I'm really curious about the target depicted below. I've seen pictures of it a long time ago in some muzzle loading articles but don't know the history behind it and why this target was chosen to use for competition. I cannot find anything on the glorious thing we call the internet. I was thinking about using it for sighting in a flintlock rifle I have with a brass front sight. I'm having problems with the sight on my rifle blending in with the white paper and getting it centered under the black bull. I was thinking about printing some of these to use for sighting the rifle in by placing the front sight underneath the white "V" so that the black contrasts with the brass blade. I decided to buy some 1/4 silhouette targets instead, with a bright orange stick-on spot in the middle so the brass blade is visible against the black. Nevertheless, can anyone provide any history behind this type of target? Here's a video of Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen from the Disney "Davey Crockett" television series.
