 All of the competitors are asked to fill out the equipment list provided in their shooter’s packets. Most do, and I thank them for taking the time! We try to publish
 the equipment used by the match and class winners as this gives those interested an idea of the components used by the most successful competitors. We hope
 this information satisfies the manufacturers and magazine publishers requirements as well as providing aid to new shooters in their selection of future equipment
 and loads.
