    My youngest son and I shot in a "match-stick" match yesterday. He used an H&R M5200

    and I used an old Remington 513T with a Bushnell 3200 10X40 scope.

    The match was shot first thing in the morning and it was a bit cold (low 30's) for these parts. Winds were light and variable. Beause of the low temps, we had to get the rifles warmed up and rezeroed. The match was shot off a front sand bag rest with nothing other than your hand for rear support at 50 yards.

    Here is my warm up target for the match. Unfortunately, we turned in our official targets.

    There were some small bullseye targets above the match sticks, but I gave up trying to re-zero my rifle on them because of the relatively low power scope I was using (10X). Most guys were using 18 to 24 power scopes. I started using the match heads as an aiming point and finally got my rifle back on target. Best group was a 5 shot group fired at the #9 match head....around .39" ctc.

    I was using Federal "auto match" ammo.

    That's a nice old rifle.
    I can't wait to do that kind of thing with my kids. They are a little too young yet.
    I've already built my daughter's deer rifle, and she's not even 4!
    Cheers~

    You are getting a good start with your daughter, Tom.
