    This target was shot at 200 yards with iron sights to take the BLACK POWDER CARTRIDGE RIFLE CHAMPIONSHIPS at NRA Whittington Center at Raton, New Mexico last year. It was a .32-40, in a 44-1/2 Stevens rifle.

    Anybody got one that will beat this?

    Every one of those are touching the white aren't they? Freaking nice. I'm a good marksman, 4th award expert with an M16, and I don't think I could even come close to that.

    I could do it with a scope, but even then it would be a real challenge.

    That's amazing! I definitely wouldn't be able to do it at 200 yards with iron sights. My eyes suck. :(

    Heck, most people couldn't do that at 25 yards, much less 200...............

    My eyes sucks too. My sight range at best is 20 - 25 yards maximum.

    Lightweight!
    If you want a real challenge, try shooting off a roller-coaster, across the amusement park, at targets mounted on bumper cars, and without hitting anybody either!


    :rolleyes:

    (WoW! How long have you been shooting?)

    Hmm, well, you arent going to be looking thru a regular $10 set of Track of the wolf sights, those rifles have tang mounted soule sights on the order of this sight. http://www.montanavintagearms.com/101_midrange.html, and up front is one similar to this one. http://www.montanavintagearms.com/120_stevens_spirit.html. So, you see, those fellers are squintin thru a bare minimum of $900 worth of target sights. That cup sight on the back actually functions like a telescopic sight. It is amazing when you look thru that, you can put the crosshairs right on the white dot. Y'all need to go to Whittington Center and watch one of the matches. There will be shooters from all over the world.

    My son can hold a better group

    Of course that's at only 50 yards and he had a scope on a 22.



    Great job by you for sure. That's awesome

    I don't have any problems seeing the target at 200 yards, I just can't see the sights on the gun! :eek: :D

    That is why they use those peep sights, when you squint thru that pin hole, it all clears up.

    Funny you bring this up. I have a Monarch sf on my 308 SASS and when I aim at the cross hairs (200 yd zero) I find it more difficult to hold a tight grouping. However, when doing a hold-over with one of the BDC circles, which I find easier to "cocentric sight" over the target, my groupings are better. I suspect the front spirit iron sight with the bubble functions in much the same way.
