Long Range on the Gulf Coast

Here's an offer to all my friends here. If any ONE member here would like to try shooting in a practice match at 600 & 1000 yards, I will provide you with a loaner rifle, ammo, and any other gear you will need. All you have to bring is bug juice, boots/shoes you don't mind getting muddy, eye/ear protection and willingness to learn. Thumbs up

If you already have a suitable rifle and wish to attend you are welcome to bring it. I only have one loaner rifle though.

At the Pascagoula Shooting Club (Moss Point, MS) we will be holding a practice match on the second Sunday of February. Since this is a practice match there is no match fee.

Check http://www.pascagouladcm.com for more info.

Post here at least a week ahead of time if you are going to be there so I can make the squadding arrangements.

Wow, that is a very generous offer. I am afraid I can't take you up on it, but thanks just the same.

We had a big turn out for this season opening match. Great fun was had by all. Several new shooters gave the long range sport a try and are probably hooked.

Nobody from here showed up but the offer still stands. Big smile

Distances were 600y and 1000y. Each shot is marked and scored individually, no groups. The most common cartridges were (in no particular order) 6.5-284 Norma, .338 Lapua, 7mm Rem Mag, 7mm WSM, .308 Win. .300 Win Mag, .280 Rem, and .260 Rem.
