    I think that's already been done. Brian Volker a few years ago.

    How about fattening the pot some.

    A few weeks ago I would have said that this is impossible. Experience shooting and watching ABRA has changed my mind. I still believe that the best 22 semiautomatic will be at a handicap against the best bolt action but it might happen in a year or two.

    I think that wager should include a 250 in 50/50. I would like to see this happen in any registered match. Maybe we should add some of the proceeds from ABRA matchs to that pot to make it more fun.

    By the way, we in San Angelo are enjoying Joe Chacon's ABRA (Automatic Benchrest Association), as well as, ARA.

    I have never seen or shot and IR 50/50 card, I guess I am going to have to get a couple and see how easy or how hard it is. If you got a few send me some, and I will shot them, then let you know.

    Joe, It is probably a little easier to score a 250 on a 50/50 card but then the x count becomes the factor. It is what you get used to. I prefer the 50/50 because it is counted on the high edge and is just more logical to my fuzzy way of thinking but I will shoot the target of the friends I shoot with. I think that all I have is shot targets but I will check and see.

    If I knew the diameter of the ABRA 10-ring, I might be able to make some comparisons and calculate the probability of perfect scores on the ABRA, IR50, and ARA targets.

    Landy, The Automatic Bench Rest target, which Joe designed, is easier than the ARA target because it was meant to be shot with simi-automatic .22 rimfire rifles. The 10 ring is very small to make a perfect score very difficult. Joe can give you the information you seek.

    We are all surprised at how well some of these tricked out rifles are shooting. There are two classes: unliminited and factory.

    This would be fantastic, hoping Joe gets back with those dimensions...

    Target

    The 9 ring is .450 outside to outside and the ten ring is 1/8" when I get home I will put up a pic of our Target so you can see or you can go to our web site www.autobenchrestassociation.com

    10-ring=0.125"
    9-ring=0.450"

    That's all I need and I'll try and take a closer look in the next couple of days....unless it interrupts my viewing of the college Bowl games! LOL
    First thing I need to do is get a tractor started in -10 deg temps to move some snow and then shovel my walks.

    Later,

    Stats...

    According to Joe's Website Competitor's listings...

    Joe is averaging a 191.3 AGG out of a possible 200...Across 30 Targets.

    That is some pretty decent accuracy, will be curious to see Landy's specs and how it all works out.
