How do you practice for the Quigley? my range is only 300 yds. Does any one know the sizes of the targets at each range?

Your profile does not show your location---- If withing driving distance, I was going to invite you--and anyone that wants to----to come shoot our new range near Price, Utah. It will be open soon with a variety of targets and ranges. We have a 1000 yard range--a cowboy town-(in a sperate area of course--and shooting venues for just about any interest. It is to be a public range and we will be hoping to host BPCR events to which all would be invited.

Anyone interested should contact Don Burge at dburge@emerytelcom.net for information.

Start shooting at a 5 gallon bucket off hand on the 300 yd range. You'll be 50 yds short for the Q but the practice will be good.
You might want to chrono your loads and use a good ballistics calculator to figure the elevation you'll need to go from the 350 to 750 with stops at about 100 yds between the near and far.
Then try and get there a day or so early to get some practice shooting in and get close to elevation sight settings. Windage changes regularly so you'll just have to dope that as it happens during the match.

atta boy Dean :lol: :lol: :lol:

1000 rounds is about right.

The first time I went to the Q, I only took 150 rounds ..... I didn't have any fun at all, except for meeting alot of good people. Take lots of ammo.

Your crescent butplate should be fine.
What they're talking about is the target type of hooked butts , such as found on Schuetzen rifles.
