The Sniper's Hide Team Challenge was this last weekend, looks like that's a 2017 schedule.  There's a Tactical Supply match in Naches this weekend though.

Going to be some heavy winds this weekend. Plan to shoot some practice. 20-30 mph should be humbling.

wind is where the beginners are separated from the experienced shooters.

I just started shooting longer range (400-800 yards) a few weeks ago and have a question for anyone who can help. I had an moa dial put on a vari-x II for my .243 win. I load 95 nosler btips to 3030 FPS and have my dope figured out to the plates at my bosses range which are at 300, 400, 570, and 760. My question is, with my dope figured out to these ranges, is there a way to figure out my dope in 50 yard increments with out setting targets up every 50 past 300? Iím guessing with the data I have I could put it in some sort of calculator and figure it out? Might be a dumb question and Iíd love to keep shooting to figure it out but setting targets at every distance isnít quite feasible. Thanks for any help you can give!

you can use any ballistic program and adjust muzzle velocity and bullet coefficent to get drops to match your measured actual.  Then just print out resulting chart for other distances.
