SK’s Erich Mietenkorte Wins Iron Man Silhouette Championships

Sedalia, MO – Team SK member Erich Mietenkorte dominated the competition to secure first place at the Annual Iron Man Silhouette Championships, a grueling two-day test of precision marksmanship and mental fortitude.

“Iron Man” aptly captures the demanding nature of the event where competitors fire two 40-shot smallbore silhouette matches in the morning, followed by two 40-shot high-power matches in the afternoon each day. Mietenkorte secured his fourth consecutive “Iron Man” Championship with the following results:

1st Place – Smallbore Standard Rifle
1st Place – Smallbore Hunter Rifle
1st Place – High-Power Standard Rifle
2nd Place – High-Powder Hunter Rifle

Mietenkorte stated, SK Rimfire Ammunition was pivotal in my smallbore wins and laid the groundwork for centerfire categories as well. Training with SK Rifle Match keeps my fundamentals solid and is the foundation for my success.”

The Iron Man was hosted by the Hellgate Civilian Shooters Association June 1-2nd at Missoula’s Deep Creek Range. The prestigious event gathered competitors from across the country and from Canada to test their silhouette skills and endurance.
