We shot the 600 yard match and a 1,000 yard match today. The guys who shot the 600 yard match first thing this morning had near perfect conditions with the range flags barely moving. One of the guys shot the 20 round first stage with a score of 200, 14X.

The 1,000 yard match was a totally different story with a 5-10 MPH wind continuously shifting directly in our faces to 90 left with a wicked mirage. It was constantly changing direction and if you weren't watching every second, you lost shots horizontally. A 10 MPH, 90 degree wind with my 142 grain SMKs from my 6.5x284 results in about 66" of drift at 1,000 yards. Were talking X ring to dirt ring in the blink of an eye.
