As I was saying in the last post, it’s interesting to contrast this data with the Schutzenfest data

Very early days in terms of evaluating or even translating the data but based on the first one, it seems that we can expect good shooters to be able to hit a 10″ target from about 120 meters fairly often.

How do we translate that into a human sized target? It’s hard to say. But I’d say if you can hit the 10″ target say 30% of the time at that distance then you could probably hit the human target 80% of the time.
