you understood how sights work(and people were trying to help you with this...) you'd realize that you can make your own markings if none exist already.

If the sights are not adjustable, then you either continue to make due, or get something more appropriate.

Rwojnilo - holy cow! that's amazing!

i noticed an immediate improvement on painting the front sight post on my 10/22 today - yesterday's second target was a 160, today's was a 177. based upon scores on prior month's targets and the relative size of the various scoring rings, i feel relatively confident that i should be able to get close to the 220 range for a score on this sheet - just going to take some practice. good thing it's a 3 month match! lots of time for practice.

i'm also happy to announce that i should be able to get in some more range time on the longer range targets, just need to either get another gun to put a scope on, or put a better scope on my son's gun. i was able to come up with a 4th person to allow us to sign up for a corporate membership at the indoor range i frequent now, which saves me enough money to also join the fresno rifle and pistol club range on auberry road, which gives me access to an outdoors range up to 100 yds, plus dingers at 200, 220, and 300 yards. with my membership expiring saturday at the firing line, getting that fourth person to agree to sign up was just in time.

Hmm...intriquing idea - work the opposite way. Seems kinda extreme though. Imagine how much I'd have to aim under at 25 though...that would be one "deep six" - he he.

I was planning on marking the peep blade for 25, 50, and 100 zero - but I really didn't want leave permanent markings on the firearm. But maybe now that I'm shooting at the 100 yard target - the issue is being forced either way.

Quite frankly, zeroed at 50, I wasn't expecting last month to hit the 100 yard target at all that we use - but instead got quite a surprise with Eley Target and no reference to work with but open air above the target.

Right now, my setup for 25 and 50 works just fine.

Good news is I have a mini-metal lathe, a drill press, benched wood and metal vises, and plenty of tools. So I guess I'll just have to make sure I do a professional clean job of marking the peep blade just in case someone else ever has to use it.

Target can be shot from any position, bench rest, standing, or prone. Even from the hood of your truck/car.

Quite frankly, zeroed at 50, I wasn't expecting last month to hit the 100 yard target at all that we use - but instead got quite a surprise with Eley Target and no reference to work with but open air above the target.

Right now, my setup for 25 and 50 works just fine.

Good news is I have a mini-metal lathe, a drill press, benched wood and metal vises, and plenty of tools. So I guess I'll just have to make sure I do a professional clean job of marking the peep blade just in case someone else ever has to use it.

You may find this informative about aperture/peep sights. Doesn't talk to .22lr shooting but the concepts with the type of sights. Aperture/Peep sights can be difficult if they are not the adjustable type (for windage/elevation) as a typical .22lr bullet will drop 6-8 inches out to 100yds when the sights are zeroed @ 50yds. Difficult to hold over that much with fixed sights.

Supposedly you look through the peep and focus on the blade and target, not at the peep. That's what I do. So how do you do what you're suggesting other than adjusting the peep blade itself which has no markings for recording 25, 50 and 100 yard zeros?

Time to take out that jewelers file?

I also have a Henry AR7, lots of fun for a camp rifle. I haven't done it to mine yet, but I've seen one with elevation markings added before...
- Set your peep/blade height for a medium distance, lets say 50 yards
- File/Dremel one thin line across the receiver and blade to mark this mid setting
- Remove the blade and file/Dremel two or three evenly spaced lines above and below the mid line... only do this on the blade.
- Fill in all the lines with a white paint or google how to paint rollmarks on a slide, same technic can be used.

Although the lines above and below your mid line are just evenly spaced and not actual MOA or anything, you can quickly figure out that "just above or below this line" is for a 100 yard shot.

The one I saw also had a different screw on the blade, it had a round knurled thumb screw so it was easy to loosen.

Happy shooting!

Thanks. I figured as much, just wanted the clarification since it was the first thing I noticed when I looked at the topic.

I agree with that. Kentucky windage with aperture sights in my experience has been a crap shoot.

Possibly go with a milling add on to the mini lathe till you can afford a dedicated vertical mill.

That's an idea I really like...can probably use a allen socketed screw with a ring....

I think with the tools you have, you can probably easily construct something along the lines of a leaf rear sight to adjust for range.

The CZ 452 Trainer/Lux/Ultralux come with a leaf/tangent sight that I found was superior to most factory sights.

Heh...

I was reading this post...on this larger screened laptop in my garage. And realized that the letters coming out of your Avatar don't spell "P O W E R B A L L" but rather your name.

Haha, I am glad someone mentioned something about my avatar. You are the first to ever comment about it! I actually made it specific for this forum. I am a professional photographer/graphic designer/journalist so forum sigs are fairly trivial for me, but it is fun to do.

Not too much to ask. The scores are being reviewed and will be posted soon. We are a little tied up with reviewing the rules for the matches. Sorry its taking a while. You are not forgotten.

25 YARD PISTOL OFFHAND 51
25 YARD PISTOL BENCH REST 54 I was using Lazyme's Charger pistol
