now—the 2012 NRA Long Range High Power Rifle title. His score of 1246-74X edged out Georgia’s John Whidden (a former 4-H shooter) who shot a 1245-73X, and North Carolina’s John Friguglietti who fired a 1245-63X. F-Class “artillerymen” joined the NRA Long Range match for the first time this year, firing in a separate division with different targets set up on the high end of the range. F-class, or “bench rest shooting in the grass,” follows the rules found on page 42 of the full bore rulebook: www.nrahq.org/compete/rules/ fullbore_07.pdf. F-Class equipment differs from Long Range by limiting the caliber to .35 or below and sophisticated rifle rests whose only restriction is “may not provide a mechanical method for returning it to its precise point of aim for the prior shot.” The targets also differ as follows:

Long Range,” said NRA’s High Power Rifle Match Director Sherri Judd. “A good portion of those competitors shot in this year’s America Match.” A biennial team event, this is the first time the America Match was conducted at Camp Perry. Coach Praslick’s AMU Team took top honors for both the Roumanian (all shot 199s) and Herrick (3 of the 4 shot perfect 200s) team matches. Members included Gallagher, Cooper, Green and Barnhart. John Whittaker’s Team won the famed Palma match with Steve and Shirley McGee (see SSUSA story), Lusty Cebula and Felix Solis scoring a 1775-88X, shot from the 800-, 900- and 1000-yard lines. Coach Hayes’ U.S. Rifle Team took second with a 1773-98X followed by Coach Liebetrau’s Under25 team who fired a 1773-89X. You may recall SSUSA’s story about the Farr Trophy: www.nxtbook.com/ nxtbooks/nra/ssusa_201112/index.php#/20.

This year’s Farr Trophy plaque went home with SGT Gus Dunfey who shot a 197-11X.
