    17 Feb 2020 - Recap of the URSA NorCal Feb ‘20 event (by RD, Lynn Dragoman; build info from Oscar)

    We finally got to shoot a NorCal match on Sunday 2-16-2020 after fires and closures kept us off the range.

    We held two matches at 2054 yards and our own White Mamba took the first match with 3 hits out of 10 shots.

    On the second match our own Skeeter tied with regular Ken Eng, both at 3 hits. Ken ran out of ammo after 6 shots and Skeeter took home the win. [The top three rifles in each match all had barrels chambered by BillyGoat Machine/Skeeter.] Congrats to Skeeter on his first match win.

    Another congrats to first time shooter Doug who came as a spectator and I had him shoot my 338 Improved, getting his first hit at 2000+ yards.

    Next time I will bring a bench and proper rests.

    Nobody got any achievement points or qualified for the 3K but everyone left with a smile.

    It's good to be back up and running!

    White Mamba was shooting a Surgeon action-based 338 LM with Krieger barrel, McMillan stock, and Nightforce scope. He was shooting Lapua scenar bullets.

    Skeeter was shooting (surprise) a Billy Goat Machine-built 338 LM Imp with BAT action, Krieger barrel, Manners stock, and Optronika 5-25x (now Minox owned) scope. He was shooting Berger 300 gr Hybrid OTMs.

    37" circle.

    Left arrow is the target, right is the 2050 yard shooting position. For 2500 yards they move further up the road.

    Why a 37" circle (gong)? Totally intentional - to match the outer ring of NBRSA 1000 yard paper targets - in case anyone wanted to run a match using available paper targets instead of a 115# gong.

    BTW, the target (size) is the same from 2000 to infinity.
