BEAVERTON, Ore. —-(Ammoland.com)- Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is pleased to announce that Pro Shooter Doug Koenig won first place in the Production Class at the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) Pro Series Finale, held at the K&M Shooting Complex in Finger, Tenn., Nov. 15-17. Koenig’s finish at the finale also won him the 2019 season’s Production Class Championship.
He finished 32nd overall in the full field, which included more than 150 of the world’s best Open Class shooters.
The PRS Production Division requires competitors to shoot the course with a combined rifle and optic MSRP, as listed on the company’s website, not exceeding $4,000. The rifle and scope must individually be valued at less than $2,000. Koenig runs a Leupold VX-3i LRP riflescope on a Ruger Precision Rifle when competing in Production matches. Open Class competitors face no such restrictions.
“Events on the PRS circuit present an incredible challenge, both for the shooter and the rig he’s running,” Koenig said. “The performance I got out of my VX-3i LRP and Ruger Precision Rifle this year was amazing, and a true testament to the relentless, match-grade performance that they’re both capable of right out of the box.”
The VX-3i LRP 6.5-20×50 that Koenig uses features Leupold’s CCH (Combat, Competition, Hunter) reticle, and has been purpose-built to deliver the performance that competitive shooters need. The LRP (Long Range Precision Riflescope) line features magnification ranges of 4.5-14×50, 6.5-20, and 8.5-25, all with 50mm objective lenses and available in both milliradian and MOA configurations.
Koenig’s LRP helped him navigate the Finale’s 20 stages, shot from 12 different ranges and over 50 different firing positions. The course of fire was designed to test and train
