Eleven days were open for “qualifying matches”, and the 25 highest men shot off in final match on March 15 at 100 Blue Rocks from Magautrap.
Heikes broke 91 and took the first prize, also first medal in the Continuous, as he was tied with Elliott and they agreed to shoot it off in the championship race. During the “qualifying” matches Heikes won first prize five times and the Continuous medal twice, and in the final won first in each.
For 1100 shots in the championship he averaged .938 per cent. He was using a Remington hammerless gun, 45 grains of “Schultze” (3 1/8 Dr. Eq.) powder in U.M.C. Smokeless shells.

Heikes used a Parker at the 1901 Anglo-American match, as did Capt. Thos. Marshall, C.W. Budd, Fred. Gilbert, F.S. Parmelee, Chan. Powers, E.H. Tripp, Richard Merrill, and B. Le Roy Woodard. Crosby and Fanning used a Smith; J.A.R. Elliott and Ed Banks Winchester 1897s.
