July 27, 2009 --- Sacramento NBRSA 1000-yard Bench Rest Match
The match is three five shot targets using a “light gun” under 17#s, and three 10 shot targets shot with a “heavy gun” no weight limit. The maximum is a 35 caliber. NO feedback on the shots fired.
I used my Palma test rifle which weights under 16# for both light and heavy guns.
Match Results: LG = light gun, HG = heavy gun. 1000 yard Bench rest very small targets.
Normal Sacramento winds.........
1st place in LG three target group aggregate = 8.084”
3rd place in LG single target score = 47-01X
1st place in HG three target groups aggregate = 10.455”
1st place in HG three target score = 273-03X
1st place in six target group aggregate = 9.269” --- 45 rounds.

It is fun to beat 6.5-284 and 338 Lapua mags with a palma rifle
