12.4 mm for 40 Shots at 50m — New Record at Eley Test Center
Two new 50m rimfire 40-shot group size records were set last week at the Eley test range in Fellback (Stuttgart), Germany. This range employs an electronic target system that automatically calculates shot placement with great precision. The rifles are secured in clamping fixtures during testing. On January 21st, a new 13.2 mm record was set, follow by an even-better 12.4 mm record (that’s 0.488″). The previous record was 13.3 mm set in 2007.
 
Before we go further, we need to explain how these 40-shot records are determined. The record is not 40 shots fired in one single, continuous string at a single target. Instead the record is based on the software-calculated “consolidated” group size of four, separate 10-shot groups. Software at the Eley test range is capable of over-laying four, 10-shot groups so they appear as one large “consolidated” group. These “consolidated” 40-shot group overlays have been recognized as new records.

Record 1, 13.2 mm Consolidated Group (Score 426.7)
Michael Baumann, Bleiker Rifle, Eley lot 1014–01002
 Record 2, 12.4 mm Consolidated Group (Score 427.7)
Michael Baumann, Bleiker Rifle, Eley lot 1014–06005
 The first record was a 40-shot, 13.2 mm group (Score 426.7), which broke the previous record by 0.1 mm. The second record (using the same equipment) was a fantastic group size of 12.4 mm (Score 427.7), breaking the new record by 0.8 mm. Both records were set with Eley rimfire ammo produced in 2014 just 10 days before the test.
Using another Bleiker rifle, the Norway Military Team also came to visit the ELEY UK range in early February. Ole-Kristian Bryhn (new ELEY sponsored shooter) got incredible results from his Bleiker and his Coaches stated “The best testing ever!“
This comment is not surprising when you look at his score of 426.5 (group size 14.4) with lot  1014-01014.
And finally Odd- Arne Brekne, from the Norway team using another Bleiker got a score of 427.2 (group size 13.8) with lot 1014-01020 and remarked “Best group and score ever“. Martyn Buttery the UK range officer commented “The Norway visit was superb, the guys were gobsmacked by how good the testing went overall… They were amazed at the scores and group sizes. Since that visit, all the UK customers’ tests have been fantastic too”.

May 2010: German shooter Julian Justus does well in recent shoots.

At 22 years of age, Julian is undoubtedly the most talented young shooter in Germany at the moment.

He commented that this barrel had won the following over the years: "That barrel has two Olympic medals, a world record, all four US National records for the Olympic smallbore disciplines, 6 perfect 600's in prone, and lots of World Cup medals."

Bill Burkert wites: "My best achievement came in June at the 2008 Mid-Atlantic 6400 Prone Championship in Palmyra, Pennsylvania This four day match, two with iron sights and two with any sights, is one of the best NRA prone matches in the country. There is a nice article in Pennsylvania Shooting News, a publication of the Pennsylvania Rifle and Pistol Association (www.pennarifleandpistol.com), regarding this match.

I was fortunate to post my first 1600, a perfect score of 160 straight tens, on June 13, day two of the iron sight phase of the competition. There are not many 1600's shot with iron sights and I could not have done it without a little bit of luck and my new Lilja drop-in barrel for my 2013 Anschutz. Each prone shot is the net result of a cumulation of errors created by the conditions, position, sight picture, ammo, rifle and barrel. No matter how good the shooter is, to shoot good scores one must eliminate as much mechanical error as possible so an accurate barrel is imperative.

Last year, in the 2007 Mid-Atlantic 6400, I finished in 18th place with 6327-339x, while this year, with my new Lilja barrel, I finished in 4th place with a 6390-497x. Three shooters who took part in this match finished in the top ten at National Prone Championship Matches at Camp Perry this year. I was shooting in good company!

What a difference a great barrel makes!"

I clean the barrel every 100 to 200 rounds. At our recent National Championships I again won two National titles. The first being the Long Range Championship with a 588 out of 600.
