NUAH Submission
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:40:25 PM »
Howdy all, I would like to submit my gun, range and target for consideration into the NUAH club as Sharpshooter.

I shot a 1-7/8" group with my new DAR Gen 3 in .25 caliber.
Shooting JSB Exact Kings, 25.39gr
Shooting from a bag rest, sitting
Range was 100 yards measured with a 100' tape reel
Wind was 5-8mph from the south
Air temp was 45F and sunny

Also, my printer will not scale to print the full target without clipping the edge so I printed these out but the 4 MOA circle is 1/4" too small and so the 8 ring shot seen is actually inside the 9 ring. See pix below.

Wow, good shooting! I hope to expand my range up to 100+ yards eventually.

Thanks all, I find 100y to be incredibly difficult in comparison to my PB's, my 10/22 competition will do hole in hole at 100y with a 10mph breeze. The holdovers with diabolo's are KILLIN me!  :o ;)

I find 50 yards to be pushing it for pellets, but work great short of that. I'm always very impressed by anyone hitting something reliably at 100 yards with pellets, much less a 4" circle.

I can pile up pellets at 50y, .177? I have not tried that, I use that for 10m solely. We will see what .22 do at 100y.  :o

I think it took me over a week to make NUAH with my .177 Stormrider. It took at least 25 targets and absolutely dead calm conditions to do it. It took less than half and hour and 2 targets to do it with my .25 Flashpup.

LOL! I took the 'easy road' yesterday with the .25. The .22 comes next week, sadly, 15mph winds are making even hitting paper impossible today. It took me 13 targets to get it but the ground is too soggy for the ATV so I walked it and my dogs are barking!

Best wishes to you. Winds haven't been playing nice here in central NY this weekend. Hopefully this week they will.

That is an achievement, 100 yards with a .177, I'm not even certain I have a .177 capable, but would be fun to try on a calm day

100 yards with diabolos is indeed a challenge. According to my weather app, we're getting 13mph winds today, but had lulls and gusts slower/faster than that. Sent some 16gr Air Arms (.22) down range, but the wind had it's way with them. I was getting between 3" to 12"+ wind drift @100y while plinking. Best wishes when you go out with the .22cal.

I dragged the Chaser out to hit the 50y steel, 7 shots proved to be too frustrating so it's tax time (sigh).  :-\
