From sighting in my Iron Sites this weekend on one of my AR's.

Cal: .223 Distance: 100 yards.



Group of 4 at top is where I had it set after I had went and pasted the shoot n'c up. I than adjusted my elevation down, and it seemed to pull it to the right just a little. Last shot by itself was after I pulled it over to the left a click. At that point I realized I had shot my last round out of the box of Ammo, and I didn't feel like grabbing another box out of my case just to shoot a couple more rounds (3 minute warning was already called).

Kolat, you still have the pics of the shotgun shells at 50 yards that we were punching the primers with the 17?

G20, iron sights, SWC reloads, 25 yards, 10gr blue dot powder, CCI large pistol primer.
right target was plinking 10 rounds, left target was trying to get a good group, pulled the 4th shot and flustered me for the 5th and I had a decent group going too :-(

wish I could have been there for this.... .22 removes the stickers, 9mm dents it, and my .30-06 puts holes in it.

What indoor range are you at that's 50 yards? Sure you don't mean 50 feet? That's a bit more than 20 rounds too. If you can shoot like that rapid fire at 50 yards you're either a gifted shooter or...

20 rounds. 10/clip. I'm referring to the splatter target over the paper target. This was at the far end wall. I was told 5 ft away from the back wall was 50 yards. It was aparticularly good set that day. I'm not a slouch when it comes to shooting. But I do have my bad days.

Bullseye in Tacoma.

I haven't been to Bullseye, but their website says all lanes are 50 feet (16 yards). So good shooting, but not "OMG why are you not a paid pro shooter!!" good.

However, your range estimation leaves a bit to be desired.

Just going by what the Rangemaster told me, that's all.

Makes sense now. To be clear,
  1. I was incredulous about 50 yard rapid fire with that grouping
  2. I was envious that there was an indoor 50 yard range
Nice shooting.

Nice job! Good to know my .223's will pierce copper pennies. What about quarters? ;P That's pretty damn accurate from 100 yards!

Yup we've done quarters too, they're just bigger and easier to hit so we stick to nickels and pennies.

You might be surprised what a .223 will go through. We've shot aluminum plates and old (empty) propane tanks that .45 pistol rounds bounce off that a .223 punches neat little holes that look like a drill did it.

My rifle is rated from the factory at 3/4 MOA at 100 yards, and if I do my part, it will shoot that well.

My carbine is not that accurate. I haven't really shot groups at 100 yards with it, as it used to have an Eotech on it, not the easiest thing to precise at 100 yards with. But I just put a 1-4X scope on it, so now I can see what it'll do. I'm guessing 1.5-2 MOA.

Minute Of Angle... it's a geometry thing (aka minute of arc) but basically 1 MOA = 1" at 100 yards. So my rifle is rated at 3/4 MOA or able to shoot 3/4" groups at 100 yards. A gun that shoots 1" groups at 100 yards would shoot 2" groups at 200 yards and so on.

Also, you'll hear of scopes that have '1/4 MOA clicks', meaning 1/4" at 100 yards, or 4 clicks for an inch, also at 100 yards.

Some 12G #8 Target plus a few random .45 acp for enhanced drainage. The containers fly better with 12G #00 Buck Shot, but that gets a little expensive to do for any length of time.

For fun take 2 containers (I have a hard time calling them coffee cans) 2 shooters and a set number of shells, and then see who can "kick" their can the farthest across the pit

However, your range estimation leaves a bit to be desired.
The average city has from 15 to 20 blocks per mile, which range from a 260' to 350' frontage so a rough average is about 100 yds, or view as in football fields. Where range becomes difficult to estimate begins at about 300 yds. Depth perception begins to fail as distance increases and visual averages of object sizes begin to aid in range estimations.
Known object heights and an optical protractor with level and trig can give you a pretty good estimation of distance.
OR......
Or just get a good laser range finder :) BUT they can get really expensive after the 1000 or 1200 yard models.
It seems difficult to see 50 ft as being 50 yds though ????

Now here is a real rangefinder
:D

Haven't seen one of these in awhile. So, here's one for fun:

.45 ACP - 10 shots
Springfield Mil-Spec - somewhat modified (well, maybe more than a little)
25 mm Ultradot - 4 moa dot
25 Yards
One hand, no support



The little holes are from a S&W Mod. 41 with a Clark conversion. Same sight, same hold, same distance, 20 shots.
