New 1000 yard F-class Record?

Well here he goes again. Charles Ballard competing in the NSSC Long Range Championship on 06/07/2008 has quite possibly set the new 1000 yard 20 shot F-Class Open record with a 200-13X. This record was set in an amazing 103F temperature, really not a normal temperature in June for NC. Just 2 weeks ago he became the new North Carolina F-Class champion. Yes his rifle shoots well however, Charles as a shooter has the burning desire to do well and be the best. Also, He is willing to put forth the time & effort to do it. All of us that shoot with him recognize this. Congratulations Charles!

Congrats to the shooter that is an amazing score at 1K.

In fact that beats my 600 yard personal best. What was he shooting? I know some hate equipment lists for f-class, but I am always interested.

Since I have never participated in any of these events, please explain to me the scoring methodology so I can fully appreciate this accomplishment.

I am completely amazed at the accuracy those of you who shoot targets at these distances achieve.

thanks.

In short, the f-class target is based on 1/2 moa increments. At 1K the x-ring measures 1/2 MOa and counts 10 points, the 10 ring measures 1 MOA or about 10 inches and also counts as 10 points. The sucessifly larger circles count as 9 8 and 7 points out to 5 points. The shooter shot 13 out of 20 shots into a 5 inch circle and the remaining 7 shots were outside the 5 inch x ring but hit inside the 10 inch ten ring. He didnt lose any points as none fell into the 9 8 or 7 point rings on the target.
