Not long after his victory at the 2022 Koenig-Ruger Precision Rifle Competition, Team Berger’s Morgun King went on to win again at the National Rifle League Championship, held April 22-24 at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in Grand Junction, Colorado. Finishing this year’s competition with a final time of 62.91 and 149 match points, for the second year in a row King brought home both the NRL season and championship match titles.

At the 2021-22 NRL Season Championship, shooters competed in 18 different stages, tackling targets at distances ranging from 400 to 1,200 yards.

King was using the 6.5 mm Creedmoor loaded with Berger 6.5 mm 156-grain Elite Hunter bullets.

“Berger Bullets continue to do their job over and over again. Now, for the second year in a row, I have taken my 6.5 mm Creedmoor to the National Rifle League season championship and returned with both the championship match win and the season title,” King said in an article posted to the Berger website. “I believe Berger Bullets are the most consistent available, and I cannot think of a better way to prove that point than by winning back-to-back season titles. Obviously, a good bullet is not the only factor in winning, but a bullet that flies the same every time at every match all year, is an essential ingredient to the recipe for success.”
