Below are the American decimal TARGETS used in the Dorchester Rifle and Pistol Club's 50 yard Summer League

 

In the HARC Historic Miniature Rifle Winter Standing League, the "Tin Hat" target is used at 25 yards in all three classes.

TIN HAT -used for Summer 50 yard League - Service and Classic classes

and all Winter Standing League classes from October 2001

The diameter of the black on both American targets shown below is 3.875 inches for use at 25 yards offhand (standing) and 50 yards prone.

The inside diameter of the bull (not the X-ring or "Carton") is 0.9 inches.

(see comparative scaling notes below for 20 yards)


The above "Tin Hat" target is used for all three Winter League Standing classes.

These are reprinted by the Dorchester Rifle & Pistol Club for their 50 yard Summer League

They have one more scoring ring than the full round black target previous;y used ( shown below for DRPC Summer League use) and will permit better scores)

They are available as usual from: the Dorchester Rifle & Pistol Club
email: dhannam@tesco.net

N.B. If you wish to shoot on these at 15 or 20 yards, then acquire a target and photocopy reduce it onto suitable paper.
The diameter of the BLACK should be reduced from 3.875" (3 7/8") on the original target
to 3.056" (3 1/20") for use at 20 yards – or to 2.237" (2 ¼") for use at 15 yards

In all other respects, the standing competition is the same as the prone; i.e., Shooting dates, match system, scoring, etc.

We welcome any enquiries relating to the Standing 15 to 25 yard league,
e.g. re: entries, equipment or suitable rifles. Please email: HARC-MRL@rifleman.org.uk

 

ROUND BULL - used for 50 yard Summer League Veteran class

The formula for scaling targets is

new size = distance ratio (radius + 0.11) - 0.11

where r = original radius to be reduced or increased, and 0.11 is half the diameter of a .22 bullet.

For example, to reduce the a diameter from 25 yards to 20 yards range ~ diameter "x", where the original diameter at 25 yards is 3.875 inches, making its radius half that at 1.9375 inches.

Divide 20 by 25 = 4/5

Therefore "x" = 2 x new radius = 2 x 4/5 (1.9375 + 0.11) -0.11 = 3.056 inches
