Well ... The "Odyssey" is nearing completion , and I am very proud to announce that I have received my confirmation as a competitor in the 2018 Berger Southwest Nationals . Yes ; Boys & Girls , A Mosin actioned target rifle will be competing in one of the biggest rifle matches in the country . Against some of the best shooters on the planet .

In preparation , I am shooting 100 rounds a week till next Feb , and my scoring is getting more consistent with changing wind conditions .The majority of my practice is being done at 600 yards , as I'm a Mid-range competitor , because the 1,000 yard slots had already been filled when my entry was filed . This whole project was based on the idea that a solid , tight M-N actioned rifle could compete equally with some of the finest high-dollar , custom target rifles made . Now ; I'm going to get the chance to do it , and looking forward to it .

Odd thing occurring though . My "X" count is going down slowly , the more I practice , but my total scores are coming up . I'm dropping fewer points . Shooting fewer 9's & 8's . Do I expect to win my class ? No ! But I do expect to be competitive . Keep ya posted .
If not me.....Who ?
If not now ....When ?

Great shooting. I can't wait to hear of your results at the Berger SWN. I would like to computer there too. Some day.
