Did anyone EVER pass Pilkington's "555+" or better score w/ a Steyr-compact & Win a free long-barrel?

The "555+" contest is dead; long live the "555+" contest!

i saw 2 shooters that were 555+ with short barrels. Not sure if they were ever in the contest.

I just passed the one year mark and failed his challenge.

Made 555+ plenty of times in practice, but I still got way too much adrenaline going when the starting gun fires for real competition.

Longer radius won't fix this loose nut behind the trigger. (Shooting an LP-50 by the way, more fun than a barrel of monkeys)
