Near World-Record Shooting

OL's shooting editor almost breaks benchrest accuracy record

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!
