Who's the new polite guy posting under Mike in Col. account? He seems like an asset to the website.

Do you want to get in the pool to see how long he lasts this time?

At first I thought you were suggesting we get into a swimming pool to see who could hold their breath the longest underwater. Then I realized you actually want to hold his head under water to see how long he can hold his breath.

I will not be a party to that sort of shenanigans, even for someone from Colorado...

All kidding aside Mike congrats on your 600 yd. score. I don't compete but do you have any thoughts on how you group poorly but score well. I find it interesting how that works.

while long range and short range are very different, there are parts that are the same.
you either shoot very fast or shoot slow looking at conditions. the big difference is you cannot see the holes at long range.
the affect of the wind is very big. a 5 mph will move a bullet 10" at 600 but 32" at 1000. small wind change is gonna move the bullet INCHES.
as a rookie i have little time recognizing small wind changes, so i get burned when shooting slow....so on day 2 to i shot faster....it took me over 70 seconds to shoot 5 rounds,
most guys shoot 5 in under 20 SECONDS. while not fast i shot very consistent, and tied a national record at 147-5x..i shot three 49's in a row.
look at day one, i had a 7.8 "group". it was actually three groups. very little vertical, but missing small wind changes gave me a shot in the center, and then 2 left 3 plus inches and then 2 to the right 3 plus inches for a 7.8". poor wind reading...the same thing that got me at raton..i had several 4 +1 groups that killed me.
the other side of the coin is if you shoot fast and you miss a condition change from you last sighter round, you can shoot a small group, but not score well.
go look at the target i posted in day 2......i adjusted in from the right due to a left wind that was very consistent....after the sighters all shoots in the blue...very very small wind changes when i was shooting.

I cannot give the exact date, but it would have been 8 or 9 years ago, in September, at a Red Robin south of downtown Denver, west of I-25. I was in town for an industry trade show and you were just back from a gun show selling brass.

I will say that was the 1 and only time I have ever graced a Red Robin. NOT going to happen again. Mickey D is better and cheaper. Only good thing is RR has a liquor license. They need it to cover up their bad food.
