Hornady® Manufacturing congratulates Jerry Miculek for outstanding back-to-back wins at the FNH USA 3-Gun Championships, and the IDPA US National Championships. As competition season winds down, Miculek’s momentum is still going strong.
Set in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, Peacemaker National Training Center hosted the FNH match held September 17-21, 2013, attracting 350 competitors from 35 states and Canada. Match Director Larry Houck designed nine challenging stages of fire. Competitors had the option of choosing handgun, rifle or shotgun at each stage.
Miculek shot Hornady® 9mm 147 grain FMJ bullets in his pistol, and Hornady® 22 caliber 60 grain V-MAX® bullets in his rifle. “Both bullets are extremely accurate and performed well at the seven-yard paper targets, and flawlessly at the flat steel targets set to 391 yards,” he said.
Continuing his dominating reign in IDPA, Jerry Miculek won the Enhanced Service Revolver Division shooting Hornady® 230 grain FMJ 45 caliber bullets at the 2013 IDPA US National Championships, September 19-22, 2013. The US Shooting Academy in Tulsa, Oklahoma drew over 330 competitors from 32 states and 10 foreign countries. Match Director John May created 17 stages of fire composed of tight shots around non-threats, and included generous use of nearby hard cover to provide ample time for competitors to recover between stages.
“This was the most accuracy-oriented IDPA Nationals ever,” said Miculek. “The round nose profile of the Hornady 45 caliber bullets create a fast reload in my revolver. That allows me to focus on the basics; sight picture and follow through on the trigger.”
Neal Emery, Hornady communications manager said, “Jerry’s a multi-disciplined competitor that has found great success shooting a variety of our bullets and ammo, whether it’s for his revolver, pistol or rifle. We’re proud of his winning results.”
