Title: Nearly all my target shoots have been at the wrong distance.
Post by: MarkS34 on June 18, 2010, 06:20:02 AM
I just went out and remeasured my range. I don't know how I messed it up so bad the first time around, but I've been shooting 10m at 23ft and 20yd at nearly 28yd! So, ignore my score every where it may appear. I gotsta start over. The only thing I was shooting even close to the right range was the 30yd bench (my least frequent match) at 100ft.

Measured it twice this time, drew a little map, wrote it all down, and double checked the math. Was hoping to shoot a match today, but I've gotta spend some time sighting in at the proper distances.

Sorry everyone. I should have it right from now on.

It's just plain embarrassing.

Must have been the measuring tape. Probably had been misprinted. Happens to me all the time.

Heh... the tape! I never thought of that. Of course it's the equipment's fault.

Thanks! Now I feel better.  :)
