This month our 2nd Precision Rifle Match was held on the Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend. We would have expected a smaller turnout but it was quite the opposite with 23 shooters up from 14 last month. The weather was near perfect and everyone was primed and ready for a great competition. We had 3 new participants that have never shot a competition of this sort but they are rookies no longer.
The new concrete on the Range 9 platform allowed us to spread out a bit which was necessary with a group of this size plus spectators. The target array was spread out from 100 to 665 yards with a variety on targets including a Dueling Tree and Know Your Limitations stage on steel. There were 50 shots with an available 5 bonus points so 55 possible points.
Next month’s match will be on the 4th Saturday as usual June 25th.
