Reever Wins Match with New 108gr Bergers

Forum member Danny Reever gave the new Berger 108s (See Bulletin, 6/23/07) their first taste of competition this past weekend at Shippensburg, PA. Shooting his 6BR in the Heavy Custom class, Danny won the match. Along the way he posted an impressive 1.509″ group at 500 meters (547 yards). Here’s what Danny had to say: “Yesterday I shot the new 108s in Shippensburg’s monthly Ground Hog Match. Conditions were a bit rough with switchy, gusting winds in the 5-10 MPH range and some very heavy mirage at all yardages being particularly bad at 300 and 500 meters. In fact at 500 meters you couldn’t see the scoring rings on the target let alone bullet holes. At 500 meters (547 yards) I managed a 41 score and a real nice 1.509 group considering the conditions. My total score was a 140 out of a possible 150 which was good enough for first place in Heavy Custom class for the day. This was the 108’s initial baptism by fire so to speak and they came through with flying colors.”

Youth Hunter Challenge in Raton

From July 23-27, the NRA will be hosting its 22nd Annual NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) at the Whittington Center, in Raton, NM. The cost is $425 for each team of youth participant and adult coach.

Recognized as the most comprehensive youth hunting program in North America, the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) offers outdoor skills and safety training for young hunters. Open to those who have completed hunter-safety training at the state-level, the program is conducted under simulated hunting conditions to provide the best practical environment for reinforcing and testing a young hunter’s skills.

From rifle, bow and muzzleloader shooting at life-sized targets, to wildlife identification, to map-and-compass orienteering and more, YHEC participants get hands-on training in eight skills areas, and all types of game. State- and provincial-level YHEC programs, hosted by volunteer instructors, draw an estimated 50,000 youths each year. Top ranked individuals advance to the annual NRA International Youth Hunter Education Challenge, the pinnacle of the program. Since its inception in 1985, YHEC has reached more than a million young sportsmen and women.

For Youth Hunter Education Challenge info call NRA Hunter Services at (703) 267-1503 or vist the NRA’s Website. Here’s a link for the YHEC official rules pamphlet.
