2016 Match Results

4/24/2016 - Colorado Rifle Club - 80 Shot XTC
AR-15 with Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 scope
Match 1 - 132-1x
Match 2 - 123-2x *Saved 7 rounds... gun malfunction
Match 3 - 184-1x
Match 4 - 178-2x
Match 5 - 617-6x
Notes: First time shooting scoped in a match - Gun was malfunctioning all day and was quite frustrating.

5/14/2016 - Colorado Rifle Club - 600 Any/Any
Match 1 - 190-2x - AR-15 with 4-12x40 scope
Match 2 - 179-4x - M1A with irons
Match 3 - 178-1x - AR-15 with 4-12x40 scope
Match 4 - 547-7x
Notes: Shot both my scoped AR and Super Match in this match just for fun and practice. AR was still having issues with locking the bolt back....wind picked up dramatically for 3rd Match... I suck with high wind.


6/4/2016 - Woke up late for a match and discovered a problem with right eye (shooting eye). Doc says it's central serous chorioretinopathy and might heal but can take 4 to 6 months. Because of this, I can't really see using iron sights so the rest of this season will be shot using my scoped AR-15 service rifle (new CMP rules compliant... but what AR isn't any more ). I had intended to keep shooting the Super Match most of the time while dabbling with the AR, but the eye problem has forced me to change plans.

6/18/2016 - Colorado Rifle Club - 80 Shot Regional XTC
AR-15 with Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 scope
Match 1 - 167-0x
Match 2 - 187-4x
Match 3 - 190-3x
Match 4 - 180-1x
Match 5 -724-8x
Notes: Still suck in offhand but second string was better than first by 10 points. Off hand with a scope is tricky.... too much information makes me over compensate.... need lots more practice. Was high expert that day so I got to take home an NRA Medal

7/1/2016 - Buffalo Creek Gun Club - Colorado NRA High Power Championship
AR-15 with Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 scope
Match 1 (600 PSF)- 194-10x
Match 2 (300 PRF)- 189-2x
Match 3 (200 OSF)- 168-0x
Match 4 (200 SRF)- 194-5x
Match 5 -745-17x
Notes: This match is shot in reverse so there was zero wind when shooting 600 yards at 7 a.m. Rapid prone was okay, but I forgot to focus on reticle so groups weren't very tight. Still suck at offhand, but sitting Rapids were good. Personal best scores at 600 and 200 sitting rapid made for a great day. Beat my previous best aggregate score by 11 points. Yea!!! If my offhand didn't suck so bad, I could have shot a Master score.

2016 Match Results (To Date)

April 30, 2016 - Bucksnort Rifle Club, Regional Highpower Match - 80 Rnd XTC
M1A "Match Conditioned", Service Rifle Category
Match 1 - 171-01 (standing sets the tone, working on it)
Match 2 - 184-01
Match 3 - 174-00 (wind call off, good group left of center)
Match 4 - 180-03
Match 5 - 709-05 (High Sharpshooter NRA medal)

May 1, 2016 - Bucksnort Rifle Club, Four Man Team Match - 50 Rnd XTC (no sighters)
M1A "Match Conditioned"
Match Aggregate - 448-06

June 6, 2016 - Bucksnort Rifle Club, Missouri State Championship - 80 Rnd XTC
M1A "Match Conditioned", Service Rifle Category
Match 1 - 175-01 (90-01 in second string!)
Match 2 - 189-02
Match 3 - 185-00
Match 4 - 177-03 (Eyes strained on second string, working on it)
Match 5 - 726-06 (First in class in standing)

June 7, 2016 - Bucksnort Rifle Club, Four Man Team Match - 50 Rnd XTC (no sighters)
M1A "Match Conditioned"
Match Aggregate - 444-04

Effective mid July, NRA moved up my classification to "Expert". Observations: Scoped AR-15s benefit in rapids and slow prone; standing is more difficult to adjust. Match rifle shooters (separate category) started out with the M1A and provided good suggestions after the match.

7/8/2016 - Colorado Rifle Club - 80 Shot "Remebering the Brave" Regional XTC
AR-15 with Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 scope
Match 1 - 163-1x
Match 2 - 193-4x
Match 3 - 187-3x
Match 4 - 187-5x
Match 5 - 730-13x

This "Remembering the Brave" match was rescheduled due to bad weather a couple months ago. Due to the rescheduling, less participants were involved. All that said, I took 3rd Place overall in the Service Rifle Category. The conditions were very windy and so I am generally pleased with my score when compared to other higher ranked shooters who I beat today. Yea me!

Thumbs up Nicely Done!

Shooting in the 160s standing while its windy merits congratulations. Those were earned the hard way!

My official report came in. I placed DEAD LAST in the EIC match! The shooter above me scored a 407-4x

Shot with my LRB T44E4/5R

June 26th, 2016: Oregon State Highpower Rifle Open Championship, Match #9, EIC match

Stage 1, 200yd slow fire: 74-0x
Stage 2, 200yds rapid fire: 84-2x (broke last shot as target was moving down for 0 points)
Stage 3, 300yds rapid fire:74-0x
Stage 4, 600yds prone: 172-2x

Aggregate: 404-4x

June 26th, 2016: Oregon State Highpower Rifle Open Championship, Match #7, 600 prone: 167-0x (placed 16th out of 20 shooters)

June 26th, 2016: Oregon State Highpower Rifle Open Championship, Match #8, 600 prone: 165-0x (Placed 17th out of 20 shooters)

Although I can't verify it, I'm confident I was the only one who showed up with a self-built rifle. I was also the only M14 on the line. The rest were poodle poppers.

Tony.

Hang in there Tony... takes a lot of practice to get your positions down and even more to do it with M14. If it weren't for my pesky eye issue, I'd still be shooting my Super Match until I got to Master, but the eye gods got in the way and the scope is the only way I can stay in the game until it gets better. Next time you're at the range with some time to burn, practice setting up your sitting and prone positions, close your eyes and when you open them, see if you're still point at your target for the most part.... then tear it all down and do it again until you can get into position quickly.

Leg matches are difficult enough with no sighters (gotta really know your zeros), but given that you have to start from standing.... it adds an extra time sink into the process. 60 and 70 seconds is plenty of time, but you have to be able to find your NPA quickly.... and that takes practice.

Good on you for getting out there and giving it your best. I bet the next time you will do better.

These are my 3 EIC match scores all shot with an M1A.... as you can see, I've improved. I did okay last year even though my first offhand shot was a miss.

Sep 8, 2013 79.00 84.00 60.01 149.00 372.01
Sep 7, 2014 81.00 79.00 84.00 162.02 406.02
Sep 13, 2015 67.00 94.01 91.01 183.00 435.02

A few league matches so far this year. I will have to dig up the scores for those. Been having a little difficulty on the slow prone keeping my eyes clear. Got some new glasses and that has seemed to help.

7/16/2016 Cadillac Sportsman Club
Cadillac, MI
NRA 80
M1A Supermatch
Match 1 - 178-2x (Pair of 89s)
Match 2 - 187-4x (Be nice to fix my Rapid Sitting and keep them all in the black)
Match 3 - 193-5x
Match 4 - 191-5x (fatigue is my biggest enemy. First string was 98-4)
Match 5 - 749-16x

Good showing today for the iron horses. Out of 33 shooters, we had two M1As and two match conditioned Garands(One of them shot a 768). Usually when I go to these XTC matches, I'm the only one not shooting a poodle gun.
All and all, pretty good day at my level. Mid 70s for a high. Wind was pretty light(5-10 mph) but shifty. Coming from the west at the firing line. Mirage boiling toward the west at times. Hard to gage. Threw two 8s. After the first 8, I checked mirage, made a sight adjustment. Shot a 10. Then shot another 8 on the other side. Checked mirage and it had changed back on me. Got tired and wasn't keeping as good of an eye on the wind as I should have been.

Drug my dad up there too. He hasn't been able to shoot much this year, but once he dialed in, he shot his best score yet (698-9).

On another note. When you enter the outhouse on the 300 yard line, check it first to see if there is a hornet's nest that is the size of a football...

This shoot pretty much concludes the NRA XTC 600 yard matches in Michigan for 2016. I'd like to take one more in, but will more than likely need to head south. Open to any suggestions for September/October. In the meantime, I'll be enjoying the 200yrd reduced shoots. I have quite a few of those left to attend this year.

My last three matches
July 03, 2016 Millville NJ 763-18x
July 09, 2016 Roslyn NY 786-27x (Reduced 200)
July 10, 2016 Peconic River NY 776-22x (Reduced 200)

Something finally clicked for me this season. Mentally making fewer mistakes. Actually shot two HM scores back to back. Looking forward to Perry this year. Its been a bumpy road the last couple of seasons dealing with Hurricane Sandy and then a major house fire.

Thanks from arcticdog

At our local club we grant 5-6 sight in shots prior to the actual match and I encourage those newer shooters to do so off hand. They have a 200yd. zero and doing the standing stage for these "free" shots gets them over the butterflies most have just prior to the actual match. Using these 5-6 shots off hand first and with some coaching as well, have seen the off hand scores increase over a fairly short period of time, just a thought if you have such opportunity to do so. Would mention that there is a saying among older XC shooters that many "win it in the off hand, but lose it in the slow fire..." If you can improve the slow fire prone scores it will go a long way to bring up your total score for as you can see 20 shots is 20% of your total score in a 50 shot course of fire. Practice in each position is important, but mastering the slow fire prone is super important for most will drop more points there than the other 3 positions, redemption is found at the slow fire prone position. As often said, "if it were easy everyone would be doing it" and I have found that over time you will tend to shoot at certain levels but lo and behold, next match you discover something that you have been doing wrong and your score improves. As for fatigue the slow fire prone position should be a comfortable one with little or no stress IF you have built a good position, meaning sling tightness, skeletal use and not muscles, good breathing(breath through the nose, not mouth, gives more Oxygen to our brain/eyes) and one thing that helped me a lot was learning to load the rifle without taking butt off the shoulder, not easiest thing to do but keeps you in your NPA.

NPA isn't lost by dismounting the rifle from the shoulder. It's lost by moving your feet. Takes most new shooters a while to grasp the concept of knowing how to really establish NPA and to maintain it.

I like the extra sighters for the new guys. I am sure they appreciate it. We generally a shooting coach work with anyone that needs it and especially for shooters that have only recently completed SAFS.

We have to do what we can to forster the new shooters otherwise we'll be the last generations of shooters.

When I say NPA related to the prone position, taking the rifle down for each shot I see lot of shooters squirming about trying to get back into what they consider a comfortable/correct position, good sight picture, etc. and end result is a less than desirable score in prone. In prone slow fire see shooters with the toes of their boots on the ground and they should be as flat as possible. Wobbling feet will show up in the sight picture/target/score. Being right handed I encourage the new shooters to pull their right knee up so to speak for this takes undue pressure off the mid section of the body and necessary breathing does not cause as much body movement as though you were flat on the ground. Some can shoot very well being flat out, but just a suggestion.

Agreed. I misinterpreted what you said given that you were speaking about giving 5 offhand sighters prior to the start of the offhand string.
We're on the same page Sir

8/6/2016 - Cheyenne Rifle & Pistol Club - Cheyenne, WY
AR-15 with Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x20 scope

Match 1 (200 SRF)- 176-1x
Match 2 (200 OSF)- 194-7x
Match 3 (300 PRF)- 186-3x
Match 4 (600 PSF)- 186-1x
Match 5 -742-12x

Notes: Conditions weren't bad for Cheyenne...still windy, but I seen worse there. Fish tailing winds when firing 600 PSF helped me drop a few points for sure, but given my score (personal second best), I am quite happy with how the day turned out. Got to shoot with some good folks including Brycom1 and his brother. Second place out of 12 shooters... I beat out 5 of the 6 masters...and only lost by 2 points. Definitely a good day
