    The easiest way to determine if Appleseed has anything to offer you is to take a 1" target and put it out to 25 meters (82'). Then, from the unsupported (no bi-pod, mono-pod, sand bags, bench etc) position of your choice (we recommend prone) send 10 rounds down range in under 60sec.

    8 out of 10 in the black is the standard that we teach to.

    If you don't have a 1" square, here is a target I use as a part of my Sunday routine: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3fbTeLjnPFDM2ZQUXBTZHM1S0E/edit?usp=sharing

    The grid is 1MOA and the 2 D silhouettes represent a 24" target at 200 yards.

    If you do meet that standard, then my challenge to you is to become an instructor. We are an all volunteer organization and are always looking for help waking up our fellow American's to their heritage as Riflemen.

    What would the timeframe be for a bolt action?

    This little 'pop quiz' doesn't require a transition, reload or multiple targets. 60 sec is plenty of time for a bolty. A Rifleman's rapid fire is a shot at the bottom of every breath. Normal breathing cycle is 3-5 sec. If your cycling the bolt while your breathing you still have an extra second per shot to work the bolt.

    I'd love to see some results posted up in this thread.

    Here's my 11yo for inspiration :s0087: (although she was shooting 5 round groups not 10)

    Did the young lady above qualify as Rifleman?

    My 22 yo daughter did Appleseed with me a couple of months ago and scored 239/250. She LOVED it. Especially outshooting me.

    She's going to do another Appleseed so she can start on the path to becoming an instructor and recruiting all the young ladies. We've walked the minuteman trail, which was inspirational and sobering.

    I'm newly relocated and would love to help you on a subsequent course. Supposedly I'm an IIT but haven't a clue what that is supposed to mean.


    If anyone would like to learn marksmanship, and especially proper form and principles, Appleseed is perhaps the best and most cost effective means to do so.

    Alas - not yet. That was actually the last shoot she's been too probably 7 months ago. She shoots around a 185. She's a little like her mom - dime sized groups at squares; panics on the AQT.

    It means that you understand the importance of sharing our heritage and marksmanship with others. Welcome to the NW - PM coming.
