July 2017 Levergun Postal Match

#1 Post by Griff » Sat Jul 01, 2017 8:09 am

This thread is for posting of your pictured targets ONLY! If you want to brag on or cut someone's submission... do it in another topic... (Maybe here: Competition Shoot.

You can submit either a picture or a scanned image. Must include a description or photo of your equipment & load in your submission post. See rule #7... if we don't know who you are, you can't win... July 1 - 31.

BASIC Rules: - let's keep it simple -

1. Repeating Lever-action rifle, center-fire pistol caliber ONLY (.32 to .45 cal).
(a) Repeating Lever-action Rifle, center-fire Rimmed "RIFLE" cartridge. (.25 - .45 cal. with FN bullets appropriate to tube magazines. Need not be tube magazine rifle).
2. Shot in the free standing position. (unsupported)
3. Iron sights or tang sights ONLY - no fancy stuff - scopes etc.
4. B6 target - (link to download and print a copy below).
5. 10 Shots only
6. 50 yards (ish)
7. Image of target and with name and date written on target posted for consideration, Include description of rifle & load.
8. A maximum of 4 targets submitted for each Calendar month. (For both firearms... if submitting under pistol and rifle cartridge categories - NOT 4 each - let's not over-work the judges).
9. Your highest score counts.
10. Winner posted at the beginning of the next Calendar month.
11. Open to all members of the forum as of July 1st, 2017.

Approved target:

Scoring: Count 10,9,8 and 7 if you hit the paper. A full cut of a line counts to the next highest value. Where there is a tie the most Xs hit in the 10 ring will be the tie- breaker!

Good luck and get out there and get shooting!!!

Traveler, I'll confirm your 91-2X score, but... is that target the same size as the one linked above? I looks like it may have slightly smaller rings.

Its an Optical illusion - the linked B6 target is an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, and the B6 target I printed out at work is 11 x 17, so you see the complete 7 ring and part of the 6 ring. The actual ring sizes are identical in both targets. I'm going to try again this week - trying to keep everything in the black to improve score - I keep throwing one of the shots in the white...

I took a couple of the grandboys out shooting a few days ago, and amongst the tin-can popping I got some targets shot. Usually the little devils put some 22 cal holes in my targets but somehow these stayed clean (at least of 22 cal holes). It was a great day for shooting-- upper 80's, very little wind. One of the gkids even brought some of his own 22's. I don't know why I didn't shoot better on such a perfect day, but here is what I did.
