Beaverton, OR -(AmmoLand.com)- Leupold & Stevens, Inc. congratulates Richard Sulffridge on setting two Light Gun World Records at the National Benchrest Shooter’s Association national championship, held in Leupold’s home state of Oregon.

Using a VX-3 6.5-20x40mm riflescope partnered with a 2X multiplier, Sulffridge set new marks in the 3-Target Aggregate and 6-Target Aggregate divisions at 1,000 yards.

“To have two world records set using a Leupold is special, but to have them set right here in our backyard is especially rewarding,” said Rob Morrison, vice president of global marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “When the smallest variable can impact performance, there’s a reason competitors choose Leupold.”

Sulffridge’s scores are certainly a testament to accuracy, but also consistency. In the 3-Target competition, competitors fire three 5-shot strings, for a total of 15 shots. In 6-Target, that is six 5-shot strings for 30 total shots.

Over his 15 shots in 3-Target, Sulffridge delivered a group measuring 3.5996 inches at 1,000 yards. His 6-Target record group was 4.1853 inches.

The NBSA has confirmed that these groups are new world records.
