Swiss Rifle Match targets

I have been queried numerous times of late about the range at which we compete during the Bucks County Schützenfest. In Switzerland, the normal distance is 300 meters.

Unfortunately, the rifle range I compete at is limited to 100 yards. Therefore we shoot at targets that are scaled down appropriately. The 10 round box of 7.5x55mm ammunition shown below provides a scale reference for how small the targets are. The “X” ring on the A10 target is about the same as the base of a cartridge case!
