Photos from the May 2009 Sporting Rifle Match, Raton NM. We had a record turn-out of 33 shooters. I shot on the "silent" squad with three other experienced shooters and one newbie. The weather was fantastic; it didn't even start out cold. Wind conditions were pretty mild (0-3/4 value) for this location.

Here I am dialing for the longest shot of the match, 875 yards (I hit it).

Don't let your rifle fall down - it's a long way. Here J- shoots his AI-AWM chambered in 7mm RM.

Two identical AI-AWM's chambered in 7mm RM. The only difference is the model of suppressor and the scope. We were shooting the same bullet, the 162gr AMAX, though I didn't have enough and had to finish the match with some left over 168 Bergers.
