Alex McMillan.


SSAA Coffs Harbour branch held the NSW State Score Championships from 6 to 9 March, 2021.

122 competitors competed over the 4 days. Consensus was that everyone enjoyed the whole weekend and the rain managed to hold off to only fall at night.

Some outstanding scores were shot, local Junior and Bishop Druitt student Alex McMillan won the Gold medal in the HB Centrefire event scoring 250.22 at 100yds and 250.12 at 200yds beating shooters who are in the Benchrest Hall of Fame and shooters who have represented Australia overseas.

In the Rimfire LB Glenn Seaman from West Wyalong broke two Australian records the first being 250.14 at 50m and combined with the 250.3 at 100yds the Grand Agg.

An amazing result when you consider only a 6x scope is allowed.

In the HB Rimfire local shooters Steve Morton 250.21 came in 2nd.

Bill Buchanan 250.19, 3rd.

In his first major shoot Bernie Axford equal 4th.

Finally Paul Sullivan shot an almost perfect score in the HB Rimfire 50m with a 250.24 and Kevin Birse 250.24 in the 100yds HB Centrefire.
