Re: NRA casification cards

I asked NRA’s Competitions if they received my scores for June matches as they are not on the new Portal system.
Reply was I am currently at Nationals Atterbury and won’t get to recording June scores till September 3.
This is really working good.At least it’s free this year.

Re: Adventures in Low recoil 6.5 TCU ram loads

Mark,thank you for your work and useful information.
Thank you also for allowing me to shoot your rifle.I was very impressed with low recoil and accuracy.
I can attest to ram knockdown as I hit one about 3” up in the belly above ding dong on a new ram and it easily went down.
Good enough for me.

Re: Any rule changes ?

DavidABQ,please stop with the false news of Ridgway ( spelled with no e),that it is their or NRA intent to have Nationals there on a permanent basis.Ridgway is perfectly content with the alternating format.

50 feet outside where it’s being made in Warren,Pa is the highest $2.99(But it’s fresher)

Re: target repair

If your Smallbore targets are the cast ones of old( the ones that have the casting spru on the back) You may find it difficult to weld that would last any length of time.Usually guarantee on cast is 50/50, 50 feet,50 seconds.

Re: Ridgway Super Shoot

Went to the Ridgway Rifle Club yesterday.There is a lot going on there.
Forms were installed for concrete on firing line at HP range,that should be complete this week.The SB Range is under construction for concrete also.Things are looking good there.
