    I would love to do it to. I think we would get smoked without some serious practice on a tactical course like that tho. Some pretty good shots in there by the looks.

    DO they know in advance the ranges at each station? or do they have to figure out that first?

    I'm guessing that most of those timed stages there are known ranges. They seem to adjust the scope before looking through it.
    However I'm sure some of the stages would include unknown range targets.

    I think you will find they are told the range to each target before they start. You see several shooters look at the wrist while adjusting their scopes. I think they write the target distances and their drop data for those specific ranges on a little card that they keep on their off hand wrist. Very smart, very fast and solely aimed at this sort of competition.

    Very cool compettiion though. I would love to attend and compete. I would love even more to get a competition like this in NZ... even a competition halfway close to this would be awesome.
