Stage 8 had shooters
firing from a position on
this old log.
season since the last rimfire match is right
before the season starts.
The second ELEY Practical Rimfire
Challenge winner was Josh Bartlett. Michael
Garnett and Brix Birckner rounded out the
top three in second and third place.
PNTC owner Cole McCulloch said, "The
technology has finally caught up to what
many competitive shooters want now-
precision-level accuracy in a .22 cartridge.
Now, a .22 can be used in competition out
to nearly 300 yards. Companies like ELEY,
Volquartsen and Kahles have really stepped
up to the plate. We worked with them closely
testing out their equipment while developing
this new discipline of .22 precision rimfire."
The next ELEY PRC will be in September.
For the 2018 season, shooters can expect to
see an increase to a total of five matches-
instead of three. Be sure to sign up so you
can participate in this exciting new precision
rimfire rifle discipline! *
