Title: Where Could I Find Information About KD Events And Schedule In New England
Post by: MonkMedic on April 18, 2021, 06:42:33 PM
Hello from the great state of Maine.
I’m looking for more information on the structure of the long distance, or KD (known distance) events that Appleseed hosts.

In particular I am looking to see if there are any scheduled events in New England, or if not in New England, in an area or region close to us?

Also interested in how the events are structured, do they involve standing, sitting, and faring from her prone position?

Sure would appreciate any information that you might have to share.

Thanks!

The course of fire for a KD is the same as a regular Appleseed event. Stage one-Standing 100 yards, stage two-transition to sitting/kneeling 200 yards, Stage three-transition to prone 300 yards and stage four-slow prone 400 yards. The only difference is the distance of course. You will take sighting shots to determine either your come ups or sight adjustments for each distance before running the AQT's.

There is also Rimfire KD events. Rimfire KD events are shot on either a 100 or a 200 yard range using 22LR only. The course of fire is the same.

Not sure about events in your area. Will have to look at the shoot schedule. Here in Ohio we have two ranges that full distance Known Distance shoots are held at every year.

Known Distance Events

A “Known-Distance Appleseed” is a weekend-long program that teaches the secrets of shooting out to 400 yards, including target detection and ranging; measuring and compensating for wind; scopes and reticles; MOAs and mils, boxing your sights, battle-sight zero and come-ups, and much more.

Since this material requires previous exposure to the skills taught at an Appleseed, only students who have been to at least one Appleseed can attend a “KD Appleseed.” Experienced shooters will find that shooting successfully at “Rifleman distances” is a major confidence builder and an opportunity not to be missed!

Scoring may be different.  Additionally,  all the ones I have attended had only one target per stage.  No bipods.  However, bipods may be allowed at some Unknown Distance events (Typically these only occur in the south, west, or southwest).

Excellent, thank you gents for the information, that is most helpful.

Are the same targets used at the KD as used in the 25 meter events?

I did find a shoot down in PA, so looking into that now, greatly appreciate the info.

Happy April 19th, known as Patriot’s Day here in New England to you.

Very similar. The same scaled silhouette, but scaled for either 100, 200 or 400 yards depending on the event and there is no shifting between targets. However, you have to compensate for wind, gravity, etc. more than a 25m event.

Rosswell,
Super, appreciate that knowledge!

I have dope on my rifle out to 1,000 yards, so understand what you mean by compensate.
I needed to know the format the of the shoot, and you did an excellent job answering that.

I did check on Fred's site for KD targets, we have plenty of the 25meter targets, which we use at our local range.
Six of my business team members are Appleseed riflemen, and have attended the clinic and earned the patch.
Where would I locate the larger KD targets for practice and training?

Thank you sir!

Outstanding sir, thank you.

Ordered up the targets, and a couple of the shirts on close out.

Looks like there is a 22 KD in Virginia in August, and a KD in Ohio in October.

Thank you Rev.357, a bit of a drive from Maine, but will look into it.
