We’d like to welcome back all of our Long Range shooting friends to the desert! This week at the Ben Avery Shooting Range, the Desert Sharpshooters Rifle Club will be hosting the Southwest Nationals long range shooting competition. This competition features F-Open, F-TR, and Sling shooting disciplines shooting at 600, 800, 900, and 1,000 yards. Berger has been the proud title sponsor of this match since it’s inception, and we are always in awe at just how great of a match the Desert Sharpshooters run.
“Berger is honored to continue its partnership with Desert Sharpshooters Rifle Club for this year’s 2022 Southwest Nationals. We’re excited to be onsite this week and support the world’s best long-range shooters for the 10th consecutive year now,” stated Geoff Esterline, Marketing Director for Capstone Precision Group.
This match truly is one of the smoothest and well-run matches, and it is held at a world-class facility that has 100 firing-points at distances out to 1,000 yards. With nearly 400 of the world’s top competitors from nine different countries, it isn’t hard to imagine why this is considered the “must-attend” event of the year for competitive long-range shooters. To give you an idea of how much shooters love this event, each year when shooter registration is posted the match sells out within minutes! We really are grateful that our name can be associated with such a great event.
Our team will be at Ben Avery this week during the match, so even if you aren’t planning to compete, feel free to check out the match and stop by our trailer and say hi!
