just as the title says, i would like to know who he is or was.

i am shooting in the 600 yard Bob Wright memorial tomorrow, any info on the match itself i'll count as a plus, but mainly curious as to who Bob Wright is.

Bob Wright

He was a WW2 Army Air Force vet who flew transports over the Himalyas into China from India. He was a very good long range (1000 yd) rifleman in Ohio so the State Long Range Chamionship was named in his honor after he died.

thanks! thats all the couple guys i asked knew... that he won a couple state championship matches. it was a big turn out, we shot 4 relays with 14 shooters on each. i shot very average even though my new Wolfe built match M14 is a M.O.A. rifle, i havnt had it long enough to find a good LR load for it. 66 rounds including sighters (6) all prone slow at 600, in the sun with wind, and it is a NRA sanctioned match.
