Smallbore Silhouette


A Silhouette match requires shooting 1/5 scale steel targets representing game animals at varying distances following the rules established by the NRA. The targets are metallic silhouettes of rams, turkeys, pigs, and chickens as shown below. They are cut to different scales and set at varying distances from the shooter and fall when hit.

Targets distances are as follows:
  • (10) Chickens - 40 meters
  • (10) Pigs - 60 meters (non-standard distance)
  • (10) Turkeys - 77 meters (non-standard distance)
  • (10) Rams - 100 meters
