    nzhs rimfire challenge

    have devised a little friendly forum shooting comp for the forum

    rules as follows
    1 rimfire only
    2 all targets shot at 50m or yards im not going to bitch about if its yards or meters so you are better off working in yards as its closer
    3 only the official target may be entered down load it here https://www.dropbox.com/s/i5rxjuo6i0...arget.pdf?dl=0
    4 all targets measured and scored by me.... the official score keeper
    5 any rest set up can be used excluding lead sleds
    6 unlimited sighters can be fired on the 2 spare targets
    7 you can enter as many times as you like with multiple firearms if you wish
    8 be honest
    9 have fun
    10 be safe

    there will be 4 categories
    1 bolt action
    2 semi auto
    3 classic or vintage 30 years or older rifle (modern scopes allowed)
    4 overall winner

    (if there's enough people that want to shoot open sights i will make a purpose made target for that category)

    all targets sent to nzhsrimfire@gmail.com for scoring ether scan and email your target or take a photo my target measuring software can adjust to the size of the photo
    if you want a pdf of the target email and i will reply with one

    how the targets will be scored
    you will shoot 5 5 shot groups (25 rounds) on the 5 scoring targets 5 shots on each
    scoring goes purely on group size so if the groups aren't in the center it don't matter
    your groups will be added together and divided to get an average this average will be your score
    so we are looking for consistency not just that one in 50 tiny group

    target dimensions are 1" outer ring 1/2" (1moa at 50 yards) and 0.224" center just a touch bigger than a 22 projectile

    there is no prize at this stage pure brag rights

    entry's start now and end at 8pm on January 30th 2022

    i know most of us wont be able to shoot for at least a week but there is some lucky buggers on here that could do it without leaveing home so GET AT IT

    awesome, just bloody awesome. Thanks for taking the initiative and getting this going.

    I printed the target but couldn't download it (without joining and paying for dropbox) Is it possible to change this ??

    Will shoot one tomorrow if the wind and weather here permits!

    drop box is free for less than 2 gb however you do need to join sadly
    if you have issues
    email me at nzhsrimfire@gmail.com and i will email you a pdf of the target that goes for everyone

    if you click on the drop box link from a computer it takes you right to a printable version
    if you are doing it from a mobile you will need to download the app so probably easier to email if that's the case

    Presumably pump, straight pull and lever action will be included in the bolt action group......I think I might have a go at this....

    Not to mention @Dundee has short legs so his fifteen paces would only be 5 of anyone of normal stature

    have made a open sight version of the target exactly the same target but 3 times the size
    in order to keep on an a4 there are no sighter targets or details on the page if there's enough open sight shooters i will make it available
