    Sniper King Match results

    Hi all,

    The 75th annual Sniper King match is in the books. Tacoma's Sniper King event, the oldest continuously awarded trophy in Benchrest, was held on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of July, 2019. Awarded annually since 1944, the winner receives the trophy based on the smallest 10 shot group shot at 200 yards.

    Our course of fire is 100 yd/200yd 10 shot groups on Friday, Saturday is all 200 yd 10 shot groups. Sunday is 200yd/100yd 5 shot groups.

    This year, Steve Kostanich beat them all with his .302" 10 shot group shot on Friday. Shooters had 15 opportunities to shoot that one small group.

    Congratulations to Eric Stanton for winning the Agg King trophy this year with a .2485" 10 shot agg @ 200.
    The Sam Wilson Trophy was taken by Eric Stanton , shooting an incredible 2 gun agg of .2210".
    Eric Stanton won the 10 shot unlimited grand agg with a .2146".
    Eric Stanton won the Double 200 10 shot unlimited grand agg with a .2596".
    Jeff Yost won the 5 shot unlimited grand agg on Sunday with a 1787".
    Smallest group award winners this weekend were:

    Steve Kostanich, Paul Holland, Jeff Lewis, Larry Boers, and Mark Walker!

    Congratulations to all the shooters. Great fun was had by all and lots of good info shared all weekend.

    Thanks to Matt Spradlin and Jeff Lewis who prepared the BBQ after the match on Saturday. Smoked Brisket and Pulled Pork were on the menu, It was incredible feast! Thank to to all who contributed side dishes and desserts.

    We surround ourselves with a terrific group of shooters and their families! Happy to call them friends.

    It was very nice to meet some of the shooters and their spouses that traveled from near and far to be here.

    And lastly, I`d like to bring your attention to the outstanding crew we have behind the scenes:

    Geoff Hallett, Jim Lynn, Karen Lynn, Zach Silverton, and Craig Kensler all played huge roles in our successful match.

    Thank you all,


    **Our next match in Tacoma will be August 3rd and 4th
