You guys that silhouette shoot, what power and make scope do you use?
That's pretty strange because the rifle club I belong to shoots with scopes and has four different distances, I believe the longest being 77 meters. But the size of the targets are mighty small, I don't think Annie Oakley could hit them with open sights. Could the size of the targets have any bearing on whether you use a scope or not? Are there different rules for different ranges? I know guys from other clubs come to ours to compete. I have never done any silhouette shooting myself but one of the guys that does said he uses anywhere from a 15 to 24 power scope. I was just wondering what other silhouette shooters use. I was shooting pictures for our youth shoot last Saturday and was roaming between 10 different ranges and thought it might be interesting to try my hand at silhouette shooting.You use nothing because you have to use iron sights.
They might have a division where they use scopes but you'd need a
600 yard range for that I believe.
All the 200 yard stuff is iron sights only.
I suppose it is kinda confusing, especially for people like me who have never been to a match. Probably good thing for me , as I think it would be addictive.
I remember seeing an ad in a shooting magazine that had a lead bullet hitting a steel ram at the exact time of impact with a caption that read" the first time you do THIS , we Gotcha "
