    Postal LR shoot

    Hello fellow members.

    Gillie has run a successful rimfire shoot and now looking at a varmit shoot as far as 300m.



    I am curious how many members into LR could manage a shoot within 800m.

    If there is not enough interest it wont be worth the effort to set a format. If there is enough, it could be a laugh.
    If you are keen and not friggin tyre kicking, put your name up if you definitely have the means and intention to enter the LR shoot.

    Cheers.

    I can I was being a smart prick...

    Figure something out then dave and we can swing it once this 300m shoot underway now is done and dusted?

    How bout an A3 piece of paper with a 2" bull... 10 shots per target no sighters allowed..

    338 maximum

    400m 600m and 800m????

    Score it by cm from bull... bull hit is 0... target miss scores a full cm distance to the edge from bull... lowest score wins?

    Funny that eh? Your not bald.....on your knoggin at least.
    Yeah I think we will see what the interest is like first. We can always have a trial run at Xmas or something amongst ourselves. Get the varmit one out of the way before we get carried away but I think it is doable. Whadda ya reckon?

    Long range venue is a little bit tricky for me but given enough time i would be able to sort a shoot out to 800m. Ideally we would have a format sorted by November to give me the best chance of competing...

    Once back in October i am setting up a steel shoot in Rotorua to run in November. I will know next month what sort of shoot they want (hunter class short range or medium range ~600m training/try out day). That would be a good oppurtunity to havea go at a long range shoot

    Sorry I'm out for this one.

    Don't think my Speedmaster will make it out to 800m ..... would need to borrow NASA's Hubble telescope to see that far too

    That I would have to see

    Can do 600m at the range but wind is a prick there, could probably sort 800m somewhere.

    This time it will be me bringing down the average Bob !
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.
