Mason and I shot at the World Championships June 30th-July 2nd 2012, back at the Whittington Center. Mason won Junior World Champion and I won Heavy Class Group World Champion. We where both shooting the McMillan HBR single shot rifle with my 770 grain solid brass multiband bullet. Mason had an average of 11.302" and scored 286 of 300 with 5 Xs. I averaged 7.458", that is six, five shot groups at 1000 yards. I also won Third in Hunter with the new Armalite AR50 National Match rifle with a 15.240" average. This year I was the Match Director and found that good help is easy to find. We shot the 600 yard practical match and semi-auto Sat June 30th. This year Barrett Sponsored the 600 yard events and donated 600 rounds of ball ammo for us to shoot. Thanks to Barrett for their support! www.Barrett.net

My family and I made it back to the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM for the Spring Regional FCSA 1000 yard Match. As usual there was good food, good people, and lots of shooting.
My Son Mason shot our new McMillan Heavy Bench Rest rifle and won 2nd in score and 3rd in group in Unlimited Class shooting with the adults. His best five shot groups where 6.38" and 7.50" with my 770 grain multiband bullet.
I won First Place in the Semi-Auto 1000 yard class shooting my 770 grain bullet in the Barrett M82a1. Sat I shot a 44, 46, and a 44 out of 50 with an 18", 18 3/4 , and 20" group. The wind was challenging with 20-40 mph and gust over 50 mph!
