LeverAction Ongoing Postal Match

Post by Bryan Austin »

Howdy fellas. If you are interested in this type of thing, check it out here:
This has been started over on the castboolets forum but is open to everyone. There are quite a few categories that should satisfy each shooter.
Example:

The categories are split based on bullet trajectory out to 300 yards, even if your scope is zeroed in at 50 yards.

All trajectory categories are based on Winchester Super-X Deer Hunting Ammo with JSP type and heaviest bullet when available....you can use your handloads...this is just a guideline for your general bullet weight...lets be flexible at first

Here is an example:

30-30 Winchester Model 94. Scope will be zeroed in a 50 yards, your category is:

30-30/scope/50/30"-40".

30-30 = Cartridge
scope = scope used
50 = 50 yard zero (adjusting elevation for a different range puts you in a different category)
30"-40" = bullet trajectory out to 300 yards with scope dialed in at 50 yards.

30-30/peep-receiver/21"-30"

30-30 = Cartridge
Peep-Receiver = Peep sight mounted to receiver
21"-30" = Trajectory from 0-300 yards is in the range of +.90" from 0-50 yards and -27" from 51-300 yards


This can put several people with the same cartridge in several different categories based on the trajectory in that category. based on several factors.

I'm confused. What's the target and how many shots are we shootin' at it?

Yep... what size target, how far and allowed shooting positions? The rest will sort itself out.

I zero my pistols for 50 yards.

Are you planning on running the match for the Leverguns group or would we have to be member and participate on the other forum.

I'm interested and I miss our old postal match here.

Keep it simple. I have that on the google docs.
Bench rest, just try to keep simply as it relates to hunting methods

Target of your choice...just try to be as accurate as you can with the group measurements. I use Balistic X on my phone and its great. Snap a "square" photo of your target. Crop it, open it in the all and follow the instructions. Or you can send photo to me if'en ya wanna!
