Mesa, AZ – Congratulations to Team Berger’s Dustin Flint who was crowned as the first 2022 Lapua Monarch Cup North American Champion. Flint finished 1st place at the 2022 NRA Smallbore Silhouette National Championship held in Ridgeway, PA, and 4th at the Lapua Monarch Cup in Saltillo, Mexico. The two-match aggregate determined the Lapua Monarch Cup North American champion.
The Lapua Monarch Cup is a series of smallbore silhouette shooting matches hosted in both the United States and Mexico. Competitors earn points from each match within their respective classification (Master, AAA, AA, & A), giving all shooters an opportunity for over $100,000 in cash and prizes. Lapua’s Monarch Cup is recognized as the must-attend event of the silhouette shooting world.
“I feel incredibly fortunate and a bit overwhelmed to have been able to win the inaugural Lapua Monarch Cup North American Championship. It has been my goal and, really, my dream to win this championship. This is, without a doubt, the greatest silhouette championship in the world where you get to compete against the best silhouette shooters in the world,” commented Flint.
“Thank you so much to Lapua and Berger for sponsoring this incredible event and supporting me with the best products made. I do not believe this championship would have been possible with lesser-quality ammunition.”
Flint will compete next at the Louisiana Highpower Silhouette State Championship October 15-16.
