September Levergun Postal Match

#1 Post by Griff » Sat Sep 02, 2017 8:41 am

This thread is for posting of your pictured targets ONLY! If you want to brag on or cut someone's submission... do it in another topic... (Maybe here: Competition Shoot.

You can submit either a picture or a scanned image. Must include a description or photo of your equipment & load in your submission post. See rule #7... if we don't know who you are, you can't win... September 1 - 30.

BASIC Rules: - let's keep it simple -

1. Repeating Lever-action rifle, center-fire pistol caliber ONLY (.32 to .45 cal).
(a) Repeating Lever-action Rifle, center-fire Rimmed "RIFLE" cartridge. (.25 - .45 cal. with FN bullets appropriate to tube magazines. Need not be tube magazine rifle).
2. Shot in the free standing position. (unsupported)
3. Iron sights or tang sights ONLY - no fancy stuff - scopes etc.
4. B6 target - (link to download and print a copy below).
5. 10 Shots only
6. 50 yards (ish)
7. Image of target and with name and date written on target posted for consideration, Include description of rifle & load.
8. A maximum of 4 targets submitted for each Calendar month. (For both firearms... if submitting under pistol and rifle cartridge categories - NOT 4 each - let's not over-work the judges).
9. Your highest score counts.
10. Winner posted at the beginning of the next Calendar month.
11. Open to all members of the forum as of September 1st, 2017.

Approved target:

http://www.silvercitygunclub.com/PDF/b6.pdf

Scoring: Count 10,9,8 and 7 if you hit the paper. A full cut of a line counts to the next highest value. Where there is a tie the most Xs hit in the 10 ring will be the tie- breaker!

Good luck and get out there and get shooting!!! This will be my last month playing "admin" for the match. Don't make us do a military "volunteer", step on up and be recognized!

Here are two inshot today. My printer's ink was running low so after the first one it went into an ink save mode and the second one came out orange.

I was losing light fast and I can say that the orange one was much easier to see (at least at that time of day).
I hit the target all ten times.

The black one I was having trouble seeing my shots so adjusting was more difficult and one I pulled and didn't even hit paper.

Shot with 1892 Clone in .45 Colt. 250g RNFP with 5.2g or Trail Boss. Shot at roughly 6:30-6:45 pm.

Friend Butch and I met up for some tin can blasting today and I got out the competition targets for us. Butch is a levergunner but not a Leverguns.com guy (won't touch a computer). But I thought I'd show his targets anyway since there is a noticeable deficit in the September targets population. We were using my rifles which I loaded while Butch picked up brass. So did I give him all ten rounds in the magazine? I'm not tellin' :D
Here is Butch with Marlin 336, 30/30; I make it a 66, 1X

And here is Butch's target with the Rossi .357; I score it a 76
SeptButchRossi9400.jpg
My Marlin 30/30 target; looks like an 84 -- I don't know why I was shooting so high.

And then my Rossi .357 target, a 94, 2X

Very good shootin' Earl. Your scoring is spot on. And I appreciate the effort to post up a pair of targets. I'd do the same, but... I got home on Thursday, and after chores I left out for a cowboy shooting match on Tuesday, and didn't bring my printer. Won't get home till the 1st... then it's all clean up of a "BUNCH" of guns. Started shooting today, 8 stages in total, 4 in Plainsman, 4 in Wild Bunch, plus 3 trips thru the long range competition! Tomorrow will be an easy day, only 4 stages! But lots of time for socializin! And a few barley pops!

Another one to add---seems like I can't get rid of at least one wide flier. Thanks Griff.

This was pretty easy... Congrats Rube Burrows... mighty fine shootin'! I've posted up the October match, it'll take a few days to get it pinned up at the top like previous months, but feel free to print off a few targets and get out shootin' again.

Like the previous matches, this one is to be shot standing, off hand at 50 yards (or there-bouts)! I fully expect to see AJMD429 get his Bighorn Armory levergun out there and attempt a 1-shot cut of the rope!
