Topic: Range Scores 56K WARNING


Went shooting this past weekend with my corps and got the best score of all the cadets in my unit. Only 2 officers did better than me, a 76 and an 88. I had a grouping too but I lost it, here's a scan of my score sheet. Range was 10 meters with 495 FPS Daisy 865(I think) air rifles.
The second one was shooting while kneeling. I now realise how shitty a shot I am.





mod edit: I saved it, fixed it on my computer and am hosting the smaller image on my own site.~ Crazy

Cadets are technically only allowed to shoot in the prone position, but because I'm special I got to go in early the second day and try shooting kneeling. The accuracy sheet was prone, my first shot of the day, oddly enough it was also my best shot. I guess I got tired trying to keep all the junior cadets in line. The kneeling grouping of 5 shots was done immediately after my prone grouping of 10 shots. I also did another 10 shots to sight the rifles in but I didn't keep that sheet. I have my other score sheet from later that day, I only got 43 on that one.

nope, I've shot 3 or 4 times before with air cadets and once with a .22 powder rifle...I think it was a remington, I'm not sure. Anyway, definitely not my first time shooting

That's not a great target, but it's not a bad one either. If the grouping was in a certain area (ie: above, below, etc..), I could tell you that your breathing isn't right, you're pulling the trigger too fast, or something along those lines. Either that, or it just wasn't a good day.

I agree. Most people on my range team...or back in the day when I was on the range team averaged in the low 90's.
