Title: Instructor KD at Talladega CMP 14-15 July 2018
Post by: brianf31 on May 16, 2018, 07:14:10 AM
All,

 We plan to have our annual Instructor KD at Talladega CMP on 14-15 July 2018. It will be a great time of shootin' and fellowship. If you've never shot 600 yards at Talladega, you don't know what you're missing!

 Cokeguy will Shoot Boss this event, with Maximum Ordinate assisting. It will be excellent instruction.


Sign up is here:

https://goappleseednow.org/?event=talladega-al-know-distance-july-28-29-2018-instructor-only


Range info: https://appleseedinfo.org/search-states-location.php?locationid=703&id_event=4816&showall=yes

Range fee for the two-day shoot is $45 for adults and $25 for youth.


This shoot is open to any Appleseed instructor. Please share via email, particularly with instructors from nearby states.

We'll have some instruction, at least 4 AQT's and a little target detection and range estimation . Saturday shoot will run from 0800 to 1700. Sunday will run from 0900 to 1500. The range fees cover full use of the park, which closes at 1900.  You are welcome to do some fun shooting with pistols or shotguns after formal instruction ends. 

Last year, many of us stayed at Talladega Creekside http://www.talladegacreekside.com/   just a couple miles from the range. They have various size cabins (some big enough to split/share) at reasonable rates. Please note - they do not answer the phone.  Text them to set up reservations.   We had a great time grilling and hanging out.

Alternatively, instructors and shooters often stay at the Days Inn or Comfort Inn at Lincoln.  It's close, relatively inexpensive, and has clean sheets/hot water.


Looking forward to it,

Brianf31

This shoot is always a good time of fellowship and shooting but I probably won't make this one. I'm leaving next week for a 6 week stint at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton New Mexico assisting TaosGlock (Dan Bradford) with the youth adventure camps there the month of June.

[/size]Camp ends on 7/7 and Mrs. Wreck and I will do some sightseeing in the SW before meandering/driving home. In lieu of making the instructor KD I'll send pictures of me trying to hit the "White Buffalo" at 1123 yards with my M1A.  If I do get back in time I may drive down.
Y'all shoot straight.

I should know next Friday if my work schedule will allow me to attend, but I would like to meet you guys and learn some new skills. I am planning on running a .223 ar with a 16 inch  floated barrel. My usual ammo is 55gr PMC Bronze. I use a Nikon 3x scope with bdc. Should this rig work at 600? It shoots within my margin of error out to 400. Thank you for sharing some insight. There is no way that I can load enough rounds between now and then to shoot 62's. Also how many rounds should I bring? Thanks Al

I think you'll be fine with that for the weekend, sir.

I expect the round count for this event should be around 350.

Hope you can make it!

Just got my summer schedule, and I am in! I can't wait to build my skill set and meet you guys. Do I need to do anything other that responding here?

My IIT wife shot expert at Talledega 3 out of 4 tries with a 16" 1/7 twist chrome lined lightweight barrel, 4X scope and 55 grain reloads. Your gear should work fine.

I look forward to meeting you.
