I'd like to begin shooting my 1903 and 1917 in competition. I've detailed in a Fouling Shot article how I managed to shoot small cast bullet groups using original sights. Part of that equation was using 100 yd. SB targets turned horizontally.
I have ordered the 2 CBA targets that have an orange perimeter and measure approx. 5 1/2" in diameter but I cannot see them well enough to shoot a serious group. By comparison the 100 yd. SB bull is nearly 8" in diameter, and of course, solid black.
So what target do vintage military rifles shoot in competitions; and if it is one of the orange targets mentioned above, how in the world do you see them?
Blessings and stay well, Brooks Harris
