Thanks to Chris Matthews and Bob Cauterucio for this result. Ok, I know you guys do this stuff pretty regularly, and I am not gonna BS everyone and say I do this all the time, but I pulled it off once and boy it sure was sweet so I just had to share. By way of fair disclosure, I shot over 30 rounds at clays on the 1,000 yard berm and so had the advantage of really studying the effect of the wind and what was going on with my shots which was my goal for the day. Once I felt like I had a vague clue, and only a very vague clue, I told myself I was going for the best I could do on paper. Group 1 and 2 were nothing special for this crowd. I cleaned and then fired these as the last of the day. I settled down, really concentrated on my position alignment, hold, trigger squeeze, and trying to feel the wind, and then gave it the best I had. Group 3 is a 5 shot group which has
"3" over each shot as it was the third group of my paper tries at the end of the day. The cold, clean bore shot is down by the 8 on the tape and marked with a "3 CCBS" and then the next four shots in a row have "3" over them for group 3. Group 4 was a three shot group shot on the heels of Group 3. After I saw these it was time to call it a day and not spoil my success. Don't know about how it will go next time (actually I do and it probably will stink), but it sure is nice when things fall just right every now and again.
