Beginning Rifle - Ideal Setup?
Friendly greetings everyone.
I've recently started working on developing some basic skill with a rifle. For the moment I'm using a borrowed .22lr. I'm curious what types of training setups are useful for new shooters. At the moment I've got a target set up at 25 yards, shooting off a mat in prone unsupported.
* Is 25 yards a good starting range? So far I'm getting 4 inch groups, but I'm not sure if I should be continuing working at 25 yards or start moving back.
* At what point should I start moving the target back, and by what increments?
* Should I be more focused on accuracy, or precision?
* Is there an ideal type of paper target to fire at? Presumably a NRA-style bullseye target, but I want to know if there are any alternatives that may be better.
Thanks very much for taking the time to read this. *tips hat*
