Missing in action - one hole. Empty Missing in action - one hole.

Post by mikemyers 8/12/2020, 3:27 pm

I had a fun match with a friend this morning at 25 and 15 yards.  We were both shooting Model 52's.

What is the appropriate way to score this target?  I know I fired 10 rounds, and I may be a little rough still at calling my shots, but all ten rounds felt perfect.  Then I found this.   

I gave myself 90 points, so my friend beat me by one point, but what happens at a real match where two rounds go through one hole?

You have either better eyes than I do (quite likely) or infinitely more experience at this than I have (absolutely).  I agree it's there, somewhere, but I can't find any sign of it.

Hello mikemyers,

I'd say either the x at 3 or the right 10... both have some extra tearing. The rule book says the benefit of the doubt goes to the shooter so if i were scoring, it would be an x...

3 o'clock in the X-ring. Best guess from here..........

It's 5:30 in the X. I wouldn't even need an overlay. If you did overlay you would see that the hole is a little long top to bottom. I don't look very hard for missing shots if everything is inside the 10 ring. I used to score Mel Makin a lot. I could of spent half the match looking for bullets that went thru the same hole.

Look at it from the back.  Often it becomes apparent then.  The 3 o’clock X is the suspect.

You can't plug a double. Scorer should use an overlay to see if they can identify the double, that's part of the function of an overlay. Then you challenge, if you don't agree. (But the referee will score the whole target, so don't be surprised if some of the other "close" shot holes get scored the other way.)

Some referees might use a "carrot" to check for doubles if the cardboard backer is new. I've got one that Dennis Willing gave me years ago. It's a tapered brass plug with engraved rings along the length. You can drop it in various shot holes and it will settle just a little deeper in a really close double hole.

An "Eagle Eye" scoring aid can be used, but only as a magnifier since it's not NRA approved (as of my last inquiry).

I would call the 5 o'clock 10 a double.

I guess I'f we're giving away points
it might as well be the 7 o'clock X that caused the tear out to the 9 o'clock X
.38 148 gr bullets are notorious for yawing at various yardages.

I think John is correct. But would need to look at that X at 3:00 first.

The "carrot" works well when you have stiff cardboard backing, as at Camp Perry. It's not very useful elsewhere.

The "Eagle Eye" is complete garbage in my experience.

As a magnifier, its ok. Don't like / trust the etched rings very much. I use one to see the "leaded edge" when needed as I've gotten older and blind.

Overlays and carrots??????

OK, I'll find out what they are and where to buy one.  

As someone noted up above, I photographed the back of the target.  As noted, to my eyes, one hole is clearly not quite round, and the shadow shows this quite clearly, 6:30 in the 10 ring.  (It's a mirror image as seen from the back).  5:30 in the X-ring is my other guess.  I'm just looking at shapes and guessing, I've got zero experience at this.

Maybe I should flip the image from the back side, so the positions match the front view.  

Great, instead of not knowing any holes that might be a double, now I've got at least three holes to choose from.
Of course, the good news, is that the score is now 100, but it's only at 15 yards.  Nice, but no cigar!

PM an address and I will send you a set of overlays, I have an extra set. If I were scoring the target it would either be the 5 o clock 10, or the 7 o clock x

Well, I found this, but no clear answer.  I'll check with Champions Choice.
