Is there a rifle version of Bullseye?

Does it exist?

You would make a standing, unsupported shot with a rifle in a Bullseye type format.

NOT 3-position rifle or rested in any fashion. This would be free-standing rifle shots ONLY.

Sounds like an ISSF event, but just wondering.

If not there should be. Use .22 semi auto rifles, 50 yard slow fire, 25 yard timed and rapid. Targets of about 25% of pistol target sizes. Scored exactly the same. Would be fun.

If my performance in service rifle/highpower is any indication, I would be quite good at it.

That lying down on the ground thing, however, is a horse of a different color.

Do we have to shoot with one hand?

We have a 1,000 point offhand match every year, all slow fire at 200yds.  I believe a 985 won it last year or maybe the year before.

Smallbore rifle silhouette is the closest thing I can think of.

The silhouette games would be close.  Second would be Service Rifle Highpower.

It would be cool to shoot rifle offhand 10 shots SF, 5+5 TF, 5+5 RF.  Range, times and targets would have to be determined.

Offhand sustained fire with a service rifle would be a hoot. I would love that.

Bolt gun too.  It doesn't have to be purpose built.  Include hunt/sport guns.  Sako Forrester for example

I spent a while this morning looking at silhouette shooting websites.  Interesting format and a wide variety of firearm choice.   Thanks for the alternative ideas too.  

The highpower silhouette rifles shoot up to 200-500 yards or meters offhand.

The smallbore silhouette rifles go from 50-100 and use a reduced target.

It looks challenging, but approachable.

Silhouette folks shoot for score on a non score target,  a hit is a hit, as long as the target falls over it is good,

small bore can be quite challenging, (Know a guy that was very very good at it)

Smallbore (standing, sitting or kneeling, and prone) and Service or Match rifle are close,
different distances, and you have rapids (10 shots in 70 seconds or so with a reload) 
you do shoot for score (standard X ring target)

Service Rifle can be quite challenging as well, and actually a great deal of fun

Rifle Running Target always looked like a hoot.

Here are some folks hitting the ten ring:



10m Running Target Men Medal matches - 2016 ISSF Running Target World Championship in Suhl (GER)





ISSF 10 meter running target

"The 10 meter target center ring is smaller than a pencil eraser and crosses a 2 meter opening slow and fast speed, time between runs has a minimum of 12 seconds and a max of 24 seconds."

ISSF 50 meter running target

Infantry Trophy Team
http://thecmp.org/competitions/cmp-national-matches/national-trophy-rifle-matches/national-trophy-infantry-team-match/

If any team of 6 competitors has not fired all of the issued 384 rounds at the 600, 500, and then 300 yard lines, all with decreasing value for each hit on a silhouette target, the team will fire any remaining rounds at the 200 yard line from the standing position.  

This is a Service Rifle match.  Presently one my use the AR platform.  When I shot ITT the Service Rifle was a match M-14 or civilian M-1A, or an M-1 Garand.  Shooting standing rapid fire with a 7.62 was fun but luckily we never needed to shoot the 200 yard line in a match.

i'm not certain it is NRA sanctioned but an acquaintance in Oregon just shot a new world record for 5 rounds at the 600 yard line with a 6mm.  He belongs to a club near Portland shooting 600 and 1000 yard rifle benchrest.

There is no artificial support allowed in Metallic Silhouette games. No slings, jackets, boots, gloves. Weather appropriate loose clothing. There are categories for scoped and iron sights. 5 shoots in 2 or 2.5 min (depends on the category). Its challenging enough to skip the rapid fire. Easy humbles the person who thinks of themselves as a good rifle shooters.

That's for sure. It doesn't get better as your eyes get older either.
