This 200 yard/.22 LR KD is a new course that I have arranged with Appleseed Host Matamoras Rod and Gun Club - (see link below) This is a one day event. The Idea of the KD is to shoot the .22 round from a classroom standard 25 yard zero on a two hundred yard course using standard 1080 FPS 40 grain ammunition. Please use this combination for the course.
There will be a block of instruction on Known Distance using this combination. There will be instruction on characteristics of the .22lr, its capabilities, and its history of use in the military as well as other information about this underestimated round.
You will have no problem shooting a 1 moa group at 200 yards from a prone position using .22lr ammunition. The Course will give the participants the opportunity to stretch their .22 rifles a bit further and adjust to the conditions of the day - this compels a greater understanding of the ballistics and the student own sighting systems.
This is a one day course, so you MUST bring your rifle pre-zeroed at 25 yards to save time for actual firing of the course. Also, buy your ammunition now - I anticipate 300 rounds will cover the day. The basic course of fire is set using the 25 yard zero and 40 Gr 1080 Standard velocity .22 LR to keep things simple for this one day event, although the morning instruction will cover different grains and velocities. You may also want to bring 100 rounds of any velocity/grain combination that you like in the event you complete the course with the standard grain and wish to move on to another round. However, let's all start at 1080FPS/40Gr with the 25 yard zero.
Be ready for about 1 mile or so of walking for the day; you can bring a bicycle if you like. The Range may have a gravel road in place by then (highly likely) and we will be able to drive up and down. You will need a good mat (no rugs). Also, dress for the weather from head to toe.
If you sign up please commit to the date - this should be a fun event, a little different, and it will be good to see a line of riflemen (and riflewomen) shooting those .22lrs at this distance. Here is the link: https://appleseedinfo.org/search-states-location.php?locationid=420&id_event=5117
