    H deserves a mention for bypassing the plinking range, getting 22, and then finding out only today that she was 5x1/4 MOA from 25-55 yds... ;)

    she made it through the chrono... she's running the same rig set for exacts, so at the moment she's 784 with mozzies... up 15 from a week or so before. Doesn't seem enough to push it that high, but then i've never seen the speed increases corrolate with POI shifts in temp that ballistic calculators seem to indicate. It's not a range thing, because it's been done on known target distances, as opposed to ranged ones.

    It could probably do with setting up to a more ideal speed, but at the moment there's plenty to work on...

    Mike,

    This might sound a bit harsh but what about Jack Harris.....??

    Hear me out, could he get it for missing 1 target on that course for a clear and the fact that it was his second shot of the day haahaa........

    Just a thought fella.

    Rob Long deserves a mention for dialing one turn out for a close reducer and forgetting to dial back costing him the next 4 targets. :D:D

    I must say Mike you have picked a good team to judge this award. As I know one of them should have dial 2 turns for a close reducer but only dialed 1. :eek::eek:

    Regards

    Mark

    I nearly forgot

    DORIAN FALCONER

    He missed the 9 yard 25mm kill because and I quote "I turned the mag down but have put a coaster on the mag ring and it didnt go down to 10 mag, thats why I missed it".

    Now Mike as you know I would never lie or extract the truth when speaking of a serious incident like this would I..... Moooohaaahaaa moooohaaahaaaa....

    Oh great Alan, I can barely shoot the right targets for one comp to the next, and now you say my quarterly misdials will end up being more frequent?
