      We were all down in Duuuuurand this weekend. I'm an old Stout guy so I used to shoot over that way a lot more. A friend North of Menom about 40 minutes has a couple great places we can get a number of yardages at out past 1500. We try to shoot together a couple times a year on that side of the state. As said, there's a good crew around central Wi, marshfield - rapids - Wausau, hell all the way down to Milwaukee. Show up to one of the local shoots posted here or on FB and meet some people, then you will have to pick which matches you have time to go to. Lots of shooting events taking off in Wi in the last few years.

          Myronman3 - you are so lucky to be able to drive a few hours and hook up with some awesome steel shooting, most of all it is the camaraderie of the folks you will be with, we are so lucky to have a great group of steel shooters that just plain get along well and have a vast amount of good knowledge to pass along - that is the golden statement - our group is more about seeing another exceed his or hers own expectations then our own accomplishments or scores. We have folks that are gun builders, wildcatters and precision shooters from 100 yards out to ??? Infinity - some that will be hitting 2 miles under some heavy restraints, which is a whole new science class. So try to hook up, you will have a blast.

          Sorry that I didn't get a chance to say good bye at the Hilltop Hilton shoot, a good note I stayed standing upright all night. I must of been in the back visiting, it was good to see you and your sweetie I wish we had chance to get together some before your busy season. I know the New Mexico event has myself, Ed and Garrett somewhat distracted this year. Give me a holler when you get caught up in the shop and have a spot in the basement for a night cap it would be good for the mind to relax, have a couple relax some more and catch up some without driving. Cheers my good freind.

          Excellent shooting everyone at Durand it was a good day of pulling the trigger.
          Some stand outs with my tired mind that day
          Jason Ojah - had a great day all around with a new build and Ed's load and spare ammo - I believe he finished 2nd in the Sniper Gopher challenge - Dam proud.
          Gibson fired off a sweet round in the steel challenge - didn't take first but a sweet round without a doubt - congrats excellent shooting my freind!
          Merc - looking good with the new set up - keep up the good work and don't worry about the scores - focus on having fun at pulling the trigger yet pay attention to the little things it will all pay you back well, glad to have the opportunity to catch up and visit with you again. I know you know what your doing but I also know your taking it to the next step. Cheers
          Dave, way to get it done on the bottles - sweet. Congrats my good freind
          Garrett - what? Another great day of shooting without a doubt, looking foward to this May & June

          I had a few folks ask that day if all was ok, yes it was I may not of been myself, I felt like shit total crap from a lack of sleep and work stress but it was all of you and getting back behind the trigger that made it a great day pulling the trigger again!

          Cheers

            Alright folks who's going to the border wars match in Lodi this weekend? I didn't find a slot to shoot but I live 2 miles away and may just as well stop in. Be good to put a couple faces with the screen names.

              Oneshot, thank you so much for the kind words. I'm sure I can do better with practice. I always learn tons when I am out with you guys. I absolutely had a blast in Durand. Bummer you weren't feeling the best. Hopefully you keep feeing better! I love talking to you, Ed, Bob, and Garrett and hear about what your doing for the KO2M. Geno is also a wealth of information. I'm very blessed to have such a great group of guys to learn from. Rotojager has also been a tremendous help in getting me squared away.

              Zick, I'm pretty sure Rotojager will be there. Not sure about anyone else.

                i'm looking forward to getting together with some of you, and at least seeing how other guys do things. as long as i know in advance, i should be able to make it. informal gatherings appeal to me more than formal stuff.

                soonest i get to stretch the legs of my rifle is the end of may...... a group of former infantry guys gather in west virginia and we eat, shoot, and catch up. we shoot from mountain side to mountain side...and it's a hoot. it's the longest i've been able to shoot since Bragg, and i enjoy it.

                i'm looking foward to linking up.

                      Well, I should apologize for having to cut out so hastily. Babysitter problem and being 3 hours from home... shit happens. Once again it was an awesome time at the Hilltop shoot! Great weather for yet another year and great friends make for a perfect time. Jamie had a good time and is looking forward to doing it again. I'll make sure things in my end go more smoothly next year in my end.

                      Jeff, you're welcome down anytime! Just give me a heads up and I should be able to free up an evening. Not sure if I'll get the bar finished in the basement but the fridge is down there so the drinks will be cold. I pull out the 15th so after that it'll be August till I see my place again and only for a week until October again. Little Cash upgraded to a queen bed this spring so we have another place for adults to crash. Plenty of room for about a full truckload.

                      I will make the call about going to Racine on Friday evening. If the weather is total crap I might pass. Been spending too much time working in the rain lately. And snow today, wtf?!
                      Life is meant to be spent not saved!

                              Awful quiet around here lately. Anybody slinging lead? I went out today and the bastards working the quarry I shoot in put the finish gravel pile right in the middle of my longest lane. Keys are in the loader but it's a days worth of dicking around and it's going to be hot as the devils beanbag tomorrow. Hope everybody's well.

                                Not much shooting here. Gone to the local range with a friend a couple times, but that was for fun and to help her shoot more. I think the next comp I'm doing is early July. Been trying to get the boat out more and do some more fishing.

                                    Took the AX308 and Defiance Deviant out today to try to shake out some of the issues I've been seeing with Prime 6.5 Creedmoor factory ammo. Didn't turn out the way I'd like. SD's were way too high for my liking. Deciding to switch over to an OCW test for my AX308 with 6.5 Creedmoor barrel. Ran some Nosler RDF 140s over H4350, the winning load was 42.7g with an ES of 17 and SD of 6.6.

                                      Its been a crazy busy year with work, other then that Ed, Garrett and I have been busy working with the 2 mile rifles, especially my Nebraska build it has been challenging. A few of us did the Grinder that was fun. Hopefully we can all hook up later this summer for a catch up.

                                      Cheers

                                        I'll probably only have time to do one or two more Border Wars matches this summer and that'll probably be it before I start gearing up for the GAP Grind. It's amazing how fast summer fills up.

                                                  How about a report from the King of Two Mile?! I have a little info and some congrats given but how about you fill in the WI crowd about the skill level of some of our best ELR shooters.
