Just thought I would post Rich Mertz's pistol shoot results, at least one of them.
I hope you don't mind Ernie but here is your SP post.
"Erik (15 years old) shot a 5-shot group at 1,000 yards that measured 8 3/8" with 4 of the shots measuring under 3 inches
Erik was using my McMillan BR rear-grip stocked XP-100, chambered in 6.5-284/Brux barrel/chamber, brake, and bedding work done by Jim See of Center Shot Rifles."
And here one of our sponsors did the gunsmithing.

It seems the youngsters had their way at the match this year.

Re: Like Father Like Son

I am really proud of my son!!!
He also had 5-shot with a 6" group at 750 yards with the same rig.
This specialty pistol was put together to specifically be competitive against rifles at 1,000 yard rifle matches and for LR pd'ing and goofing on steel.
Scope is the new VX-3 Leupold 8.5-25 (dot reticle)-Erik really like the target dot! 20 MOA Near Manufacturing pic rail.
He is shooting off of a SEB Coaxial Rest, Lapua brass, Hydrid 100V, Fed match primers and 140 A-Max's. Trigger is a Jewel, set right at 2 ounces, maybe 2.5.
