Default One-Day KD shoot @ San Jose, 8/31

This shoot is fast approaching and we still have plenty of space for Bay Area Appleseeders wanting a taste of longer distances. Some details:


Since this is one day only, and a short day at that, it's going to be all about shooting beyond 25 meters. This is for AS 'veterans' only, so we will not be reviewing marksmanship basics, but jumping straight into trajectories, come-ups, etc.

We have a 200 yard range available, and we will be setting it up for both centerfire and rimfire 'known distance' (KD) AQTs. Centerfires will shoot stages at 100 yards (standing), 200 yards (sitting), 75 and 100 yards (scaled targets for prone stages.) Rimfires will be shooting at 25, 50, 75, and 100 for their stages, all on scaled targets.

Known distance shooters will have priority on the line space and target backers. We haven't needed relays at previous shoots here, but we do have fast-swap target backers so we can run them quickly if necessary. If - and only if - there's both space on the line and extra 25m target backers - those who want can 'grind' on their QDAQT scores at 25m.

I will be contacting registered shooters in advance to find out their intent so I can make up a plan for target frame placement. Shooters will be expected to help set up and tear down. We will ask shooters to arrive by 7:30AM to assist, we will start the program at 8AM, and must be off the range, with trash and brass policed, by 4PM.

If you have them, please bring spotting scopes and wind gauges.

It looks like there WILL be room for those who want to grind on 25m AQTs. Note there won't be the usual marksmanship review - all of the instruction will relate to KD - so get in some dry practice in advance. There will be time to zero rifles while the KDers are working on come-ups.
