    Holbrook indoor Results 1/6/2018

    Though day on the indoor range with a-30 wind chill. Mark M rebuilt his regulator and didn't get a chance to test it. Chris put on a shroud on his Thomas shot awful, took it off shot a 250 third target put it back on and shot awful. Welcome back Mark N. From a two year hiatus!
    Had two 10,000 BTU heaters at the firing line to help with the -30 wind chill.
    First match
    LV Class
    Mark Normandin RAW 248 14x, 250 17x, 249 17x, 747 48x
    Chris Sloan Thomas 244 6x, 249 11x, 247 12x, 740 29x
    Mark Marini Thomas 241 5x, 215 3x, 240 3x, 696 11x
    Second Match
    HV Class
    Mark Marini Thomas 250 13x, 250 17x, 250 19x, 750 49x
    Mark Normandin RAW 248 15x, 249 14x, 248 14x, 745 43x
    Chris Sloan Thomas 246 12x, 250 12x, 243 6x, 739 30x

    Bay was frozen so boat from the islands were not running. Plus we just got 20 plus inches of snow on Friday along with -20 to -35 wind chill with.up to 50 mph wind gusts.

    Hope next month the weather is better.

    Regulator Fixed

    Seems like you got the regulator fixed for the HV match Mark! Or was that a different rifle?

    Thanks Paul for sticking with us during the shoot! Certainly was cold!
    In fairness to the shroud, it was my first shoot with it and it may simply need some small adjustments.
    I know the other shrouds have apparently shot very well and it certainly quiets the Thomas's bark!
    More testing ahead!!

    Chris, can you tell if the shroud is clipping the pellets? My shroud on my AZ Theoben would take a big chunk off the pellet. I was shooting into a 4" PVC pipe filled with cotton batting. Then Dan Brown said it was easer to fire into a 5 gal pail of water.. Easer to find the pellet.
    I shot today and could load with a Bobby pin tool at my house and could insert at least 7 out of 10 pellets. Might be shooting at the next match. Might even check the weather at Salem this weekend and shoot on Sunday..will be the first time since the National's.

    Paul,
    Sounds like your hands have improved substantially.
    So glad to hear it.

    Thank You Paul

    Paul,

    Thanks for the pic of the new NOTA rest. Takes some getting used to but a keeper.
    Nice image of the BulzEyePro and Parallax Killer on the scope.
    I believe that contributed to my 750 in HV.
    The poor LV score was my fault for not tightening the hammer spring lock nut.
    That won't happen again.
    Mike and I are testing the shroud. No clipping so far but seems to shoot better with some
    barrels more than others. It happens to group very well with 2 of my polys.

    Lets all keep Dave in our prayers. He has a very bumpy road ahead.
