Near World-Record Shooting

OL's shooting editor almost breaks benchrest accuracy record

Outdoor Life Online Editor

This just in...At the recent World Benchrest Championships in upstate NY, Jim Carmichel turned in an unbelievable 5-shot group that measured a scant .056 inch, narrowly missing the current world record by a few thousandths of an inch.

Jim was shooting a 6mm PPC benchrest rifle of his own design.

More details (and photos) to come from Jim, but what a group...it's literally one hole at 100 yards!
