3. You may use as many targets as you choose for your course of fire, (30 Shots), or you may use one target and score/repair it after every 10 shots. Target Pasters or masking tape may be used to repair targets between 10 shot relays. Just be sure to score your target first before repairing it.

4. This Match will be shot from the Prone Position. Bipod & sling are allowed. Shooting off a sandbag, chunk, x-stick, or backpack, is allowed. However, the barrel may not be locked into any support devices.

The butt of the rifle must be supported in your shoulder without any aids such as lock in devices or sandbags, (though locking in with a sling is permissable).

5. There will be two Classifications;

From 100 to 200yd clicks?

About how many inches of adjustment do you dial in to get from a 100 to 200 yd zero using standard velocity target ammo? I understand its just approximate but just to get on paper

Rich,

From a 50 yd zero, and CCI Green Tag ammo scope w/ 1/4" clicks:

to 100 yds = drop 7.75 MOA or 31 clicks
to 200 yds = drop 28.5 MOA or 114 clicks

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

I list everyone's scores they submit. Doesn't seem to be much interest right now in shooting 100 & 200 yard paper. Folks may not have the time this time of year?

I also wonder if we were shooting gongs at 100 & 200 yards if we'd get more involvement? Say a 4x5 gong at 100 yards, and a 6x8 at 200 yards? 30 shots from each distance - report how many times you hit the gong you choose to shoot at (27 of 30 from 200 yards)? Something of this nature?

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

Bravo, Joe. Don't be discouraged by a small initial turnout, growth tends to be slow but steady. Our FV200 200yd Centerfire F Class emulation club matches here at Odessa NY are nearing the middle of our second season, and we had 14 shooters this past weekend, even in my own absence due to car/family considerations.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

I'm going to try to get a shoot in on this one at both 100 & 200. I have a range for 100, however for 200 i'll have to go onto public land, and there are places for me to do it, just not a lot of time for me to do it. Work has me putting in a lot of overtime, i'm getting at least 50hrs/week right now, and last week was 60. I want to do more of these matches, however I have to juggle work, 2 daughters, a wife, and whatever is left is mine. Like was said before, don't be discouraged by low turnout, folks are just busy this time of year, and some folks don't like to go and lay down on the ground for hours when it's hot out, especially when it's NOT windy!

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

The same here . Lot of work ,Little time to play.
I generaly go late afternoon to be able to have the 200' range all to my self so I can vary distance's and learning to range thru the scope. Super hot here in SW Florida.
I will try and get some more on this end to participate.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

This was my initial thoughts of time constraints come good weather. We have a narrow window of good weather that we need to get things done, and of course family and work must come first. Perfectly understandable.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

joe, i think the gongs would be and interesting addition but may be harder to get/build and sometimes a no-no to shoot at public ranges.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

I don't think we'll make any changes this year since we're at the midway point of these matches with only July, August, and September left.

Over the Winter I think we could discuss the possibilities of expanding the matches. Perhaps offering a gong match for those that can, and adding a 50 yard match, as well as opening up the use of bench within the current rules of supporting the rifle in the same manner as from the prone position.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

Hi Joe,
Have you thought about extending the matches later than September for those of us in the lower states. I like shoot in any weather to test my ability. Gongs next year would be a +.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

Actually, I see no reason why we couldn't continue these monthly's - year round? Not all SH members have the same weather year round, so going with year round would give more folks an opportunity to get involved I feel.

Between now and the end of September I will re'work the info and rules so we can get started in October or perhaps before.

I've decided not to take on any 50 yard targets. We will stay with the 100 and 200 yard ranges.

All matches will be 30 shots;

a. 100 yard (new) "paper" Target TQ4 (Prone) Match-100YP-TQ4
b. 100 yard (current) "paper" Target TQ4 (Bench) Match-100YB-TQ4
c. 200 yard (current) "paper" Target A21 (Prone) Match-200YP-A21
d. 200 yard (new) "paper" Target A21 (Bench) Match-200YB-A21
e. 100 yard (new) "gong" 4x5 inch (Prone) Match-100YP-45G
f. 100 yard (new) "gong" 4x5 inch (Bench) Match-100YB-45G
g. 200 yard (new) "gong" 6x8 inch (Prone) Match-200YP-68G
h. 200 yard (new) "gong" 6x8 inch (Bench) Match-200YB-68G

Class - OSI (Open Iron Sights Which Include Peep Sights)
Class - Scope (There Are No Restrictions On Power)

Here's is how we will report our scores. If they are not reported in the following manner - they will be thrown out. So be sure to double check your PM to me that it is formatted properly, as I will not reformat it;

Name: John Doe
Class: Scope
Rifle: Savage Mark II FVT
Match: 200YB-68G
Score: 29 of 30

Name: Jane Doe
Class: OSI
Rifle: Marlin 925
Match: 200YP-A21
Score: 299-29X

There are a total of 8 Matches. You may enter a score for any number of these matches each month that you wish to shoot in - but you may only enter a score once for each matches you choose to shoot in per month.

Example;
I would probably enter Matches: 200YP-68G and 200YB-68G (which is the 200 yard prone & bench matches using a 6x8 inch gong).

This is what I have so far. I will not go beyond the 8 matches listed above, as it could become to confusing. Therefore, if anyone wants to run anyother type matches you will have to do it.

Appreciate your understanding.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

No rear bag from the bench or prone.

I just posted the new rules and match schedule that will begin in August 2009. We'll still shoot July under the existing rules.

I think we can have a lot of fun with these extra matches, and they will run year round.

The butt of the rifle must be supported in your shoulder without any aids such as lock'in devices or sandbags, (though locking in with a sling is permissable). This Rule is for both "Prone & Bench" shooting. The use of a Bi-Pod, or Sandbags to support your rifle's barrel is allowed.

You could even use a chunk or backpack to rest your rifle barrel on.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

I guess I need to scrounge some iron. I have always shot the gongs at the range, but they just don't come in nice sizes like 4X5 and 6X8
Saw a piece of 4" strap in the iron pile at work. The owner would likley be glad to let me have 5" of it. But the stand just hasn't fallen off the iron pile and on to my toe yet. That's more likley if I am digging to the pile.

Re: From 100 to 200yd clicks?

If you have a welding shop in your area they usually have pieces of small metal laying around that is 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick - which would be plenty thick for our shooting. Even 5/16 or 3/8 inch thick will give you a good report if that's all you can lay your hands on.

I haven't tried the 1/8th inch diamond plate but I bet that would work well also.
