The 2022 Bushnell Tactical GAP Grind PRO AM was held at K&M Shooting Complex in Finger, TN, September 29th – October 1st. The match tested each competitor’s ability to engage an assortment of steel, reactive, paper and automated targets at over 20 unique stages out to 1,200 yards. Shooters competed individually as well as two-person team setting which paired a pro and amateur together. During the team event, Colon competed with Lilly Knapp and scored 342 to secure first place. Heckler and his teammate, Jacob Strutt, brought home second place.

Both Colon and Hecker shoot the 6mm Dasher cartridge with Vihtavuori N150 rifle powder, known for being one of the most clean-burning, and temperature insensitive powders.
