    So far we have 6 members that have handed in targets
    Some Multiple for multiple categories

    Im only posting the top 3 for each Category but i am keeping a Excel spread sheet of everyone and a full set of placeings will be posted at the end of the Challenge
    So don’t be afraid to hand in those targets you may not be in the top 3 that’s fine you will see how your rifle and your ability to shoot 5 groups on the same peace of paper it’s not easy just ask anyone who has done it
    A very fun but Potentially frustrating Challenge

    Great fun, been giving the centre fires a rest (lack of components) and getting back to enjoying the humble 22. I know a hand full of guys, from the range that could take this to another level, not forum members but have tried to get them involved. Some extremely clever guys from engineering backgrounds that have turned somewhat ordinary rifles to exceptional rifles.

    Man, I forgot about this, I might try and get out to do it this weekend with a bit of luck.
    Great training for your trigger control that's for sure!

    Ahg F*?k ----This was today---- I know this rifle can do it, it's the nut behind the gun, 5 consecutive targets is a tough challenge. I don't know why any magnification over 10X and my groups suffer with 6 -8 being optimum, can freehold 6X that's my limit before the shakes destroy accuracy. Nice warm day with a light North eastly, had the range to myself, no distractions. Ammo used was some old army issue that was resold threw Gun City 100round packets, got the E stamp on the back.

    Interesting how that Ex Army ammo shot as I acquired some to shoot in my No 8 cadet rifle.
    As for that European 22 ammo with the large P on the box I bought 10000 rounds at 99c a box off Wellington Sporting Arms and found it reasonably accurate in the 10/22 and my Girls when younger would fire off a box quick smart.I still have not used it up 40 years later

    Great idea here guys, I only saw this thread yesterday so I got out the rifles and gave it a nudge. I shot these 4x targets this morning before the wind picked up to bad, I shot a target with CCI SD just for reference and I was testing the Fiocchi hollow points for the first time.

    both of @suthys last targets shot with the b14 .317
    and the 1416 .276
    were both winners capable of takeing 1st place from @6x47 at .359

    I'm scoring this comp based on your best target for each category as you know
    so once you enter a target better than your previous one for that particular category the previous one is now void
    I'm doing it this way to share the love an stop one person from winning the hole lot

    so you can enter as many times as you like in each category but only the best target for each category is valid

    I pulled mine out the other day and put its nightforce back on it so good to go!
    I have printed target's so just need to sit down and pull the trigger.
    Shot yesterday and today but only a couple of my thirty cals.
    To many rifles not enough time!

    Bloody 22 shooting "writ large". Been waiting for a good morning to test the new to me Lithgow, got the morning but had a hot round that blew a group. I'll have to try again if I'm to disturb the leaderboard I think!
