    I can't print out targets (computer in shop and no printer) so made up a target to see how my shooting is. Well it isn't the best but good enough for rabbits. Rifle is a Krico 5 shot bolt action and ammo is the Aussie made subsonic in 40 gr, aim points are right about an inch. This target isn't for the comp just wanted to see how I went , need to improve try again another day soon.Name:  image.jpeg

    I will message you when I get my computer back, this I pad hasn't been set up for e mail. I will practice a bit more on my home made targets. I use tracking ink it has a sponge rubber applicator which is pretty much one inch so close to the offical size.
    I will let you know should be soon.

    I could do with some targets if they are on offer . Dont have a printer since the student left home and swiped it .....

    I do have access to photocopiers though so can make some from an original.

    Haven't been able to score any Eley 10x, Club or anything else worth shooting tried Target Nz, apparently waiting for a shipment from Germany and as I'm not a member, they are sitting on their stocks, I know they batched and stashed the best of stuff, all fair enough. Been trying different stuff with not great results, anyway a shooter from way back, checked out his stash and for nostalgia value, here they are.

    I well remember that ICI from way back - like 50-60 years ago when I was a wee fellow. We popped plenty with that ammo on the farm.

    That second packet with the overstamped "P" is awful ammo. Tried it back in the 1980s or so and it truly was bad

    I have an unoponed brick of 500 of the red ICI and a few loose boxes of 50. It is ~55 years old.
    I fired off a few several years ago. About 1 in 5 ruptured thru just above the rim.
    Ammo looks in good condition though. Won't fire any more, too unnerving!

    It was the ammo of the day.

    If it helps, I can vouch for these guys: https://www.printonline.co.nz/

    I used their services to print some of these targets and a bunch of others before I was allowed back into the office to access a printer myself.
