Episode 19 – Scott Hull on Setting up a Hunter Division Scope, Ballistic Programs, and Bracketing

In this episode of the podcast I interview three-time national champion Scott Hull on his tips for setting up a scope on a Hunter Division rifle.


Scott talks about his favorite scope, mill dots, using ballistic programs, and bracketing.

Scott is an engineer by training and he brings his approach to setup and figuring out a reliable way to range with the limitations of a 12x scope.



Episode 18 – West Coast Piston Championships – Scott Hull

In this episode Scott Hull and I talk about the West Coast Piston Championships scheduled for August 19th and 20th near Morro Bay, California. Scott is the match director and is putting together another great piston shoot.

This two-day, all piston rifle shoot, is unique in the U.S. and my hope would be to see similar piston shoots held around the country.

For Registration:


Scott is allowing registration upon arrival as well, but let him know ahead of time, if possible.

Do your best to make it to this shoot.  You won’t be disappointed.
