This year at Camp Atterbury, the Palma Team Matches were held Tuesday, July 17 with 11 teams shooting Palma rifles and two teams shooting service rifles. Teams consist of four firing members and a team captain and coach. Teams shoot prone at distances of 800, 900 and 1000 yards.

Since 2012, the Cowboy Trophy has been awarded to the winning team in the Palma Team Matches using Palma rifles in the NRA National High Power Rifle Long Range Championships. The Cowboy Trophy was donated to the NRA in 2012 by our friends at Palma Productions. The trophy is a Remington bronze cowboy riding his steed, mounted on a black walnut base. It's a beautiful trophy that conveys the majesty of the old west.

Match conditions on Palma Team day at Camp Atterbury were sunny with clear skies, with winds at about 5 mph.
