Re: Shooting BETTER AT LONG RANGE

I like to find bones from time to time and if you have that "many" laying around your area, someday possibly I could make an inspection of such.
With that many bones you speak of, it must be "easy" to shoot a decent group out there and not need too much luck?

We need luck at Williamsport though. Shooting over water and wind coming across the range in 3 different directions at one time causes some real problems to the shooters.

In my last post concerning the comment I make about the blind dog---- I was refering to me when "I" get lucky and shoot a decent group at Williamsport is what I say about my own group.

In reality though, there are VERY few bones laying around Williamsport to give out. You should come and give it a try sometime. We would like to have you and I will dare you to do so this summer if you have the time. Bob McCoy visted us from time to time before he passed away.

I will post the match dates after the 19th of this month which is after our Winter Board meeting.

It is a VERY difficult range to shoot at.

Sadly we have no real good wind dopers there because nobody has really figured the range out since it opened in 1967. just when you think you have it figured out, your target comes back with holes all over the place. Most of which was wind changes that were not seen or felt.

Even the Army team that came several years ago said they would not come back. They said they couldn't figure the range out. They camped there for the weekend. Even the Navy Seal team doesnt come anymore. 17" 10 shot groups were their best.

We have a sighter period of 6 mins where you can shoot an unlimited amount of spotters and the pit crew will spot each shot. At the end of the 6 min period there is a cease fire and then you start into your record string of ten shots. You have 10 mins to do this and none of the match rounds are spotted.

Come on over and play with us this summer.
