Sorry, this entry is only available in German.
IWA is already some days ago, but I just found these pics of the very interesting Kahles ballistic quick change again on my mobile and thought, they might be interesting to Show. Guess, I´ll shortly Mount this on my Kahles also!

Cool start into the new shooting season! Shot my first match this year in IPSC rifle. The winter range rifle match. Cool small club match with nice stages. The stages have been build by the competitors shooting Saturday and cleared by the competitors shooting Sunday. Very good idea! This keeps cost low and everybody is involved.

Lesson of the day – Magazines need to by filled by the beep… or: leaning by pain!
But – one after the other. Today, the two clubs PPS Team 1993 and WPPC held their Summerrifle IPSC Rifle LII Match in Philippsburg. Small but nice! First in the morning, all shooters build the stages together, then, always two squads shot the day together stage by stage. On shooting, the other working (patching, scoring etc.) and vice versa. Easy and good! This helps to reduce effort and costs. And it worked nice!
Markus Wohlmuthad designed 7 nice stages between 5 and 40 rounds. The stages had been very varying and could be shot very smooth. That was real fun in my opinion! My results have been promising. I was fast and I could even win a stage (three half A4 targets on 40m, three rounds each) . Continue reading “Summerrifle — IPSC Rifle LII PPS Team 1993 und WPPC”
At the weekend, I shot the German Nationals IPSC Rifle. One of the highlights for me in my match schedule! Unfortunately, there are to little rifle matches around here!
Already the competitor list promised, that this will be a very interesting match. Shooters from Germany, Denmark, Italy, France, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia, Suisse und Norway have been on the list!
I was very excited, how my match would be. I’ve practiced more for this match and on top, with the Kahles K16i, I´ve had a impressive new scope to prove oneself in a real match!
I´ve been in Philippsburg today to zero my Rifle and to see, where I have to aim at 300m. What should I say – I’ve been very pleased! First, I’ve been at the 100m range to zero the scope with the Geco .223 63grs. This ammo performed best at 300m last year with my rifle. That was easy and done fast. The result looked like that after zeroing (flyer high right was the first shot, then came the group low. After that, I corrected by one click up and the group in the middle came last): Continue reading “STI Custom Competition Rifle — Kahles K16i — Geco .223 63grs — 300m”
Though I announced, that I´ll get a Helia5 from Kahles, I got now a K16i! Actually, the K16i should only be available for public authorities in Germany. But the great success in the 3-Gun market of the US brought Kahles to the decision to make the scope also available to the public in Germany. Good decision!
