Shooters News For the MN Area - May 15, 2013

The Week Ahea 
Prone Shooters, and 3P shooters both have good rifle matches to participate in this coming weekend.

Highpower prone shooters have the opportunity to attend a Wind Reading Clinic Saturday, May 18th at the Elk River Sportsmans Club.  Aimed at the Mid Range, and Long Range Competitive Shooter, this clinic will have some top coaches giving pointers on  guaging the wind when trying to hit a target in 600 yd Mid range matches and beyond. In the Afternoon shooters can tryout their new skills in a two man Team match - 20 shots per shooter at 600 yds.  Click Here for Match program

The Sunday, May 19, match at Elk River Sportsman's Club will be an 80 shot (4 x 20) prone and F-class, and will all be shot from the 600 yd line.  Remember,  this Range has a nice soft grass 600 yd line, with good light and honest wind to read. Come out and put a few shots down range, the mid-range season has begun.

Small Bore
 The Small Bore calendar is also full this weekend with matches both days -  again at the Elk River Sportsman's Club's nice 20 position outdoor Small Bore facility.  Saturdays competition will see shooters contesting a  3P Metric match.   Click Here for Match Bulletin.

Prone shooters will have their day on Sunday, May19, when the competition is all belly matches, and shooters will fire 4 matches of 40 shots, in a 50 yd match, and a Dewar match in the morning with Iron sights, and then in the afternoon, It will be Any sights for a 50 meter match, and the always tough - 100 yd match.  Since I don't have enough ammo loaded for the High Power match, I'll probably head for the Small bore prone match Sunday and shoot some of that Lapua OSP ammo I tested in their Mesa, Az test tunnel this winter.  Click Here for match Bullein.


300 Meter
From Brian Shiffman:
"Thanks to George (and Susan) Minerich for running the match for me as I was out of town for the weekend.
There were a couple of new shooters in the match, Sean Humphreys in F-TR class and Will Lakey in Prone class.  Unfortunately, Will’s score is not shown in the web results page since he did not record his last series.  If it comes in I will add him to the results page.
The next match is June 9.  Registration will be open late in May; as soon as I have the date when registrations will be accepted I will pass them along in another email. "
Brian D. Shiffman

That's all folks
