    Just curious as to whom may be planning on going to the 1st match of the season in the N.E ?
    I will be going and I’m hoping to see everyone that can make, it’s been a long winter so come one come all let’s shoot together and have a good time.

    It certainly has been a Long Ugly winter.
    Let's pack the place, and have a good time.
    I'm looking forward to seeing all your Old Faces (haha), and hope to meet some new ones too!
    Bring a friend along if you can, and start Their new addiction, early on in the season.

    I will have to learn more about GBA.

    The rifle I have is a Alex wheeler 6MM BRA with the 4" wide stock. Legal for GBA?
    I will have to see what I can get for a front rest as all I currently have is sand bags.

    Sounds like it could be a fun shoot.

    Stan.

    Thank you kindly for the offer. I haven't started load development yet. It was a long winter.

    I should be starting later this month.
    I have 50 pieces of fire formed brass that I shot late last fall.

    I will be starting with Berger 6MM 105gr Hybrids as that is what I have currently to work with.
    as I only have 300 yd range to work with that is what I will be testing at.

    Thanks again.

    Put together a bunch of different loads.
    If your gun is not over 17#, you will be able to shoot it Four different times, possibly up to Eight!
    You'll have a good time, and get an opportunity to test loads at 1000 yards!
    Everyone will be happy to help you get started.
