Definitely interested. Lord willing, I will be trying the 22RF KD as well as the KD again in Dorr in October. My M1A is torn down but the parts should be in this week.

I'm going to strongly recommend giving the 200 yard Rimfire KD a vote to help your full distance KD performance.  100 yards is pretty easy with a 22LR...200 gives you wind, trajectory issues and really reveals issues with your shooting fundamentals.

I was looking at signing up to be a shooter at a KD event to getter done :) There looks to be a RKD before the Watervliet & KD event that isn't too far... :)
After my range buddies moved, it's been too easy to have other things come up and not get out to practice. I had no idea how hard good range buddies are to replace.
 :bow: I also finely listened to your wise teaching and installed a less powerful scope on my KD rifle, got tired of taking a nap waiting for the reticle to come back down to the target.  :bow:

Yes, I want to shoot the Watervilet RKD in June.
