    Box to Bench Precision is excited to announce the release of The Ultimate Hunting Target!


    This target will have 15 scenarios to work through at 100 yards. Once completed, you will have tested the rifle, scope, and shooter with over 700 MOA or 200 Mils of scope adjustments.


    Here are 2 scenario examples:


    Scenario #4 British Columbia Caribou

    Aim at Bullseye number 1

    Center of the heart is up 31.71" and Right 1.04"

    Dial Up 30.25MOA or 8.8 Mils

    Dial Right 1 MOA or .3 Mils

    Scenario #8 Utah Elk

    Aim at Bullseye #2

    Center of the heart is up 27.43" and left 7.926"

    Dial up 26.25 MOA/ 7.6 Mils

    Dial left 7.5 moa/2.2 Mils


    This is a score based target with higher points for the heart and vitals. The vitals get smaller as the range on the turrets increase.


    Our first time shooting this target has already shown a few errors. We had one higher end scope that in order to hit the 8.8-9.3 Mil targets we had to adjust the zero down .2 Mils of elevation which in turn causes you to hit low on the Fox Scenario at only 1.3 Mils. The value of the turret is going to need adjusting on this scope. Picture included. We should have the targets for sale this weekend.

    Introduction:

    The Ultimate Hunting Target, designed and developed by Box To Bench Precision LLC, is an advanced precision hunting target. It will test the shooter’s ability, as well as the capability of the rifle, scope, ammunition, and equipment as a whole. This target will show the effects of an improperly leveled scope, the importance of a precise zero, and the capability of a riflescope to accurately track and return to zero. This target will challenge shooters of all skill levels. Practicing with this target can help new shooters to acquire the necessary skills for long range hunting, as well as hone those of the more advanced shooters.

    The Ultimate Hunting Target measures 38 inches tall by 24 inches wide. It features 15 different scope tracking scenarios that require the shooter to dial windage and elevation given from the scenario directions below. The variety of scope tracking scenarios will test you and your equipment with approximately 700 MOA or 200 Milliradians of scope travel. The entire target is designed to be shot at precisely 100 yards, and it is calibrated for use with riflescopes using 1 inch per hundred yards (IPHY), Milliradians (MILS), and true minute of angle (MOA). [​IMG][​IMG]

    Necessities:

    • Rifle: caliber of your choice with quality ammo (17 rounds required)

    • Precise Zero and Level Scope

    • Scope: turrets capable of 33.5 MOA or 9.3 MILS of travel above your zero,14.5 MOA or 4.2 MILS windage travel

    • Target: leveled with builder’s level through the center of the bullseye, or level the top of the target. Staple it flat and wrinkle free.

    Instructions:

    Once your rifle is zeroed, you will engage 15 scope tracking scenarios (animals). You will be given 1 of 3 corresponding bullseye spots, along with an elevation and windage adjustment. For example: the Alaskan moose uses bullseye number 2. From the directions below, you will dial the adjustments for the Alaskan moose, aim at the number 2 bullseye, and the shot should impact the moose in the center of the target spot on its body. Next, return your riflescope to zero, and move on to the next scenario. Repeat.

    There are also 2 bonus animals that will require the shooter to determine his/her own adjustments, based on their own scope. One is a squirrel that measures .25 inches, shot from bullseye number 1, and the other is a rabbit at .5 inches tall, shot from bullseye number 2.

    The Ultimate Hunting Target Scoring:

    • Animal’s body: 1 point

    • Inside the 1 inch circle: 2 points

    • Vital zone: 4 Points

    • Heart: 7 points

    • Bonus Squirrel: 10 points

    • Bonus Rabbit: 5 points
    If any bullet breaks a scoring line, the higher score is recognized. The vital zone and heart decrease in size as the rifle scope increases in elevation.

    The Ultimate Hunting Target Challenge:

    Every month we are giving away $75 in free targets from Box to Bench Precision, LLC. to qualify, submit a photo of the shooter with their rifle and
    completed target. In addition, please submit a close up picture of the target so that the impacts can be seen. The top shooters will be featured on the

    monthly Ultimate Hunting Target Challenge Board. Each verified submission will get an entry to win the $75 in targets. Only two entries a month per person. No duplicate targets will be accepted. Submit your entries to [email protected].

    A very real test of the tracking of your optics. Curious how you laid out the MOA/MILs on the target to get real life measurements. Looks like fun.

    All three scopes IPHY, MOA and MILS, are very close to the center of the heart. Give or take .090 thousand of an inch on some.
