Williamsport Opens Season this Weekend

The Williamsport Club kicks off its long-range benchrest season this weekend. Light Guns will shoot on Saturday, May 3, while Heavy Guns compete on Sunday, May 4. Cold, windy conditions are predicted–but serious shooters won’t miss this chance to dust off their bench guns after the long winter. Assistant Editor Jason Baney will be shooting his 6BR, and his gunsmith, Mark King, may try out a radically long-throated, short-barreled 6BR burning H4895. This season, it should be interesting to see how the small “sixes” fare against the big 30s at 1000 yards.
