VINCE’S REGULAR COLUMN WHEREBY ACCURACY NUTS CAN KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THE ACTIVITIES OF THE UKBRA


Competitions For our second weekend of the UKBRA 100/1000 yard Championships, at least the weather had warmed up a little. Even the wind behaved itself for Saturday’s 100 yard shoot and I was feeling rather smug with my 0.223 incher in Warm-up – only to find that there were no less than three shooters with smaller groups! However, in the end I was rewarded with my first sub. ‘two’ agg. for about five years and small-group award in the process.


Darrel Evans was shooting again following a brief absence due to back problems – much to the chagrin of his competitors and indeed, it was ‘business as usual’ with Darrel taking a comfortable win in Factory Sporter and shooting an impressively small .224 inch group in the process.


Results: Heavy Varmint: 1st Vince Bottomley 6PPC TGP BAT


The 1000 yard firing line

Factory Sporter: 1st Darrel Evans 6PPC Sako 0.364 inches 2nd Jack Mills 223 Browning 0.7164 3rd Andy Woolley 6PPC Sako 0.8402


Small group: Darrel Evans 0.224 inches


For Sunday’s 1000 yard shoot it was a different story – yes, the forecasted fine weather hadn’t let us down but the wind was horrendously gusty. Sub. ten-inch groups were few and many shooters turned-in twenty- inch plus groups! Nonetheless, it was possible – with a bit of luck and a sound technique – to shoot small groups. Phil
