Flags at targets during NRA's Rifle Championships are all wet

Port Clinton, Ohio - The final day of competition for NRA's National Individual Title for Long Range High Power Rifle promises to be a classic one. Not only are ten competitors within 3 points of the lead, but the weather conditions have returned to form. Wind and rain with promises of nothing but more.

Before the morning salute is fired, we'll be out on the range to follow those competitors as they state their final case for the championship in the Palma Match.

The Palma Match is unlike any other here at the NRA Long Range Championships. Competitors have been on the line for more than an hour now. An hour in the rain and cold in order to receive their position on the line. Any hopes of coming into the match bright eyed and bushy tailed have long been dashed.

At 8:30 on the dot, they'll take their rifles out to distances of 800, 900 and back to the tradition 1,000 yards. Fifteen shots from each position and we'll know who'll wear this year's crown.

Get ready.
