    Has anybody shot a Project Appleseed Match? Was at the club last week and a guy said that we are having a match (22LR) but I will be out of town.
    He gave me a target that they use and I found it very interesting. Setup at 25 yards but there is 3 or 4 different size targets representing 25 yards, 50 yards, 75 yards and 100. They just get smaller. Shooter can use an optic but no support other than a sling.

    Look like fun

    They aren’t matches, they are training. Not a competition except with yourself to make a rifleman score.

    The target you saw simulates full size silhouettes at 100,200,300,400 yards.

    I've shot three now. I really enjoy them. If you enjoy history and shooting, you can't go wrong with appleseed. If you have any other questions, about them, ask away.

    I also enjoyed the AS event I attended last October. Lots of good instruction going on at the home range in Ramseur. I believe that training prepared me well for service rifle.

    I find myself now completely fixated on high power though and just cannot find time to do it all.

    Quick question, what rifle do folks reccomend for this? I have a buddy who did it and he had a good experience. I'm thinking of doing this with my 11 yr old.

    10/22. Get a set of tech sights for it and a gi sling plus three mags. It will be the easiest and you'll have less to worry about. Working a bolt and keeping npoa while on the clock is a tough thing to master.

    Got the 10/22 covered. It has a cheap Barska scope on it now. I'll look into the tech sights.

    You can use the barska. It won't hurt anything as long as it's no more than 6 power, but it amplifies how much you are moving when you look through the scope.

    I ordered some targets from Appleseed.org and they came in today. This is only one of them with the rules. Not sure how to rotate the second photo.

    Yep. @Fynn nailed it. But I will say the forum is mostly used by instructors more than participants, probably about 70/30. The target you are looking at is called a "red coat". They use this target as a measure of where you are currently. It's usually done at the beginning and ending of every day, and they use it as a metric to see where gains are made as an organization. They normally shoot these targets from prone and it's three per silhouette and one for the little rectangle (also known as a shingle, but I won't give the cool story behind it away.) The actual target they use has scoring rings inside those silhouettes and are used to achieve "rifleman" status. If you would like some of those, let me know and I'll send you a few in the mail. I ordered 200 and haven't even been through half of them yet.

    The KD one is fun. I shot it with my suppressed AR, with 3.5x ACOG two summers ago. 400yd max range.

    Slow is slow thanks for the offer for the targets. When I order them I also ordered:

    AS903 - Appleseed AQT Target
    AS912 - Red Coat
    AS915 - 100 yd. AQT

    Not sure what order I should be shooting them.

    Hi, the AS forum I linked above has all of the answers you need to questions that haven't even occurred to you yet :D

    Trust me, there is a wealth of information and a huge pool of experience to draw from if you are willing to read through and ask questions.

    In fact, you can begin getting mentored by prospective instructors in your state before you even get to the event.
