The Conard Bernhardt Silhouette Championship was hosted by the Pe Ell Sportsman’s Club on April 23-24th in Pe Ell, Washington. The two-day match had competitors from all over the US, Canada, and Mexico shooting four, 40-round smallbore (22LR) relays. For each relay, shooters engaged ten chickens at 40 meters, ten pigs at 60 meters, ten turkeys at 77 meters and ten rams at 100 meters.
Mietenkorte stated, “Winning the championship where I began my competitive shooting journey was a very special moment. That moment would not have been possible without the incredible SK rimfire ammunition products.”
Mietenkorte will compete next month at the Long Invitational Champions in Cranbrook, British Columbia, in both smallbore and high-power silhouette.
