The first US National Metric Metallic Sight National Championship is in the book and the Great Scorer in the Sky has inscribed Kevin Nevius in the champion’s spot.
Kevin shot an 1170 using Lapua Xact, a Walter action, his own handmade wooden stock and a lija barrel.
It was an overcast day which promised, but did not deliver, rain. The heat and humidity were up there and the winds were playful.
While the turn out was in the mid 40s the concentration of high caliber, pardon the pun, shooters was great.
I’ll have more detail and scores tomorrow.
