There is a sanctioned match not that far away from me tomorrow. Iím going to try to get down there to watch, if they will let me. Iíve never even seen a Benchrest match. Thanks for your input.
    Club events are an excellent way to start in Benchrest shooting, your 223 will be just fine and you really should not need a huge amount of ammunition either. Local events can be score only or score and group acknowledgement, there are also FTR events where 223 and 308 are the only calibers allowed.
    Go to oneĎ meet people and expand to the next event etc.

    I buy 100# cardstock at one of the discount office stores. I then drop it off at a sign shop who generated a program of the type of targets I want printed and its very reasonably done. When I get low I just drop off some more card stock and have them printed out in just a couple of days. Problem with printing my own is the replacement cost for the ink cartridges costs allot more than what the sign shop actually charges to have it done.

    buy a better/bigger printer
    i print mine and have used 1 ink cartridge in 3 years.
    yes it is big...but was only about $100.
    the little home printers are a scam to sell over priced ink.

    Practice on the target you are going to shoot in competition. That means get them from Orville Printing. In the great scheme of things, practice targets are so minor of an expense.

    the rings i print are the same size as a real target.
    35 to a sheet...
    zero time spent change targets/ zero down time for the range. and cost pennies.
    you do what you want with your money, i spent mine on reloading supplies

If it does meet the rules and it shoots like that, you'll be very competitive. You'll gain a lot of knowledge by shooting that you won't by simply watching, but either way..go and enjoy.

    There may be a gun for sale there or someone there may know of one or more for sale. I have a couple of pandas that i'm going through now that will be very reasonably priced very soon.
