Ditto. Relax and have some fun.

Watch your wind. There should be some wind flags out there. Try to time your shots so you are always using the same wind if it's gusting a little.

If it changes significantly be sure and add/subtract as needed for your windage correction.

Again, relax and have fun it's not like your dinner depends on how you shoot!

Where's Mackay?

Zero your rifle for 300 yards before you go.

Check your zero at the shoot.

Don't worry about winning. Keep aware of what others are doing. Enjoy. Have fun.

Oh, and hold the exact amount into the wind with each shot.
