Big Al Posted February 5, 2018 Report Share Posted February 5, 2018 Yesterday was the fifth round of the six round UKBRA 600yd Benchrest Championship at Diggle Ranges near Oldham. As well as competing in the Heavy Gun class myself I had two customers shooting with rifles I built for them, one in Light Gun, the other with me in Heavy Gun. It was another very successful day in many ways. Im delighted to congratulate Simon Mearns aka Si Snipe on his second consecutive Light Gun class win, along with his other good results this season he enters into the final round with a fighting chance of wining the Light Gun Championship at his first attempt - good luck for next month Simon. If one success wasn't enough Darrel Evans aka Foxingtonight took the Heavy Gun class win while also breaking the UKBRA 600yd Heavy Gun Aggregate by setting a new 4x 5 shot aggregate record of 2.290" - this included 5 shot groups of 1.181" and 1.765" This additional new UKBRA record means rifles I have built now hold 4 of the 8 available long range benchrest records, Im very pleased with this considering its my first season of competitive shooting and/or building competition rifles for others. If those great success stories weren't enough for one day the Good Lord also smiled on me again. I was able to secure enough points with a third place in the Heavy Gun class today to win the UKBRA 600yd Heavy Gun Championship with one round still remaining. To add the 600yd Heavy Gun Championship to my recent 1000yd Heavy Gun Championship success is something I am very proud of. Ten months ago I had never fired a rifle in any kind of competition, now Im a double UKBRA Heavy Gun Champion and also a double Heavy Gun record holder at 1000yds. Thanks must go to all of you guys who have followed my exploits via my Facebook page and who continually provide me with the inspiration and motivation to be successful. Also many thanks to those of you who have put your trust in me with your rifles, as always there will only ever be one standard, a standard that is proving itself in the highest levels of UK long range precision rifle shooting. My passion is for building accurate rifles of all kinds so dont think I only build competition rifles, far from it. Be assured that whether you need a rifle for stalking, vermin control, long range shooting of any kind or the highest level of competition shooting I will build it with the same level of care, attention to detail and ultimate precision that I give to my own successful rifles. Variety is the spice of life but there will only ever be one standard! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
