Mel, I would just come out and say "I'll score it" if no one minds shipping their targets off to Canada (if they can't just scan or take a digital pic)....but I wanna compete!!! *sigh* not like I'm gonna be a top scorer anyway tho
I have been turning this around in my noodle for a bit and think a few more rules might be necessary to keep things on an even footing.
First, you should have at least two different classes for shooters. One for .22Lr and one for center fire rifles (you can break this down to .223 and then .308 and bigger) .
There is a significant difference in the size of projectiles for .22 and say a .308 (which can act to significantly increase the margin for error when using a .22, even if shot from 100 yards). For example the target that I posted, required sub roughly 1/2 MOA shooting to make a clean kill without hitting the edge of the target. With a .22, I think the accuracy requirement jumps to something like 7/8 MOA
I would also like to see a prone shooting requirement (bipod and sand sock permitted if you want). I just don't want to see this turn into a benchrest shooting event.
Just my $0.02. Ok, I've got my fire extinguisher ready - let the flaming begin.
Mel you just have to wait at least until this Thursday. This is when I will be able to take my SC1A5 home :twisted: I have been on a 10 day waiting period which totally sucks and is a complete waste of time.
I agree with Jeff though there should be no benchrest!!!! That should be in it's own category.
Count me in. Depending on timing and when you run the comps would love to have a go! Got a new savage 10FP LE2 so will have to work up some loads quite quick. Will it be open to Sniper Central people or can we try and encorage other members of our clubs. Got one guy in our club with a 22-250 that can very nearly cut one hole at 100yds so maybe as others have suggested seperate cattergories. .22 Rimfire .22 Fullbore, .30 cal and benchrest , just a thought
Sure could not compete in every one but would try to compete in some of them!!
Agree with jeffvn, need some different classes. Only problem with having so many different classes is right now you may be shooting against yourself :lol: . Agree, need some type of cal. classes, iron sights, scoped, benchrest, prone, offhand, 50yd to ???, timed fire, the list goes on! Lets just start off simple.
