Paul had to battle temperatures up to 100 degrees and wind gusts to 20 mph to win the finale, placing him in 2nd for the series.

“The 300 Grain Berger Hybrid OTM Tactical bullet propelled by Vihtavuori N565 powder proves to be consistent and matched up to Applied Ballistics PDM perfectly. This enabled me to impact every single target!”

Paul has been a member of Team Vihtavuori since 2014 and is currently ranked #1 in the King of 1 Mile.
