Keyholes in the target at 50yds?

OOh! That was quick. Now, I know the rifling is good. It shoots good groups, but I swear the holes are not round coming into the front of that target. Those keyholes with the grey print around them, like normal shots, but not round! It was right next to the backstop at 50yds (indoor range) and I thought maybe something bounced up or around etc. Any ideas?

Was anyone else shooting near you?

That's a serious question. I've had 32 holes in my target in a 30rd qual course and the knucklehead next to me has 28... Stuff like that happens all the time.

Yes, but they should not make that funny hole either. Oh well, I'll see if I can duplicate next time.

I always load an extra round...Soz if your shooting a group thats too close for comfort, I tap your target.


Just kidding, but it happens in competitions and at the practice range alike, I dont know why but there are jerk wads out there who like to shoot your target just to mess with your head...Let 'em see you getting serious, using data carda, ect and for some reason there are those who obviously get a little jealous or repugnant because you are doing more than just blasting a silhouette, thats one of the many reasons I joined a private shooting club.

Then there is always the chance, since you were shooting 100 (Edit, well much less of a chance at 50) yards that someone was shooting 25 yards, and it ricocheted....

My old Sterling loves XM193. Never seen a profile cut in paper at up to 100 yards and my sights (just as I got the gun) hit steel at 300 yards with no adjustment. I have to hold over a tad with Wolf.

Thanks guys. This one is a Sterling. I also has some win-whitebox and some black hills blue box, all 55gr. I'm sure that it wouldn't matter.
