I agree with separating the rifle classes into small and large bore centerfire and then rimfire being in a class of it's own.Todd said:Centrefire riffles: Large bore and Small bore sounds like a good idea, At closer range it isn't fair for big bore to have to compete against small. At longer ranges its not fair for a small to have to compete against big. Also might make Magnums in another class since most customs are mag cals.
Also rimfire class is a must, cheapest thing going.
Pistols, I'm not sure about sepatating wheel guns from autos as much as separating barrel lenth. 3 1/2" barrel semi-snubby would never be able to compete with say 8" barrel target gun. Also might separate between big and small bore(I beleive .38/.357 is usually the biggest smallbore for pistols) At any rate a big bore pistol needs more inches of barrel to accheive the same degree of stability. While that wouldn't be that big of a deal in the longer barrels it would be very big deal in the shorties. 3.5" .44s and .45s are about like 2" .38s for accuracy... although the gap closes quickly after you break 4"
Air guns: someone more familiar needs to make the rules
I could judge. But I'll have hell to pay if I win a class or two. You know someone would cry fix.
What distances would everyone like?
For pistols I'm thinking 12.5 yards, 25yards, 50 yards, 100 yards, 150 yards would be the pistol ones(the shortest and longest ones would be only with the extremes in barrel lenth) Also for T/C and XP100 owners it won't count for pistol class if its a riffle cal.
Rimfire riffle I'm thinking 50, 100, 200, and 250 would be it
Centrefires could start at 100 yard for the shortest and longest would be 1,000 if anyone dares. I'm not sure how many/which ones to fill in between.
