John Bickar of Palo Alto shoots 2663

John Bickar a High Master from Palo Alto CA set a new personal best of 2663 at the Sunnyvale Rifle and Pistol club just south of San Francisco,  at this weeks labor day match. Congratulations John,you did what we all want ,but seldom or never do,

John does this with match grade ammo loaded on his Star Universal press, using Nosler jacketed bullets at 50 yards and  the 160 grain lead  swc for the short line. 

Come clean John, is this due to talent, premium pistols and the Star ammo or are you using a little "black magic?

I need to get my X-count up, so I’m interested but I have a question.  Does he come with food or do I have to feed him?

LOL, so proud. They grow up so fast *sniff*

Thanks everyone! I actually shot factory ASYM at the long line; I can't make ammo that good. But I did reload my short line ammo on my Star.

Congratulations to you John Bickar, I don't care what your X-count was. Points beat Xs any day unless there's a tie, 37 pts from perfect.

Great Shooting, John!

I, OTOH, am interested in Xs.  That score should have had at least 147 Xs, yes? Smile

I'll take 40 points wherever I can get them.

I'm entertaining offers. Whattya got?

Only 129. I mean, how is that even possible? The 10-ring is only like 2 inches wide!
