February 200m High Power Silhouette Match

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (

Silhouette shooting

Some video of centerfire silhouette shooting near the Riverhead range, Auckland. Distances is 200m only, so the other targets are scaled to match. Usually rams the last target is set at 500m away.

If you think you're an ace shooter, try silhouette shooting sometime. 200m+, free standing with no slings, gloves or shooting aids. Sorts out the COD players from real shooters :-)

The quieter shots in this video are from a suppressed Remington 700 in 223, and a suppressed Howa 1500 in 223. The vapour trails seen are from the 223's, both zeroed to 200m and used in the other videos on long range rabbit sniping.

Slo motion shots recorded on Casio EX-FC100, music is from Freemusic.

Continuing Savage B22 FV-SR Review: Smallbore Silhouette Match Shoot

More practical testing! This time I took the bone-stock Savage B22 FV-SR to a Smallbore Silhouette Match. Let's see how it performed!

The rimfire egg challenge was a lot of fun. I liked how it challenged my shooting skills in three stances. Now for something very different, and very difficult.

Silhouette shooting allows only one stance - standing, offhand. No muzzle devices are allowed. No slings. No supports of any kind. The steel targets are very small, and located at four distances. You have chickens at 40 meters, pigs at 60 meters, turkeys at 77 meters, and rams at 100 meters. Keep in mind that you may only use .22LR ammunition or slower, and no specialty ammo like CCI Stingers are allowed.

Serious competitors choose a heavy target rifle and a high-magnification scope. In my case, I've using a Savage B22 FV-SR and a 5-20x50mm Weaver Grand Slam Multi-Stop scope that was a brilliant choice for this match. The Multi-Stop elevation turret let me easily spin up to the color-coded elevation points, and then I handled windage with the MOA hash marks in the modified target-dot reticle. I had a lot of fun shooting in two relays, but I did score pretty low. 14/40 in the first relay; 11/40 in the second. With a heavy stock to add mass and re-balance the rifle, I could probably pick up quite a few more points. The plastic stock works well as a compromise between hunting and range purposes. A dedicated B22 silhouette rifle needs a more vertical grip, and a better balance toward the rear of the gun. Hopefully soon we'll start seeing aftermarket stocks from Boyds.

Gabriola smallbore metallic silhouette match day

Finally made it over to Gabriola for their monthly metallic silhouette match. After a quick ~20 minute ferry ride out of Nanaimo, and a ~10 minute drive from the ferry, we arrived at the Gabriola Rod, Gun & Conservation Club for a day of smallbore metallic silhouette shooting. Was a good day of shooting, despite the rain. They've got a pretty nice range, in a great location. Gonna have to make it a monthly thing!
