From Pennsylvania to Mississippi, Kunkel has been ringing steel and placing in top podium positions.
ANOKA, Minnesota – September was a month to remember for CCI & Federal Ammunition sponsored shooter Grant Kunkel. From Pennsylvania to Mississippi, Kunkel has been ringing steel and placing in top podium positions.
Kunkel, an 18 year old from Story, Arkansas, began the month at the East Coast Steel Championships held at the Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club near New Tripoli, PA. Competing in eight events with five-hundred competitors, Kunkel finished runner-up in six of those competitions and claimed a first place in the Rimfire Rifle Optic match shooting CCI’s Clean-22 High Velocity 22LR. “My CCI Clean HV ammunition from CCI kept my guns clean and running great,” said Kunkel.
Kunkel kept his winning ways going at the Mississippi State Steel Challenge held at the Brothers N Arms Range in Hattiesburg, MS last weekend. Competing in five events and against nearly 300 competitors, Kunkel finished first in Rimfire Rifle Optic, Rimfire Rifle Iron, Rimfire Pistol Optic, PCC Iron, and Carry Optics and finished High Overall. “I was pleased to have earned a high overall win at the 2019 Mississippi State Steel Championship,” continued Kunkel.
Kunkel relied on CCI’s Clean-22 High Velocity 22LR ammunition for the rimfire competitions and Federal’s Syntech Action Pistol ammunition in the handgun matches. “It’s great to know that I can always count on my ammo to perform when it matters,” he said.
