Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear sport optics, is pleased to announce that its Pro Shooters dominated the 2022 Koenig-Ruger Precision Rifle Competition, held April 9-10 at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in Colorado. Eight of the top 15 finishers were Leupold team members, while Pro Shooters Morgun King, Jake Millard, and Matt Alwine finished first, second, and third, respectively.

The Koenig-Ruger match is part of the Precision Rifle Series, and an AG Cup Qualifying Event that was open to all prospective competitors. The course of fire was spread over approximately 3.5 miles, with target engagements ranging between 300 and 1,200 yards. It is hosted by fellow Leupold Pro Shooter and world champion competitive shooter Doug Koenig.

“The Precision Rifle Series challenges shooters physically and mentally. One mistake could cost you the event,” Koenig said. “The stages at the Koenig-Ruger match were designed to push competitors to their limits, and the Leupold team overcame each and every hurdle we threw at them.”

In addition to King’s overall win, Millard’s score won the Junior Division, while Alwine’s placed him tops among Production Division shooters. Team member Bill Allison, meanwhile, finished first in the Senior Division.

“It was an amazing team performance,” King said. “Each year on this series the field has gotten larger, and the competition has gotten tougher. Seeing eight Leupold shooters in the top 15 is a testament to the level of performance these optics deliver. It’s why so many guys are running Leupold on the line, event after event.”

All Team Leupold competitors shot the Mark 5HD riflescope. The Mark 5HD has been crafted to redefine accuracy, precision, and optical performance for long-range shooters. Pick one up and you’ll feel the difference: it’s up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. Get behind one and you’ll see the difference, from its superior edge-to-edge clarity to its extreme low-light performance. With three revolutions of elevation adjustment, the Mark 5HD was made to max out the performance of the latest long-range rifles and ammunition. It features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions, industry-leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional guides and shooters demand in the field.

King and many of his teammates have been using Mark 5HD models that feature Leupold’s PR2-MIL reticle. Developed with input from the country’s top competitors and professional shooters, the PR2 reticles are specifically designed for long range speed and precision. Two styles are available: the PR2-MIL and the PR2-MOA. They are available in Leupold’s Mark 5HD line, in both a 5-25x and 7-35x configuration. Designed to excel in competition, the PR2-MIL reticle puts the best possible long-range competition reticle in the best long-range competition riflescope on the market.
