Great performance for John Schneiderbanger at the IPSC Canadian National Championship

The 2017 IPSC Canadian National Championship has come to a close and was a great match and a personal best for me!  It was a great Championship match which provided plenty of challenges to all competitors. I enjoyed shooting with a great group of guys in my squad. Congratulations to all of them for their success in this National match.
The XMetal Squad was there in force with 7 squad members who all did a fantastic job shooting and representing XMetal Targets. I finished 10th Overall in Standard Division and was 2nd Senior. I exceeded my goal in this National Championship! Many thanks to XMetal Targets for the support!!
It was great to meet the other XMetal Squad members and I look forward to seeing those who will be at Summer Slam XI in Dalhousie, New Brunswick in August.

Fantastic Sunday match for John Schneiderbanger!

 

“What a fantastic Sunday match we had! There was a lot of fast shooting in this 10 Stage match in 36C weather.

The guns were hot, the shooters were hot and so was the XMetal Squad! I managed a strong 4th overall finished in Standard Division.

This was an excellent warm-up match for the 2017 IPSC Canadian National Championship taking place in Calgary 17-24 July.”

4th place for John Schneiderbanger at the Brandon 2017 Steel Match

“What a great Sunday it was in Brandon, Manitoba! I shot my first steel match and placed 4th overall in Iron Sight Division. This was the very first match with my CZ Tactical Sport Orange .40 S&W. My reloads with XMetal Targets 180gr Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets worked great in my gun, striking every target accurately. XMetal Targets was a sponsor for this match and I was proud to represent them. The XMetal Targets stage was enjoyed by all competitors and many said the steel had a fantastic sound when hit! That feedback was music to my ears.”

Hi-Tek Supercoat Bullets – Facts and Reloading Tips (Video)

“Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets have many benefits which should really make you consider using them. The Hi-Tek Supercoat is extremely durable as it is baked on. In the case of XMetal Targets Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets, the coating is applied and baked on three times as part of the overall process. The coating does not rub off in your hands nor does it scratch off easily. The Hi-Tek Supercoat completely encapsulates the lead bullets.

Here are some of the benefits of the Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets:

– coating eliminates metal on metal contact in the barrel which reduces friction, increases bullet velocity and create less heat
– less friction and heat reduces barrel wear , increasing barrel life
– the coating acts as a lubricant which helps increase muzzle velocity and that means using less powder in the reload process to achieve your desired velocity or power factor.

Here is a review of the XMetal Targets classic mini poppers, by John Schneiderbanger, a member of the XMetal Squad:

“As I was training with my XMetal Targets classic mini poppers, I thought I would do a quick Range Review of the Classic Popper so to point out many of its outstanding features for those of you who have not had the pleasure of shooting at this extremely well designed target. For a small package, there is a lot of target in the Classic Mini Popper!”

IPSC Manitoba outdoor season opening match

Here is a review of the IPSC Manitoba outdoor season opening match, by XMetal Squad member John Schneiderbanger:

“What a fantastic IPSC Manitoba outdoor season opening match it was this past weekend!! The match consisted of 11 stages with a 179 round count. I finished as Top Senior and 2nd Overall in Standard Division. My Tanfoglio Limited Custom .40 S&W shooting my reloads with 220gr Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets by XMetal Targets performed exceptionally well. I can always count on my Limited Custom to give me an outstanding performance and the 220gr Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets to be consistent and accurate! Check out my video of a few of my stage wins! Thank you XMetal Targets for outstanding bullets!!”
