Targets

Running Deer Bullseye – 100 yard Running Deer Bullseye. Adapted from NRA 50 Yd. Small Bore Rifle Target. Postscript edition.

Elk Bullseye – Originally the Running Deer bullseye was used for the 200 yard (actually 176 yard) Elk, it proved too small an aiming point for the longer yardage. I increased the size of the 100 yard deer bullseye to fit on 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Adopted about 1992.

One inch squares – One inch squares, adapted from Postscript sample program.

Benchrest– One inch squares with Benchrest style rings.

Police L Repair Center  – for the Old Police “L” target used at Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers  Walt Wise Police Pistol Match. Largest ring is 7 ring (15 7/16″ dia.) 8 ring (11 15/16″ dia.) 9 ring (8 1/2″ dia.) and then the black 10 and X as shown. Target sheet is square 18 15/16″, the scoring rings are 1/8″ inch thick. A picture of this target can be seen on page 37 of The Pistol Shooter’s Treasury  edited by Gil Hebard, second edition. The 7-8-9 reference numerals appear 3 times on the face, forming an inverted “Y”. For use at 25 yards for slow, timed and rapid. A rather easy target for bullseye competition, high score at these matches is normally a perfect 1800 score, winner being determined by X count. Course of fire is .22 and Center Fire.

Sight-in – My favorite sight-in target. Originally developed for use with both low power deer hunting scopes and my Leupold M8-8x with the rather large 2/3 minute dot. Lack of any scoring rings makes locating bullet holes easier with spotting scope. Well tuned hunting rifles should group in the white at 100 yds.
