Evolution of Project
The goal of this project was to reproduce helpful bore sighting targets and allow non-commercial distribution.
The working assumptions are:
- Basic computer graphic skillset.
- Knowledge necessary to manually manipulate computer printer feed trays.
- A working knowledge and experience downloading and installing application software.
OpenSource LibreOffice Draw. Mac, Windows, Linux Copy-Paste URL**: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/

- Author: Original artist/author of the target is unknown
- Associated Publication: A target similar was used during bore hunting rifles in April, 2021. The target appeared as one of four
on a large sheet. The sheet was prinited without copyright information was
- Target Rendering:
- Printable 8-6-4-2 with "X" in center
- Printable 8-6-4-2 with "diamond" in center
- Printable 8-6-4-2 with "square" in center
- Master Target 8-6-4-2 file in libreoffice file format
The following observations were made:
- Thanks go to "Janet" who provided the a sheet of targets while I was bore sighting in West Texas.
- If color printing is available the "target cirlce" areas can be altered from the current black/whits.
- Modifying the Master Target file to incorporate different "center-images" is realatively.
- The "X" version worked extremely well when using a laser bore sighting via the barrel for dry fire scope setup.
- The target worked well for bore sighting a Ruger MK77 .243Win on local indoor ranges 50/100 yrd.
- The "X" target has been used at a local indoor pistol range at 7/10 yrds.
The "raw" LibreOffice Draw Opensource graphic is available for download and "changes to suit".
