Looks like an old post.

Anyone think it is time for a postal shoot?

300 yds?  group size not score?

Someone honest like Wing to judge?

I'm definately up for a postal shoot. I would be happy to shoot or judge. 

I wouldn't be anywhere as good of a judge as Max was, but I am willing to give it a try.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a postal shoot?

300yds doesn't seem far enough to reach a separate postal code, so I'm pretty sure that's not it...

Garou,
A postal shoot is where a bunch of guys decide on rules like distance, shooting position, number of groups, etc. then go out to their shooting range and shoot groups following those rules. 

Then they mail their target or targets to the judge along with a set entry fee. (usually around $5.00) by a decided on date. 

The judge then measures the groups and decides on a winner that wins the money in the pot. 

If Max was still with us, he was a great judge. his commentary while recieving the entry fees and targets was golden. 

I hope this explanines it enough to get the idea.

maybe start with a 22 lr at 100 yards?  bench rest?  Any rifle less than 10#?

everyone seems to have a 22!  and a 100 yard range.

How about this for target, one shot per fly, breaking the line, counts as hit.

shoot the stars, a bit easier.

good idea Bear to start with a .22 LR....100yds OK too. 
What target , # shots, and any other rules for the shoot.
Classes like
scoped
irons open sights
receiver/peep
red dots
or
action types 
or
Position:
hindlegs 
sling or no sling
bench
Some of these may not be able to be done by all of us due to whatever reasons
sitting
prone 
kneeling
Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down to any or all the above......or any other ideas

How about:

Any 22 lr rifle weighing under 10 pounds with scope.
Position: any including bench.
10 shots on one target.
Range 100 yards (indoor or outdoor).
Smallest group measured center-to-center is the winner.
Contest to last one month.
Entrance fee $5 per target (you con enter more than once).
Winner gets half the pot--with the other half going to the BBS Fund.


Just some quick thoughts, suggestions/revisions welcome.

To be a fun thing.  later we could change to center fire and range and rifles.

thoughts.

Sounds like a good start for the rules...........

Great Idea Bear to add 1\2 the pot to the BSB fund.

Now we need to come up with an appropriate target.....how about an NRA small bore 100yd target

link to the NRA small bore target...happens to be a MidwayUSA ad I found, read the reviews too. I think these could be found nearly everywhere at a shooting store or even at your local gun club.

Since we are shooting for 'group size' the target really doesn't matter.

Might want to use one of the Targetz, the site Robert suggested.  just download off the net????

Thinking something simple that would give a good sight picture at 100 yards. 


thoughts?

who would be interested???

no commitment until you shoot and sent in your $5!??????????????????????????

Sounds good to me. I would be interested in shooting or judging. 

I assume if I judge, I wouldn't be allowed to shoot.

This whole thing is "honor system".  so for my 2 cents, judge could shoot also.

need the judge to br someone with a 22 "rig-it" or other gauge.

Here is another target for consideration. It gives you choice of format and works very well out to 400yds, other target has awful large aiming point.
http://www.estephan.net/eds/shooting/targets/targets/sight.pdf

Since it would be for group size, you could pick your own aiming point, with diamond, square, X, or number, for your choice as aiming point, should suit anyone's fancy.

I agree about honor system, with ten shot group, you're going to have to take the person's word, that ten shots were fired and it wasn't just best target, they could come up with in month period. I have no issue, with judge shooting.

Sounds good to me. I'll volunteer to be the judge. I will also be a shooter. 

When do we want this to start?

And, Who is all going to enter?

I like the target RobtMT has on his link...like he said pick your "bullseye" ie: the place to put your group of 10 .22LR rounds on that target.

Bear did I just "hear" you "volunteer" to set a schedule of time and mail in your target date etc.??????  I thing you and the JUDGE....SEE NOTE BELOW ON JUDGE DEAL,,,

Thanks Wingmaster for volunteering to be the JUDGE....

Now you and bear get together and make the thing happen......Pick a time line and set a final target send in date and get Wings' address to all who register via PM so's to not get it out to the world.....his address that is. WE can send our entry fee to Wing (guess we shooters best let it be know who we are so Wing can PM his address to us for the Entry Fee...unless Wing has a better Idea) and he can make a roster of us shooters from that. I'd guess we could all down load a copy of that target so all would have the same one. 
OK...open to any more comments on this issue.....

IBD is IN for the 100yd, any .22LR rifle under 10lbs with scope and any shooting position etc per Bear's original definition for the shoot.

Ok guys, here it goes. I just started shooting a new game. Its very frustrating yet so challenging, i cant let it go. Its called 1000 yard benchrest silhouette varmint shooting. It is held monthly at the Ridgway Rifle Club in Ridgway Pa. Rules are, 17 pound rifle max weight. Targets are, actual size crow at 850 yards actual size groundhog at 900 yards, actual size bobcat at 950 yards, and actual size coyote at 1000 yards. Target MUST fall. 40 shot match with ten targets at each station. 2 1/2 minutes for each 5 targets. 3 minute sight in period before your ten shot string. People are streaming in from everywhere to compete. Nothing but good people attending, and all are helpful if you ask for pointers. Muzzle brakes are welcome, as long as they vent from the side only and not to the rear. All calibers are welcome. There are guys shooting .223, and a lot are shooting the 6.5 Creedmore. Any scope can be used, and the variety of rifles is staggering. I am now in possession of three BR rifles, one in 6mm .284, a .223, and a 6.5 creedmore.i have seen people there from as far west as michigan, and from as far south as south carolina. All filing in for the shoot on the designated sunday. Someone with more talent on the keyboard than I, like Bear, should take the trip to report to all of you what its like.i am quite sure that he could be more lyrical in the description than I. In any event, its a great and growing sport for clubs that have a 1000 yard range.
There are times when a normal man must, spit in his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Not many 1000 yd ranges east of thee big muddy.

Ridgway is a good one.

Think it is a good idea...But could we reduce it to 200 or 300 yards to get more participation?

At 200 yards we could use a 1/5 size crow,  a 1/4% size groundhog/rockchuck.

Maybe just a 5 shot at a 1/5 size coyote at 200 yards.


Aside from the BSB shot.  In February, I'll try to make that Ridgeway shoot.  Close to NRA outdoor  BIG show.
