Mason Dohm’s Pending Junior F-Open National Record
Mason Dohm is a Junior F-Open F-Class shooter from Southern Indiana. He shoots roughly 2 to 3 matches a month at the Borden, Indiana club as well as Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana.
Last weekend, Mason and his dad attended the Indiana 300/500/600 Mid-range regional at Camp Atterbury. Mason started off extremely well shooting a 200/12x at 300 yards, 200/13x at 500 yards and a 195/7x at 600 yards. This is an unofficial Junior F-Open Grand Aggregate National Record with a 595 32x. The paperwork for the record is currently being submitted to the NRA.
He finished the weekend with a grand aggregate of 1183/68x. His 68x was best for the entire field by 5 x’s and placed 3rd in F-Open. To top off the weekend, his score was high enough for him to be classified as a High Master. His goals for the entire season were to clean 1 target and gain the High-Master classification in Mid-range. He accomplished it all in one weekend!
On June 15th, Mason, his father, along with Bill Phillips and Zoe Phillips, will be leaving for the Junior National Championships in Raton, NM, where the two youngsters will be competing against some of the best junior shooters in the country. It also happens to be Mason’s 15th birthday!
Mason’s rifle is a .284 Shehane built by Southern Indiana Precision using a McMillan Kestros ZR that Fred Jeffers assisted on the configuration. A Krieger 30″ 1.25″ straight taper barrel, a Timney Bench Rest trigger, all tied together on a Defiance Rebel action.
