Benchrest Shooters Canada Records Committee has awarded member Phil Nick a new Canadian Score record; Heavy Varmint 200 yards 249 – 9X shot August 29th, 2021 at Lake of the Woods Gun Club.
Phil broke the existing 200 yard record of 249 – 5X which has stood since 2005.
This feat was accomplished on a metric range which means Kenora shooters are handicapped by having to shoot almost 10% further against records set on a standard range measured in yards.
Phil’s score translates into hitting 24 out of 25 one inch diameter circles at 219 yards.
Congratulations Phil on a job well done.
