You are not wrong. For anybody not familiar, the core hit area on a Ram is about 3" tall x 4" wide, and you better keep your crosshair in the middle of that, since most of the rifles are MOA at best.Repeatedly hitting a 1/5th scale ram, offhand, at 100m would be considered excellent offhand accuracy.
Don't even get me started on those damn turkeys!You are not wrong. For anybody not familiar, the core hit area on a Ram is about 3" tall x 4" wide, and you better keep your crosshair in the middle of that, since most of the rifles are MOA at best.
But I'll add: Meh. The 77m Turkeys are the real SOB. Basically a golf ball at 84 Yards.
I'm usually about 7-8 for 10 on Rams, and have run them. I think I've only EVER hit 8 Turkeys.
Hey Alan, good to have you in thread!Want to have some fun? Shoot offhand at a nra long range target @ 1000yds. Only have done it twice so far, 181 4x is my best. Iron sights, of course
And shoot at little stuff. Say, the paper tab off the end of a box of .22 at 100 yards. Maybe the end of a pop can at same. Try out regular paper plates at 200 yards.A lot of shooters grumble about having an Offhand stage, stating it's completely pointless. I do agree that it is extremely difficult with a typically unbalanced PRS rig; Extra-heavy barrel and no weight in the buttstock.
However, we practice all other positions right? So a little work on the fundamentals of building a proper stance using bone support and dry-fire will do wonders in gaining proficiency.
I absolutely agree with your statement. There isn't a single point of bone support in that silhouette hold and it's strictly "muscle control". Kudos to your abilities!A rifle with sling, jacket, and glove, offhand at 200M, is a lot easier than bare bones offhand.
Good Offhand shooters are hanging out in the 96-98% range on the SR target, and probably 25% X count or better (1.5 MOA X Ring).This is a standard NRA 100-yard highpower rifle target. The 10-ring is 3.35 inches edge-to-edge. Shoot an 89 -93.99 (ten shots in ten minutes) and you shoot an expert score.
Let me know when you're shooting mid 190s on the SR target with a jacket and a glove.
Did i ever fucking say I could?Let me know when you're shooting mid 190s on the SR target with a jacket and a glove.
