Update - I went on the Saturday and had an excellent time. As I got further out, I struggled with the wind, especially at 640 yds,

 

I've been on one of Bradley's days before and as before this day was well organised. The sleet made shooting in the afternoon quite challenging.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/sc/61ywejrhxhihhji/KtQChbsjKM the ranges are on the bottom left hand corner of the screen when you look at an individual photo.

 

I look forward to getting to another of Bradley's events next year and having a crack at the gongs.

 

Regards
