    Re: Shawn Carlock wins the USPSA Precision Rifle Nationals.

    Thanks guys. Some notes from the competition:

    Long range stage - due to the backgrounds to give target definition spotting your miss was impossible and everyone knew this going in. Most misses were due to windage, low hits you could here contacting the splash plate and high hits over 1' you could see. Alot of people could not read the wind or gusts that were full value 5-12 mph. Alot of people used the walkin method and dialed no wind held to the right and started moving over a plate windage until they hit it. For most this resulted in shooting at least 2 or 3 shots for every hit. Half of the field zeroed this course by not being able to hit more than 6 paltes of the 9 in under 300 seconds. I dialed in for the average wind (less the gusts) and fired 2 extra rounds for misses that were fired in a gust these missed shots I just held off for and shot before the wind changed. For multiple distances most dialed in for each distance. I picked a common zero 300 yards allowed me to hold dead on the most targets from the closest to mid range and used the NPR2 reticule to hold over for the rest quickly. Some of the misses came from people not getting into a good shooting position, the positions were difficult but some techniques/positions were better than others. I noticed several people coming completly out of position to run the bolt and waste time getting back into position to shoot again. 260 Rem, 243's w vld bullets, and 308 Win were the majaoriy of the calibers, a couplke of 223 Rem's and a 22-250 rounded out the field. There are alot of things to bring from this kind of competition back the the field, performance under preasure, getting equipment issues dialed in, learning what postions work and don't, learning how to setup to shoot multiple distances accurately and quickly, all of these things are bonus skills for the long range hunting rifleman. It goes without saying (you would think) that these are required skills for the tactical marksman.
