Question

#6 Post by stl303 » Fri May 04, 2012 11:51 am

OK, time for a serious question.

1) Are we limited in the # of entries? e.g. can I submit target sets shot with different guns?

2) can we run it at least until the END of June? this will be a weekends-only endeavour for me, and those are a precious commodity in the month of May..

Thanks for hosting!

Yes if you have an Axis and Allies collection you can submit per gun.

It most likely will run through June. I want a lot of entries.

Count me out. My Mosin would need the target to be 8'x11' not letter sized.

actually count me out too, wilson shoals is only 75 yards max, we don't have a 100 yard range.

Let me think about it maybe just no multiplier. Shoot it and we will see.

I'm in for this one. I like the time allowed on this one as well. I don't get much "me" time unless I take it out of the office.

Maybe reduce the size of the 100 yard target by 25% and shoot it at 75 yards? Somebody check my thinking...

I know that principle is often applied in CMP matches. They reduce the size of the 200 yard target and shoot it at 100, etc. The ballistics are going to be exactly the same, but it's a reasonable approximation.

Don't be so glum mate! You're not *disqualified* if you don't land 5 rounds.. you just lose points.

I might only hit 2-3 out of 5 on that size target at that range (rested), but I'm still gonna play. Hell I'll be lucky to hit ANY at that range offhand! :lol:

Nothing bugs me more than the matches I see on forums like rimfirecentral.com, where every single entry is nothing but center-punched X's. Where's the challenge in that? Just shoot what ya got and have fun!

Stock WW2 only, or does my modernized SKS count? (Which, of course, is less accurate with its light composite parts than its original wood parts.)

I'll probably do my Mosin, too, but I'm more accurate with the SKS.

Paladin, when I print the target in landscape mode, the circle has a 3-3/4" diameter. But when I print it in portrait mode, it is larger, with a 4-3/4" diameter. (This is referring to the target circle, not the box surrounding it.)

What should the diameter of the target circle be?

We, yay us, we gained an inch :)

I imagine my groups at 100 yards are going to be larger than the target. There is a CMP match during my Sunday range time tomorrow, so I won't even be able to shoot the Mosin until next weekend.

It is hard to find a uniform target everyone can print the only other choice would be to mail targets.
