The shooter is Dave Gullo and the target is located on the silhouette range at Whittington Center in Raton NM.
Dave just won our Regional Creedmoor this past weekend in Phoenix.
The video makes the shot out to be really something but it is all in a days work for a competitive Black Powder Target Rifle shooter like Dave and the guys that shot here last week.

That's some great shooting . Twice in a row. Who said BPCR is a waste of time. Maybe if I practice more I can do that before I pass to the Great Range in the Sky. Mygila

Interesting that Dave has his Borshardt's forearm resting in the cross sticks.

So much for barrel harmonics and null spots....

Steve,
I shot with Dave in the American Creedmoor Cup on Thursday and he was resting the barrel on the sticks just in front of the forearm. He told me that was something new for him as he normally rested the forearm on the sticks. I don't know if he went back to the forearm during the Regional Match or continued to shoot off the barrel but he managed to win.
Did you see my story from the regional at www.arizonasharpshooters.com

I think Dave has figured out how to "WILL" his shots into the center.

good fellow, ....No?

Dan

If you've ever ordered anything from Buffalo Arms then you've got it from Dave Gullo. I've had a few things from him and his company is spot on, delivery and quality wise. He got some stuff to me in a week! I'd have a job to get suppliers here in the UK to supply stuff in a month :shock: Explain that!

Steve R--

I did see your report and both sets of results.

It sounds like y'all were kinda hot, and dry. And a good introduction for Dave to your quality wiping rods. I noticed in the video that not only was his forearm on the sticks, but he had a BT lying on the mat as well, clearly suggesting he hadn't yet been introduced to the civilized art of wiping.

Ranch,

Click on the website in the post made by Steve R.; then click on "results" and viola--the whole shebang.

Got that .40/65 shootin' them all in the same hole yet? I'm kinda toying with the thought of getting one of those in a Shiloh heavy octagon; kinda of heavier bench gun to shoot the Wyoming Schutzen/NRC bench matches. A dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

Regards

That film of Dave G. shooting at that Buffalo in Raton was taken about 10 years ago or right after he won the first World championships in South Africa. Ripleys believe it or not did that filming, if I remember correct. If any of you know anything about long range shooting you would find it pretty amazing that 3 out 4 of those shots are in the black, first shot was in the white. The yardage was 1250, I think.

The last time I shot with Dave he was resting his rifle on the forearm. To be able to shot off the forearm takes a steady trigger release and shooting form, as it isn't the most stable of methods, even though it is thought as the best method. Shooting at the muzzle is a more stable position.

Well, thanks for the enlightenment guys! I'm aware of Dave Gullo but do not know him of course. His legend precedes him I suppose. :lol: Now I've got a face for the name. Funny, he says in the video he's amazed you can shoot like that with iron sights. Not near as much as me. :lol:
