FROM THE BENCH


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


Competitions Temperatures might be below zero but we’re still shooting benchrest! Twenty-odd brave souls made a break from the Christmas festivities and took part in the UKBRA’s 600 yard benchrest competition at Diggle Ranges on December 27th – which is a good job, otherwise I’d have had nothing to write about!


This was round two of our winter series and in round one, Steve Dunn took an emphatic win, though ‘Remington Girl’ Toni Young placed second with her out-of-the-box 308 Remmy 700. Toni also won last year’s 600 yd Factory Championship with her remarkable Remmy but, today she wasn’t there so maybe that gave us a chance...


It was murky December Diggle day as Bruce Lenton sets up his 6BR Winchester but three new records were set.


Not really – we just took a drubbing from another Factory Sporter shooter! Darrel Evans and his 6.5x47 Accuracy International won not only Factory Sporter Class but Light Gun Class as well! Darrel’s 1.8 inch group was the smallest of the day and a new UKBRA record to boot – beating Phil Gibbon’s 2.2 incher! In fact, Darrel broke three records in total, the other two being the Factory Sporter Aggregate and the Light Gun Aggregate. A remarkable performance.
