Shooting Sports USA - January 2020 - 11

What firearms do you use for competition?
I'm a die-hard fan of Kelbly's Big Bore Panda
actions-they are simply the best. The Kelbly
family are great supporters of mine and
provide the best customer service one could
ever want. (It helps that their shop is only
15 minutes from my house.) Brady Westling at
Bartlein Barrels makes sure that I always have
what's needed. As far as calibers go, I used to
shoot the 6.5x47 Lapua, but recently moved
to the 6BRX (it's what I won most of my
National titles with). For Palma and USNRT
team shooting, it's the .308 Win. However,
I'm a huge fan and advocate of .223 Rem. for
Palma and Fullbore. I shoot that as often as
I can. And of course, it's Berger bullets and
Lapua brass all the time for my ammunition.
Tell us about your range bag and what you
carry in it besides your firearms?
High Power Rifle shooters already have a
ton of gear with coats, mats and scopes. I
carry a relatively small 5.11 bag where I keep
my shooting glove, glasses, bottled water
and earplugs. I make sure to have an extra
trigger and firing pin in there, along with all
the tools I need to fix or tighten just about
anything on my rifle on the spot. It's a pretty
typical setup that is easy to carry to the firing
line and keep next to me while shooting.
What do you do in your free time?
Anyone who knows me will say just about all
my free time is spent at the rifle range. Chuck
and I run the Alliance Rifle Club in Malvern,
OH, where he is the Match Director. We
run nearly 50 matches per year locally and
travel to all the big matches, including the
Southwest Nationals in Phoenix, AZ, Orange
Blossom Regional in Florida, Mid-West

Palma in Lodi, WI, the NRA High Power Rifle
Nationals at Camp Atterbury, IN, the CMP
Nationals at Camp Perry, OH, and Spirit of
America in Raton, NM, at the NRA Whittington
Center. We also travel internationally to shoot
with the USNRT and Team USA F-T/R 2021
since Chuck also coaches for them. So not
much "free time" after all that shooting and
traveling. But that's the way we like it.
What would you tell someone interested in
finding out more about your sport?
For those interested in High Power shooting
of any kind (service rifle, sling or F-Class),
just show up at a local match. One of
the things I love about our sport is the
supportive and helpful nature of our
competitors. It's the only sport I know of
where competitors go out of their way to
help you-even if it means they are helping
you beat them. Just show up, meet people
and ask questions. Someone will probably
loan you equipment and a rifle, as well as
get you all the information you need to begin
having fun competing at matches. 
Any tips for new shooters?
Many people tell me, "I'll come out and
shoot a match when I get good enough."
That's just silly. Everyone started somewhere
and the only way to get better is by getting
out there and competing. We always
welcome new shooters and do everything to
help them get better. But if they never show
up, they'll never get that experience and
assistance. Don't be embarrassed because
you're not shooting world-class scores at
your initial matches-if you're interested and
find it fun, get out there and shoot matches,
even the Nationals. *
