Talked with one of the shooters who has shot there all three years.
Half of the shooters in attendance were beating there bolts open do to stiff loads.

Mitch Fitzpatrick's spotters didn't know it was time to shoot so he had to rush his shots downrange to meet the 9 minute rule.

Everyone got one shot at a 1600 yard gong before they went hot and only four shooters hit it.
John Buhay put up $1000 to any shooter hitting the almost two miles target and winning the match. Kelly McMillan matched that offer so the winner walked off with $2000.

The wind made you or broke you.
Barrels without enough twist cost a bunch of shooters off guard.
If you don't have enough twist you will get all kinds of vertical stringing as each bullet will have a different BC number.
You need a oehler 88 or Oehler 42 to see this.
I will contact Focus to see if a LabRadar will do this.
