Great match I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Thank you to all who volunteered to make it happen.

I was tempted to. I transitioned over to optics per new CMP rules.
There were  2 of us service rifle shooters. Both of us used 4x power optics. Almost everyone shooting around us had higher mag optics. We couldn't see the scoring rings at all. I just cut the silhouette in half and placed the dot COM. I think I came in last. But in relation to other shooters the 2 of us shot with no rest other than a sling and glove. I was going in confident that I could keep up with those shooting a rest and higher mag scopes but I'm still struggling a bit shooting with an optic. head position, taking too long to break the shot etc.

I am impressed at what you can do with a 4X, especially with that target. I could make out the scoring rings at 300y with a 24X. At 500 and 600 all I saw was black and too was aiming center of mass. Wind was brutal.

Same here. I believe you may have been in a different relay. I was trying to spy all the bolt guns. Lol. I was shooting in relay 2 @ 38

That was a nice event. Had some good fun with a huge turn out. Those silhouette targets are quite the challenge out at 600yrs!
I hope there are plans in the works for next year.
