WOW!! That is excellent shooting! Very impressive, at both 1,000 and 1,760!

I was curious about your butt plate on Eleanor, is it adjustable vertically? If so, who makes it?

I was also there for the 2008 IBS Nationals. In fact, that's when I shot the 3.806" group at the Mile with this same rifle. There was a severe storm go through that area last year, and it took the canopy right off the ground. Tom never got around to replacing it as there were some insurance problems...

The recoil pad system is only adjustable for length of pull. It's the standard McMillan system.

Re: Eleanor Defends Her Title in Mile Match

MOM~ They .408 case is a wonderful platform for a wildcat type cartridge. There are many custom rifle builders on this forum that can build such a rifle. Feel free to contact me if you would like more information on my build. 717.805.0940 EST.
Or PM me here with your contact information.

Some of the shooters had a difficult time getting all 5 shots on paper due to the unpleasant conditions we had.

My son also asked me why I didn't hit the center of the target

My last sighter shot was in close proximity to the center of the 17" sighter gong. From there, I made a small correction, then went on the record target. Between the time it took me to make that correction, and shoot the first record shot, the conditions changed slightly, which shifted my group to the left of center. Fortunately, the condition was somwhat constant for all five shots.

Joel,

Very fine shooting! It says a lot about ones abilities to repeat anytime and even more so under tough situations. I know the other participants were not amateurs. Thanks for sharing with us. God Bless
