    To Jeff Stover:

    BTW, one reason they don't have 10-shot groups at 600 yards is the lack of moving backers.

    Wherever you hold the match, better make sure there are moving backers.

    Or when a guy use to 30+ inch barrels shoots next to a guy with a 20-inch barrel -- the muzzle being almost a foot closer does give a certain *ring* long-range guys aren't use to.

    This from someone who actually shoots a .338 with a brake, and the newest addition, a .30 PPC with a 20-inch barrel.

    You know, I've really got to side w/Charles Ellertson here, something in the 400-450 range would be ideal. My dream would be "unlimited" as in shoot what'cha brung, all the flags you can put out and unlimited sighters. Then and only then can EVER'BODY bring their 'A' game.

    I'd drive a long ways to try that out!

    I would guess it would be to find a range that can handle a match of that size. ......union Co. has 300 yds. and has the facilities to handle it, i would guess you need moving backers? I thought that a range nobody shot would be better but 4-500 but you can't find one set up to do this. you have to try to satisfy every one, so 300 is it. If you can have a sight in period and go for the record it will be even. I think Jeff has a good idea, from the size of the threads and amount of interest. I would like them to try to get new people to try it also, they would get to go with all the different disciplines. I think it may stir some interest in the sport, you have a lot of ground hog shooters in that area.
    I think a 5 agg. is a little too much, maybe 3 would be better if you have a 10 shot in there. If you have a large turn out it may turn it to a marathon....... jim

    Keep working at it and you will get around to our kind of match.

    Scoring is easy and cross fires do not penalize the recipient. Can increase the difficulty by increasing the range or the number of smaller targets.
    Besides, it's fun to watch something break.

    To "who would win" ? ... my opinion would be:

    - think the long rangers would have a lot of fun shooting over a sea of flags
    - think the short rangers would have a lot of fun shooting against "boomers"
    - think everyone would enjoy seeing the masses and variety of equipment
    - think the best finishers will have the most accurate rifles to ever be built
    - think the best finishers, reloading practices will be highly desired
    - think the best finishers will be proficient mirage readers
    - think the PRIZE table could be HUGE, and every buddy will win !!!!
    Thinking it could be a great event...... and the start of something grand !!!

    *** I vote for it to be held in the off-season, in a warm winter state. My thought to this is, more would be able to attend, and not as many conflicts to existing dates and shooting events.

    Sure hope it can happen !!!!

    Donovan, you are correct. The mix would be extremely interesting and informative for all those involved. Make no bones about it, the best finishers will be "very" good at their game no matter which one they came out of. Nobody is a pushover. In 2012, shooting registered matches, I managed to win or place it the top 3 for 100yd group. Varmint for score, 600 yard, and 1000 yard. None of them are easy for sure.

    This could be a real winner.

    I think the short range guys would kick my butt, I think I would have to re-tune everything! I know 10 shots would be under 3/4" at 300 but most of you guys shoot that in one hole. What is a good group at 300 yards anyway?

    Joe, here is the link for NBRSA records. Note that four of the eight are held by Southeastern shooters...

    It appears that the single target records are in inches and the 5 target aggs. are in m.o.a.

    Is that correct?

    Yes

    Edit:

    BTW, I was at the Charlotte 300 yard shoot where both Bart & Jeff Graves got their records. It was a special day. Three people broke the existing LV aggregate record -- Jeff Summers broke it as well, just not as small as Bart.

    Out host, Wilbur, also won a 300 yard unlimited at Charlotte, a different year. Do remember he was shooting Brady's 68-grain, 9 ogive bullets, so I bought 1,000. I later shot a .082 at 100 with them. But then, everybody knows 9-ogive won't work...
