We shot Group at our regular monthly match.  9 hardy souls braved the winter weather to be greeted with relatively mild conditions, although those last few points did prove elusive!  We even had a couple of ties to break.

Thanks to Joe for running the match, to Art for preparing the targets and backers, to the target runners (I was loading and missed all the names, although I think I saw a newbie or 2 pitching in!) and to Sonya for both scoring and data entry.

We're back again on Sunday, December 3 - Hope to see you there. 

And the results...

Curious as to why the interest in a .262" neck?
In the last few years the the majority of reamers are in the .268-.269" range.
If you have a specific reamer dimension you would like you can order one to those specs. without any additional cost.

Fellow Shooters,

Here is the process for qualifying for the 2019 World Benchrest Team. There are a few things that each shooter needs to take care of to be eligible for the team:

1. Each shooter needs to declare their intention to enter the qualifying process by the end of February 2018. An email to registering their intention to qualify will be sufficient.
2. Each shooter needs to be a member of both BRSC and OFAH during the qualifying year and the competition year. This is per the World Team meeting in Nelson, NZ. Contact Carolyn Pollock at to become a BRSC member. To become a member of OFAH visit: to register. Proof of membership in both organizations will be required.
3. During the competition season in 2018, shooters will need to email with evidence of their placings at various events to be added to the qualifying tally and roster of shooters.
4. At the end of 2018 each shooter will be asked to confirm by email if they plan to attend the World Championships in Calgary and submit a $500 CDN deposit to the World Team to be used against the entry fee for the World Championship which is expected t be $400 USD.

Note: the qualifying ranking will be in accordance to the previous years format with your rank based upon how many points you have accumulated in the qualifying year. Points are awarded based upon how many shooters you placed above in your (6) best Grand Aggregates (LV, HV, SP) during 2018. There will be a cap of available points in each Grand Aggregate based upon the total # of shooters entered in the 2018 Cactus Classic.

Team selection will be based on this final ranking of accumulated points, receipt of entry fee deposit, with final selection taking place no later than December 31st, 2018.

Start planning now as it is expected to be a very competitive qualifying year with greater than normal interest due to the match being in Canada.
