    Default 1,000 yd BR match at Thunder Valley Precision

    Pretty happy with my 1,000 benchrest competition yesterday. Scored highest score (49) and smallest five shot group (7.215 inches). I even outplaced my instructor in that first match. That's a real tribute to him as my instructor.

    Second match I shot a score of 44 and an 11 inch group. Wind was gusting up and down more during the second match than the first.

    Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor, factory trigger, SilencerCo Omega suppressor, Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27x56mm, Atlas bipod, MagPul stock because the factory stock snags too many beard hairs.

    Lapua brass, BR4 small primers, H4350, Hornaday 140gr ELD-M, 2800 FPS, 3.1 Standard Deviation.

    Next 1,000 yd BR match at Thunder Valley Precision will be June 15th.

    That's incredible shooting. Did you get an entry ticket for our 1,600-yard shoot this September near Pittsburgh?
