 John I got lucky I suppose. My wife has always liked to hunt and shoot, but she was a bit aloof on this stuff. Finally talked her into doing a bit of spotting for me. Then she thought she'ld maybe try some shooting during the prematch practicing, after she watched gals like Linda Klinden, and Kathy Coates making things ring. Now she's shooting her own 40-65 and having more fun than she'll admit too.

 Oh by the way she's got 3 closets full of clothes and lets me have about 1/2 of the small one for the stuff I could stuff in my duffel. ::)  That Marcos woman don't know squat about shoes. :faint:

John Boy,

Thank you for the kind words.  Glad to see that you made it home aok.
No doubt, those were some very challenging  :o conditions !  Next time, we'll try to pick a few days when the weather is a bit more cooperative ;D .

I'll be heading back to Ridgway for the Cast Bullet Rifle Silhouette Championship June 9, 10, 11.  What a fuunnn time that will be. ;D  ;D

Ed, I can't give you an honest answer.  The winds on some day changed so frequently, windage adjustment was all over the place.

The Pedersoli lower scale has 10 spaces - each space is 4 MOA (4" @ 100) ... Do remember one adjustment was 4 spaces which would be 13.3 feet - 16 MOA
Regards
John
