Default URSA Schedule for Q2 2017 (April - June)

Here's the URSA schedules for Q2:

NorCal - Apr 9 (2nd Sunday), May 21 (3rd Sunday), and Jun 18 (3rd Sunday) - the 3rd Sunday in April is Easter.

SoCal - Apr 23 (4th Sunday - regular shoot + URSA 3000 Yard Challenge), May 21 (3rd Sunday), and Jun 18 (3rd Sunday).

NOTE: With both our regular monthly SoCal shoot and the 3K in April, the drill for the regular shoot will change to one (1) 5-shot practice and one (1) 10-shot qualification.

Tips (from the Facilitator):

(1) With all the variables at 2000 and beyond - and no cold bore requirement - suggest shooters (especially those shooting "factory" or otherwise "unknown" ammo) shoot three (3) shots holding dead on target center BEFORE making any sight adjustment. Then adjust your scope based on the center of the just shot "group". [This substantially assumes the shooter can spot their own hits - which is very frequently the case when shooting at 2000 and beyond.]
(2) Cover your ammo very well (heavy towel, doubled or tripled up) to avoid getting your ammo hot while sitting in direct sunlight. Leaving it exposed to the sunlight in down time and while others are shooting can increase the ammo temp significantly and totally mess up the reliability of your "known" load.
