Guess there are flyers in the high-dollar Match50 ammo too. Sandwiched a "9" in the middle of 6 "X's"; 4 before & 2 after. Not even a good "9" either - smack in the middle of the "8" ring at 10 o'clock, just touching the "9". Must have been ammo flyer; surely couldn't have been me!!!

The brass did not stop there, some went 3 benches past Jed. I was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, I put the hood up and stood between them and let the brass bounce off my back so Jed could finish shooting!

[Jim flew 35 missions over Germany & Romainia during WWII as nose gunner and bomdarer in a B-17. As a young man he had 20/5 vision. If the pilot with normal vision could see a German fighter plane at 5000 yards, Jim would see it at 20,000 yards. Jim got a new pair of glasses last week. He has 20/10 vison at the age of 85: But he needs tthe glasses. He only got 3 letters right on the 20/5 line! I always have Jim socre my targets. I use to kid him about the probability of him bombing the stuffings out of the old Anschutz factory.]

246-6x Joe Haller. MIssion Texas & Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan
CZ-452 American. BSA Plarinum 6-24X. Eley Yellow Box
Glass bedded. 7 oz. trigger. Anschutz Magnitic tuner. This rifle does not like Wolf Match Target or Wolf Match Extra. I bought that Anschutz magneitc toner three years ago and never could make it work. Last week I tried something different. With Eley Yellow Box and the back of the tuner about 1/8" form the forend tip I got some good groups. So shot my 4th target with Yellow Box. First haflways decent target I have had in more than a year. Now: Should I reglass the bedding? I don't know. I did get a 249-3x with it a couple of years ago
[This year we have 25 members in our Mission, Texas rimfire club. Some of them did not turn in a record target for January. All of us live in the Bentsen Grove Resort here on Mission, for the winter.

223-4x Eric Brooks Oneonta, New York (Brookie)
CZ 452 Special Weaver V9 @ 9x. Federal 510 Lighting (BAB)
Would have been a respectable score at 50 yards but at 25? Something is not
right. It was a balmy 30 degrees so it wasn't shivering...
PLINKER Class: 25 yards - Score Range: 200-219
217-0x Clint Baer. Mission TX & Rehoboth, Mass. (Age 84)
Marlin M-60. Bushnell 4-12X. Eley Trainer.
[Clint is a WWII Veteran: One of those guys who saved the world and preserved our freedoms. Clint brought me his January target last Monday evening. He told me he had to go in for a stress test in the morning. He had some pressure in his chest but no pain. Three days later his wife, sent me an e-mail message saying "Clint flunked the test", and had a quadruple bypass. He is home now and feeling well, but tired.

214-1x Paul Johnson. Tuscaloosa, Alabama (Knitepoet)
AMT Lightning. Bushnell [email protected] Rem Target 6122 (BAB)
Ammo was weight sorted. Butler Creek Carbon Fiber Barrel. Fajen Thumbhole Stock. Weather, cloudy, 62 with GUSTY!!! winds (25mph gusts). Weight sorted the ammo and picked up 12 points over Ely EPS and 27points over the same ammo unsorted. (I guess weight sorting DOES work)

207-2x Dan Denhart, San Diego, California
Browning T-Bolt rifle, Leupold 12x scope, Winchester T-Target.
Scope won't go to 25 yards clearly. Light barrel of rifle got hot.

204-2 x Earl Sanchez. Plant City, Florida

First time shooter.

202-2x Paul Johnson. Tuscaloosa, Alabama (Knitepoet)

196-1x Steve Wilburn. Madill, Oklahoma (Fozzy Bear)
Mossberg 46b-b. Tasco 3-9x40. Winchester Supreme.
That ammo is HIGH !! But, is the best out of the 10 brands I tried. I use a "Roper Products" front bag and an old suede leather bag in the rear.
The tempature was about 38 degrees with a slight wind from 9:00. This is my first attempt. I think I'll get better as the tempature warms up.

Pssssst, hey Joe.

..appears you have left out the boy, (Time). He is even less tolerant than I am about being mis-quoted, falsely accused, or, more importantly, inadvertantly omitted from the Email standings. :D He should be in there for a tie at 3rd place. Just fix it real quick and I promise not to tell him. ;) GG

p.s. I just went back lookin at scores again. Obviously JL is the man of the hour, awesome shooing Jerry!

Then I noticed that our big time guy Forester shot a 250-9x with a T-6. Wow.

Correction Made . . .

Gee Gordon: Thanks for telling me and not Time. Hope I made the correction in "time".

What I am doing is cut/paste each score/equipment field from the DB to the Word Processor. The human (haller) error has a chance to slip in.

That is a weak link in the posting process. I read of a way to pull all of the data out of the database and stuff it into a word processor with a procedure, with a click of the mouse: But: I could not make the thing work.

I am going to send an e-mail message to Parnorama (they have good support) and see if they can solve the problem for me. I have been building and using databases since 1985, but I am no database expert. Far from it.

I'll let ya know if and when I build a procedure that will eliminate the "haller error".

See Ron,

JL aka HB

JL is the man of the month, period. Extra good shooting, JL. It's really tough getting such a good X count. Everything has to be working: ammo, rifle, scope, and shooter, of course. Congratulations.

JL way to go with that click clack :D
FYI, I don't expect to see my name as the very last one on the list this month ;)
