SHOOTERS' NEWS

LEGENDS: DR. PAUL E.R. NORDQUIST, JR

T

he 1957 NRA
Collegiate AllAmerican roster
was loaded with talent
that would soon become household words
in the smallbore shooting community: Frank
Briggs, Allan Luke, R.
Barry Trew, John Foster, and Lones Wigger.
Chief among them was Paul E. R. Nordquist,
a soft-spoken Winchester 52C-wielding home
town boy representing George Washington
University. Nordquist would again earn AllAmerican status in 1958 before heading off to
the University of Minnesota where he would
earn a Ph.D. in chemistry in 1964.
He was named to his first Dewar Team in
1965 and would appear on the team's roster
five more times-culminating as captain in

2010. While in the Midwest, Nordquist would
complete the requirements for the NRA
Smallbore Distinguished Position Rifleman
Award in 1968.
In 1970, he accepted a position with the
Naval Research Laboratory where he worked
until his 1995 retirement. Nordquist continued
to hone his skills at the Fairfax Rod and Gun
Club-becoming Double Distinguished in
smallbore rifle in 1999. At age 79, Nordquist
ran 220 consecutive 10s and Xs for a 2399186X score at the 2015 National Any Sight
Championship, earning him the win and the
U.S. Cartridge Company Trophy.
It is oddly serendipitous that his
penultimate article, Great Moments In
Sportsmanship: Vere Hamer, appeared on
the Shooting Sport USA website the day he
passed. His last work, Coats of Many Patches,
will appear posthumously in the future.

6 AND 6.5 MM CREEDMOOR BERGARA RIFLES
There's a new caliber on the block and it's
quickly taking over the rifle scene. In fact, in
2017 nearly every company that introduced a
new long gun did so in 6.5 Creedmoor. And
why not? The 6.5 Creedmoor shoots flatter,
has lighter recoil, cuts through the wind
better and is just flat out more accurate than
its predecessor, the venerable .308. Yes, the
6.5 Creedmoor revolution is here and Bergara
Rifles is and has been at the forefront. In
fact, the 6.5 Creedmoor is offered in all rifle
models that Bergara produces. Customers
have noticed-Bergara's 6.5 Creedmoor rifles

are so popular
that it is selling
them at a 10:1 ratio versus its
other calibers.
Additionally, Bergara produces rifles in 6 mm
Creedmoor-a new descendant of the 6.5 mm
round that's making waves in the Precision
Rifle Series community. Bergara offers the LRP,
LRP Elite, Premier Long Range (pictured above)
in 6 mm Creedmoor.
