I retired a few years ago and now have the time to devote to this life long passion I have had for long range shooting. I plan to get involved soon with fellow shooters and really appreciate the info provided by all of you. Thanks

The longest drive was always to Camp Perry but well worth the effort. If you've never been to Camp Perry you own it to yourself to go.

I think that's the biggest thing is the distance. I wouldn't mind driving for competitions but I've got too much on my plate to drive to Butte to practice every week. Just going to have to get the state to fund a new range around here I guess!

Re: Do You Shoot Rifle Competition?

I shoot f-class at quantico with my .308 and am also looking to try tactical matchss to improve firing under stress and from unconventional positions. May start shooting 3 gun too just for kicks, and gives me an excuse to build an AR.

I feel f-class is good for gathering Real world drift and drop data and can see how different temperature and such affects your dope. Not to mention it's just plain fun.

I don't know what part of the state you are in but accross the river to the West there are 600yd F-class matches at Louisville. If you mouse over the 600yd Prone match dates there will be contact info pop up, give Gene a call, I am sure he will also know of any Iowa F-class matches.

Eastern Nebraska Gun Club Calendar of Events

Also this weekend and every month during the summer there is an IBS Benchrest match at Pella, IA. They also have a factory class.


Contact Gordy Gritters (contact info in link) for more information.
