      Well after having to miss because of a rain out then a birthday party I finally got to check shooting in an F class match off my Bucket list Saturday! My day started with pit duty which didn’t go to smooth I can tell there is a art to knowing when a bullet hits “your target “ then finding that hit I was a little scared to pull until I found the hit. Thanks to my co pit workers Doug, Surrell and Kenneth for bailing me out. I rate my pit duty as a “D” would have been an F- if not my 1st. time.
      Now for the next challenge shooting prone @ 600 yards. For the 1st. time. 1st. sighter was little high and right producing what would be my only 8 of the day. I came down 1 click and left 1 click which produce a 9 for my next shot my 3rd. shot without making any more changes produce a 10. I decided to stay with those setting and see how it played out. 1st. 5 shots for score 10,10,X,10,X which provide a little over confidence and lack of concentration which resulted in 3 9’s a 10 and another 9 1st. 10 shots 96 with 2 X. Which I was real happy with. The second string of ten I did a little experimenting with dealing with mirage and wind which didn’t go so well and produced what would be my worst 10 shot string of the day 94 and 1 X putting my 1st. relay @ 190 and 3 X.
      Relay 2: I decide to go back to my original game plan and not over think the conditions and go with the flow. Which produced a 194 with 7 X (big smile on my face)?
      3rd. relay: after getting home and reviewing my score card I found a mistake on the 1st. ten shots I had it @ 98 with 2x but that should have been 97 with 2x I felt really bad about this even though it would not change the outcome. So final relay 194 5X (not 195 5X). For a 578 15X happy camper
      My goals for the match
      Have fun check
      No 8’s for score check
      Above 560 check
      Learn something check
      and I now have a Reese Bottom button and Tee shirt !!!!

      It was a fun hot day Richard and you shot well. Next you should try the 1000 yard F-Class at Bar 3, it’s a hole new level and so much fun. We might be able to talk Mr. Wynne in to letting us shoot a 1000 at Reese Bottom just for fun. I did got all my ammo loaded back and noticed some pressure signs on my brass I may have let some cook in the chamber a little to long while waiting on the wind to die down a couple shots.
