Happy to report that Hugh Williamson and I had a great result at the Cactus Classic shooting HWP Barrels.

Hugh won the LV 100 and I won the LV 200. In the 2-Gun Hugh was 5th and I was 4th.

Spot the two Canadians in the attached photo!


You can add Kenora Lake of the Woods Gun Club to the sponsor list. Many thanks to the Kenora gang, and to all the sponsors.

Thanks for the the nice comments. We had a great time. There were 7 Canadians attending: Hugh W, Rick P, Doug T, Vic E, Tyler E, Rob S and Steve H. Canada is well represented at these events.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the slippery slope! A name would be good here, if you don't mind posting it. I am sure everyone is wondering who the new guy in Selkirk is!

We are running BR101 in Lethbridge and Rocky Mountain House this year. In years past we have run it in Calgary and Medicine Hat as well. It has been a great format for getting shooters introduced to BR.

The BR community is small and everyone knows everyone, hence the high level of trust. It was a good choice to have Mike Bryant build you a rifle as he is a terrific gunsmith and a super nice guy. Glad you found Calvin, a mentor will save you years on the learning curve, and thousands of misspent dollars.

There will be about 12 of us from out West invade Selkirk for the Nationals, I look forward to meeting you as I am sure the rest of the mob does as well.

Team Canada has garnered a number of Sponsorships to assist with the costs of attending this event, for that I expressly want to thank the following entities:

Alberta Provincial Rifle Association
Rosebud Silhouette & Benchrest Club
Bench Rest Shooters Canada
Plenty O Patches
Hugh Williamson Precision
Nomad Aviation
Pollock Aviation
Stinger Ballistics
Jiffy Lube

All in, the cost for Team Canada to attend this event is in the neighbourhood of $70,000.  Once we factor in flights, hotels, entry fees, bus transportation, etc for 12 shooters, it adds up very quickly.

If any company or individual has an interest in helping out financially, the team members would really appreciate it! Interested parties should contact me at

We have had some adjustments to the World Team for France.

As of today the following shooters comprise Team Canada.

I can see this post. The site has a bug where it doesn't like " or ' in the posts and seems to forget everything after those characters. There will be an upgrade in the coming week or so, and hopefully that bug goes away at that time.

Thanks to Scott for getting us up and running again! Kudos to him for persisting until the problem was resolved.

I don't have paper copies, but I have digital copies. They are large files. I will see if I can get them in to a dropbox and send you a link.

Anybody else that wants a link to the dropbox can email me:

As far as equipment specific to each record we don't really maintain that information, although with a bit of digging it may be available. Pre internet days equipment lists were published in the BRSC newsletter that was mailed to members. Post internet days the equipment list was published online.

For the group shooting records, the single target records are noted in the measured group size on each target. The aggregate records are noted as an average of the 5 target's measurement in moa. Not a "true" moa since it is just divided by 2 for 200 yard aggregates, and divided by 3 for 300 yard aggregates. This sport is pre digital era and for simplicity they did not use the true moa (1.047" at 100 yards) to calculate scores. It was all calculated by hand back in the day.

Note any potential record targets are sent to a 3 person record committee who average their 3 measurements to give a final measurement for consideration against the existing record.

Hope that helps.

Well it is certainly getting a lot harder to break records in the BRSC, but I am pleased to announce that Wayne Miller managed to shoot a .058" 5-shot group at 100 yards in the Unlimited Class back on June 11, 2022 at the Rosebud Heavy Iron Shoot. Kudos to Wayne on a job well done.

Updated 2022 record book is attached.

We do allow camping at Rosebud for competitors. Contact me to discuss what the actual arrangements are.

 Up to 70 maybe even 75 in a 13.5 twist. Beyond that you go in to uncharted waters. Only way to know will be to try it.

Kelly, the trigger won't be affected. Dry firing a few times is no issue on the firing pin, hundreds of dry firings I would get snap caps that are designed for repeated firing pin impacts. I think Sinclair/Brownells had some brass ones with a little spring loaded impact area.

Kelly, double check with Kelbly, but I think it is the same as a Rem 700 spring. That should give you a few more options.
