Default Shooting at Cuyama Sunday Apr. 18

We're shooting 1,000 yards starting at 8 AM. After 6 months of work and personal issues, I finally get to go out and shoot a match.

See the other Cuyama posts for directions to the range if you want to shoot or watch.

We only had four shooters for this morning's 1,000 yard match. I guess most of the people shot the 600 yard and 1,000 yard matches yesterday. I shot like crap after not shooting for over 6 months, I need more trigger time.

We had a 5-10 MPH wind coming from behind our right shoulders which is the wind that I hate the most on our range. The wind comes up the valley from behind us and then hits the slope on our right and creates a 90 degree right to left wind right at the targets. Sometimes you can't see the cross wind on any of the downrange flags except for the red "live fire" flag hanging over the target butts.

Oh well, I had fun and it was good to get down on the mat.

Next month there are no matches scheduled since it's our annual working weekend for range repairs. I'll probably bring my camping trailer down and stay the weekend.

Here's my second relay target. The high 7 was my sighter before the actual scoring shots. You can download the data to your phone or tablet for the match and it will give you the numbered order for every shot, the velocity of every shot, the velocity standard deviation, the distance from the center for every shot, etc. These electronic targets are actually the best teaching tool that you can get for shooting long distance. You could make a 4x4 frame and set it up at any range on the target lane as fast as you can staple the a paper target up and have the velocity figures at 100 yards and not need a chronograph.

That's great, Dane.

I'm going to order one of the Shotmarker electronic target kits for myself and I have two guns to re-barrel to get everything set up for the summer matches.

I'm putting a new barrel on my 243 and possibly my 22.250AI. I changed the barrel on my 6.5x284 just 8 matches ago so I'm under 500 rounds through it.

All the short actions are Savages right?

Iím considering investing in a switch barrel setup on one of these new actions that can use prefit barrels.
