Scores hit the target
Sunday turned on a beautiful day for the eighth metallic silhouette competition of the year.
The first event of the day was the rimfire silhouette class.
In a recent run of brilliant scores in other disciplines, Di Nicholls continued to dominate competition by shooting a score of 18 to take out the event.
Coming in second was Philip Murray with a score of 16 and for third, both Jason Read and Chris Lefroy shot scores of 14.
Read ultimately took third place, relegating Lefroy to fourth place after a countback on turkeys.
Newcomer Cornelius Mitchley took fifth place with a score of 12.
The “big guns” silhouette rifle class, shooting all the way to 500m, was going to be more challenging as the wind started to blow, with gusts of up to 20km/h.
In a close tussle between Read and Murray, Read held on to take out first place with a score of eight, closely followed by Murray, taking out second place with a score of seven.
Third place was taken out by newcomer Masen Collins with a score of three.
