Rosebud Heavy Iron Shoot June 11, 2016
« on: May 07, 2016, 08:22:28 PM »
Reminder to everyone our first sanctioned shoot this year is the Heavy Iron on June 11. This will be a 1 day affair. Basically it is the anything goes class (unlimited). We will 10 shot groups at 100 yards in the morning and 10 shot groups at 200 yards in the afternoon. If you can lift it on a bench then you can shoot it, provided it isn't fixed to the bench. No muzzle brakes.

Let me know if you are planning to come so we can be sure to have the correct amount of volunteers.

Thanks

One gun, but it can be almost any rifle in unlimited, no muzzle brakes, and you can switch from one gun to the next if you think there would be an advantage. There will be five targets at 100 yards and 5 targets at 200 yards. 10 shot groups. That is 100 rounds on record plus your sighters for the day. If you preload you will need around 140-150 rounds.

Fee this year will be $20 for each aggregate, therefore $40 for the day.

Prizes are mainly bragging rights until sunset, then you everyone forgets who won. There are plaques and medallions given out as well.

Rick

Just a note that some of the shooters are planning to BBQ at the range after the match on Saturday. Everyone is welcome to participate, but you will be on your own for food. Rosebud has a BBQ we can fire up.

Good luck to all making the trip.

More so, try to not throw your backs out lugging them pieces of metal. 

I will be leisurely sitting behind my LV tossing some lead down range at the farm seeing if Roxanne still has it in her for St.Louis.

This one is in the bag! What turned out to be a rather cold and very windy day in the afternoon, led to some spirited competition none the less.

Great to see Dan Opel at the top with his newly acquired rail. Well done. Not to be missed was Wayne Miler's performance breaking the Rosebud Range Record in the Unlimited 10 shot single group record at 100 yards with a .143" Simply outstanding. Wayne used a 22/100 PPC Short using vintage McCraken bullets. Well done!

Further of note we had 2 new BR shooters this year with Mark Dumont hailing from the Mission Club in BC join us, and Mike Traynor joined us from the F Class ranks here in Calgary. Hats off to both shooters for taking the plunge and diving in at the deep end.

Next will be the BRSC Nationals the July 2/3 long weekend.

Thanks to the helpers and of course the Rosebud Club for hosting the match.
