I would build a berm for steel as well but feel sure you have a safe backstop. I will lose this 1 mile range in January when we finish up this job.

I hope I can slow down a little with work and shoot more matches this next year.

Yeah I have been wanting to build one but lack the time. Spotting misses in the heat with nothing but a green back drop is impossible.

Is the pic backwards or are you wrong handed?

never tried that yet, but i did ear hole a nutra at about 75 yards at night one handed standing in a boat with a ruger .22 pistol while holding a flashlight in the other hand,, with witnesses in the boat after calling the shot!

after that i just felt that clay pigeons at 1000 yards was not much of a challenge...,

i doubt i can make the pigeon shot now, but the nutra shot was real and i was a much younger man then !

What stock pouch is that? Looks like it provides a good cheek weld also

Looks like a Triad Tactical cheek pad. If it isnít, Triad is a top notch selection worth checking out.
