"Batman"

Quick run down of how "Batman" (The name my wife gave this SP) did this week at the Sundance LR Handgun Comp.
We were fortunate to take first in all three distances: 500, 750 and 1,000 yards.
This is in the Light Pistol division.
We had some crazy winds this week
My best 5-shot groups at distance were:
500 yards: 2.445"
750 yards: 4" and change (can't remember now-I'm TIRED).
1000 yards: 7.5"
These are not amazing groups, but considering the wind we had, I am very pleased. On Thursday my full value correction for wind was over 20 mph and the wind at the bench was 9-13 mph...It was really blowing hard closer to the target
I decided to spot for myself for all of 500 and all of the 1000 yard groups.
Bob Baker (Freedom Arms) spotted for me at the 750 yard distances.
Batman tracks so good, that I could spot my own shots!

Eric Wallace (Nawakwa Accuracy) builds amazingly accurate SP's

Re: New LR Bench Rig

I hope you can come to Sundance and shoot with us. We would love to have you.

We also did a 10-shot group at a 1000 yards in the relay because of impending weather and Batman had a 11.25" group and my heavy pistol (7WSM) had a 8" group for 10 shots.

Re: New LR Bench Rig

I have had a number of people ask me this last week about the stock construction.
Two machined down aluminum pillars, foam, and carbon fiber.
Not sure what type of foam.
