Sedalia, MO – Lapua, world-renowned for producing the finest cases, bullets and cartridges, is pleased to announce their support of the Monarch Cup as title sponsor.
In its inaugural year, the Lapua Monarch Cup is a series of smallbore silhouette shooting matches hosted in three different countries: Canada, United States and Mexico. Competitors will earn points from each match within their respective classification (Master, AAA, AA, & A), giving all shooters an opportunity for the $25,000 in cash prizes. Lapua’s Monarch Cup will be recognized as the must-attend event of the silhouette shooting world.
Smallbore silhouette shooting is a fun and challenging shooting discipline that has competitors taking aim at a variety of steel chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams. Shooters, standing and unsupported, take aim at four banks of silhouettes at increasing distances, shooting 40 targets in all. For every silhouette knocked down, the competitors earns one point. Smallbore shooters are shooting at a distances of 40, 60, 77 and 100 meters and High Power at 200, 300, 385 and 500 meters.
