Brisbane, Australia - With only a few days left at the World Long Range Championships at the Belmont Shoot Complex in Brisbane, it's time to battle it out for the Individual title. Reports suggest that weather came into play again as rain fell upon the range during the 800 yard match. That's when things got interesting.
As competitors moved on to the 900 yard match, the wind began to pick up. The scores, however, still hovered at the 74 (out of 75) point mark. As it says on the competition's website, "The strong frontal wind was more than just tough it was down right cruel at times. Changing quickly in angle as well as in strength magpies and outers were commonplace across the range." Now that does sound like fun.
Here are the scores as of 8:50pm (6:50am est) in Brisbane:
|The World Individual Long Range Match

| ||Trevor Massey||USA
| ||Andre' Du Toit||South Africa
