    LOL! — she’s silky smooth – 👍
    but I really like my Protector 3″ top- had it on my one piece rest – 
    swapped the Edgewood over to the one piece rest –
    wanted to shoot this evening -but noticed half dozen stockade slats had come off due to the storms – so I’m soaking wet from tacking board 😩
    And now to tired to shoot!
    i think I’ll try again in the AM

    Installed new lower scope rings last night, I like to have scope down close to barrel. Sighted the scope in and shot one card.

    Shot every class today – very windy conditions though- gusts to 20 mph and switching back and forth-making reads difficult 

    Chip Smiths new Front Rest – 
    ‘very precise – like an operating room instrument –




    shot a 741 with 29 X s in LV – forgot to photo though —–
    need to get things ready for this weekend -and then pack and ship next week 
    cheers

    Thanks Jimmy – trying to cram in as much practice as I can -( hopefully don’t wear out the gun) ? Seems like to much practice leads to malfunctions ??
    I’ve been bugging venders about items I’d ordered awhile ago- times running out —-
    ‘today was a good day for practice in that the winds were crazy- coming from all directions – even rocking my giant umbrella –
    but LV is the real challenge – man those little pellets get pushed around!
    sure hope my other stuff shows up soon-
    I’ve decided to ship the big stuff via FedEx -eliminate  the need for long TSA check outs

    Thank you Campy, this gun really seems to like those 13.4 jsb’s, next will be to see if they group @ 50yds. this gun shoots better than I can shoot it! I need one of you benchrest shooters to really see what it can do! My next purchase will be a Gen.2 BM-500, maybe soon?

    Frank, you and Ken are my heros. I just can’t get a damn 250 to save my arse!
    I’m soaking wet and wouldn’t have even gone outside and tried it if I had realized how hot it was? But the wind was calm so I tried my luck?

    I actually put the Thomas on the Bald Eagle rest with a 3 inch bottom plate attached to the anschutz rail. Then put it on the picnic table and realized how wobbly it was, so I used another more stable table I had instead.

    Now my first card was really disheartening. When I hit the nine ring in the first bull, I went bezerk and shot it two more times for good measure!!!!!LOL
    Then on bull 4 and 5……WTF??????? Shot those two bulls again for good measure and ten ringed and x’ed em. Then boom…..17 ten rings in a row!  I have no idea what happened on 4 & 5? No wind to blame? I didn’t weigh or sort? Maybe that was it?

    Then the second card I shot a 247 with 13 x’s my highest score to date. Damn that 250 club is hard to get into. Gotta build me a custom bench!

    Lookin Good Jimmy- the trick is practice and having a really stable shooting platform – in my humble opinion, you’ve got to have a solid (preferably concrete ) shooting table –
    but a wobbly bench will ruin even the best of setups –
    good Shooting nomojo65 ! 
    Keep em coming guys! 
    Peace and bullseye Grease!
    CK 
    P.S 
    and concrete is relatively inexpensive once you make a form. Then simply pour the top.and use cinder blocks as the pedestal base
    im surprised that Gun clubs still use wooden benches – seems like it would be more labor intensive to build wood benches ?

    Jimmy keep at it, don’t listen to Frank, wobbly benches is were it at! At home I use a Caldwell StableTable… Stable my ass!!! Lol, my home range benches are not rock solid, but they hold a gun up, A sniper will lay in a bed of thorns and still make his kill. Imagine what your score will be on a solid surface? Hehe
