This article by Michael Bell is about the improving scores and new records being shot in the Long Range (500 Metre) Precision Benchrest sport of Fly Shooting in Australia. Les Fraser and Anthony Hall smashed the existing aggregate score records in 2011 and Michael looks at how this occured and the changes that have resulted since.
This is the third in a series of interviews with people who are successful & respected in their fields within the shooting sports.
Ken Melgaard who owns and operates Copperhead Bullets has kindly agreed to participate.
The aim of these articles is to get some insight into the methods and opinions of these people so that all “fly” shooters can learn a little about what it takes to get the best from themselves and or their equipment.
One of the most critical aspects in long range precision shooting is being able to read the wind and other conditions that effect bullet flight. Here is a chart to help you understand bullet effect from wind. I will be attaching other information about books and other material to help shooters understand reading "conditions".
