This is my 6.5x47L load with a 0.020" jump, had similar results when I tried them on my 6.5CM with a 0.010" jump.

Made them in Excel. Here's a .pdf
At the risk of sounding like an inconsiderate douche, and believe me that's not the intent because the target is awesome and I really appreciate you making it available...

When I print it on 8.5x11, each 0.25 target box measures roughly 0.16 for me. Do you know if there's a formatting issue converting from .xls to PDF, or perhaps something is up with my printer?

Again, THANK YOU for your target and any assistance you are willing to provide!

No problem.

The excel file is designed to print at 11*17, so if you scale down, everything scales. If you want 8.5 by 11, you’ll have to edit the excel file, remove those individual targets that won’t fit on the new page size and save as pdf.

I’ll provide a link to the excel file to revise and save however you desire. I’ve also got a MIL (.36 squares) version as well.

They work great for load development.

They are not jump sensitive at all. I’ve jammed them and jumped them and they just shoot strait. Very forgiving in that aspect.

You‘re welcome.

It’s easy to do now that I have a template. I’m actually going to add a smaller diamond inside the diamond. It’s a bit big as is and allows for too much “float” around the inside. I’ve actually started using the tip of the diamond as the aim point - it’s more precise.

Dude. Please present your ass, so that I may appropriately kiss it in gratitude. Great target.
No shit I used these targets today to make cold weather loads. I had to share the wealth with a couple friends though they were jealous

When printing on normal letter paper from printer (8.5x11) do I need to do anything special in printer settings or anything ? I've printed a couple of the mil targets and the squares are awfully small and def aren't measuring .36" with my calipers .
What am I doing wrong ?

Edit
Played around in excel and got it close enough. Trying to mod a excel worksheet on a tablet sucks !
Thanks again for the target

@Pilotscrappy Did you check your print margins? I am guessing you are trying to print the 8.5 and not 11x17 as it would only print half on one page. The PDFs were pretty close for me. Messing with the excel wasn't worth the hassle.

This applies to the MIL version as well. The 11*17 will scale (incorrectly) if printed at 8.5 * 11.
I’ll get an 8.5*11 MIL pdf up when i get back from the range today.

Here's a couple other design ideas. (Ignore the green triangles, they're an Excel artifact)

Exactly, I did print the 8.5x11 and the cells were scaled down thus not accurate. 36" @ 100 yards.

I did play around a bit with excel and at least got it to print me two targets that are correct size on a 8.5x11 piece of paper.
