Kicking Off The Season at York Riflemen

Took at trip out to York, PA for their spring match. This was my third match at York riflemen my fifth with full pits including Camp Perry last year. If feel much more confident in the pit than I had the last time I was there. This match at four full relays I shot in relay one and then pulled for the rest of the match. It was in the high 60s, sunny and calm the perfect day for shooting. Everything move very smoothly they run a great match.

I found my “scoring cheat sheet” which is just a print out of the scoring indicator positions(below) taped to my clipboard to be very handy is match as I couldn’t read the numbers by the indicator with my scope. I would strongly recommend anyone who’s memory is as poor as mine to print this out and keep it handy.


As far as the match itself I made the mistake of passing on my last 2 sighters and it turned out my elevation wasn’t nearly where it should and I struggled to hold over to compensate. I should have known better. Per normal I did fairly well in rapid prone, after I brought the rear sight up. I’m going to spend some extra time practicing this weekend.

Here are some pictures from the match.
