Subject: December High Power Rifle "Fun Match" - Saturday 12/18

Greetings;

The next monthly High Power Rifle Fun Match is scheduled for Saturday, December 18 at Fairfax Rod and Gun Club. The match bulletin is attached.

Be advised that beginning with this match and forever after we will be using scoring system B - see below and the attachment for an example of scoring system B.

We experienced some issues at our last match with very slow pit service. Slow pit service will often break the concentration of the competitor on the firing line as well as delaying the match. If you are a new shooter and have never worked in the pits or if you have worked in the pits and you feel that you would benefit from some instruction and guidance, please arrive at the range by 0800 for a brief pit duty orientation.

Match registration begins at 8:15, squadding at 8:30, pits seal at 8:45, first shot at 9:00. Entry fee is $10, exact change is appreciated. Bring a stapler for hanging targets.

See you on the firing line,
Alan Willard

This was the best I could do today.

16° at the start of the match.
After the first shot, I don't think I actually felt the trigger break for the rest of the match.

Thought I had dope for this ammo.
Recorded the dope when it was around 50°.

Had to crank-on an extra 2.5 MOA over what I thought was the right dope.
First shot for record offhand is a 10.
Always a bad omen.
All-over out the bottom for the next ten shots or so.
After hosing quite a few shots, I finally convinced myself it really WAS the sight adjustment that was causing all those low shots. Second offhand string was quite acceptable by my standards and ability.

Once I got the elevation issue resolved, and considering conditions, I'm pretty satisfied.

Hope to see more of you at the January match.
