    New world record by Gene Bukys

    NEW WORLD RECORD GENE BUKYS

    Yes itís said that Every Thing is Bigger in Texas.

    Well in this case Smaller is Better and Gene has done it with his New World Record for a 5 Ė 5 shot groups at 100 & 200 yards in the Sporter Class Grand Aggregate.

    The Old Record: .1886 and the New Record .1777

    Great Job Eugene G. Bukys, this record was shot at the Arizona Nationals this year.

    It is my understanding that Gene has bought a new special cowboy hat to start putting his awards on it but donít get to close to him as the brim will hit you in the head.

    Mike Bryant is right. He works and tries harder than the rest. Nothing but very hard serious work gets it done.

    I shot next to Gene at Phoenix. He was shooting Scoville stocked Bat's with his TSI external adjustable rings and locked up Leupold competition scope, probably Bartlein barrel with a stiff load of N133. So much for 133 not shooting in dry climates.

    Guys;
    Thanks for all the compliments they are much appreciated

    Mike is mostly correct about the equipment -- but you asked so I'll go a little bit further with the list

    The rifle that shot the record is;


    SS Bat 3 lug that has been modified slightly

    it is equipped with my TSI external adjustable mount and a Leupold 45X that I locked up -- the scope has a 30% Davis booster on it for a final magnification of about 58X

    The barrel is a Bartline gain twist -- it is 13.85 to a final twist at the muzzle of 13.75 -- I get a special taper on my barrels so that they make weigh at about 22 inches with my TSI Tuner/Snubber in place -- this barrel did have one of my Tuners/snubbers on it

    The stock was not one of my Scoville's but was in fact my Lenard stocked rifle

    I was shooting 68 grain Hottenstien Boat Tail bullets

    I did shoot a pretty stiff load of 133 all the way

    I did use a Farley front rest and was shooting this rifle pegged to the front stop (not free recoil )

    If I missed something that you want to know just ask --- I donít have any secrets---

    Gene
