    Too lazy to build a bench so I bought one from Harbor Freight years ago when they were really inexpensive. Solid and does the job. Excuse the mess.

    Ben where did you shoot, Ft. Stockton?
    Uvalde, New Braunfels, PSC, Greenwood, Sour Lake, Victoria, and Midlothian are the places I can name offhand.
    Missed one out of 80 with Remington XP-100 and finished around 100th place. Tough competition.
    That's the problem with the design of the course of fire. It's way too easy for Unlimited shooting freestyle. It's discouragingly difficult for Standing Production.

    If the slate were swept clean, it would be possible to design a course that's easy enough to be encouraging and yet difficult enough to test the best shooters. Unfortunately, when the course of fire was finalized the attendees at that meeting chose to just ape the course of fire for rifles.

    The sport wouldn't be moribund if the founders had known just a little game theory. :(

    I shot silhouette's when I lived upstate NY, region 1. Shooting season was from April (weather permitting) to Sept maybe Oct. I shot every weekend, 3 matches and 4th weekend practice. I purchased bullets in bulk and powder in 10 lb lots. I shot 7br, 44 magnum revolver, 357 maximum in a Contender. 22 silhouette's too.

    Ah, ok. I thought you were shooting long rifle.

    I can imagine.

    Just had a thought (shocking, I know).... does static ever build up with the carpet?

    We're dry where I live, esp in the winter, and static can be a big problem with certain things.
    I've never noticed a problem with static building up on the carpeted surface. However, if you spill any amount of powder it has a tendency to stay in the carpet and needs to be vacuumed out. Static and dryness aren't a problem here in Texas and wasn't in Colorado or Virginia, either.

    Nothing special about my setup. Small bench for a small space, made from a Gorilla rack workbench. Rock Chucker on the right, formerly had a Dillon 550B on the left. Bullets on the first shelf, brass on the bottom (disregard the bin of brass sitting out on the floor...my wife decided she needed to "borrow" one of my plastic bins...) Powder stored in the shelves and pullout bins on the left, dies and tools on the top shelf. The benchtop is a re-purposed kitchen countertop covered in indoor-outdoor carpeting. Why the carpeting on the benchtop? Well...I don't really know...seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess. Wouldn't do it again. Stool is highly adjustable for height, works great for those processes when I sit, and does double duty at the benchrest matches. Tumbler, sonic cleaner and all the associated messy stuff is out in the garage.

    Everything you need, nothing you don’t!
