At my club we shoot bullseye on two targets which have the same size bull, including seven ring for precision, but only nine and ten for timed and rapid. The rings are much larger on the timed/rapid target. We are shooting both at the same distance, so I figured that the precision was scaled to reproduce the visual effect of a target at twice the distance, but with more rings black.
Now the target described in the rule book is 5.54 inches to the nine, but only 8 inches to the eight. The latter is less than twice the diameter of the former, but placed at twice the distance. Does this mean that one bull looks smaller than the other when you are shooting?
: I copied the specs from the NRA rulebook, Gordon.
: "NRA Rule 4.8: 50 yard slow fire Standard American Target - 8, 9 and 10 rings black."
: I've shot on them for 47 years.
: Perhaps you are thinking of the ISSF 25 Meter Precision and 50 Meter Pistol target (used for Standard Pistol and Free Pistol), which is black to the seven-ring?

: : Mike,
: : That is what I need to know.
: : But are you sure that the slow fire bull is not black out to the seven ring? that would be twice the nine ring (timed and rapid at 25 yards), and thus the bull would look the same at both distances.
: : Thanks,

: : : Yes, five-shot strings in 20 seconds and 10 seconds, respectively, for Timed and Rapid.
: : : 10 shots Slow, 10 Timed, and 10 Rapid for a total of 30 shots (300 points max.)That is the "National Match Course".
: : : The scoring rings are the same size at 50 and 25 yards. The 50-yard target has black out to the eight-ring. The 25-yard target has only the nine and ten rings black. The diameter of the ten-ring is 3.36 inches.
: : : NRA Rule 4.8: 50 yard slow fire Standard American Target - 8, 9 and 10 rings black.
: : : X ring . . . . . . . . . . 1.695 in
: : : 10 ring . . . . . . . . . . . 3.36 in
: : : 9 ring . . . . . . . . . . . . 5.54 in
: : : 8 ring . . . . . . . . . . . . 8.00 in

: : : : Hi again,
: : : : Sorry I didn`t respond sooner, but I had to go out of town right after my initial post.
: : : : Ten minutes for ten shots on the slow stage sounds right, but the timed and rapid must be five shot strings, right?
: : : : How many rounds will be fired in total? 300 points? Six hundred? or more?
: : : : How many inches across is the bullseye? The same at both distances? or different?
: : : : I"ve got a lot of .38 wadcutters lying around, and this match looks like just the motiviation I need to start practicing with them.
: : : : Best Regards,
