There were some interesting scores fired. Jamie Root was the high sling shooter with a 597-26X. Of note, is his closest competitor was twelve (12) points behind. I believe Jamie was benefiting from a hard hold, and nuclear 223 handloads (MZ over 3100 fps with 85.5 Bergers).
in the F-Open Category Marcel Bollinger bested the pack with a 590-26X. He too was seven (7) points ahead of his closest challenger.
