    25 yard offhand challenge for lever action rifles and carbiness

    Same target as the 'Battle rifle and rimfire challenge' and same rules.
    25 yards offhand
    iron sights
    10 shots fired on one target
    one category for rimfires
    one category for centerfires

    one category for scoped guns no matter what caliber but no glory or attaboys if you do

    Post in this thread, mark your target with user name, date, category, score and if you would please; post a picture of the gun and ammo used.

    Example:

    May 14 2013 1400 hours, Old Grump, Centerfire
    Gun Win 94, 32 Win Spcl
    Ammo Remington Express 170 gr





    I don't generally shoot 10 rounds rapidly out of this gun and I forgot how hot that little sucker gets. The last 3 shots I could barely hang on to the gun. Tried to get the shoot over with in a hurry because I had yard work I wanted to get to before weather rolled in.

    Sounds like fun! Maybe it will get me off my but to get my Winchester sighted in. Last time I shot it the rounds were landing 2" low and 5" left at 50 yards when aiming at the bull's eye. I will get out in the next week or so.

    Does this replace the other match that only you and I were shooting in?

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Hopefully it will get people shooting and they will shoot in both. I plan on running both to December but so far lots of talk but only two shooters. I figure since nobody was wanting to shoot pistol except mostly the two of us last year I'd try something different. You would think on a gun board devoted to AK's somebody would have taken the challenge. If not maybe this one will get them out of the house to the range.

    25 yards I can shoot at the local range, so want to try... but my .450 marlin is somewhat pricy to shoot! (But isn't anything nowadays?)

    The pther match is 25 yards too in spite of the title. If you have an iron sighted 22 you can still shoot in that one.

    Lets see, 10 rounds a month for the next 7 months, better rearrange your budget, this could get pricey at over $3 a round. Your range is going to love you for that shooting that.

    Here is mine. Not a good score but I am not too unhappy with the grouping. It must be me again, though. Now instead of shooting low and left I was shooting high and left, consistently. Bother. This will probably be the only time I shoot this one though. I may shoot again next month, but I don't keep a lot of .32 WSP around.
