0933 and I are working on a new shoot for you guys to practice your skills on. We'll be posting the target soon. Hopefully we have some great participation on this one.

great! I never did get around to shooting the zombie shoots. Too busy with the new house and grass this year. I bet we've well surpassed a record rain fall this year. I don't remember it ever being so wet. I spent 3 hours on the yard tractor today and at least 8 hours on the brush hog this week. anyways. I would love to shoot, but with the big shortage I'll probably use surplus ammo, like I had planned on the zombie target.

The Hornaday BTHP bullets are a saver for me though. $10 cheaper on the 100 and they seem to group as well as the SMK's in my Sporter. They are also rumored to be more consistant in expansion on deer so I may just switch permanantly for this gun. The SMK according to rumor will expand great one shot and make a pinhole the next and explode on impact the next shot. I'd guess velocity varrying with distance has a lot to do with that.

0933 and I will be designing the targets and the rules will follow. If it's what T and I talked about this is going to take some skill and strategy.

I'll keep you posted as things develop, Shep I'd like to get your input on this too when we get it all drawn out.

how far out do they have to be and how big do we print them?

Thanks Mark for posting those up! :thumbup:

Here is the deal guys, the shoot will be an aggregate of all four targets. Once you save them, you should be able to print them on a regular 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper from a black/white printer. The sizes should be appropriate... but I'll tell you the sizes of the scoring rings on each stage so you can compare and make sure. You CAN color/darken/fill-in the scoring rings for aiming points etc. however taking a sharpie to modify the scoring rings is a no-no. All these targets should be shot at 100 yds, with no time limit. Any shot whose grease ring is touching a scoring ring will be scored a hit... accept for the actual hostage on the hostage target, the round must BREAK the line in order to consider the hostage hit, and the -20 pnts applied. Obviously this shoot is geared more toward scoped/precision rigs. I'm working on a 'fun' shoot that will be more adaptable to iron sight rifles. Bipods, bags, bench, prone, etc. are allowed, lead sleds and other rigs where you don't shoulder the weapon are not.

Here is a breakdown of the Stages...

Stage 1: Cold Bore Shot... 1 round. Max points 20. This MUST be the first round fired out of the rifle for this range outing. You will be awarded 20 points for a hit on the center dot, 10 points for a hit in the second scoring ring, and 0 points for a miss. The center dot is slightly under 1.20", and with the radius of the bullet, you have roughly a 1.5" target. The second scoring ring is about 2.2", and with the radius of the bullet you have roughly a 2.5" target.

Stage 2: 3 round group... 3 rounds. Max points 30. Fire three rounds at the circle, 10 points awarded for each hit. 0 points awarded for a miss. The circle is right at 1" in dia.

Stage 3: Know your limits... up to 4 rounds. Max points 50. Only one round per square, shot in decending size (i.e. biggest first). You may quit at any time, a hit on the appropriate square gains that point value... a miss on ANY square nets 0 points TOTAL for this stage. The largest square is 2 3/4" on a side, and the smallest square is 1/2" on a side.

Hostage: Hostage target... 2 rounds, one round for each bad guy. Max points 20, a -40 points possible though. A hit in the T-Box of the bad guy is 10 points, a hit anywhere else on the head 5 points, a miss is 0... any hit on the hostage is -20 points. You can also gain points from hitting the bad guy, but if the grease ring from the bullet hole cuts the line, you also get -20 points. The t-box on the bad guys is roughly 1"x1"... and the target should fill up an entire page.

Total possible points is 120, and the round count is up to 10 depending on how many rounds you fire during stage 3. Please post pictures of your targets here in this thread. I believe we are leaving this shoot open for a while, and multiple entry's are welcome.

Good luck gentlemen!! :thumbup:
