USA Shooting and Eley will once again join forces as U.S. competitive shooters prepare for the Paris 2024 Olympics and beyond.

Eley on Thursday announced the renewal of a long-term partnership with USA Shooting, the national governing body for Olympic shooting sports in the United States. The contract will see athletes compete with Eley ammunition at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, along with the Los Angeles 2028 Games. And with an International Shooting Sport Federation schedule packed with competitions prior to the Paris 2024 Olympics, U.S. shooting athletes will have several opportunities to display their prowess on the firing line.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of the NRA Foundation awarding USA Shooting a $252,000 grant towards ammunition for the shotgun team.

Eley’s Tenex cartridge has been a favorite for Olympic champions around the world since making its competitive shooting debut at the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games. That year, competitors shooting Tenex all garnered gold and silver medals in the .22 LR rifle and pistol events. Nearly 60 years later at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Tenex cartridges helped athletes secure six total medals—two each of gold, silver and bronze—raising Eley’s Olympic medal tally to an astounding 131.

“The USA Shooting Team is a perfect partner for our ‘Choice of Champions’ value,” said Eley Marketing Director Michael Atkinson in a press release. “It is an honor to again be working with the dynamic USA Shooting Team. As in past years, we will continue to inspire and help people reach their competitive shooting goals, surpass their potential and enhance their enjoyment of participation in shooting sports. Our products allow target shooters at Club, World and Olympic levels to realize their potential and win. We produce technically superior ammunition, whilst providing an excellent service to target shooters throughout the world.”

USA Shooting is thrilled about the commitment from Eley through the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Eley’s partnership continues to play a vital role in the success of USA Shooting’s rifle and pistol athletes in international, Olympic and Paralympic competitions,” said USA Shooting Chief Marketing Officer Buddy DuVall. “Having Eley as a long-term partner will ensure that our athletes have world-class Eley Tenex ammunition and Eley testing facilities for matching the best possible ammo to each team member’s rifle or pistol. Winning at the highest levels of international competition demands shooting the most accurate and reliable ammunition possible, that’s what Eley delivers for USA Shooting.”
