    I was very happy to shoot a score of 89. Had a few magazine issues, and a few brain-fades with led to some dropped points. I need to practice getting into position and firing more quickly. On two of the stages I left points out there, because I did not complete the stage. Room for improvement. I would have been happy with winning the match, but I placed second. Because my shooting buddy, who drove us to the match (in his Prius!) won the match with a score of 93. He cleaned 7 out of the 10 stages. Very nice shooting! Two ordinary guys in a Prius.

    Here is my rifle:

    Nice setup. I'm a big 6X47L fan.

    6x47L has been, by far, my most temperamental and finicky caliber. This load finally works in this barrel. I think this is the 4th 6x47L barrel Iíve had made on 3 different actions. I donít want to change a thing at this point.

    My current calibers run the range, and I have settled on them for a variety of reasons.

    Varmint and fun calibers:

    20 Vartarg
    223 Ackley Improved
    6mmBR

    Competition:

    22-250 Ackley Improved
    6mmBRA
    6x47L

    Hunting and Competition:

    243 Ackley Improved
    6.5 Creedmoor (Manbun)
    308 Winchester
    284 Winchester

    Inherited rifles/calibers
    270 Winchester
    280 Remington
    300 Winchester Mag
    375 H&H

    Some I donít shoot, but I stay busy with the others. And the pistol calibers, and the shotgun.

    I have never tried H4350 but used RL17 in my 6x47 and switched to RL16 when it came out with CCI 450s.

    It has been a few years since I shot a match but last time I did, I zeroed at my range then took the rifle to the match.
    The day before the match we had some time so I checked zero again and shot a .28" 3-shot group right where I was aiming. Temperature was 22 degrees warmer.

    I ran some in service training and qualification for some court staff this afternoon. I shot the OPOTA 25 round qualification course with the M&P9 2.0C Iíve been carrying as a part time bailiff. I also shot the course with my Shield Plus and the above target is the same course fired with the S&W M&P 380 Bodyguard I frequently carry as a backup.

    I picked up some new accessories for the VP9 and took them for a spin on the plate rack
