200.20X – The Perfect Bullet for F-TR

2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition

  The 2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition was held on May 27 - 29 in Finger, TN at the K&M Precision Rifle Training Shooting Complex.

On Friday, the range offered shooters an open range day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Steel targets were set out every 100 [...]
