1000-yard Benchrest competition is the ultimate challenge for man and gun. When conditions are right, a good shooter can put ten shots into a pattern you can cover with the palm of your hand. But a wind shift can also throw a shot off-target completely. That’s why 1000-yard shooting is as much a mental game as it is a test of equipment. Like golf, the pursuit of perfection is never-ending. Each range, each match, is a new test of a shooter’s abilities, and his gun’s accuracy.

Martini-Enfield Match rifle, also chambered in #2 Musket, this one with 90grs of Fg behind a 530gr Minigroove bullet.
The MLAIC rules are applicable, 13 shots in 30 minutes, 10 best for score."

Souppes, 86 miles south of Paris

Ranges here like to conform, to a slow 4 second rule between each shot. A hunter shooting rabbit may decide with a Ruger 10/20 as an example to string his shots whilst in pursuit..
