Several weeks ago I helped to promote the June 15-16 Camp Atterbury Appleseed, a known-distance Appleseed where Wolf Arms brought thousands of rounds of ammunition for the 69 shooters, and IWI and Mach1 brought some very nice hardware for shooters to try out.
Wolf Performance Ammunition provided ammo for the event, and Appleseeders fired 9,000 rounds without single ammunition related stoppage.
While many Appleseeds are shorter-range events focused at 25 yards, on smaller ranges, Camp Atterbury is a military range and shooters were able to fire at actual distances. Judging by the pictures, they seem to have eaten it up.
AR-15s seem to be the dominant centerfire rifle type at most Appleseed events. Their inherent accuracy, low recoil impulse, relatively inexpensive ammunition, and modular design enables shooters to custom-tailor the rifle to fit their needs. As Appleseed is a Civilian Marksmanship Program-affiliated club, is comes as no surprise that the classic M1 Garand also always makes a strong showing.
If you’re interested in seeing more pictures from the shoot and the AAR from the folks who were there, head on over to the Appleseed forum. It looks like it was a great event.
