BEAVERTON, Ore. —-(Ammoland.com)- Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is pleased to announce that Leupold Core Team Member Jon Pynch took 1st place at the Canadian Sharpshooter Classic, held July 13-14 in Alberta, Canada. Pynch – who dominated the field by finishing 40 points ahead of 2nd place – runs the award-winning Leupold Mark 5HD 5-25×56 on his competition rifle when competing in long-range precision events.
A two-day sanctioned Precision Rifle Series match at the Rob Furlong Marksmanship Academy range, the Canadian Sharpshooter Classic challenged competitors to engage targets between 500-1,400 yards over 18-20 stages.
“I can’t say it enough – of all the gear that a competition shooter has to rely on, nothing is more important than the riflescope,” Pynch said. “The Mark 5HD has delivered for me since day one – it tracks flawlessly and is packed with features that were meant for long-range, precision rifle shooters.”
The Mark 5HD line that Pynch runs on his competition guns has been crafted to redefine accuracy, precision, and optical performance for long-range shooters – and do so in a package that embodies rugged reliability. Three models – a 7-35×56, 5-25×56, and 3.6-18×44 – are available in both milliradian and MOA configurations.
“Jon is one of the most respected and dominant shooters in the long-range community – and he showed why in Alberta,” said Joshua Bechard, Marketing Partnerships Specialist for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Winning a PRS-style match by 40 points is incredible. We’re ecstatic to have him representing the Leupold brand in the field.”
