Results from Cruffler Match Four

Match Four was an Allies v. Axis World War Two match,and was fired accordingly:

1)  All rifles were benchrested.

2)  Strings were fired at varying ranges, but were averaged, corrected and converted to "Minutes of Angle."  (A Minute of Angle (MOA) is equal to approximately 1" per 100 yards of distance from a given start point.)

2)  Each competitor fired three five shot strings.  The resulting groups were tabulated for size in MOA, and then averaged to provide the score listed below.

And now, without further ado, the results. . . . .
