Name: Missy Gilliland
Hometown: Double Springs, Alabama
Shooting Since: I grew up around firearms all my life. I started shooting at a young age with a BB gun and .22.
Shoot: I shoot in the Precision Rifle Series with my GA Precision 6mmCreedmoor bolt action rifle.
Favorite Shooting Memory: I actually have several, but most of them consist of just the comraderie of hanging out with all the competitors.
How did you get into competing? I tagged along with my Husband Jim to one of his first competitions. I saw another female shooting and thought "I could do this" After the first "Ting" at 800 yrds on steel, I was hooked!
How do you prepare for a competition? Since we not only shoot in prone position, I also practice a lot of positional shots (think hood/trunk of cars/trucks, barricades, tires, ladders, etc.). For me it's also important to keep a routine of going to the gym and having that upper body strength since I am running and gunning a lot!
What’s your longest shot? 1 mile
What is your best piece of reloading advice? Take your time. Reloading is time consuming, but the end product is definitely worth it!

FAVORITE RCBS PRODUCT
“My absolute favorite is the Universal Case Prep Center. It really minimizes your time in prepping your brass.”
The best single piece of advice is just 'Have Fun'. If you take away anything from a shooting sport, just remember to always have fun. At the end of the match, you're not going to remember who won or placed here or there....You are just going to remember the fun and good times you had!
