Several years back Bud and I happened to shoot some 600 yard targets. After testing we found that a PPC would do very well. Since that time there have been many chambering and bullets tested. While totaling the results this year I am floored at the group and scores fired at 600 yards.

The untold part of this is the many groups of 4 shots that people would not believe. The part of keeping all 5 in is the game. Many can see the game growing and the targets becoming smaller.

IBS group record
Light gun 5 shots @ 600 yards. .749 What a target.
Group AGG total 20 shots at 600 yards. 1.7734

IBS heavy gun
Single target .861
Group agg. 1.507 for 4 targets of 5 shots each to total a 20 shot group at 600 yards.

2 GUN AGG 2.0225, Mind Blowing 40 shot group using 2 guns at 600 yards.

My point is to bring into mind the shooting accomplishments that have been made. Looking at results of shooters being separated by a few thousandths for 20 shots @ 600 yards.

My hat is off to the shooters who have competed and supported the sport. The record setters I solute you.

If you are a reader or just have not had the nerve to try a match, I tell you this. The worse thing possible is having a good time and meeting some great people. Your hunting rifles can and will shoot this. Each range has a factory class. Factory guns from Savage to Sako have fired great groups at 600 yards. Watching some of the targets I have seen factory guns print groups smaller than benchguns.

Sincerely Bill Truitt

Hello from the wife of Richard Schatz. I don't get to meet allot of you, but know how much you all mean to Richard. I am very proud of my husband and know you keep him on his game. I enjoy being just being his greatest fan. Best of Luck from Sherry;)

Sherry you should be proud,this sport we do is not like golf or baseball or ect.All we get is ataboys. but some times that is enought!

02-10-2008, 04:25 PM
Sherry,,,,You should come with him to Tennessee this June for the Nationals. I am sure you would enjoy the trip.

Those of us who do this shooting enjoy it, but more than that, we enjoy the friends we make. We talk to each other through the Winter months and discuss our thoughts for the up-coming season. We are very competetive, but will help each other with loads or anything else that is needed and then set down at the bench and do everything possible to beat each other.

When it is all over we all appreciate good shooting and let the winners know that...Richard is a tough competetor and we are glad to be able to shoot with someone as good as him..

Hope the Winter isn't getting you down..It must be COLD in North Dakota!
