Best to enter number of rounds. ie 300 or 500 rounds etc. as you can bring the specified number each trip.

I plan on attending


Best to buy a LV rifle. 10.5lbs with scope. Allows you to compete in all categories.  Knowing the gunsmith that assembled the rifle is nice to know. Barrel round count is not a real consideration as I would plan on having new barrels chambered. A custom action is best Bat , Kelbly etc is far better than trued factory. make sure everything works as it should. Test fire if possible.
Hope this helps.

Congratulations to Phill the 2017 BRSC Champ.

Phill shot quietly and steadily all weekend and pulled off the win. I think all had a good time the weather was co operative. We all had a good chance to get caught up.

Looks like the Canadians had a good showing at The EAST WEST in St. Louis. Congratulations to Hugh, Dan, Vic and Tyler for representing Rosebud range, the BRSC and our country. Have a safe drive home.
Looks like it was tough conditions.

Hugh shot well. He made very few mistakes. Very steady. I was doing ok at 100. The wheels came off the cart at 200. This was my first time at this range. Strange shooting downhill, nice range good people. I will go back for the NBRSA nationals next year.
We had a good time.

Most all modern rails attach the barreled action to the rail top by way of a barrel block. The action is free floating. V or round block both have benefits both work both win. As Dan said the amount of clamping force matters and every rail setup is different. Still comes down to a very good barrel as the most important factor in a winning rail. And of course knowing when to pull the trigger.


I shot next to Dan all weekend. He shot very steady and pulled out the win in some tough conditions with no mistakes. Congratulations !


I'm in.

I feel in need to respond to you. You most likely stated what others were thinking. I read your reply to to my post yesterday and was shocked. I wanted to post a reply yesterday but thought it would be best to be more careful in my choice of words and wording. I feel I have been misunderstood. I in no way meant any disrespect to shooters who have represented Canada in the past or present.  
“the ability to put forward our best and most competitive teams not just the members that can afford it”.  This quote was not directed to anyone but in fact the feeling I had while competing in a prior WBC, not performing as well as I thought I should and thinking that I was there because I had put forward the money and that there were probably better representatives for the country.
 Everyone who has shot the WBC has sacrificed time, family and finances to represent our country, and I appreciate that. I am proud of the accomplishments that all of you, my team members have achieved whether it be personal bests, group records, Agg wins, or two gun placements.  Hell I scan the NBRSA magazine every month looking first for Canadian shooters. I'm sure we all do. Whether WBC, US matches big or small or Canadian shoots we are all happy to see our collective successes.
All of this being said. I stand by what I meant if not what I said or how it can across. I do apologize for what came out. In an idealistic world BR teams would have full funding to represent their countries and the only determining factor for team selection would be performance. You may or may not agree with this. We know this will never happen. Finance as well as time commitment will always be issues in this sport.
I don't want anyone to feel like a BR hypocrite because they have not represented the country at prior WBCs. I didn't like the idea that prior attendance at WBC was a determining factor in future selection but I understood the prior commitment needed to be recognized. As I have said I hoped that there was a system of selection that all could see as fair.
I read and reread the above quote and I think I see where i went wrong in the statement. " the ability to put forward our best and most competitive teams " is maybe where it should have ended. Maybe it shouldn't have been started in the first place. I see where the rest of it comes across as dismissive to the commitments that all have made whether financial or otherwise. This was not the intent.
In our country there may be an East West political rift. In BR in my mind anyway there is not. I look forward to shooting with and against everyone out East. We don't get to do it near enough in this country. I wish it were possible to have a range in this country that was convenient for all. Again will never happen and we will be dependent on US shoots  to catch up and compete with each other. My competitive nature has gotten  me into trouble before and at least Calvin doesn't have to feel like the only A Hole. We are well represented out West.
Again to anyone whom I have slighted I do apologize.

I am happy to see that this kind of rank system is becoming neccesary in this country. It tells me there is increased interest in the sport. We see it prominently in Alberta due to the efforts of Rick and others and I am happy to see more competition as it will raise the bar for everyone. I hope that what ever system used would be seen as fair to all but nothing is perfect. Most important in my mind is the ability to put forward our best and most competitive teams not just the members  that can affort it. 2015 will most likely see a peak in interest due to the location and this motion is timely.

The system will favor those who shoot at bigger US matches, and maybe it should. I don't know. As interest increases in BR in Canada there will be more competition for WBC positions. That, I feel is a good thing. This ranking system will create a more serious and competitive environment for those interested in competing at the world level. I like it. I hope there will be enough interest in representing our country in world competition that we need to use it.
For me personally it won't change anything. It seems I like to go to shoots where I will likely get my ass handed to me. That's the only way I learn. To see what others are doing right and keep trying.
The only down side is the fact that people unable to travel to big matches may be at a disadvantage when it comes time to add up the points. But no system is perfect. The USA shooters complain about their selection system too. Over all I think its a move in the right direction.

I thought this was initiated by the WBSF to apply to all countries. I missunderstood. This is a directive by Canada for Canadian shooters. Makes sense to me.   
So any NBRSA, IBS, BRSC etc match or is sanctioning body needed? Can any combination of grand aggs be used or must for example an LV and HV agg from the same match be used.
