May is here. More daylight for getting to the range. Looking forward to some great shooting.
The rules: It is open to all 30 cal. +/- iron sighted, as issued military rifles from 1900 to the cold war. Some examples, M14/M1A, US Krag, Springfield 03, US 1917, Garand, M1 Carbine, 8mm Mausers, 7.7 Japanese Ariskas, G3 and FAL clones, SKS, AK47, BM59, SMLE, Swiss K31, Russian Mosin-Nagant and Tokarev, British SMLE, etc. I fully expect the M14s to dominate but I think it will be fun to bring out those other old war horses and show them off , maybe educate everyone of on how accurate they were or not.
Rules, 8” Dirty Bird targets, (Walmart, Academy Sports, Amazon and other shops) iron sights, 100 yards, sling or bench with bag supports, no lead sleds or clamping devices. Scoring, if the blackened mark made by the bullet clearly severs a line, take the higher score. If you get a flyer in the white score a 7 for it. Challenges will run 1st of months till end. Write rifle type, ammo, score and date on your targets and post them. Multiple entries permitted. Just for fun contest, You goal is to continue to beat your previous best score until you get the elusive 100.
If you shoot other than Dirty Bird target and occasionally want to show off a great group, feel free to post but DBs are preferred as it makes for easier comparisons. If you would like to demo post a modern rifle like a FM SCAR or AR 10 feel free. I‘ll add to list separately.
