Every person has the power to make others happy. Some do it simply by entering a room -- others by leaving the room. Some individuals leave trails of gloom; others, trails of joy. Some leave trails of hate and bitterness; others, trails of love and harmony. Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism; others trails of faith and optimism. Some leave trails of criticism and resignation; others trails of gratitude and hope. What kind of trails do you leave?

"You will have no problem shooting a 1 moa group at 200 yards from a prone position using .22lr ammunition."...

Seriously ::) ..... ?

I'm interested in your shoot.  Would be nice to try .22 at longer distances and see what I can eek out of that tiny cartridge.  But.....  April 22nd isn't a good weekend for me.  It seems there are a ton of other Appleseed events planned on that same weekend within 200 miles.  Saratoga, NY.  Colebrook, CT.  Annapolis, MD. Lexington Park, MD.  I'm planning on attending one of the other ones to work on progressing as an IIT.

I would definitely come if you had it on a different weekend.  Figured I'd let you know.   @)

I have trouble shooting 1 MOA with an AR and handloads, so…I guess I suck.  ;D

This sounds like an interesting shoot, though, and I'd like to see the COF. We only have access to 100 and 200 yard ranges locally, and I've wondered about the feasibility of a short-range KD with .22LR. Changing elevation on Tech Sights is kind of a pain, though (compared to an A2 or scope with target turrets) and I wonder if all variants have enough clicks to do the job?

I'm definitely interested in the idea and challenge of a .22LR 200 yd KD, but I'm instructing at the AS in Saratoga that April 22-23 weekend.  I'll be signing up for the July 16 event.

I love this idea! I was thinking I'd like to do something like this at one of our shoots here in Montana. I can't wait to see the results.  Wondering if one would have to score Rifleman to attend? Shooting say, 100,150,200?
What size would the silhouette be at 200? I would be happy to buy some targets so I can try this.
Good luck on your shoot!

I put alot of work into it and probably have a round count of near 1,000 or 5,000 on the DOPE on different rifles, scopes, ammo grains and FPS. Unfortunately, for reasons only Our Lord  knows - no one signed.
I have another scheduled July 16 2017 and so far there are a few people that signed. :F
The idea is "what's after rifleman?"  :---
Thanks for your support.

I revised the course data again and will

 i figure that  rifleman only should attend given the additional "over and above" information in the course. Probably high scoring repeat AS'r would do just as well.  We are using a full sized center on this course; the drops are severe, and the wind is usually an issue, so the extra deflection area on the center serves well.  On scoring it is hits only, and only in the black.  All V ring hits get ice cream and a free puppy.
