Great article Kenny,
One just cannot remember all to scribble in my waterproof surveyors tablet/book when at the 1,000-yard line, shooting. If I could improve on just one thing it would be reading and dialing in for quartering head and tailwinds better; this alone plays extreme havoc when shooting over four deep ravines at our desert range, at 100+ degrees. Something about competing just thrills me to no end, competing against myself, pressing toward higher scores.

16# 45-2 7/8” pp-shooter.

The initial post on this thread is worthy of review.
