Rimfire Discussions / Re: Best BR50 target
« on: August 24, 2015, 05:41:13 PM »
I mount my targets on their side and have no problem adjusting side to side, rest will cover more than 2 targets width. Ammo was Center X and wind was almost non existent. Don't know the price of importing the targets as our match director looks after that.

Couple questions

- How are you finding your new Hall one piece rest for moving around the target from sighter to scoring when you get a wind change that you have to shoot through?
- what ammo were you using?
- I know you just got your flags, how was the wind?
- How much is the shipping to bring the targets in from Killoughs?

Hall Manufacturing calls it a rifle return system, it returns the rifle back to its original position after firing. I tied 5 shots on another target and didn't like it, seems to bounce. I prefer to gently push the rifle back into the original position. I took it off tonight. I don't think it is allowed in a lot of competitions in the USA and I know it's not allowed at my range.

Yes the whole section moves. No problem covering 2 ARA 50 yard benchrest targets at 50 yards for windage and elevation. Got out this morning to try out my new rest, I think it's going to work out. Range was 100 metres, 10 shots per target. It did rain a bit and winds were slight but switchy. NOTE target 2 should be 299 not 300.

The new rest.

The rifle.

Like Jim said in the results it was tough shooting. I shot my first target and six bulls on the second target with Center X but scores were poor I think because of the temperature. I switched to a known good lot of Eley Match for the rest of the second target and targets 3 and 4. I think it took about 50 rounds to season the bore to the new ammo. The fourth target (2250) was good one, I think I'll stick with the Eley while we have these hotter days. I'm hoping my new rest will show up this week. I don't know if it will be safe to post pics of it with the way my thread went asking about one piece rests. ;D My wind flags were ordered 6 weeks ago and they are supposed to ship this week.

Thanks for the write up Jim, as usual well done with some humor added. Yes the winds have been tricky this year so far, my Graham wind flags should show up next week so now it will be practicing in the wind time. ;) Gord

I would check all the Ontario club websites and see who offers rimfire BR.
 This might help -

Don't know you Bill but I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm a relatively new BR shooter, just 4 years and this site was recommended by a friend so I thought I would join. I'm always looking for info and ways to improve my scores, I just posted the topic to find out what one piece rests others were using and the pros/cons of their rests. As I posted I have a new rest on the way. I'll be sure not to post about it. ;D

We also have the sporter class for those that don't want a full blown BR rifle. We get anywhere from 12 - 18 shooters and about 50/50 split on BR/sporter. We don't have any prizes, just bragging rights. ;D Rifles seen at matches vary from CZ to top of the line customs. Here's a link to our rules -

What rules do you use governing equipment? Here in Mission we shoot the the ARA target, ARA rules, worst edge scoring. One piece rests are allowed, from the ARA rules - "9.2.0 Rests

9.2.1 Any rest may be used to shoot from the bench, so long as any such rest prevents

            The barreled action from being affixed to the bench in an immovable manner."
Original post was just a question to see what others use  ;D

Headed to the range this am for a bit of practice. Shot 4 targets of 50 metre targets and few at 100 metres. Still having problems contending with wind (no flags yet) but trying to make do watching the leaves in the trees but they are no where near the targets. Shot a couple of 2100's and 1900's at 50 metres on the ARA target, still room for improvement. ;D Shot one of my 50 metre sighters for a 5 shot group that measured .169". Shot a few targets at 100 metres. The 100 metre top score possible is 150/15X, most scored in the 148/149 but I did have one nice one that scored 150/11X. I blew a couple of nice groups at 100 metres, one 5 shot group was .584" and for 4 shots it was .251". The next 5 shot one was .875" and 4 shot was .375". Isn't that always the way, going great and then shooter error pops up. :-\ Still a nice day to be out.

Very nice! I finally found the web address so you can print your own target. They will come out as 2 pages so I just tape them together, I also use cover stock paper as it is heavier and gives good holes to measure with a plug gauge.

Looks like it would score about 1850, had to tell without a plug gauge. That said that is an excellent score for your first time. What rifle/scope/rest/ammo were you using? Here are the flags I just ordered on Friday The ones with the round balls.
