Team Federal Shines at the 2021 Fort Benning Multigun Challenge

Friday, December 3rd, 2021

ANOKA, Minnesota – December 1, 2021 – Team Federal sponsored shooters finished strong at the recent 2021 Fort Benning Multigun Challenge in Fort Benning Georgia. Every fall, the U.S. Army hosts this event at the fort’s recreational shooting complex. Federal supported this year’s match as a Gold Sponsor. Team Federal shooters Tucker Schmidt, Alysia Burrows and Todd Jarrett all performed well among the 234 shooters on hand. Schmidt earning a second-place finish for the match shooting in the Open division, Burrows with second place in the Tac Ops division for the Ladies’ category, and Jarrett finishing in eighth place for the Tac Ops division also earning “Top Senior” for the match.

“Congratulations to all our shooters at this match. The Army Marksmanship Unit are famous for running fun, innovative matches. From all I’ve heard, this one was no exception,” said Federal Ammunition Shooting Sports Promotions Manager Jason Spradling. “Our Team Federal shooters always do a great job representing our brand and I’m proud of their achievements this weekend.”

“It was a close and heated competition. It came down to the very last stage and it didn’t go my way. I’ll be working hard to come back next year and get the win,” said Schmidt. “My go-to ammo is The Federal Gold Medal line of shotgun and precision rifle ammo, as well as the American Eagle 55-grain for the go-fast rifle portions.”

“In a stiff competition environment like Benning, there really isn’t any margin for error. That’s why knowing your guns and knowing your ammo is a big part of preparation for an event like this,” said Burrows. “Feeding high performance guns with questionable ammo isn’t an option. I’ve always used Federal, even before I was on the team. I know each round is going to perform the same as the last.”

“Todd Jarrett’s Top Senior trophy and top-ten finish certainly was a highlight of the event for Team Federal,” continued Spradling. “Todd is a seasoned competitor and is well respected in the community. We’re excited to have him on board representing our brand with solid performances like this one.”

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 23, 2021) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG professional shooter Daniel Horner for defending his first-place title at the 2021 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Nationals. Horner’s impressive performance earned him the overall title of “Tactical Optics Champion.”

“First and foremost, it’s great to see this match return to the competition schedule. The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit has made the Fort Benning multi-gun the premier 3-gun match of the season and SIG SAUER is honored to be the title sponsor,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are especially proud that for 2021, Team SIG’s Daniel Horner, and former AMU Team Captain, returned to successfully defend his title as Tactical Optics Champion. This win provided him the perfect opportunity, and proving ground, to set the stage for the upcoming commercial launch of his DH3 M400 competition rifle which he has been thoughtfully refining feature by feature since he joined Team SIG.”

To defend his title at the 2021 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge Horner competed through 9 stages, against 148 competitors. The competition required three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) to compete and targets throughout the stages ranged from 2 – 400 yards. For pistol competition Horner used his P320 XFIVE LEGION pistol with iron sights and SIG 9mm Match Elite Competition Ammunition. For long-range competition Horner used his SIG SAUER DH3 M400 Competition rifle (soon to be commercially available) with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T riflescope, 223 REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition and SIG KILO10K-ABS HD range-finding binoculars.

“The Fort Benning Multi-Gun match is always my favorite of the season because I get to return to the AMU as a professional competitor and have my shooting skills, physical agility, and mental mindset challenged. This year’s field of competitors were hungry for the win, and it was a battle for first place right through to the last stage,” said Daniel Horner. “In the pistol stages, the accuracy and reliability of my P320 XFIVE LEGION gave me the clear edge over the competition, and in the rifle stages my SIG system consisting of the rifle, optic, and ammo provided me with the precision I needed for long-range targets.”

The SIG SAUER equipment used by Team SIG Pro Shooter Daniel Horner including the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T riflescope, SIG KILO10K-ABS HD rangefinding binoculars, 223REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition and 9MM SIG Match Elite Competition Ammunition can be purchased online at sigsauer.com or retailers everywhere.

Melissa Gilliland Named PRS Southeastern Regional Series Top Lady

Wednesday, October 27th, 2021

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – October 26, 2021 – Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, along with RCBS and Hoppe’s, is celebrating pro shooter Melissa Gilliland’s strong finish at the PRS Southeastern Regional Finale, which took place at the Arena Training Facility in Blakely, Georgia.

Gilliland finished the match as Top Lady and 20th overall at the Finale. Her strong finish at the match combined with multiple top placements throughout the season also earned her Top Lady and 14th overall for this year’s Southeastern Regional Series. During the match, Gilliland used the new Bushnell Elite Tactical DMR3 scope with G4P reticle and relied on her RCBS reloading equipment and Hoppe’s gun care to see her through the finale.

“This new glass from Elite Tactical was designed with a lot of team member input, and it shows,” Gilliland said. “The improved reticle, the quick 0.04-mil floating center dot, the wide eye box on every magnification level…attention to details like these make the difference in PRS competition. They definitely made the difference for me this week!”

Gilliland continued, “When it comes to my reloading needs, RCBS is the only brand I trust. With the new ChargeMaster Supreme and Link dispenser, I know that every load will be consistent from start to finish and that’s accuracy you just can’t match.”

With her qualifying finish at the Southeastern Regional Finale, Gilliland will be heading to the PRS Pro Series Finale, which takes place November 6 in Raton, New Mexico.

“It has been an awesome season and I’ve really enjoyed all of the matches that I have shot as part of the Southeastern Regional Series,” Gilliland said. “I’m looking forward to competing in the PRS Finale next month and I can’t thank my sponsors enough for all of their support. My gear is second to none and I hope to be able to end the season on a high note.”
