You're welcome, Tom.... I agree 100%, trying to shoot a ragged 5-shot hole at 100 yards with an airgun is asking a bit much, I think.... As I said, I'm quite happy with our current target, I just wanted everyone to think about it....

To shoot a 5X currently, with a .25 cal, you have to shoot 5 shots into 0.7 MOA or less.... That is less than the typical wind drift of a good pellet in a 1 MPH crosswind at 100 yards....  :o

I may need to get in on this before it gets more difficult!
I think that I can get 4 MOA but seems out of the realm of possibility 🤔.

I'm sure with the right pellet or slug, that .25 Condor can do it! Bring it on.

Yeah, the Condor would be the better choice.  I had been using it with a cheap red dot, it's light so it was a good hunting rig. Just by chance I put a scope on it. I was shooting at a white spot on a tree across the pond when I noticed that most shots were within about 2 inches. I wasn't really concentrating all that much. I lazered that dead tree, it was 93 yards. Now when I read this I'm thinking that it just may be possible.  I never even considered it before last week.
I've already moved that scope to another rifle, so back it goes. Now to print those targets.

I usually set my scope on 30 power so I can see the pellet holes as I shoot them. Gets a little harder with my BSA scopes on 24 power as I have poor vision.

I like the NUAH target(s). The (s) would be my caveat since there are several targets that fit the NUAH rules. If I were a shooter here, I would actually prefer the targets I prefer to shoot at 100 yards. Just sayin'  ;D

Interesting idea but I voted to keep the current target.  We have such few competitors as it is and making it more difficult to get a 50/50 may discourage people from joining.  Yes, there are several shooters that are getting 50/50 regularly but not that many getting 5X.  Until we get more competitors shooting 5X's regularly, I think it is a little premature to make it harder.  I really want to see more shooters entering their targets and not just a few regulars (and semi-regulars like myself).  It seems like all the GTA matches are losing people left and right and it saddens me. I enjoy competing against others, not so much to try to win every match but to see how others are doing, what they are shooting, (and the humorous exchanges and comments).

I forgot to add that if truth be told, my opinion is probably a little selfish too.  I haven't shot a 50/50 5X yet and I'm pretty sure I won't even get close with the smaller target.   :P

Voting is closed for this poll, and two-thirds of those responding want to keep the status-quo.... I see no reason to make the challenge any more difficult, so we will be staying with the current target and scoring system....

Bob,

As I mentioned in another thread, late to the game, not been shooting much this year.

Just a suggestion, rather then change the target, what about a forced position? 
As I mentioned before, what about sling supported, glove, shooting mat, prone? 
Shooting jacket optional.

Perhaps its own division.

Neat idea, but the rules might be a bit complicated, and I'm not so sure the support would be there.... However, if somebody who is interested in seeing different positions, or even a 3-position, wants to have a Match, they could simply post one and see if anybody bites!.... I once shot in and won a 100 yd. "turkey shoot" with my .222 Remington, two shots from the bench and one standing and scored a "29".... I think the 10 was 2" (like NUAH) but the 9 was 4" (like our 8-ring).... the typical sighting targets used at rifle ranges before the "diamond" shaped targets became popular.... I did a lot of 3-position (prone, kneeling, standing) .22LR indoor when I was younger, got my "Silver Shield" doing that (45 years ago).... My knees are not up to it now....  ::)

I was thinking of a scaled version of NRA High Power.
Yeah, not sure many would "bite."

Someone did post NRA High Power targets scaled to 50yrds for .22.
I have them on the hard drive somewhere . . .
