Re: Rifle Golf in Idaho Falls Interested?


A brief survey of dedicated LRH/ELR shooters frown on events where time constraints result in hot barrels. Of the 13 LRH shooters today the really dedicated ones, including myself, wouldn't for for something like 20 shots in 20 minutes.

Justa thought...

Spirit Ridge is good as there is plenty of time between the, if I remember correctly, 3 stations with something like 6 shots at each station (12 shots if all first shots are missed). With several shooters at each station barrels have plenty of time to cool.

Keep in mind that LRH is all about the cold bore shot reaching its intended mark.

Keep us posted!

I also learned, today, that hanging steel on belting is much better than hanging gongs on chains.

The hard steel, AR-500 ??? is the way to go. Nothing today from 270 WinMag, 338 RUM and 375 Allen Mag hurt them. They don't flop around as with chains either. Just do a little dance.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

My sportsman's challenge match was 14 shots in 20 minutes and is revamping into 7 shots in like 15 minutes and. Then later in the day the other 7 shots. That will also help with making the weather variables fair so no one person gets to shoot all their targets in the calm of the morning and others get the winds and all
