    Hey guys shooting this challenge - do you have a particular order you shoot the targets ?? Does anyone shoot one shot at each target in a round robin until all have 5 in them ??

    don't think it really matters tbh the less you have to move shooting positions between groups the better though

    I shoot 5 shots at each target then set up for the next one. It certainly is harder than it looks and inconsistent ammo doesn't help, might buy some Eley target stuff and try that. Have put a 4x Leupold on my Krico which is far better than the Simmons I had on it , sighted it in at 25 yards and had 5 shots in a enlarged one hole. 50 yards will be a lot harder.

    We were out at range today sharpening couple of rifles for a bunny shoot this weekend.

    @gadgetman gets the new-to-me Howa 223 shooting 0.4" at 100 with factory Fiocchi SP 55gr, then calls it quits. Not going to improve easily on that. The Howas really are fine shooters.

    Then I put few groups through a little Marlin 795SS semiauto to tweak it. Just 3 shot groups for this purpose, but it shot best of 0.39", and the average of three groups was 0.58". And that's not 50 meters - its 75m. That is very sharp for a wee worker semi - and that's using hunting CCI minimag HV ammo which is not match quality. At 50m that'd probly equate to about a 0.38-39" group average. Hmmm.. must test it at 50 sometime and with better ammos. It is a treat to find accurate hunter 22s, and the little Marlin 22s with their excellent microgroove barrels can be very sharp indeed.

    Rightly called it quits. Aim of the range mission was just to sight in. Mission accomplished. Now bring on the bunnies. If you miss it will be your fault.

    @Tentman I could be wrong here but I'm guessing that's one of the best 5x 5shot targets you've ever shot and if so congrats!! That is some very fine shooting and I bet it was really satisfying to see everything come together like that.

    Thanks, Yes - its only taken several years and quite a few rifles to get to this point. Now I can focus on other things haha, like shooting in the wind, from unsupported positions etc etc.

    But seriously very nice target
    One day you must show me how to shoot properly

    I'm a totally self taught shooter and primarily shoot at things that are made out of food
    Seems to me a lot easier to shoot at food
    Cheaper also
