Team Lapua’s Jack Neary, along with USA teammates Harley Baker, Gary Bristow, and Jeff Graves won the 4-Man Team Gold Medal at the 2019 World Benchrest Championships held in Calgary, Canada this past week.
The World Benchrest Shooting Federation hosts the World Championships every two years in a different country. This year, competitors representing nearly 30 countries tested their skills at 100-yard and 200-yard distances over four days of shooting for individual and team results. Benchrest shooters are notorious for using state-of-the-art reloading equipment, a variety of new and innovative firearms, components and accessories.
All Team USA Gold Medalists use Lapua cartridge cases exclusively for their competitive shooting. Lapua cartridge cases are known for unprecedented quality of construction, using only the finest raw materials and superior annealing processes. Each case is machined to exacting dimensions with longevity that is unmatched by other cartridge case manufacturers.
Neary stated, “Lapua cases are the foundation in which our competition hand loads are built upon. When competing at the highest levels against the most talented shooters in the world, we need the absolute best components available. There’s no doubt Lapua helped secure the Gold for Team USA.”
The next World Benchrest Championship will be held in Fall of 2021 in South Africa.
