Max Latulippe comments OPSL 2nd Ultimate Challenge

Max Latulippe won the first place in the Production division at the OPSL 2nd Ulimate challenge this weekend.

Here is what he had to say:

“We couldn’t have asked for a better week-end to shoot OPSL 2nd Ultimate Challenge than this. On top of the great temperature, the 14 badass Stages and a random guy called Eric Grauffel, we had the best Squad.

The day started for me with a Weak-Hand only stage, a Miss and few light strikes resulting in unnecessary reloads on short stages. I kept focus, fixed my gun, performed and executed on the medium/long stages and it really paid off on the long run. My day-to-day practice is coming together and I am really happy with my recent performances. Thanks to everyone who helped me get there; Alexandre Berdat, Remi Doucet, JPD, Jeremie Dancause, etc.

The Chronograph recorded an average of 897 fps (aim: 900) which is really consistent for me. I’ve been competing and practicing with the same loads, using the XMetal Targets 147g RN Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets and I couldn’t ask for a more reliable, consistent and accurate bullet. It shoots clean, and slide through my new barrel like butter. I can’t be grateful enough for the support XMetal Targets is providing me…

The summer is unfortunately already over, but those back-to-back LVL 3 Wins will promote me to Grand Wizard and is an awesome way to end the outdoor season! See you on the range!”

Philippe Proulx

This weekend was taking place the 2017 Wild Bunch Championship hosted by the Wild Turkey Posse at the Grenville Fish and Game Club in Prescott, Ontario. Our Squad member, Philippe Proulx won first place in the Modern and Traditional category as well as the only Clean Match Shooter.

Here is what Philippe (Filthy Phil) had to say:

“For this match I used the 45-200gr rnfp for my winchester 1873 in 45 colt and in my 1911 I have shot the factory XMetal Targets .45 acp ammo, and I did managed to shoot a clean match…..in SASS it’s a match without misses and penalty. After that long day in the heat, burning sun and sweat it’s a great feeling to pull this match off. Thanks to the guy at Wild Turkey Posse to put on this match.”

SECOND PLACE SENIOR FOR JOHN SCHNEIDERBANGER AT THE SUMMER SLAM XI

“I had a great time at Summer Slam XI. The stages were fantastic and provided plenty of challenges! I achieved my goal of finishing in the Top 10 in Standard Division by finishing 9th overall and 2nd place Senior in Standard Division as well. It was great to see a number of the XMetal Squad members at Summer Slam XI and that the Squad did so well at the match.”

Great performance for Yves St-Laurent at the Summer Slam XI

“So, my 8th Summer Slam competition is in the book!! This is my best performance in a level 3 match. For this one, I did it in Classic Division with my STI Spartan 9mm. As usual, the bullet of choice was the 9mm-147gr Paragon from XMetal Targets. I finished the match in 2nd place. 12 match points, or 1%, behind the first place win by the 2016 national champion. A small mistake occur during my match and it cost me the win….We always learn!! Thanks again at XMetal Targets for their support! I’m really proud to be a part of the Xmetal Squad with this amazing group of shooters from coast to coast.

Here is the video of the match:
