Well the SuperShoot has come and gone and I was there to see it. As always there were fantastically accurate rifles on the firing line and some of the world's top marksmen. (The
Russian team was there) One of the highlights was a 200 yard five shot group that measured a tiny .098" (less than tenth of an inch. Fired with a 10.5 lb. light varmint class rifle. The overall winner was a guy in his 70's and another shooter in his 70's won the 200 yard light varmint agg. with a series of groups that averaged well under a half inch, and he did it in gusty, switching winds. Which goes to show that shooting is a sport where us older fellows can compete and win. Attached is a photo of the well centered .098" group
