.177 CALIBER CHALLENGE - REVISED

Unread postAuthor: jrrdw » Fri Jun 13, 2014 7:42 am

For all the builders / shooters in and around the .177 caliber range. This is for bragging rights only! Use your home built shooter, be 40 meters (or so) from your paper target with a 1" bullseye, film / video your shots, groups of three consecutive shots, tightest group gets bragging rights of being Spudfiles best shot in the .177 caliber range.

Thats it, plain and simple. Ends when I say so, so get to it as quickly as you can.

Heres a good way to film it:
Get someone to do the camera work for you that way in the begining of the video the shooting range can be seen then the camera can be carried to a posistion behind the shooter to film the shots, then carried to the target to show the shot grouping. That's about the easiest, safest and most open way of doing it that I can think of. Practice getting it done all in one video clip, then post the best clip.

Have fun and shoot safely! :bigsmurf:

Revision: Changing this to both a 40 meter and 20 meter shooting challenge. If you can get only 20ish meters distance that will be fine, same with the 40ish meter distance. The can be a best shot for both. Dam...imagine laying claim to both distances :shock: ! Something to shoot for...

Doesn't matter if you made all the parts yourself or bought them 'off the shelf' as long as you built a shooting anything with a bore size of / in between .100 - .200 you're good to use it in THIS particular challenge. Keeping it simple, the main requirment is having fun. :P :wink: :D

Nice shooting...How about taking the challenge?

Is the 40 meters asking a bit to much? It seems you guys are going to be able to work better with the 20ish meter mark. I'll revise this so as to keep it a fun challenge instead of busting ass to get the 40 meter mark. :D
