Alex County Rifle Shoot 06\'

Well we just finsihed up the annual Spring Alex County rifle shoot. Everything went pretty well. Me and BJ headed out around 6 this morning and after a brief encounter with the local law enforcement for driving WAY to fast we arrived at the range.

We had the best turn out yet with nearly 30 people shooting. Calibers varied from my 22-250 and BJ's 6-250 to 25-06's and a 300 Jarrett. We shot at 3" ballons at 100-250-400-and 500yds, we had 12 targets and 14 shots with 10minutes to shoot.

We set up the swaro spotter and Bj set up for his first relay, he did well but not great and he quickly realized that he may have let the nerves get to him. He was registerd for 2 heats in the first round so he had another chance.

I set up for my only heat since I only registered once. I had recently gotten a used Kimber to shoot and since I could only shoot a 55gr bullet I new the wind would play hell with me so I saw no need for 2 experinces of embarressment. I actually did pretty good in my heat and scoreda 370 out of i think 450 total, i was happy considering I was shooting a factory gun with virgin brass off a bipod against guys shooting full bore bench guns with heavy for caliber bullets.

Bj did substantially better on his second round but neither of us made it into the finals. The man who ended up winning was a local gunsmith who specializes in 22-243's. At this shoot there was probably 6-8 guys shooting 22-243's made by him.

After this was all over we had our annual 500yd egg shoot. Each shooter pays 5 bucks to enter and gets a guaranteed 2 shoots at a egg suspended at 500yds. BJ was up first and I spotted for him. He was a little disapointed in himself but he quickly remedied that!! His first shot was just a inch or so off the egg and after a quick adjustment there was yolk flying!! 2 other shooters killed the eggs and a shootoff insued. BJ quickly settled that with a first shot egg explosion, and I mean a EXPLOSION!!! WIth that he won the egg shot and made up his mind about whether or not his 6-250 would shoot!! Gratuitious Kirby praise here: Hell of a job again Kirby!!!

We played around with the big guns on the steel gongs out to 760yds after this and everyone was really impressed with the power of the Allen Mags again.

BJ has some video of the egg shoot, him hitting and me missing though so I am sure you all wont wanna see that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. Hopefully he will get that posted tommorrow and maybe we can get Gator and 6-06 to post their thoughts as well

To Rick, Darrin and Larry thanks for having all of us down again, look forward to the fall shoot.

Thanks
Steve

Re: Alex County Rifle Shoot 06\'

I am not sure of any legal implications here but I will just say that a buddy of mine got pulled over going just shy of 20mph over the speed limit, our situation was roughly similiar [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I was more conscerned with explaining the 6 rifles and 400rnds of ammo we had in the truck. Actually I was more concerned with coming up with a smart @$$ reply if he asked about the guns!!! BUt then I figured that might not be a good idea!!

The patrolmen was nice about the whole thing and I offered him a good price on a EO-TECH sight since I was wearing one of their shirts and he was interested in them.

Of course running from him is always a option but last time I checked Chevy put a governor in their trucks for 100mph, at least I was a little under that mark!!

Re: Alex County Rifle Shoot 06\'

It was a great time!! Thanks to Rick for putting on a great event. If any of you guys are close, you really ought to come down this fall. This event is quickly becoming one of my favorites!!

Also want to thank Kirby for building me a helluva rifle (review w/pics to come tonight). Anything that can hit an egg 2 out of 3 shots @ 500 yds is a keeper in my books!!

Re: Alex County Rifle Shoot 06\'

I think everyone had a good time at the shoot and we had some experienced shooters there as well (Apparently I wasn't one of them).
Here are a few pics that I took at the beginning of the event.
I should have taken more pictures and will at the next event if they let me attend.













If you happen to recognize anyone in the pictures - don't admit to it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I had a great time even though I can't shoot worth a crap.

That's Rick Reeves in the second pic from the bottom looking at his cows on the hill saying "I think he just shot one of my cows".
