I'd say that the rifle was a major part of my success. I am absolutely amazed with my rifle, particularly how well balanced it is with the low-mass bolt and buffer in managing the recoil. I found myself engaging close targets slow at first while anticipating the amount of time to recover from the recoil. As I took shot after shot, I progressively sped up as I realized that the recoil was very manageable and I could engage the targets faster. As for the long-range stages, I took first place in both stage 6 and 9, something I never thought I could ever do.
