After finishing a Rifles Only competition course, one of the attendees mentioned having a scoped and barreled action with the Teludyne sleeve on it with no stock. The set up would likely shoot well no matter what stock is sat in.
Accepting the challenge, Jacob Bynum bet he could bet he could put it on a 2×4 with duct tape and successfully zero then shoot it at 1000 yards. No action screws, no bedding, only inletted for trigger, bottom metal, and recoil lug. Just parts strapped to a 2×4 with duct tape.
Zeroing at 100 yards
Shooting at 1000 yards on steel (listen for steel hit)
Lesson learned: Marksmanship skill is more important than equipment.

My last active duty assignment as a small arms trainer took place at Fort Sill. While I was stationed there the post paper (The Cannoneer) published an article about a local active duty unit conducting internal small arms training.
The 2008 Olympics are upon us!
Be sure to keep up with the shooting events as they unfold. Just as important, learn more about the International disciplines and the history of the Modern Olympiad. The Olympics were founded by champion marksman Baron Pierre de Coubertin.
USAR team shooter Keith Sanderson is competing in the Men’s 25 meter Rapid Fire Pistol event.
Results and information is available at:
Army Reserve Marksman (ARM), the USAR Marksmanship Newsletter.
OCAR (Office of the Chief, Army Reserve) is required to publish a newsletter devoted to information concerning marksmanship training and competition entiled “Army Reserve Marksman” (ARM).
This site will serve as that publication. Information on all facets of marksmanship training and competition will be published here.
