Good Morning Everyone,
The 10+10 shooting contest is officially open!
10 ring 50 meter paper-2 targets See links at the bottom for an example.
[Note: if you print off one of the enclosed—be sure the black diameter =112.5 mm..not the normal metal opening of 115.0 mm. These are break-line targets while the metal is designed to fall with 1/2 a bullet in the black from a split round on the rim.]
2 magazines prone on one and 2 standing on the other. 5 shots each time in position [not one shot drills] Step off the shooting mat between magazines.
After zeroing only the athlete can scope the target between magazines and make their own corrections. Coaches can not give corrections after zeroing.
You can not scope each shot—only between magazines
If the shot breaks the line it counts up
All rings count—even those outside biathlon hits
You can do this on any 50 meter range, but specify if it is indoors.
You can send your results to me either as a score from your coach or take a pic of the two targets and send me that and I will score. Once you send in the first one—only send me more if you score a new PR for the Month!! I would like the score sent in to be in the format of P+S=T. That way we can see how you are progressing in each position.
I will have a spread sheet set up and enter your score. At the end of June we will again look at your best 10+10 shot target for the month of June. We will add the two best scores [May + June] together and the winner from MN or WI will get a brick of ammo compliments of MN Biathlon! We have already had requests from WI to have their shooters entered in the contest, so MN, get dialed in!!
If this goes well, we will likely have another contest in July and August with a test on paper involving range procedure.
Enjoy the Journey!
Bill Meyer, Coach
