At the 25th anniversary of the Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match last month, Team Federal shooters performed admirably. The match was held at the Rio Salado Sportsman's Club in Mesa, Ariz. This large event brings together the nation’s top 3-gun shooters and is one of the the longest running multi-gun matches in the country.

How well did Team Federal shooters perform? Well for starters, Dakota Overland and Josh Froelich did quite well. Overland won High Junior and High Lady in the Tactical 3-Gun division with her final time of 623.42 seconds, while Froelich finished in fourth place in the Open division with a final time of 528.41 seconds.

“This competition was ideal for testing equipment and shooting skills with a mix of long-range targets along with close-up, fast-paced shooting requirements. Shooters really had to have their gear and skills tuned in for this match,” said Froelich. “I was dialed in with Federal Premium 73-grain Gold Medal Berger in my rifle and 130-grain Federal Syntech in my pistol.”

Tony Holmes earned High Senior honors and also took 14th place in Open with his final time of 588.07 seconds. He was quick to give his Federal ammunition credit for success at the Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match this year.

“I run Federal American Eagle .223 Rem. ammo with the 55-grain FMJ bullet in my rifle and Federal Premium Gold Medal Grand Handicap loads in my 12-gauge,” said Holmes. “My .38 Super handloads utilize Federal components. All my ammo functioned to perfection, as usual.”

With a final time of 1175.44 seconds, Alysia Burrows secured High Lady honors in the Stealth 2-Gun category. She also commented on how Federal ammunition was crucial for her match success.

“The 69-grain .223 Rem. Gold Medal rounds worked fantastically well. We had to shoot moving C-zone steel at 300 yards and static steel ranging out to 500 yards. It’s nice to have ammunition that you can depend on to get the job done,” said Burrows. “Syntech Action Pistol rounds ran flawlessly as well and kept our guns running without having to stop and clean them mid-match.”
