    Wish I'd thought of that!

    I'm with ya Pete! I have never seen a good crown create negative consequences. I *have* seen a bad crown open groups up tremendously. I've never tried the hacksaw test myself, but I've seen it...

    The most important part of competition is figuring out what you want from competition

    That's a great deal of prescience. Actually, it's easier to recognize than to deal with. But I'm mostly in the same boat. I want to have fun. I *don't* want to sacrifice my happiness to winning. ...

    So much true!

    I think this list idea is great! And could be of tremendous utility to new / aspiring shooters.

    Alinwa and liljoe definitely have it right - as in any sport *drive* is *the* deciding factor. ...

    Amen! I took a scraping class perhaps a dozen years ago, and that was my take-away. I still have a hand-scraper, but probably wouldn't scrape anything except for decoration.

    Krieger is consistently in the #1 or #2 spot in several other long-range (1000yd) sports as well. (I think I've only seen them in #2 - behind Bartlein - at one major PRS match).
