I think if you really want to improve your shooting skills this is the target to do it!  Half MOA dots.  As you can see, I have five fliers. Those fliers are from me flinching every time the guy next to me shoot the same time I was going for trigger break,granted a chey-tac will get your attention but I knew it was happening, I should be able not to flinch at it.

I know the guy who does Storm Tactical.  He used to be an instructor at the school I attend sometimes.  Super good guy, his log books are excellent.

Great target! Just in time for our new range at the hunt club. Looks like 800yds is the most we will get out of it but, I'm not complaining. Got to build the paper roller and the mobile shooting bench. Hope to have that done by months end. Finally get to see what the 270 can do. Good shootin SB, what is you trigger set at? Your shootin partener's precussion wasn't settin you off was it? I say that more or less kiddin. A guy brought a bench rifle he had just finished the the machine class the other night. The trigger was set at 1/2 oz. You literally do not touch that trigger until you want it to fire. And I am confident that precussion from another rifle could set that one off. Even thumping it on the stock would go some times. Tooo light for me by far. He said that was what he wanted so to each his own. Thanks for posting that target. Look froward to seeing what everyone can do with it.

If you have access to an 11x17 or larger printer, here's a variation I made that I like to use:

http://stonetip.com/diagrams/1_mil_15_dot_target.pdf - .5" dots with a 1" outer ring spaced 1 mil (3.6") apart.

Other than zeroing, it's just about the only target I use anymore because it gives you good practice moving the turrets around.

I like this version because:
  1. Since you're aiming at just one spot there's no reason for the other dots to be prominent. They're just for verification.
  2. Having one dark target dot in either aspect gives you the choice of mounting the target vertically or horizontally so you have the option of either running more elevation or more windage.
