Default Southwest ULR - Nov 2018 Match Results, Top Gun Vince Teach .338 Lapua



Sunday morning, was a day long range shooters dream about, visibility for miles, zero wind and optimal weather conditions making projectiles fly far and true. Over a mile away are 3 freshly painted 40x40 steel targets with redundant electronic hit indicators. As the sun rose over the beautiful and calm desert of the Southeast we drew for shooting order and 12 competitors began firing large caliber firearms in hopes of becoming the next Southwest ULR Top Gun.

Skip Remsen, shooting a 416 Barret, took an early and commanding lead scoring multiple hits on the first and farthest stage, just over 1.5 miles away. His dominate lead seemed unbeatable. Un-phased by the early point’s deficit Phillip Heintz, Kurt Stone, Tu Nguyen and Vince Teach banded together and made strong, come from behind run, racking up multiple impacts and eventually eclipsing Skip’s early lead. During the last and final stage the wind changed Phillip, Tu and Vince were able to quickly identify and adjust putting them on target and setting off the hit indicators as if they were surgical drone strikes. First Phil took the lead, then it was Tu, and finally Vince, who drew the last shooting position, down in points and the pressure on, the rest of the competitors watched in awe as “Impact” was called over and over. Vince’s consistent shooting with multiple back to back impacts and performance under pressure, earned him the title of Top Gun this November. Rumor has it Vince is converting his Desert Tech SRS to shoot the new 37 XC (.375 caliber) from his winning .338 Lapua, we will be watching with anticipation to see if bigger is better.

Vince the current Top Gun and Tu, last month’s Top Gun and this month’s runner up, were each awarded with certificates for $150 of Cutting Edge bullets (compliments of Cutting Edge Bullets).

It was also a great day for Carlos Perazza, as he bested fellow long time competitors Scott Austin and Bill Wood. Southwest ULR Shooters Association would also like to thank Carlos very much for his sacrifice and many years of service, in the US Air Force.

Vince is the SHOOTER.
We're missing the NorthCal guys.

I was able to get on the scoreboard early with a hit on the first and farthermost target (2615 yards?). After that I just wasn't able to connect with any of the targets again. The wind was terrible, shifting strength and direction after every shot and I wasn't the only one that fell victim to it. I used the same 338 Lapua rig from which got me on the board at NorCal URSA at our last shoot on Father's Day. I don't have a load worked up yet for my 375 CheyTac and so I wasn't willing to risk match shots to try and find out the DOPE.
