Radel and Koch all tied up
A DOUBLE 500 yard shoot on Sunday, December 7 saw the Monto Rifle Club battle hot conditions and changing winds. Heat can add to a distracting mirage for rifle shooters.
Nevertheless, Ray Watson shot 55.3 and followed it up with 64.4 for a grand total of 119.7. Joe Koch shot 53.2 in the first 500 yard shoot and followed it with 61.2 for a grand total of 114.4.
Doug Radel finished on exactly the same score as Mr Koch, after shooting 55.1 in the first shoot and 59.3 in the second, for a total of 114.4 as well.
