Valdada 40x Scoville stocks Panda and Bat Actions Bartlien barrels, Buky and Harris Tuners
What’s your highest shooting accomplishment thus far?
(Small group, Aggregate or Grand win, 2-Gun, etc, win)
Finished 2nd in SE regional Championship 2 gun a couple years ago is my highest accomplishment. Shot 2 teen aggs. that weekend
I have won several yardages and a couple Grand Aggs. But I still haven’t gotten a 2gun win
Doing my own barrel work 3 or so years ago was a big accomplishment
I then began making my own bullets, been a little learning curve with the bullets
No better thing in this sport than controlling these two things yourself.
Then you can concentrate on learning how that combination behaves
Greatest benchrest memory to date?
First win a few years ago in Unaka Tenn. 200yds
Bart and I were really close, down to the last target I just barely beat him
Funniest Benchrest memory to date?
Brady Knight arguing with Scotty Grimes on the line. Those two always kept everyone laughing
What are your current/future shooting goals?
A 2- gun win
