I was given a free ten day shooting pass at the range today. 
The range master was watching me and my daughter consistently grouping ten shots inside the red circle on my targets at 100 yards with the Faux 1943 No4MkI* T rifle. I had one round with a dead primer that never fired. The range master had me walk the round out to the target and told me that if I could hit the cartridge with the first shot,he would give me a ten day shooting pass for free. Five certified range masters and my daughter watched the cartridge fall off the target frame after my shot was fired. After the cease fire was called and everyone was cleared,we walked out to the target. There was the cartridge with a hole in it. The target pictured has ten holes in it,shot at a distance of 100 yards. I am extremely satisfied that this rifle is as accurate as it is...

I don’t know how you could even see a cartridge case at 100 yards!  But I like the idea of that challenge!

How about a Charger full of 303, penetrated by a 7.92 ?

The original is in a WW1 period book in a French Museum.

The sunlight was making the case light up like a neon sign and the bottom of the target board had piece of black duct tape the cartridge was in front of. I put the rectical post right on the bottom of the shiny cartridge,took a breathe,breathed out slowly,and fired.
