Team Berger’s Justin Skaret secured the Service Rifle division title at the 2022 Colorado State High Power Rifle Championship, held July 1-3 by the Buffalo Creek Gun Club in Bailey, Colorado. In addition to his service rifle win, Skaret placed second in the grand aggregate.

The course-of-fire saw competitors shooting 20 rounds in slow-fire prone (22 minutes) at 600 yards, followed by two 10-round strings of rapid-fire prone (60 seconds each) at 300 yards. The match concluded with 20 rounds of slow-fire standing shooting at 200 yards, along with a pair of 10-round strings rapid-fire in the sitting position at 200 yards.

Skaret competes with a .223 Rem.-chambered service rifle using Lapua .223 cases, Berger 77-grain open-tip match bullets (200 and 300 yards), Berger 80-grain VLDs (600 yards) and Vihtavuori N135 and N140 powders.

He gave high praise to his Berger bullets for the Service Rifle division victory at the Colorado State High Power Championship. “I have been shooting the Berger 77-grain OTM and the 80-grain VLD for almost 20 years in High Power Service Rifle competitions and they continue to provide me a competitive advantage,” said Skaret. “The 80-grain VLDs cut through the fish tailing 600-yard winds with ease.”
