Just curious, will the eggs be sitting on a table of sorts? Hung by a rope? if they are sitting on a table, and the bullet strikes the table infront of the egg but still manages to break it, does that count? If hung by a rope, what if the rope gets shot and the egg drops to the ground? Does that count?
Just what holds the eggs in place?
I will be amazed if many of us can hit an egg at 200 yards, off shooting sticks, let alone 300 or 400 yards!

I am a little concerned with the whole egg shoot deal. WHy an egg, I mean come on, let's get challenging. How about an alka-seltzer tablet or an aspirin?

If I was attending, I would show you all how to shoot. I can shoot the middles out of Cheerio's. Just open up a package and see for yourself.

The (tentative) plan is to hang them in mesh "bags" to lessen the possibility of accidental hits, but basically yes TR, if your egg is broken you move on to the next stage no matter how it happens.

If the wind is kicking we can start it at a shorter range, but otherwise I would actually expect everybody to hit their egg at 200YDs. I've seen you make first shot hits on a PD with a 17hmr at that range TR. In the Egg Shoot you will have up to 6 shots to do the same thing. A hit moves you on to the next stage whether it's the 1st shot or the 6th.

Read the Egg Shooting Test thread in this forum, and try it out for yourself. I think you'll find it's not as difficult as you're thinking. I've allowed for up to a 500YD stage, but I honestly think the field will be cut a lot at 300YDs and the winner will possibly be determined at 400, basically because we will all be shooting from sticks (with no wind).

I've never competed in one, but there have been a number of 1000YD egg shoots. Those are off a bench of course, and using (mostly) heavy benchrest guns.

Guys,
My daughter won the GO Go Varmint Egg Shoot(youth division 18 and under) two years ago when she was only eleven! She hit 10 eggs at 100yards and 7 eggs at 200yds(sudden death shoot-off) with a completely stock Ruger 77VT in 22PPC. I would be surprised if everyone doesn't get their egg!
An easy way to hold the eggs is to hot glue them to a golf tee and stick them into holes drilled in a 2x4 frame. You will definitely be able to tell a true hit! Can we all say "Scrambled"!

I hadn't even considered golf tees. Thanks Nikonut, that may be just the ticket.

Tees work great and you can still use the cartons to carry the eggs, too. Just be sure and leave the eggs out of the refrigerator to warm up a bit or they will sweat making them harder to glue.

Where can we find golf tees appropriate for my eggs? I get to shoot at ostrich eggs, the rest of y'all get to shoot at hummingbird eggs.

I'd like to know if you are going to provide a place to check the sights on the rifles before the shoot? How about coffee and donuts?




Will we be able to make sure our rifles are still sighted in. 8 to 9 hundred miles makes for some bangen and clangen when haulin our rifles that far.

The reservation normally doesn't allow target shooting, they are making an exception for us, and we will be limited to the 1st.

So yes, you will be able to re-check a 1 or 200YD zero before the shoot, but you probably won't be able to start from scratch figuring comeups for further ranges.

PG48, Last 2 times I have gone out there, I kept the guns in soft cases on top of everything else. I really seemed to work out. I also have a 4 rifle SKB hard case that you can borrow if you wish. I am only about 25 minutes down the road from you. I live behind El Vaquero in Westpark on the west side of Stilly.

Is a 40X barreled action in a Remington 700 BDL stock legal?

Should be Bill, as long as it's under the weight limit. Mine is, even with a wooden highpower stock.

I need new bathroom scales, that didn't prove anything, except they aren't accurate or repeatable.

Weight limit? what weight limit? I had to go back and read the first post, then weigh my cooper. it came in at 15 lbs. I reckon I will have to start over. and it was getting downright scary. Oh well.
