    No I haven’t tried the rifle target, even the 4” one in black looks small. The 7” handgun target looks doable at 100 yds tho. Will try it when I get the cast 55gr pills up to speed, tho i am sure the J bullets could do well at 3250 and good well tuned Thompson single shot with scope.

    I'm subscribing to this thread but I can't shoot until it cools off a little down here in central Texas. I'm almost out of rifle boolits and it's too hot to cast right now.

    I generally cast all of my boolits for the year during January - April but wasn't able to this year. I think that this will be fun as long as we keep it simple and informal. Semper Fi, Treetop

    I want to try open sights. I've been doing scoped for a long time but now the iron sight bug has bitten me. I wasn't too bad with open sights once upon a time.

    Trouble is, I won't know if me, my load or my gun that is doing poorly. If I do good then naturally I will take all the credit.

    I once shot a group at 110 yds with the old Lee Medford style sights on a rifle of that vintage that made me proud. If memory serves it was something like 1.5 to 2 MOA (and it was more than one shot!) with a crude rest and a crude target. So I have some incentive to try to get to that again - and show y'all. It might take a while though.

    On the jacketed thingies - I see them as a benchmark. If I can get 1 MOA with jacketed's then that's what I want to get with cast or paper patched - or better, depending on the gun. I do have one or two guns that won't short worth a **** with jacketed's.

    But in the meanwhile I'd really like to see your all's target results. Including bug hole jacketed groups!

    Why re-invent the wheel for targets? Use standard nra targets. Just pick the one that makes sense. Maybe a single bull Smallbore target for 50 and 100 yards.

    Cheap too.
