Think one of Kilo-Sierra scores at a M1 match was 299 out of 300!

I'm a old guy (78) The CMP Springfield vintage shoot was on my "Bucket List items" I had lots of FUN & met some REALLY knolagable people in the flesh, through the CMP board! I did finished low, but by no means last!

Standing 10 rounds performance was poor. as was rapid fire prone.
No serious practice, which was totally my fault . Do to a close family member's health issues. I should have started practicing a month earlier....
I had the TIME! Even with my age against me, I think I could have done some what better.

PLEASE start early & PRACTICE ....It's a known FACT you get more LUCKY, when you PRACTICE more!
I have bought a new 100 mm spotting scope so I cam see holes at 200 yards clearly. Also ordered more 110 & 125 grain bullets, as they are very accurate & do reduce recoil.

Keep them all in the TEN ring!

Don't let broom lead you to think he got to meet all the intreting people at Perry, hes a great guy and I enjoyed all the stories!

These 110/125 grain loads are it. Dont waste a ton time developing a load for you 03 or your garand. Spend it shooting. I run 125 smk with 49.5 varget. Shoots great in any of my `06 rifles I shot a 99 slow prone with an as issued garand with this load

Hi hebes405,

I'm sure you have a bunch of story's too! Heck you shoot better then me NOW! Since I'm78 now, I might have a few more story's at this time!
Wild man that you are, I'm sure you will surpass me soon!

Honestly fellow posters, it worth the trip to just meet these FINE FELLOWS & LADIES. I have to say EVERYONE I met there, was GREAT & willing to help each other out with a missing tool or third hand if needed!

SPORTSMANSHIP at it's BEST! Shooting the match's with some of the BEST in the country is just icing on the cake!

Enjoy life,
broom

I have been asked what is my favorite wood gun. Usually my answer is "Whatever wood gun I'm holding when you ask me that question". Fact is ...I like them all BUT...if I had to choose just one, it would be my 03a3.

I'm big on hydration but I could feel overheating coming on and called it done. BTW....one of the first affects of heading toward dehydration is it affects your eyesight. Blurring that front sight makes for some bad shots.
Make sure you slam as much fluids as you can during these hot days, especially for matches. Start hydrating days before a match. OK...I'm off the soapbox.

I rebarreled one of my SR's and swapped scopes. So I sighted in both SR's, and shot my MM, 03a3, and 2 garands. Didn't shoot this load in my 1917 because it was 97 degrees and had just plain had enough for one day.

EDIT: I have been asked...
The front sight is a USMC #10
The black stuff on the handguard is Creedmoor grip spray (WAY better than Firm Grip)
I usually use an Eric Hollis sling (best I've ever used) but the pic has a Ron Brown on it.
I find "THE load" and sight it in for 200yds and leave it alone, to the point I put a drop of clear nail polish on the little tang so it doesn't move. I don't shoot this other than 200yd matches.



What's a USMC #10? I am new to the '03 having not long ago bought a Smith-Corona 'A3 from the CMP.

That may be a good email but I ordered one this spring from him at dcm450shtr@gmail.com

The sights are excellent quality. If you shoot COM, you will be pleased
