I heard we had some members with some pretty respectable finishes. I've not found them yet.

Is there a sheet that tells what equipment was being used and where the shooters were from... Also what the conditions were ? Temp and average wind?

Hot and windy is right!

Yesterday afternoon it was 98 F and we were holding wind for 18-25 mph.

Today it was 93F and we were holding wind for 8-15 mph.

As shooters get better, they keep making targets smaller. Stupid tiny targets this year.

And second focal plane so the crosshairs didn't cover the small target at higher magnification. peep

I'm on the list. I had a mental implosion on Saturday. I had 2 stages where my firing pin was not working, and would pull the trigger and "click". It took 3 stages to get it working right and figure out the problem. Sunday I shot pretty good. But you can not make up a 2 day match in one day, though. Wind was blowing, as well as vertical lift. The hills were causing some vertical movement at several locations. I need to work on the loop hole shot. I should have gotten those points, as I have shot it in the past and it work. The loop hole shot is a cut in a ply wood of about 3/4". You line up behind this ply wood and you have to shoot through the 3/4" cut and hit a 700 yard target. If you do the math correct, you should be able to get the bullet to go through it, and make your hits. It was a great match with a lot of small targets at some long ranges. I did make a hit on the far one at 1294 yards, though!
