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!”

Max Latulippe who joined Xmetal Targets Squad recently just won his very first title in IPSC! He won first place in the production division at the IPSC Quebec 2017 Provincial Championship. The Xmetal Targets team was convinced he had lots of potential, so we are not surprised that he wins such a distinction. We are glad he joined our team and wish him the best for the next season!

“IPSC QC Provincials is wrapped up ! Shot a very safe match, to win the 1st place in Production Division. Special thanks to my sponsor XMetal Targets for all the support !

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:

Summer Fun 2017 FRPC, Kingston Ontario

“Last week my 6th Summer Fun at FRPC in Kingston, Ontario. I did to many mistake to achive my goal, but at least, I know on what to focus for my next practice before the National in Alberta!

My ammo for this match was a little bit too hot, I got a power factor of 136, an average speed of about 935fps. But the velocity and precision of the ammo was very consistant. Still using the “Paragon 9mm-147gr RN” from XMETAL TARGETS.

Thank you very much for their huge support ans also for their support in the IPSC sport. XMETAL TARGETS was a sponsor for the Manitoba provincial, their will be a sponsor for the National and IPSC Quebec.”
