Mr. VVRider with a fantastic score of 1750.

Nice Shooting!

You guys are savages.

Marlin 925 (the Shamrock shoot was a good excuse to get it) with a Jard 2.5 lb trigger spring, stock T-900 trigger, UTG bipod, and about 500 rounds through the barrel. I used a Bushnell 4x20 wide angle scope sitting at a bench and shot Wolf .22 LR Target Match ammo.

Congrats to Mr. WRider (I don't even think I know who that is...)

Are you going to post the other scores? I want to see how badly I sucked compared to everyone else. ;)

Woo Hoo I had luck on my side for a change. I didn't think I would ever get a top score in a postal shoot.
Thanks everyone.

How do I go about getting a target for the next match, and are there any caliber restrictions.

When we start a new one we will announce it here in this subforum and post the printable targets as well. Caliber restrictions vary from match to match.
