  • My 25 & 50 yd rimfire test target

    this is what I use when I shoot my rimfires for sighting in and groups. 1" square on white printer paper. 1 square per sheet. I hand drew these to illustrate my point. I don't have any more printed but you get the gist. Then I try to cut the top line in half as though it were a string. You will notice your heartbeat right away as well as your breathing. The small vertical line I illustrated but no longer use as it was not any help. The first shot is easy, after that you have to focus on the line not the other hole(s). Opinions?

    Well, that certainly works. I use the Champion targets covered with 1 inch squares. 100 sheets for less than $15. Lots of places to punch holes before having to change sheets.

      the square isn't relevant to me. Its main purpose is to allow a quick comparison with a group fired on a different target. It's the line that gives the precision. The square allows too much wiggle room at closer ranges when trying to go below 1/4". I'm also distracted by their holes in the target so I only use 1 square per sheet. You can easily print a checkerboard of squares by using the row&column feature on document.

        I hear ya. I like the Champion targets mainly for use with scopes. For open sights I use 1 inch dots on plain white paper.

          I envy anyone who can still use open sights. Even on a pistol I can hardly see anything well enough to aim. Sucks to get old.

            You've got that right, it sucks getting old. Just turned 60 a couple of weeks ago and can't clearly see distant objects without glasses or magnification.
