My 457's 2nd-ever ARA Factory club match
« on: July 20, 2022, 03:40:30 PM »
At Boerne Shooting Club (est. 1864) last Wednesday, participating in only my second-ever Factory event, I surprised myself with a single target high score of 2450-0X, a personal best, and placed second among twelve shooters. Rifle: 457 VPT MTR, scope: Sightron SIII, Protektor basic rests front (wide owl ear on wishbone) and rear (bunny ear soft bottom), ammo: SK Match Flat Nose.
NOTE: A perfect score would be 2500-25X; an X score must completely obliterate the center 'dot', simply touching it scores a 100. Now I need to work on those Xs!

Really NICE!!   Congratulations
If I had known how much better being retired is than working I would have done it FIRST.
