Long time, no shoot but I'm back and starting to pull my benchrest rifles out for a bit of air! Working with some new BR shooters so, hopefully, they'll join in!

Cowan front rest. Protektor Bunny ear rear bag.
EXCUSES for not shooting well...just knocking the rust off!
Mostly cloudy, 88F, light winds.

Yes they do, Tom! Haven’t shot a rifle in competition since 2002. Eyes sure have changed along with sight picture, what once was seeing the scoring rings at fifty has changed to a blurry blob!
Will try to get more of the old time smallbore guys in our club out to dust off their rifles.

Cape Cod, MBSC, MBSC, 8/12/19

Cape Cod, MBSC, MBSC, 8/12/19

200-13x
David Lee Valdina
Martini 12/15, factory sights.
Wolf Match Extra.
Harris Bi-Pod & Caldwell rear bag.
77 degrees, sunny, 8-12mph.
50-3x, 50-5x, 50-2x & 50-3x = 200-13x

I also shot some 36 & 40 gr. CCI-Mini-Mags as I have been reading that the transition from supersonic to subsonic isn't really the problem it's been made out to be. See long thread here on RFC about shooting 50 rounds @ 200 yards. The 40 gr. grouped better than the 36 gr. The 40 gr. might be capable of shooting a 200 something x score. I had not changed dope on the sights and as expected, the groups were a bit higher on target, more so with the 36 gr. than with the 40 gr.

Still knocking the rust off...

199-7x (Unlimited) Bill Parkhurst. Sheffield, Alabama (AQBill)
Weihrauch HW 660 Match, Walther Rear & Anschütz Front, Federal UM22
Cowan front rest. Protektor Bunny ear rear bag.
EXCUSES Had to "box" the rear sight to find out it was dry and vertically unresponsive. This was the better of two targets. Low X count shows that I still have much work to do!
Sunny cloudy, 88F, light winds.
50-2x 50-2x 49-1x 50-2x
