Thread: What will it take at Piney Hill?

    What will it take at Piney Hill?

    What will it take at Piney Hill?

    CYA friends:


    If you haven't figured out by now, I love this new IR-50 10-SHOT...

    And I just heard something...

    Sometime here in January there's going to be a three target, 10-SHOT match at Piney Hill....( I'm sorry, but I didn't catch the date, it'll probably be on the IR-50 web site)

    _________________________


    Anyway, what score will it take to win this first ever 3-card 10-SHOT contest?

    ______________________


    I suppose it may depend on who's competing......

    As I understand things, the current 10-SHOT single target record is 108.

    So, could I expect the three target winner to kick out three cards that break the single card record?

    My answer might surprise some..........YES.

    ________________________


    But again, it all depends on who shows up...


    ______________________


    Oh, and one other thing I'm wondering about?

    Whoever wins this first 10-SHOT, three card match, if one of those three cards breaks the existing single card 10-SHOT record, will it stand as a new record?

    Or if anyone, winner or not, breaks the current single card 10-SHOT record, will it stand?

    Man, I'm as cited as I've been in years about IR-50........

    IR-50 has the opportunity to set the standard for rimfire accuracy advancement...

    And of course, this first 3 card 10-SHOT will establish a new record.

    I can't wait......


    Man I love this new 10-SHOT,

    Your friend, BC

    What score do I think it will take to win this first ever 10-SHOT three card?

    As soon as I get some idea of who will be there, I'll post my prediction...bc

    Jan 21st..........

    Jan 21st..........

    _______________________


    CYA friends:

    I just looked on the IR-50 web site.....

    The 10-SHOT match will be Jan 21st.......

    A lot is going to depend upon the weather......as far as turnout.

    ________________


    This is citing, for me, since this RFBR game represents pure accuracy.

    I've not competed in about 10 years now.....and never will again...

    But if I did, I'd have to be at Piney Hill come the 21st..........weather permitting.

    _____________________


    I'd love to see someone shoot my spearment there......

    This thing is stout......

    ______________________


    I've got a feeling that the folks who feel they've got it, are going to be there the 21st, again weather permitting.

    10-SHOT is like the PSL, it ain't going to be for everyone.

    I've got a feeling, no I know, that only serious RFBR shooters will tackle this game, just like the PSL.

    And if I thought I had it, I'd have to be there.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed that the weather cooperates.

    ___________________


    I've been thinking about what score it's going to take to win the thing.

    The 250 x 17X test target I graded, was an 80......

    So if one kept up this pace, three times 80 means a score of 240.

    Harry Deneen's sporta 249 x 22X card graded a 124.......

    So if one kept up this pace, three times 124 means a score of 372, of course.

    ________________________


    I would be completely surprised if the thing was won with a 240.

    But, depending on who shows up, I would not be real surprised if the thing was won with a 372.....

    Although, kicking out three 124's would be stout......


    _________________


    CYA friends, ain't this citing.......

    Big time RFBR has a score game now, that demands the type of "pure rimfire accuracy" that group shooting demands.

    Man I hope the weather cooperates.

    Bill: Thank you! I was packing the car to make the trip to Piney Hill today for tomorrow's match. You made me re-think and check the date. It is NEXT Sunday, not tomorrow. You saved me a trip and lots of lonely practice had I not read your post. bob

    ps; remember the 10x is simply another way to score the IR50 target. We will shoot it just like we always have I suspect. A 10 score on a bull will be a rare event indeed.

    You're most certainly welcome....

    If me posting the date kept you from a needless trip, I'm glad I posted it....

    One Friday afternoon I was at the range testing a new build....I was alone.

    Then I heard someone pulling in the driveway, so I looked around and saw Paul Truitt and he shooting buddy Pete pulling in.

    Them boys were from Michigan, over 400 miles north of me.

    Anyway, we chewed the fat for a while, then I asked them, I says, "Paul, are you guys on vacation or something, just passing through?"

    Then one of them said they were getting ready to get a motel room, for the match tomorrow.

    Bob, did you ever dread to have to tell someone something?

    I then said, "Guys, our club match is next week-end."

    __________________

    Them two guys looked at one another, just shook their heads, and headed back to Michigan...

    I bet that was an interesting ride back to Michigan. I'd loved to have been a little mouse in the back seat listening.

    True story.....so yes, things like that do happen.

    Bob, as you can probably tell, I love this 10-SHOT thing...

    If the folks at IR-50 play this thing right, it will be huge.......for the serious RFBR folks.

    I've re-scored a bunch of targets trying to get a "feel" for this thing.

    I'm as cited as I've been in a long time.

    Your friend, BC

    PS:

    Last night I re-graded this 19X PSL card that Chuck "Raging Inferno" Morrell kicked out a couple years ago.

    It 10-SHOT grades at a minimum of 134....

    I believe bull #17 will grade a 10-SHOT 6.....which would make it a 136.....but that's speculation....

    The 134 is stout enough.....BC
