Tom shot this amazing 5-shot, 200 yard group at St. Louis in 2009.
I don’t understand how they can meaningfully measure groups like that on a piece of paper.
The range measurement was .093 but when sent to the records committee it came back as .089, I believe. Good shooting......James
In my dream, only in my dreams. I sit here and marvel at how many things have to be "right" for groups like that. And still, you have to add the equation of the shooter!
And that equation takes years of careful work to get right!
From what I have read online I thought that was a typical group. Something to be proud of for sure.
Tom was wonderful person.Very entertaining....He had good equipment and shot an Otto rail gun....
An asset to the sport... a standout and sadly missed....
Well it's what my groups look like, yes sir, you betcha....
If I only shoot once!
That group pictured is a lot of skill and raw talent for sure!
A level of excellence I will never achieve.
Just because I don't like the color...
Skill and raw talent, you never met Libby.
Just kidding. He was a great guy. Always made ya smile.
Really cool is that it is dead center!
Tom was quite a character!
In case your comment wasn’t rhetorical, these help.
I know that you are not saying that he used a rail to get that group, but others may think that he did. This group was shot with a 10.5 pound Sporter. Good shooting.....James
Yes we’ve got one at our club for long range but our guys have a margin of error when measuring bigger than that group size lol
All I can say is
I am not worthy.
Just a side note to Tom's "dead center" record group. All 4 200 yard NBRSA groups were broken that year and still stand.
Unlimited, Sporter, light and Heavy. I do believe at least 3 of them were with Lowell's bullets.
HECK!!!! that aint nuthin, I can do that offhand at 200yrds with my 30-30!!!
TRULY a crazy achievement!!! if I could do that at 100 id be HAPPY!!!!!
I don't even have something like that on my bucket list. I am smart enough to know better and I am way on the downhill side.
