Williamsport 1000-Yard World Open July 14-15

If you want to test your long-range shooting skills against some of the best shooters in the country (including our own Jason Baney), head to Pennsylvania in two weeks for the Williamsport World Open. Shooters will compete in Light Gun and Heavy Gun classes for a host of prizes including scopes, actions, and barrels. Sponsors include Nightforce Scopes, BAT Machine, and Bartlein, Hart, and Krieger barrel-makers, among many others. In addition, the Original Pennsylvania 1000 Yard Club will give $1000.00 CASH to anyone breaking the 3.151″ Ten (10) Shot Heavy Benchrest Class World Record during this event. Also for 2007, this will apply as well to anyone breaking the 3.835″ Light Gun group record.

Last year Jason won the Heavy Gun championship shooting his 16-lb 6BR with Reloader 15 and Clinch River 106s. That was an amazing accomplishment considering he was competing against 60- and 70-pound guns driving ultra-high BC bullets with “big boomer” cartridges. The schedule of events will be: Saturday Morning – Light Gun Match One; Saturday Afternoon – Heavy Gun Match One; Sunday Morning – Heavy Gun Match Two; Sunday Afternoon – Light Gun Match Two. Complete Event info, including Course of Fire, Rules, and a list of nearby motels, is found on the World Open Webpage, or contact Matt Dienes, 724-479-0790.
