Sharpshooter Match Today

Later on today, in about...six hours, I will shoot in my second "Sharpshooter Shootout" match at my gun club. The targets consist of ten 1.5" diameter bullseyes around the perimeter with two sighter's in the middle. In practice yesterday I was able to put at least put nine out of ten shots in the black at 100 yards with my customized 10/22. I drilled the X out of one and broke the same ring in another, so I'm confident if I do my part, I'll do okay tomorrow. As far as winning, that's another story, but I'll give it my best shot. Hitting a 1.5" circle at 100 yards with a 40gn, round nose .22lr bullet, traveling at just over 1000 FPS is not as easy as it sounds...

Wish me luck!
