Hey, I know a few people who shot in that match. Maybe even some on this forum... ;)

You mean this guy?

The 2010 F-TR National Champion is Lane (Ahhnother8) Buxton of California. Lane cleaned up with both high score and high x-count at 1,302 42x.

I've been learning to do precision tactical rifle and curious about the gods of F-Class, and look what I blunder into here.

Great reading about your exploits.

one anecdote surreptitiously omitted was his 4th place finish in '06 with his iron sighted Palma rifle on the smaller F-class targets

that's hard core

That's nuts. I can barely see small targets at 200 yards through a scope. Bastids.
