Re: ingredients for success

sure. I've shot 2 matches so far, and did not place last (my goal fo rstarting out) . I'm really not concerned about shooting short range groups with this rifle, using it to shoot the local long range matches, which are a torso and head target, from 200-1k, 50 shots in a match. At this point, I'm losing more points from screwups than accuracy issues. I

Its been about 18 months since I got the rifle,1600 rounds fired, mostly in matches. In this time I have learned a lot from fellow shooters. There are so many top notch shooters here, its been a great place to shoot and learn.

Yesterday it all came together and I was the over all match winner at our local high power monthly match.

Over forty shooters in several classes competed in the folsom special, pair firing at 300, 500, 600, & 800 yards, 2 convertible sighters and 10 for record at each line. We had vintage, ftr, f-open, high power and a new tactical class.

I scored 400-36x with favorable conditions. It was a good day to rack up a high score, with light head winds which is uncommon for sac valley.,

Congratulations on the win! The rifle turned out well. My next project is going to be nearly identical. Jesse.
