Future H.A.T B.C. Test shoot

Noel,

Plan on a three day shooting event with a fourth day set aside for a rain makeup.

--Day one will be for performing mundane tasks (ie signing release forms, range briefs, zeroing the guests firearms and last but not least to exhibit the shooters proficiency on the 600 yard range prior to being cleared to shoot at the longer ranges).

--Day two will be for shooting drops (specifically the HATS, Sierra, Bergers and Noel's bullets) only. We will shoot these drops commencing at 30 minutes prior to sunrise and until conditions appear that will prevent "sanitized" shooting conditions.

Note: Days, weeks, months or even years down the road, we do not want any possible excuses based on range conditions.

I will be shooting the 85-lb gun free recoil without any shooter input except for touching the trigger. All aiming points will be verified by witnesses when shooters are shooting free recoil and if they are shooting shoulder-fired method, we will use an inclinometer placed next to their guns to verify that they are not "fudging" their holds. All judgments will be that of the range officer as outlined, signed and agreed to by all parties on day one.

--Day three will be set aside for the instrumental testing.

--Day four will only be necessary if one of the above days is a rain out.

We are going to keep it as simple and safe as possible. The guests need to understand that they are on private property and will be behind locked gates. They must be under escort at all times and they must obey all directions of the club representatives.

These are fairly straight forward and are within the types of rules most legitimate clubs require of their members.

Almost forgot, at the end of each day we will have an outbrief that reviews the days events and formulates the internet report that will be filed each and every day with the highlights of the events of that specific day. On the last day the outbrief will include the review of the entire event and the final report that will be place on all shooting forums that would be interested.

Finally, we will not file an official report on LRH due to its' limited access.

That about sums it up.

James

I too am curious why this event would be announced here and the results not posted? What do you mean by limited access and why does it matter? I would think you would want everyone to know the results based on your prior confindence in the performance of your bullets?

And the next question is... ummmm.... I thought James was Lightvarmint???

The plot thickens.....

James,

Jeff VanNeil will be organizing this event, and will undoubtedly second many of the common sense suggestions.

We are working at ranges past 2,000 meters however, and some of the testing conditions you would like to see will not be practical once drops have been established at the club range. I will call Jeff so that he can come on to clarify this, and other related issues.

As far as data publication, I too am somewhat confused at what you mean by "limited access" in reference to LRH forum.

Best,
Noel
