The primer on a 20ga shotgun shell, balanced in the crook of a tree at 100 yards. See who could make the shell fire with a single .22 long rifle shot.
Disclaimer: I am stupid -- don't try this. Know where the shell is pointing, safe backstop, etc., etc., don't try this at home. Not for human consumption. Induce vomiting if swallowed, blah blah blah... :grin:
2" hexagons, 3" triangles and similiar sized misc. targets at the 220 yd line with our silhouette revolvers. Have also enjoyed the 22 cases, staples on targets, always have to buy more of those little push pins when playing indoors in the winter with a 22 pistol on the 50 ft. line. Watched a guy shoot a bumblebee one time.... pretty neat.... it was there.... it was gone. Watched a starling get hit at the 150 yd line with a 220 swift on my range one day thu the spotting scope.... just like in the comics..... poof and it was feathers floating everywhere.
Smallest target -- Staples at 50 yards
I have a Marlin 7000 with a 4x12 mounted on it.(I know it's a little overkill but my old eyes need all the help they can get)
While waiting for a cease fire so I could post my target at the 50 yard range I noticed that I could see the staples in the 1x4 boards where old targets had been torn off. I must confess that I could not resist the temptation to pop a few staples. (Please don't tell the range officers)
People actually used to do that? I talked to a guy who "from what I heard" was/is one of the top small bore pistol shooters and he claimed practice shooting matches to light them. I always thought he was jerking my chain. He did say it was about one out of a thousand, but I still was quite skeptical.
