Re: My Girlfriends first deer

Thanks for the reply Joel

Come to one match and you will be hooked like a big carp.
I understand the feeling at Williamsport.
The way the Ridgeway club bagan their matches was------4 officers went to Williamsport for a match. None of the 4 won their relays hence they shot their 10 rounds for match plus a few sighters and then all 4 went home.
They said, there has to be more to a match then driveing this far and only shooting 10 shots for record. they came up with a 40 round for record match plus sighters and it is catching on big time.
I have been shooting with Kevin Cram, John Mason and Shane Walton plus there children and having a ball. Johns friend just broke the record at the last match of the year by downing 36 out of 40 animals. That record will hold for awhie as it's damn hard to knock down 15 or 20 of the steel animals.
They take a break after two relays have been fired for lunch. A caterer comes in and you can get all you want at a price of $6.00 or $7.00.
Starts at 10AM and lasts till about 3:30pm
I'll get more details for 2013 but they usually have matches the first Sunday of every month starting in April and lasting till Oct.

Boyd would love to buy the ice cream again.

Have to admit though, the last year we shot for ice cream I bought alot of them. I think Boyd went into the Hall Of Fame that year.

Joel/Boyd,

If you guys are interested in shooting it your welcome to stay with us at the cabin before the shoot so you don't have to drive so far the day of the shoot.

It's about 40 min drive from our cabin to the range.

Re: My Girlfriends first deer

Okay, you guys peaked my interest.. I checked out the rules of the Varmint Benchrest Silhouette matches and wondering what caliber and configuration most guys are shooting in the 12lb and under class.
Without knowing how thick the steel is, are the 6mm's able to knock over the yote at 1K?

With a good hit yes.

Some BR and PPC's are being used.

Also some 6x47 lapuas being used.

I've hit yotes low and barely knocked off with my dakota lol
