Orwell Gun Club - Dec 29, 2018 - 22LR - KD
« on: November 10, 2018, 11:12:17 AM »
Yes, a new event to be held at Orwell Gun Club on December 29, 2018. This will be a one day event and we will have the first 100 yard KD using the 22LR only in Ohio. This event is for those persons who have previously scored riflemen/women and earned their patch.

Here in Ohio we are going to offer a few 22LR known distance events next year and this one will be the first.  We are still gathering information and if anyone out there that has previously either run or attended a 100 yard KD for the 22LR that has any information it would be appreciated.

Thank you and see you all on the line.

I would like to hold a 100yd KD event in Wilmington, OH in 2019 as well. We could modify the COF to 200yds at this range also (Centerfire?)

I will keep an eye on this thread for further info and schedule one soon!

Longrifleman. We certainly can make one of the Wilmington shoots a 22KD. Let's get the dates set for 2019 and pick one to be the 22KD.

 Crazyduckhunter, unfortunately i already have a family commitment for that weekend, but i will sure try to make one of your future dates this summer. Stretching out 22lr would be very interesting.

Sounds good then TomMPR. Next years schedule for Orwell will be posted in the next few weeks or so. This Sunday at the monthly meeting I will be confirming our preferred dates with the club board. Next year at least one will be a KD most likely in September.

CDH,
In my experience, a 22LR high velocity round zeroed at 25M will drop about 4" at 100 yards (18MOA or 36" at 200). I like the 25M 100 yard reduced sils that (at least used to) come in the shoot boxes. Easily reproduced on 8.5" x 11" paper copier if u need more.

PHenry,

Thanks for your thoughts. We are trying to figure out our 22lr KDs. The Dec Orwell event will be our "trial run" for next year. Thanks for chiming in.

Posting the 1/4D targets at 25, 50, 75 and 100 yds, or shoot everything at 100?
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.    Plato

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

Here is something I put together earlier this year trying to model after a BSZ KD.  Designed to be shot at 25, 50, 75 and 100.  Besides environental variables ammo can be a big variable too.  Ballistic charts for various ammo at the end.  Hope there is a good idea or two in here for someone.

I wish I could come to this one but I have to work. :(

I am sure I will get to one this year even if it is to work one in Wilmington.

Blind dog - thanks for the info we will be using this for reference I am sure.

wolfhound & BD in VA has provided a square targets file that I am able to print. These square targets are sized per the 4moa(standard) and to be used at the 50, 75 & 100 yard distances. BD is also going to work up a squares target for the 150 & 200 yard distances. A big thanks to you both. They will also post these on the forum for everyone to access.

EZE3 - I believe that the easiest way to do this is to post the target line and move the firing line for the different stages. Same as we do at the New Philly KD's. I have some large tarps for each distance and we will use those. Hopefully the ground will be frozen.

Can't wait! My son and I are excited for this event. Zeroing our .22s and knocking off some rust. We'll be ready whatever the weather ;)

Notice to all instructors and shooters that are attending this event. We will be having a potluck dinner after the event. I will be bringing deer chili and cwcdl79 will be bringing his cabbage rolls to share. Want to make all aware that everyone is welcome to share in food and fellowship after this event and please if you are able to, please bring something else to share with the group.

Dinner sounds like fun but I'm afraid my son and I will not be able to hang around. My wife is world's biggest Notre Dame fan and we're already in the dog house since we'll miss the start of the bowl game that afternoon. If we're lucky we'll catch some of the 2nd half with her after our two hour drive home.

I registered for the KD before the bowl games were set so I'm not in too much hot water!

Can't wait to lob some lead,

Hi All,

I will be the Shootboss for this event.  Please PM me or CrazyDuckHunter with any questions.

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

This is fantastic stuff!  I'd love to see a Rimfire KD event at Wilmington, either 25, 50, 75, 100 or 50, 100, 150, 200.
