2011 High Power Rifle champion pulls ahead at Camp Perry

Carl Bernosky retakes lead for NRA High Power title at Camp Perry, Ohio

Port Clinton, Ohio - After a day of steady shooting while those ahead of him faltered, Carl Bernosky retook the lead in the 2012 NRA National High Power Rifle Championship. Sporting a 1195-66x at the halfway point in the competition for the Mumma Trophy, Bernosky's lead is anything but guaranteed.

Sergeant Sherri Gallagher, who started the morning one point ahead of Bernosky, increased her lead to two following the Navy Cup. Following a practically clean round of 199 (Bernosky fired a 198), Bernosky made up a point each in the Coast Guard match and the afternoon's Army Cup. Their point totals tied, it came down to an X-count. That's where Bernosky head the lead ... by seven. Behind only a handful of X's, Gallagher sits in second, for now.

But the High Power Championship isn't just between these two. Army Shooting Team member Staff Sergeant Brandon Keith Green is currently in third with a 1194-67x - down a point and up an X of our current leader. And fouth-placed Rodrigo Rosa rests a mere point behind Green with a three X's lead on him.

Yesterday's leader, SSG Tyrel Cooper, slipped a couple points, but is still in the running at fifth. And as the highest Service Rifle shooter, Cooper holds the lead in the Service Rifle Championship.

There are still two full days of shooting in the High Power Rifle Championships. A lot can - and probably will - happen.

Here's what our competitors are shooting today:

Weather is ... not going to be as good today. Camp Perry is trading in clear skies for clouds with a good chance of thunderstorms. That means rain, thunder, lightening and range delays. The wind is appears to be picking up too - perfect for a 600-yard match.

Good luck today, shooters. And stay dry-ish.
