Hunting deer,pheasant, and ducks now--But you are right-I have a CZ in 223, and a sako 22-250.1st chance will give it a try.Nov 1st,the yote fur should be good.

Guy should just be happy that he can make his bullets touch each other on paper .
Placing one shot on a coin i think any gun can do it . Just may take more than one shot.

Gave it a whirl this morning at 100M. .. decided to be a bonifde member ... it should be repeatable...so made up 9 dots, the centers of which are just a bit under toonie/center diameter. So, just cutting into the color makes it a qualifier. In spite of getting fooled by the wind (or maybe helped by the wind), looks like 5/9 could get me in the club

I took your very good advice--13 shots at 12 twoonie circles10 hits 3 misses--2 centre out.Sako 22.250 leupold 3. This my favourite yote gun.The 40 gr v-max with varget--4000fps.

I fired 13 shots only two centre outs---looks like your in and number 1---Now lets see what a CZ in 223 can do--You got the bar set good and high.

The 260 rem shooter took out 5 centres with 9 shots -- one shot at each twoonie--no shots were missed. Now thats going to be a tough act to follow----

Make it interesting. 338 bullet diameters and larger. Anyone can shoot the 22's.

3 inside an inch with a 375. That's shooting.

Starting to firm up some ideas,for the club.Your input welcome.Go with your 9 twoonie target---5 points for twoonie outside hit--15 points for centre hit--Hunting rifles only--any caliber--Range 100m.No doubt there will be a shoot off.To qualify you have to take a centre out.Bring that target.Now of course hunting season,The final late Dec early Jan.To provide some incentives,I will generate a $200.00 gift certificate--Montanas-Red Lobster-Swiss chalet-etc.If we had a minimum of 10 people,and an entry fee of $30.00-winner take all.I am sure this will grow--We invite sports magazines for pictures.Round up a couple of impartial scoreing judges.To be continued--Back to deer hunting.
