This past weekend was the October long range rifle match with the Northern California Practical Precision Rifle Club (NCPPRC). It was the fourth match of theirs that I've competed in, and it was my best performance yet. I'm still not where I want to be in terms of performance (winning!), but I've been steadily improving, going from dead last in my first match to middle of the pack this last time. Out of 44 competitors I placed 21st.
I was shooting the new load I've been working on, and while the load seemed quite accurate my dope wasn't. Fortunately I discovered this during the Saturday practice so I was able to compensate during the Sunday match. I use the "iSnipe" application on my iPhone to compute the ballistics, and I've been pretty happy with it until now. For some reason it wasn't suggesting enough elevation to the point that at 1,000 yards I had to add 0.3 mils to the value computed by iSnipe to get the correct elevation. I'm not sure why my actual performance is so different from their projected data, but I've sent them an email to see if they have any ideas.
