    nzhs rimfire challenge rule updates just a few things i over looked

    please don't reply to this thread i would like to make sure that if I have something important to say I want to make sure it can easily be seen by all as I know a lot of us don't read entire threads (myself included) please direct your reply's to the original thread here https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....ml#post1205695

    copy and paste of original post

    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://1drv.ms/b/s!Au9rAlFEGHy-iy_R1tivG91nJZ9f
    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

    I don't want to leave anyone out so am making a few edits to be more inclusive here they are

    1. I've had a few people tell me the targets are hard to see in blue I don't want this to be about who can see and who cant so there's now 3 targets all exactly the same but in 3 colors
    blue https://1drv.ms/b/s!Au9rAlFEGHy-iy_R1tivG91nJZ9f
    red https://1drv.ms/b/s!Au9rAlFEGHy-iy1Pg5GfxyUFRajU
    black https://1drv.ms/b/s!Au9rAlFEGHy-iy7CBds2sbODXgNv
    all targets are allowed choose what suits your eyes the best

    2 modifying targets when I thought about this target it was more based around more target based rifles with big target style scopes in which case a small aiming point in this case 1moa is a good thing but we have had a lot of interest from the hunter class of rifle with small scopes or classics with classic maybe not so clear scopes
    or simply people who's eyes aren't the best
    the target has a 1"outer ring which is just white its mainly there for me as the software i use to score the targets needs a 1" reference for calibration
    i will allow coloring of the outer ring if you need it (IMO this is actually a disadvantage as a larger aiming point means you are not going to be holding as precise)

    finally just a few clear ups
    if you have a rifle that qualifies for classic class but also bolt action or semi auto (or all 3 looking at you @hamsav bloody tricky bugger lol) yes you are welcome to enter a target for each category

    classic rifles I'm calling 30years or older with basic modifications like a scope and suppressor
    but still pretty original apart from that

    open sights includes peep sights etc (if we get that class off the ground)

    any more questions flick me a pm, tag me in a post over in the other thread https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....allenge-74595/ or flick me an email nzhsrimfire@gmail.com

    cheers rambo
