Round 3 shots now posted.

This will be far from a "fun" shoot type of competition.

Your original suggestion was a good one, and I thought I had translated it into a concept.

Nothing is cast in stone yet, so no need to withdraw.

I was hoping to put 6 x faces onto one sheet, + a sighed target.

This will make scoring easier as there will only be 1 bit per target face.

Two sheets will be shot, giving the common 2 x 6 shot rounds, plus 1 slighter per set of 6.

In order to get 6 faces on one sheet I will need to remove an outer ring, or two, but these are rarely hit, so shouldn't cause too many problems.

We could keep all rings, and shoot a total of 4 x sheets in order to get one shot per face. It's really up to members.

I don't purpose to proceed until everybody is happy with the rules, target layout, etc.

So, all comments/ideas are welcome.

Kind regards,

Never having participated in "bell target" contests or knowing anything about the format, could one of you chaps enlighten me. Are all shots to be taken in a standing position ? :?: Does anyone ever shoot these with an open sight pistol ? Or is it deemed to be too difficult.

These are free standing competitions over 6 yards,

The basic set up is the same country wide, but rules can change from district to district regarding number of shots, pellet type, sight type, etc.

A lot shoot open sights only, though non magnifying sights, such sure dot, are allowed in some comps.

Some comps also insist on a standard pellet.

Bell target pistol has been mentioned on many occasions, but I haven't personally had a go.

Shooting against proper bell targets, it is easier with .177, but for this comp it shouldn't matter much, other than to reduce the chance of getting a perfect centre for a maximum score.

I'll try and put all the above chat into a set of rules, which should make it a lot simpler.

Zunmik's original idea was a very good one, and I'll try and stick as closely to this as possible.

Kind regards,

Had a chance to play with the target layout today, and came up with this:-

Image

It's one shot per target face, with 1 sighter.

Shot over 2 target pages, this should give 12 shots plus 2 sighters, and is inline with the original suggestion.

All that is neede is to agree the scoring for the bell (bull).

Kind regards,

Scoring from the bull should be down. I don't see why we need to vary a working formula?
We do need to have the 10 and 10.1 scores though I think.
As I have now two Bell Target rifles I really find myself needing to justify them!

I’m going off to go find myself. If I’m not back by the time I return, keep me here.
