Taurus Armed Rifle Shootout - March 2013

Pick up to 10 categories in which to submit an entry!
One target entry per class per shooter.

Standing Offhand Categories - may use sling
1. Rimfire rifle - 25 yards - 5 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)
2. Rimfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)
3. Rimfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (magnified optics 1.5x and above)
4. Centerfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)

Bench Rest Categories - bench rested* on fore end only or bipod (no mechanical rests**)
5. Rimfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)
6. Rimfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (magnified optics 1.5x and above)
7. Rimfire rifle - 100 yards - 3 shots - (magnified optics 1.5x and above)
8. Centerfire rifle - 50 yards - 5 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)
9. Centerfire rifle - 100 yards - 3 shots - (iron sights or non-magnified red dot sights)
10. Centerfire rifle - 100 yards - 3 shots - (magnified optics 1.5x and above)

Target ~ Any target the shooter chooses whether handmade, printed from computer, purchased at store, or purchased at shooting range

Shots per target ~ 5 shots 25 yards and 50 yards; 3 shots at 100 yards. No flyers to be removed from groups fired.

Scoring ~ Group size in inches + farthest shot from center of target in inches = Scoring Measurement
Example: a 1.250" group with farthest shot 2.410" from the center of the target gives a scoring measurement of 3.660".
- Smallest Scoring Measurement wins the class entered. All measurements are made center-to-center.
- If there is a tie in the Scoring Measurement between entries, the entry with the closest farthest shot from center is the 1st tie breaker.
- If another tie breaker is needed, then the smallest group size is the 2nd tie breaker.

Number of entries ~ One target entry per class per shooter

Each entry requires a photo of the target posted by the shooter with measurements marked on target using ruler/calipers or with target software. Each entry also requires the mention of the Make, Model, and Caliber of the rifle. If optics are used, please include a description of that, too. A photo of the rifle used in the entry would be helpful as well. As with all internet shooting competitions, this is an honor system event.

* Fore end of rifle may be rested on sand bags, rubber, carpet, wood, etc. or shooter's hand/forearm/elbow. Rear of the rifle must not be supported by anything other than the shooter's free hand and/or shoulder. No rear sand bags or rests allowed.
** A mechanical rest is any rest that uses a screw thread or other mechanical device to adjust level, elevation, or windage.

___________________________________________

The last date for a target submission is after dark on the last day of March 2013. Any targets posted a bit late due to time zone differences will be allowed to enter. I will do my best to have all entries compiled by the end of April 2, 2013. :angel:

Maybe one of these years it'll warm up enough that I can go outside and do some shooting without freezing to death or have the wind die down enough so it doesn't push my bullet over to the target next to mine so I can actually participate in this event.

I haven't gone this long without doing some fun shooting in 3 years...this winter sucks!

I have to say, I wouldn't know how to handle the cold that y'all have up there! Hopefully, the weather will subside a bit so you can show us your shootin' skills! :)

I was out for 2+ hours yesterday - right about the freezing mark but damp. As soon as I started doing that 200 yd march (to and from the targets) it didn't seem too bad. Sitting and chrono testing—not so nice!

I'm ready to go again AND the March pistol shoot as well (that I'm already pretty familiar with). ;)

Looking at a new scope for my AR - the Bushnell next to a Simmons that I got recently does not match up. Simmons has a HD 1.5 -5 that gets great reviews all over the net and Amazon has it for $80 - it is still in the competition range that I like. I may be on red dot again - sell one to get the other - we'll see.

What does HD in this reference stand for? :confused:

Gotcha! That Nikon scope on my Zastava .22 WMR rifle is a shotgun scope as well. I didn't get it for heavy recoil duty, I got it for the 75 yard parallax and it was on sale! :)

As well as you shoot, I'm gonna reach through the internet and smear Vasoline on your lenses. :laugh:
Yeah that was a crazy thread about the powers of the Moderators - much less SUPER Moderators!! ;)

HD = Heavy Duty. It's actually built as a shotgun scope but a LOT of the reviews talk about rifle and AR use. It's right in that 3 gun range of CQB:

Pro Hunter 1.5-5x32 Matte ProDiamond Shotgun - SM517792 - The Consumer Link

The Simmons on my 22 puts the Bushnell to shame!
Bought the scope Saturday - won't be a huge change but .5x more magnification and if it as clear and focuses as well as the other Simmons I'll be smiling!

The other one is up on eBay and I'm not recommending it on the forum on purpose.

I wasn't going to do any shooting this month, but since I have to go to the other house, I'm going to make a trip to Leeds firing Range on Saturday morning.
Forecast is for a morning low of 35 and warming up to 65 with a Northeast wind at 5.
Downrange is Northwest, so a slight crosswind from the right.
Going to sight in the Savage for 100 yards, then try Rule #7 on 9 targets.
Will post results later this month.
Oh, and I WILL be checking for ammo at the Wally Worlds in the area, Lancaster, Chester, Indian Land, etc.
Hopefully find SOMETHING!

Simmons scope arrived today (1.5 -5 X 32 for the AR) so I'll do some pistol and rifle tomorrow for sure. Was going to be today but put it off a day to take the new gear - bore sighted on my longest in-home 'shot' through 3 rooms - 50-ish feet will get me on paper. Initial indications are good.

Why do the neighbors look at me so when I stand in the middle of the street looking through a rifle scope - what's up with that?!?! :D
