Targets for printing

It all started because targets to print available for download on the Internet are mostly crap. Either they use perverse and completely unmetric units of measure, or they are in jpeg 30x30 px format, or they have vanity watermaks all around the page, or are dimensioned for some funny paper sizes, or -- most often -- all of that at once.

That needed fixing. Over the years I have drawn many targets for different distances and activities. It is all posted here in bulk, so that I am not the only one to enjoy the fruits of hours wasted behind the screen.

All targets are in vector format, and can be scaled up or down without loss of quality.

For targets which have dimensions, grids, scales, etc., do not forget to select "scale 1:1" or "do not scale" or whatever is the corresponding option in your PDF printing software.

Pistol


[PDF A4]
The "10" zone is 5 cm, "9" = 10 cm, etc. Black zone = 10 cm = zones 9-10.

[PDF A4]
Same as above, but the black zone is 7-10.

Zeroing of reddots, holoscopes, and other low magnification optics at short distance


[PDF A4]
The fat spot designed for 50 m. The grid in centimeters is for optics with mrad-graduated adjustments. The red zone (without the black border) is 4 MOA at 50 m.

[PDF A4]
Same as above, but with a MOA grid, for MOA-graduated optics adjustments.

[PDF A4]
Same as above, but for 25 m, grid in mrad. The red zone (incl. the black border) is 4 cm and does not correspond to any round MOA.

[PDF A4]
Same as above, MOA grid.

Draft zeroing of serious optics at short distance

Designed for Mildot-style reticles, and mrad-graduated turrets.


[PDF A4]
For 25 m. ACHTUNG! -- not every scope of this type allows to focus or adjust parallax at this distance.

[PDF A4]
Same at 50 m.

Fine zeroing of optics at man-sized distances


[PDF A4]
For 100 m and at least 9x zoom. The grid is 10 + 5 mm, the inner circle is 29 mm (1 MOA at 100 m). If the rifle's dispersion exceeds 2 MOA on an average series of 10 shots, you might want to move in closer (e.g. 50 m), to understand which impact belongs to which target.

[PDF A4]
Designed for 300 m and at least 9x zoom. The grid is 10 mm, the inner circle is 87 mm = 1 MOA at 300 m. Again, the instrument is expected to group at worst 1.5-2 MOA on average 10 shots. Alternatively, the target can be used at 100 m for AKs and similar instruments (you may want to stick the target sideways then; AKs' vertical dispersion is larger than horizontal).

[PDF A3]
Same as above, but an A3 format duopack.

Precision training, groups measures, Internet brag, etc.


[PDF A4]
For 100 m and at least 9x zoom. Same as above (with same reservations), but with a ruler printed instead of grid (for example, to feed the results to TARAN).

[PDF A3]
For 300 m and at least 9x zoom. Simply six circles of 87 mm = 1 MOA at 300 m. The ruler is complimentary.

[PDF A3]
Same as above, but horseshoe-shaped, and bigger (for easier aiming). The target is fine for 100 and 300 m. External diameter of the horseshoes = 100 mm, the dotted circle = 87 mm = 1 MOA at 300 m = 3 MOA at 100 m. The inner grey circle = 29 mm = 1/3 MOA at 300 m = 1 MOA at 100 m.

[PDF A3]
Same as above, but with a grid in inches (can't believe I dit it). This was supposed to be a support weapon in some Internet flame war, but I never actually used it -- civilised units of measures proved to be enough. I am sticking it here, just in case (you never know, this site may have visitors from Liberia).

Mil-spec


[PDF A4]
[PDF A3]
The Swiss army NTTC target. In reality, the target is 45 x 73.5 cm. A3 and A4 versions were made for small shooting ranges and dry fire exercises. As compared to a man-sized target, exercise distances must be reduced by 1.75x and 2.47x respectively.

Fun

I needed some fun targets for complete novices shooting pistols at 50 m. Images come from the Internet, adjusted and vectorised when necessary.

PDFs are sized for A0 paper (~119x84 cm). For shooter who are not complete novices this can be reduced to A1 at 50 m, or A3 at 25 m. Also, for example, the Infernal Teletubbie in A3 makes an excellent target for a scoped .22 LR at 200 m.

In principle, it is with great sympathy and attention that I follow and support efforts to protect the environment. However, the following target gives a pretty clear idea of what I think of "political ecology", all sorts of "green" political parties and organisations, and the associated anti-human hypocrisy.


[PDF A3]
Just right for rifle at 150-200 m or pistol at 25 m.
