    Let's play some Battleship!

    It appears the printouts directly from Stag are hard to see due to the colors. Let’s use the attached black and white versions instead. Still two different styles to make some targets easier than others, depending on your preference, which can affect strategy.

    Do not use these old links below:

    Standard CFF Monthly Rimfire Benchrest Challenge Rules
    - Target Size: Standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper - Choose the "Print to fit" option when printing.
    - Target distance: 50 yards
    - Any shooting position you'd like
    - Front rests, bipods, front/rear shooting bags, bunny ears, ... etc. are all ok.
    - No full length rifle mechanical rail/sled type rests allowed
    - Iron sights or optics of your choice are all allowed
    - All done on the honor system. Shoot it, score it, post it.
    - Winner chooses the target and challenge for the next month.
    - Post copy of your target, setup, where shot, and score


    Scoring:
    - There are 8 ships with a total of 22 targets (orange and green dots on the ships). Let's limit the number of shots to 30 shots per page. That allows you an extra shot per ship (on average).
    - You earn points by destroying ships, so you must hit all targets on a ship to destroy it.
    - Breaking the edge of the target circle counts as a hit.
    - Short Ship (hit both 2 targets) = 5 Points
    - Medium Ship (hit all 3 targets) = 10 Points
    - Large Ship (hit all 4 targets) = 15 Points
    - Tie breaker 1 - Total number of targets hit
    - Tie breaker 2 - Lowest number of shots taken (expecting to be all 30, but just in case)
    - Tie Breaker 2 - Lowest price of ammo used. We can use Outdoor Limited. They are a NC dealer with a selection of almost anything (even if not in stock).


    Let the games begin and good luck ladies and gentlemen!

    Hopefully the point system will get you thinking about risk/reward!

    And I'll leave the Vudoo out of the competition this month and see if I can come close to you all with the CZ.

    I don't think I can hit the targets from over 7000 miles away. :eek::mad::D

    Just for clarification...
    Does breaking the edge of a dot count as a hit or does it need to be within the dot?

    Definitely just breaking the edge of the target circle counts as a hit.

    Thanks for asking. I forgot to say that originally, so I have updated the instructions.

    The dots are larger than last month, so hopefully we can get some more hits. Although I am a little worried about the green ones. They might be really hard to see. May affect strategies as well.

    Printed one out in gray scale and another in color. Hopefully will make it out next week. All this rain has the range shut down until at least Tuesday.

    Yeah the rain is brutal lately. I hope to try it out at least once this weekend too. Gray scale might be a good idea.

    I printed gray scale. Is not easy to see. I was at the range today for a while but it was either pouring or gusty or both so I didn’t try it yet. Hopefully this weekend.

    My wife said she could try to make a better version in Photoshop. What do you guys think would be best:
    Black ships with white or bright circles
    White ships with black targets

    White ships meaning black outlines?

    Best is probably everything with heavy-ish black outlines on white paper. Black spots or ships will make black reticles unusable on the target or wind holding slightly off.

    Agreed, but thought I would ask. That is why I thought about white holes on black ships as an option, but I didn’t think about holding off. I will see if she can make it simple with thick lines like last month but with slightly larger targets. I think these are 3/8” vs 1/4” last month.

    I updated the original thread with the updated target. Still two different styles to make some targets easier than others, depending on your preference, which can affect strategy.
