    @17brno in the screen shot of a score sheet you posted, is that the velocities in the top corner? If so, is it very reliable / accurate ?

    I can answer that. Yes you see the number 1st shot 2nd shot etc going down the left. The centre line is fps, 3rd line is where it hit on the target.
    The speed can be hit and miss, depends how well the sensors are calibrated. Often one target will read different to the other. If you know your muzzle speed you will know if it's pretty close looking at your drop chart. I've seen some readings I think are what they should be, others are way out. If you don't know your muzzle velocity you could ask another shooter if he or she thinks it's about right with there rifle. It's ok for looking at deviation.

    Thanks for that. I was curious because my 500 yd showed figures in the 1800 fps range but my 2 x 600 yd showed 2140 fps.
    Dont know my Muzzle velocity but I figure 10 rounds at the 600 yd should be fairly indicative.

    My 300 velocities were well off but spot on for the 600 according to my tables.

    The targets at 500 yrds are at a angle to the mound we put wedges behind the cronograph at the target to bring them more square on to the mound but i would take the fps readouts with a grain of salt
    We have shot at 600yrds with a magneto speed on the barrel and compared the speeds and they seem to correlate ie higher speed registerd on the magneto speed we got higher speed registering at the target
    Mike at the club has put a lot of effort into the electronic targets and we think compared to a few other clubs ours ours are reliable and relatively trouble free .Bully is correct that the speeds from target to target can change i have shot at a few ranges with electronic targets and some you knew if you ended up on a particular target weird shit would happen especially at the longer ranges.
    A lot of this comes down to poor set up ,human error or understanding the workings of the electronic targets

    Somebody who was out at the range on sunday wanted to know the speeds of my 308 at 1,000 these were shot at otorahanga on the same day and you can see the difference in speeds between targetsName:  Screenshot_2017-04-02-10-46-28.jpg

    Thanks for that, so despite differing speeds from differing targets / screens there still appears to be consistent reading of velocity spread.
    ( nice shooting by the way ).

    Hi JD
    I was shooting on the Same target as you and got the same thing, velocity at 600 was higher than 500. I guessed it was due to shooting across targets but all velocities at 300 500 and 600 were different from prediction on Shooter App yet trajectory was spot On. So agrain of Salt is needed...

    Te Puke is the most interesting formal range I've shot on- The "mounds" are more" firing points'' and located in saddles and on top of high points- shooting acrOss sloping faces and large hidden gullies. Very nice. Exellent site for the Clubhouse too. Special thanks to the owner for use of the farm land and There was no stock to be seen so that mosthave been a bit of work for them.

    I'd recommend all hunters to go there when the hold the next day. You just need your gun Zeroed for IOOM (or 200) and people will tell you how much to come up ft 300500 and 600 and you will be on target. Yov Can see exactly where eachShot falIs as you shoot so can adjust and determine your elevation well by the time you've put 7 shots down.

    I was using the free Strelok app and like you say the speeds a bit off but the elevation predictions are pretty good.

    I hope they go to two shoots a season as well, although I'll most likely join the club any ways

    We are thinking of holding two or more of these shoots a season , have to run it by the committee and the farmer and find a suitable day first

    I would be keen next time. Unfortunately i was busy sighting in new scopes and doing a bit of load development on Sunday.

    Absolutely true. If you scroll back to 17bruno's next post of the screenshots at 1000 yards, you can see that the MOA grid imposed on the target area is different for each of the targets. The reason being that the rh target is still set for 900 yards and not 1000, whereas the lh target is correctly set for 1000. Human error!

    The good news is that it doesn't affect the score, as the same target face with the same scoring dimensions is used for 8,9, and 10 hundred yards. The software just overlays a different MOA grid. The same at 5 and 6 where the same target dimensions are used. If it should happen to be left on 300 when you're shooting at 600, then your shooting starts to look very shabby quite quickly.

    Te Puke Rifle Club has had several requests from competitors who attended our Hunter Class shoots, to run another shoot during the season.

    The club AGM was held Saturday, and after discussion we decided to give it a go.
    The date for the first Hunter Class shoot for the season is the 4th November 2018. This competition is open to the general public and will follow the format of previous shoots.

    You don't have to wait till November to try our range, as we will be open for business on Saturday 1st September, and every Saturday over the summer.

    Just a reminder about our approaching Open shoot for Sporting/Hunter rifles which is open to all members of the public. This we run as a fundraiser and an introduction to targetshooting in an effort to make ourselves visible to the shooting community. We are fortunate to be sponsored by Whakatane Hunting and Fishing who have provided the bulk of the prize-table for this event with additional aid from Hamertons Lawyers and CollingsGuns, both also from Whakatane.

    As requested, we will run two of these public shoots this season, and the date for the first shoot is rapidly approaching. It is the 4th November 2018. To help us in preparing for the event, we would appreciate those intending to attend, to book their spot by contacting our club Secretary. His name is Alan and the contact number is 021 251 2843.
