Accuracy test of HEXTA and SMT targets by Daniel Consultants Pty Ltd, Sydney, Australia (2017).

Two systems, open sensor target SMT and closed chamber target HEXTA, were tested for accuracy at the Read Range (PA, USA) against the actual shot positions plotted on paper.

Target Accuracy Test Report was setup and report was published by the owners of the SMT target – Read Range  (PA, USA). The test was observed, results analyzed and described by Daniel Consultants Pty Ltd firm, Sydney, Australia.

Note: These results correlate precisely with theoretical calculations (link) published by Hex Systems in the article “Acoustic chamber targets: what you need to know (2015)“.

 

Comprehensive testing of Silver Mountain Targets by David Stewart and Peter Smith (15-Sept-2017).

“These tests comprise about 350 High Precision measurements of Shot holes matched to the G2 SMT Target reported shot positions plus about 200 lower precision but measured test groups.
Target Accuracy, Precision (variability), and Target Setup are addressed in some detail in the 50 page report.
More testing at 1000y needs to be done but that is beyond our resources.
Anyone who has, or is contemplating Silver Mountain Targets should study this report in full.
