By the way, I learned to shoot target aperture sights at a jr. gun club in the late 1950s (yes, I'm qualified for Medicare) and I hadn't seen a set like that until two years ago, so I was really...

I thought the same about shooting at 100 yards with old eyes that can't handle open sights at all, but even simple target aperture sights are nothing short of miraculous. I can see the target clearly...

Sounds good. That would save me a lot of time after changing scopes. Even my cheap target scopes have 1/8 MOA click adjustments, so that's a lot of clicking to move up from 25 to 100 yards. I've...

Thanks--I'll look at the ballistics info, which I have tended to ignore as being too complicated for my small shooting brain to understand.

Glad to be of help. Others undoubtedly know more about all this than I do, but I'm happy to share what I have learned. I also find it reassuring to know you don't need to try to break in at the top...

bman940:

Yes to .22lr and bolt action. The Savage MkII series with Accutriggers are great starters and great guns. I'm looking at a wholesale cataloge that lists the most basic model at $200...

Joshfireart:

Well, we shoot only for score, which is less exacting and less boring (or so I think) than shooting for groups. We have a great time socially talking about guns, ammo, and other great...

Sounds good. We have teenage shooters at all our matches, and they seem to enjoy it a lot. We even had one 9 year old with his father in close supervision.

By the way, we have found that even...

Alternative Benchrest Levels

Tango:

I assume from your statement that ANY rimfire is allowed that I can shoot my .22 WMR, even though you don't specifically list that round.

Also, any web site to get a better version of...

Sounds like fun. I'd like to try it with my Marlin 980S with a BSA 3x-9x scope. It's all stock, and I'll dial the scope down to 6X.
