This target can be shared.
Staples will print it on 11 x 17 Card Stock which is 65 pound paper product.

Rimfire Discussions / Re: 22lr bench rest ammo

Cabela's often put the Federal Match 922A on sales and recently the price hit $11.98 per box.  15 boxes shipped to the store free.
This ammo is loaded by RWS to R50 standards.
The problem is Cabela's warehouse will not check lot numbers so this leaves one with a problem.
Buying 10 boxes might get you all of one lot number or between two and five lot numbers.
So after testing you found a lot you or your rifle likes. 
They will sell you a case of one lot but if they have not checked lot numbers you have no idea what you are getting.  They simply won't do it so that might equate to not knowing what they are looking at.  At the stores they display a mixed lot of lots in idividual boxes and only once have I got a complete lot number(one brick).
Target Shooting Products will sell a number of single boxes with different lot numbers and will hold sufficient stocks so you can order your preferred lot by the case.
Some don't like paying the shipping for a small lot but it is better that buying a case that no amount of testing will make better.

what is a good starting 22 lr for br

Mission and District Rod and Gun Club has been shooting BR50 for a number of years.
Two classes . . . Benchrest (Unlimited) and Sporter (gopher gun) shot from a bipod and scopes are unlimited.
We have developed our own target which can be shared in order to have a Canadian content.
A set of rules are being developed which are not as onerous as the ARA.
A member of a neighboring club has participated and during the summer a contingent from Vancouver Island participated.
The variety of rifles used are:  Anschutz, BSA, Turbo, Remington, Walther and a 2500X.

Since I don't know where you are but I live close to the border.
With another shooter we ordered 5 flags directly from Graham.
Gave up on getting some used ones.

This was my best target shot at Mission during a match on August 27th, 2016.
Since then one of our other shooters had a 2500.
