While the southeastern portion of Michigan got pummeled with rain, Midland enjoyed the sun and being dry. However, we did get wind. Enough wind that there were no cleans today. The closest were the two sling shooters, who both managed one 198.
After firing one of the 198s on my first string with my Mousegun Palma Rifle. I thought, that was easy, if I hadn’t broke the two bad shots I would have been clean. Then I started the second string, and until my last five shots I don’t between I had two tens together, and no “X’s” until my very last shot. Moreover, there was no predicting where the wind was moving me.
The high sling shooter was Ray Gross with a 392-25X. Ray was using his Palma Rifle with 155s. The high F-Open shooter was Mike Ruhlman with a 387-13X.
We had one other “fun” faux pas with Tony Dekelaita. He had 60 rounds of ammo, but only 40 of them had primers. Over the years, we have all made mistakes, but this is the first time I saw this one. He explains he ran out of one lot of brass, and just grabbed some more, without noticing that it wasn’t primed, yet.
We have the potential for one additional Winter League Match for 2019. That would be on April 27, 2019. Watch this spot for updates. Program is: 2019 Winter Mid-Range Prone League Program.
