    MSM is proud to announce that we have secured a date for the Dean Herron Memorial Match. Sunday Sept. 22 we will be hosting this annual 3x600 match. As in the past we'll have the traveling trophy's for this years class winners. High F-Class, High F-T/R, High Prone and last but certainly not least, the wood and steel category. ( wood and steel service rifles, scoped or irons,1903/
    M1/M1A ) So get those old rifles out, knock the dust off and get that ammo loaded. Hope to see every one in a couple of weeks. Tim/John MSM

    PS: This weekend we are also hosting a 6 x 600 at Henry County Gun Club. Be great practice for the memorial match. Hint,hint

    As per our web site, the match on Saturday is and has been canceled for months. This Sunday just became available a week ago, as it was canceled previously also. When in doubt, check our web site http://www.midsouthmarksmen.com/ for current up to date info. Once again, the match (3x600) is 22 September. Hope to see you there Tim/John MSM

    Hoping I can make this match again this year.

    Never seen anyone shoot a 40x in 30-338 with an unsprung Unertl like Dean. He really had the rythem down and made shooting that beast look easy.

    He won the Farr trophy at Perry in 1970 with a score of 100 18V. We owe him for the AEDC KD range. If it were not for him and his efforts in the 1960s and 1970s we would not have the AEDC KD Range today. He never would take credit for all that he did but gave the credit to the work of others who helped him in this effort.

    Finished loading last night. Going to try upping the charge. 3gr and using .002" more neck tension. Hopefully I can get rid of some of the verticle.

    See you Sunday morning, with my 10x10 EZ Up!

    Chris - this is for your “wood and steel” rifle, right? I’m shooting a Garand.

    I'm bringing my Garand (Not the 243, which is actually now a 6XC) as a back up. I intend on shooting my 1903 if things work out. Thomas stated he was bringing his M1A, but now that I think about it. He never actually stated he was shooting it. If he does, I'll
    be surprise for sure.

    Dasher will be in the truck. I need to make sure this ammo shoots before Memphis.

    Besides the M14, Deam shot a 40x in 30-338 with a Unertl that free recoiled. No adjustable anything on the stock, just a rail for the hand stop. Would be interesting to see if any of us could shoot a rifle like that as well as he did.

    Well I'll be trying with my 1903A1 MC Sniper clone. Its not 30-338, but its 30-06 with steel buttplate. If I cant keep them in the black, I've got my Garand(not the 6mm) as back up. My poor M1A needs a barrel, which will be one of my winter projects.
    See you gentlemen in the morning.....................Tim

    Sounds like there is going to be a good mix of classic service rifles (of the world it seems) and modern fair. See you at 7am tomorrow.

    Great Match.
    Did anyone happen to find a single F-Class "Foot" for a SEB Neo on the ground around the #4 shooting position after the match. I didn't notice that one must have fallen off my rest when I was packing up at the end. Its an aluminum round "foot" about 2" in diameter that screws onto the SEB ground support screws. Thanks.
