    Beth you could use a 1/2 size target it simulate shooting at 200 yards or a 1/4 size for 300 yards. The major difference would be the wind factor at longer ranges.

    So are you shooting at 100 yards, 100 feet, 33 yards, 3600 inches, 1200 inches or 30 feet?

    not bad at all Beth, pretty darn good.
    saturday I was sighting the cheap Tasco on my 10-22 and got 1 1/4" groups at 100yds (CCI mini mag HP). made my buddy look bad who had trouble staying on paper at 50 yds with my boy's norinco and a 4x20. but then again he was struggling to hit clays with a 12g

    Here is the way it works for shooting:

    Shooting ranges are called by their yardage, with a couple of exceptions. Common ranges are 25, 100, 200, 300, 500, 1000 yards

    One exception is an American indoor range. They are normally 50 feet.

    Another exception is shooting games where historically the ranges are called out in meters like 50, 100, 150, 200 meters. Silhouette shooting is a prime example and it that way because it was originally a Mexican game not American (the rest of the world uses the Metric system whereas we are stuck in the English measurement system...not even England uses it anymore). The difference between a yard and a meter is about 10% with the meter being longer by about 10%.

    Here's some common usage for ranges: Pistol accuracy is normally measured at 25 yards for centerfire pistols. 22LR accuracy is commonly measured at 50 feet. Centerfire rifle accuracy is usually measured at 100 yards for comparisons.

    Finally, hitting a golf ball at 100 yards with a 22LR rifle is absolutely excellent shooting. Wind and the balistic arc of the low powered 22 cartridge makes repeatable accuracy extremely difficult. You are doing very well indeed.
