12 Canadians made the trek to Phoenix to participate in the 2018 Cactus Classic. Here is an excellent write up of the event by Ryan Neal:
--------------------------------
Thank you for coming out to shoot the 2018 Cactus Classic. We are thrilled to say that this match saw a total of 157 shooters this year, the largest that we have seen in quite some time! Shooters from as far away as Sweden came out to enjoy a mostly sunny week.
 
The first few days of practice saw quite  a bit of wind in the morning, but the rest of the week saw some pretty mild, even if sometimes switchy, conditions. We ended the week of practice on Friday night with a banquet where we gave away prizes that were donated to the match by various sponsors; including scopes, barrels, stocks, and more.
 
Saturday we started with Light Varmint 100 yards. Durward Wofford took match 1 with a 0.123, Keith Cottrell took match 2 with a 0.109, Dean Ekstrom took match 3 with a 0.102 which earned him small group for the LV-100, Peter Haxel took match 4 with a 0.105, and Joe Pipola took match 5 with a 0.120. Larry Baggett came in 3rd in the LV-100 agg with a 0.1856, Hugh Williamson came in 2nd with a 0.1834, and Jonas Sandberg came in 1st with a 0.1818.
 Wayne Miller came in 3rd with a 0.2220,
In the afternoon we shot Heavy Varmint 100 yards. Tom DeBacco took match 1 with a 0.095 which got him small group for the yardage, Gabriel Ledesma took match 2 with a 0.116, Lowell Frei took match 3 with a 0.104, Jack Childers took match 4 with a 0.129, and Greg King took match 5 with a 0.106. Keith Cottrell came in 3rd in the HV-100 agg with a 0.1976, Robert Seeman came in 2nd with a 0.1920, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1864.
 
Sunday morning’s weather took a turn and we ended up with pouring rain in the early morning. Unfortunately for the target crew, it was still pouring while they were putting in the targets. Luckily for our shooters, the rain calmed down by the time we started shooting. The rest of the day saw sunny and fairly calm conditions.
 
We shot Heavy Varmint 200 yards first on Sunday. William Marsh took match 1 with a 0.271, Dennis Wagner took match 2 with a 0.242, Dennis Thornbury took match 3 with a 0.201 which got him small group for HV-200, Richard Brensing took match 4 with a 0.209, and Dennis Thornbury took match 5 with a 0.252. In the HV-200 agg, Bob Scarbrough came in 3rd with a 0.1921, Dean Ekstrom came in 2nd with a 0.1867, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1731.
 
In the afternoon we shot Light Varmint 200 yards. Lester Bruno took match 1 with a 0.235, Paul Pennell took match 2 with a 0.241, Gabriel Ledesma took match 3 with a 0.253, Joel Nader took match 4 with a 0.121, and Jack Neary took match 5 with a 0.109 that got him small group for the yardage. For the LV-200 agg,  Jack Neary came in 2nd with a 0.1823, and Joel Nader came in 1st with a 0.1821.
 
For the Light Varmint grand agg, Jack Neary came in 3rd with a 0.2173, Joel Nader came in 2nd with a 0.2127, and Jonas Sandberg came in 1st with a 0.2042. For the Heavy Varmint grand agg, Dean Ekstrom came in 3rd with a 0.2189, Dave Gibson came in 2nd with a 0.2150, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1798. In the end for the 2-Gun grand agg, Andy Shifflett came in 5th with a 0.2331, Jack Neary came in 4th with a 0.2327, Dean Ekstrom came in 3rd with a 0.2308, Joel Nader came in 2nd with a 0.2188, and Wayne Campbell came away our 2018 Cactus Classic 2-Gun winner with a 0.2100.
 
Another big thank you for making the trip out here to Phoenix, we are thrilled that we had such a great showing this year and always appreciate you choosing the Cactus as one of your must-attend matches. We hope to see you next month for the April 7th-8th Unlimited 5-shot Season Closing Match.

Normal to see some carbon on the neck. Not a lot though. Less than 50% coverage. Shouldn’t see any on the shoulder. What cartridge and load are you using?
16  News / Club Events / Re: BR101 Clinic May 12, 2018 - Rosebud on: February 14, 2018, 09:53:12 PM
Check with folks at Mission I believe they have an introductory BR day.

Organized benchrest has been around since just after WWII. The level of experimentation we are talking about is still ongoing today the same as it has for decades. Most of the experimentation is at the minutia level, but still going on.

Thanks Mark. Always appreciate your updates. We have assembled a veritable rogues gallery to invade BC in May and in August.

Mr J,

hard to quantify what works, a bit easier to say what doesn't work. In short range BR shooters have been experimenting with fitted/stepped necks (more or less zero clearance) up through about .004 - .005 total clearance. This has been going on for about 40-50 years. Experience has proven that .002" - .0025" total clearance is where the magic happens. Anything less will require fanatical attention to details and may prove quirky after just a few firings as brass migrates around a bit. Anything over about .004" and accuracy suffers.

While you are pondering this it is important to figure out what the actual chamber neck diameter is. It won't necessarily be what is printed on the reamer. You can use pin gauges, bore gauge to figure neck diameter. Hope this helps.
