Yea, good turn out. Didn't stay until the end, I shot a perfect 30 @ 100 25@ 300 & my 500 was a nice 3" group between both bulls,lol. My gun has to be shootin faster than 2600 from a 20" tube w 45g varget. Was 2" high @ 500

The man beside me said 3 bulks was a 30 ?? I had to go alone and after about 2hrs of looking at other targets, i watched a few custom guns shoot and came back home. They will post results, I do know last yrs winner scored a 90. But I do think head shots are worth more.

Yes, bullet hole in solid white in the head is 15, cut the line it's 9 points. Belly (larger bullseye) is 10 pts in white, but a 7 if you cut the line. Most guys (at least the one's that win) shoot the head at 100 & belly at 300 & 500. IIRC there were only 2 perfect scores after 300 yard stage but bothe guys fell to like 8th & 10th (ask me how I know)...

Congrats onm the egg & maybe I'm missing a name but I thought score were like this...

1-Ron P -91
2-???????? -90 (can't remeber his name but he was from Hawks Ridge & won shootoff 4 2nd)
3 -Jacob M -90
4-????????? -86 or 87
5-Chris B -85
5-Sam W -85
7-Blake M -84

Like I said I could have missed a name???? Do you remember what you shot? Hopefully they will post results soon. I know Chris & Sam tied for 5th with the 85 & Blake was 7th (or 6th score is the way Larry reports them). I might Have missed your name if you shot an 84 (don't remember someone tying him but could have, please feel free to fix it if I did). There was at least one 83 after the 84 too.

For those who have never been it's a really fun shoot & LOT harder than you might think. You can easily have the best rifle & not do well at all. With score only & no sighters, a few hundreths of an inch can be the diff between winning or loosing. Still it's a VERY well run shoot & a LOT of fun.
