New 200 yard bench rest record.

I'm not in to bench rest shooting, but I got to admit this is some hard holding.

Frenchman sets new 200 yard bench rest record, shoots a record .089 group using a 6mmPPC.

That's pretty close to a one hole group, trying to measure a .089 group after using .243 bullets would be hard enough.

Good shooting there Mr. Carlos Pacheco.

As an aside a week ago at the IBS NY state championships @ Camillus NY 2 100 yard world records were broken, the HV 5/100 record which stood for 30 years was likely [upon verification] broken by shooter/BR gunsmith Jim Borden and is noteworthy because it was the smallest group ever fired from a gun resting on bags not a machine rest. It was .046". On the same relay I shot a .134" and mine looked huge.

Yup, the 6ppc is tough to beat at short range. I wonder how many times that group has been measured so far. I'm guessing many.

Makes you wonder why the French suck at waging war.
