    hummmm...that's not that far from here

    I have never attempted my 7 mm br at those distances, not much for a scope on it.

    I would be interested. New to all of this but I think it would be a fun challenge.

    It is a lot of fun.
    Some specific rules will be available by next week for sure, but the production class allows barrels up to 15 inches long (brake does NOT count toward barrel length) and the weight will be either no more than 6.5 or 7 pounds.
    Ulimited has a max 16 pound weight and barrel can be up tp 18 inches long. Again, a muzzle brake does not count toward barrel length.

    For both classes any type of rest can be used.

    Different than last year where only one 5-shot group was made at each distance, we will shoot at all three distances each day.

    Not shooting for score, only for group.
    A 7mm BR could be used, but I recommend something more to be competitive.

    What do you recommend? For Handguns that would work for something like all I have is Thompson Centers. I dont know if that would be the right handgun but it is what I have and it is a place to start. I have shot mine out to 300 yards. I have a new 600 yard range I can now work with so I will have to practice. Like I said I am new to this but I am very interested. Maybe the best thing to do is bring what I have and learn from there.
