    Well FN . . .

    Post your course of fire. Tell us what target to use and list some simple rules.

    Maybe you will get some guys interested and you will have your match.

    Something to consider though: A lot of shoorters have access to 100 yard ranges. Not many have access to 200 yards.

    Also: The most common target accessable to everyone, and available at all Walmart stores is the NRA 100 yard smallbore target with the 2 inch 10 ring and 1 inch X ring. That target would be a real challange at 200 yards with a centerfire.

    Joe :)

    Thats what I am using at 200 and 300 yards. I use a .22 target for 25 yards at 100 yards. at 600 yards I use the standard size 6x5 foot. don't get much chance to shoot 600 yards, you have to have a bud with you, and no one likes standing in the target pit. Also if you don't have a walkie talkie it stinks. a couple minutes drive to the other end.

    no particular rules, semi or bolt. 5 shot groups. one rule is, you must have a ruler in the picture or some kind of designating marker a spent casing is fine. I will find a target that is easy to find and available anywhere and get back to yas.

    If ya wana shoot groups , , ,

    It don't matter what kind of target you are using.

    Ya just need a reticule rule to measure the group size.
