With a final score of 98, Jorge Ortiz is the winner of the fifth annual Nightforce ELR Steel Challenge. The 2020 Nightforce ELR Steel Challenge was held June 13-14 at Tillard 55 Ranch in Glenrock, WY. Nearly 200 shooters engaged targets from 700 yards to 2,100 yards (1.2 miles), facing challenging conditions including wind gusts up to 60 mph.

Ortiz was running Berger .30-caliber 220-grain Long Range Hybrid Target (LRHT) bullets through his Accuracy International ASR platform chambered in .300 Norma Mag. to secure the victory.

Ortiz gave high praise to the reliably consistent, high-BC Berger LRHT projectiles for helping him achieve the win. A high BC is important for competitive shooting, however, shot-to-shot consistency is most critical when engaging targets to 1,000 yards and beyond. 

“When it comes to Berger Bullets, especially the LRHT line, the consistency shows both during the measurements and downrange at the target,” said Ortiz. “I simply selected Berger’s default G7 BC within my Kestrel 5700 Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics and was on target for the match.”
