Bridger - yes, I saw that (& Harry's comment about Printer Ink usage :D )

I don't really do Target stuff but would think a 12x version of that 25metre Target (ie half the number but bigger aimpoints) might be good?

I see things are going nicely :)

When I get home from vacation I'm going to have a talk with my neighbour. He has a 100m+ facility and I should be able to "borrow" some room in it.

And to encourage the brits: Last weekend there was a 100m match here in The Netherlands. Yeah, we have those these days. And lo and behold there was someone with a 12fpe Weihrauch HW100 who entered and took 5th place with only one point (92/100) behind the no. 4 shooter who also printed the smallest group. That smallest group was 22mm, shot with an AA s200 in .177 cal ("FAC").

And in other news: This e-competition got its own subforum. And the guy who came up with the idea is moderator for it. Oh joy. Please put your results, comments, thoughts and discussion in here from now on!

Please consider putting the rules and links to suitable targets into a seperate topic and make it a sticky.

Enjoy, and I'll be joining all y'all soon :)

The idea is fine. And even if I didn't like it and the rest does, why not facilitate?

The most important is having fun, and what better fun than fun you can share, eh?

Just heard from Harry Fuller again.
His advice for longer range shooting...
Keep the target as simple as possible & use big, bold lines.
