R1 GAUNTLET TARGET FEED BACK
« on: November 26, 2018, 07:07:20 pm »
Please can anyone who shot the Gauntlet on Sunday please let me know what you thought  of the longer distance 30mm target so we can give some feed back to UKAHFT. Interested to know how well you could see the target at the time you shot it and what scope you were using, cheers Dave.

I and my partner Dave T both nailed it Dave. No problem to see it, but it was challenging in the wind! I also saw a number of other shooters drop it and I personally dont think it will cause anybody to slash their wrists over it. If we cant have 50 yard targets I suppose this is the next best thing............

When i pulled it in, it wasnt mega shot up, but only 32 shooters. Some good history on it. It brackets same as a 40y 25mm, so some had dropped out the bottom edge. Its a rubbish target, needs getting rid of for us who cant range find  _evil

My set up is to see a clear target at 20yds and use blur to help judge distance so I expect to see a decent amount at 45yds. This did make that kill size hard to distinguish especially as we shot it near the end of the round when some of the paint was shot away. That said I think it's a good demanding shot to add to the HFT format and yes I did score a 2 on it.

I donít think they will cause too many problems Dave, as long as you can range find and tell the difference between 25 & 30mm  _evil

Unlike most people, apart from the obvious 15mm targets, I havent got a clue what range the sized kills are set at. Personally, i just estimate the range with good old failing eyes and hope for the best. That will be why I am [I'm an IDIOT].

Mmmm... think I'm gonna need some more info on the trees before I respond.  ;D

No, I thought it was that one, I mentioned it to Bill at the peg as it looked smaller just by eye.
No problems seeing through the scope, didn't go full on my 45yd aimpoint as was slightly downhill, wind left to right. Didn't give it enough left hand tho as hit the plate just outside the kill at about 2oclock, which surprised me if it was full distance, unless the wind pushed it up.
Sorry you asked now eh? 😄

Don't see an issue using these going forward.
