100 with 7 X's in the 1st string of 200 yard rapid fire sitting. My personal best.

ocab, you only shoot iron sights right? what is considered rapid fire in comp? 1 per sec? How are you weathering the IFG closure I know you were regular, or more than just a regular, I can't remember ever going there and not seeing you there putting lead down range. By the way, congrats on the PB and the great shooting.

very nice indeed, beats my personal best by one X, from 5 years ago at Chabot :TFH:

I've been mentally using Robert Taylor's mantra for rapids now:

"sight alignment, sight picture, squeeze the trigger..." before and after every shot, works damn well

second string results? ;)

200 yds with open sites on an AR? I can hit 10 out of 10 at 100 with a 3x9x42 scope. With open I'm in the 9 ring at 100. Did you file the front site to a point or what? Great Shooting!

Yes, iron sights. 200 yard rapid fire sitting is 10 rounds in 60 seconds (2 rounds, mag change, 8 rounds). 300 yard rapid fire prone is 10 rounds in 70 seconds.

I finally joined WEGC a few weeks ago. Between that the time IFG shut down and I joined WEGC, I pretty much tried go to WEGC as a guest of my friends who are members the few times I could go and just did a lot of dry firing at home.

second string results? ;)

99-1x. :(

My group was a 1/2-1MOA low. 6 o'clock in the 10-ring with 1 breaking out into the 9.

200 yds with open sites on an AR? I can hit 10 out of 10 at 100 with a 3x9x42 scope. With open I'm in the 9 ring at 100. Did you file the front site to a point or what? Great Shooting!

Yes, High Power is shot with metallic sights only. Nothing special with sight. Just a National Match tapered front sight post (.052" width).
