Local man (Glen Kulzer) sets new I.B.S. 1,000 yard heavy gun 10 shot record.
From our small town here in SW Montana comes a competitor who just shot a 10 shot group at 1,000 yards that measured 2.695"!
This pending new world record was set at the Deep Creek Range near Missoula, Montana.
I saw a copy of the record group and am just stunned that such an amazingly small grouping can be made with todays Rifles, bullets and shooting expertise at that incredible range!
Congratulations are in order for this new pending world record.
Long live benchrest competition.

Pullit: Indeed, the fellow who showed me a photo copy of the record target had forgotten exactly which caliber was used to make the pending new record in answer to my question - but it was " six millimeter something".
When I get the definitive answer to my posed question I will relay it here.

Hey people bash Vortex, but my Viper has been rock steady. I will admit that I don't throw it in the creek or beat it on rocks like some do but then again, I try not to do that with any of my rifles and scopes.

Congratulations to the shooter. That takes a lot of skill, excellent equipment, and a smidgen of luck. Outstanding!!

And it was done with a 6BR variant. The BR, A, X, and Dasher are hard to beat.

Navlav8r & DoubleDs55: Indeed I am just amazed at that incredible showing of accuracy at that distance and that number of rounds fired!
He can certainly be proud of that accomplishment.
I have been trying to ascertain the gunsmith/Riflesmith who put the Rifle together for him - any info from anyone on that?

P.S.: Seems the village idiot known hereon as boob brown seems to follow in my wake trying to be funny - so ignore him. He is neither funny nor factual let alone his utter ignorance and immaturity.

Pullit: Pardon my slow reply its been Hunting season and gun chasin season and finally I have run down some info for you.
The cartridge used to set this record was a 6m/m Remington Benchrest Ackley Improved!
I got this info from a friend and fellow competitor of the new record holder, just this morning.
By the way the fellow I got the info from was a former world record holder in 1,000 yard benchrest himself.
He held the record for ONE day!
He set the record on Saturday in Missoula, Montana and on Sunday (the next day) someone back east broke his record.
You know what they say "records are made to be broken" - and "fame is fleeting".
