U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce that Team Ruger took home a pair of production division titles at this year’s WAR Rifles Shootout and MAP Spring Shootout Precision Rifle Series (PRS) matches.
With a final score of 128.00 and a time of 58.51, team captain Doug Koenig took first place in the production division at the WAR Rifle Shootout PRS match held in Mount Victoria, MD. The WAR Rifle Shootout is a grueling, two-day competition consisting of a challenging 22-stage course of fire that focuses on accuracy, time and target engagement at various distances, shooting positions and terrain. Along with receiving top honors in the production division, Koenig also finished twelfth overall, shooting the Ruger Precision® Rifle chambered in 6mm Creedmoor.
Koenig followed that victory up with another production division win at the MPA Spring Shootout held at the Arena Training Facility in Blakely, GA with a final score of 173.00 and a time of 58.89.
“The tough course of fire and 15-25 mph winds at the War Rifle match were brutal, but my Precision Rifle, equipped with a Leupold VX-3i LRP and loaded with Hornady ammunition, continued to perform,” said Koenig. “The MPA match had some long shots out to 800-1356 yards, but my factory rifle got the job done and helped me win my third production class title in a row. That proves you don’t need to spend a fortune to get started in PRS competition.”
According to PRS standards, production division rifles are not permitted to be altered or improved in any way from the original factory configuration, and the retail price may not exceed $2,000.
