The National Matches are just around the corner! I go to Delaware fairly frequently in the summer, for surf fishing, but this weekend I left the Rod at home and brought my service rifle down for an NRA 800 agg.
The weather was hot and the air thick with humidity. We ran two relays and scored in the pits. Which can be a bit tricky but the match runs fast.
I started out strong shooting “fast and angry” off-hand. Posting a 186.
I’ve been working on sitting and it seems to be paying off as I posted a nice pair of 99s. I seem to have a habit of pulling one low right when I forget to breathe.
Back to 300 I dropped 3 points in rapid prone I was happy with my groups. I Made a windage change between strings but couldn’t keep all 10 in the 10 ring in the second string.
Back at 600 I came close to my personal best and posted a pair of 96s for a 192!
The 8:00 8 was a sighter the 12:00 eight was pulse, heat, and fatigue late in the second string.
I managed to post a nice score on the high-end of Master keeping my streak going!
Thanks to some advice from others at York a few matches back I made some changes to my sling and now pull it almost all the way into my armpit. This has really been working nice as the sling doesn’t fall down my arm mid string and stays nice and tight.
