Cancelled - 200 yd KD .22lr for prior Applrseed attendees
« on: April 03, 2017, 06:04:08 PM »
Cancelled - Host requested if possible (due to 200 yd range modification/construction/conditions ) Presently,  no one signed up so I have cancelled.  Therefore, the event is cancelled. This host is very supportive of Appleseed for several years and has made gracious accommodation for us in prior matters.   We have another 200 scheduled in July - Please sign up!

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!
