Halvor Thrane Svendsen, 200 / 300 m big bore and small bore shooter

Halvor is a big bore shooter from Norway who also enjoys shooting small bore and air rifle indoors. Shooting is something that runs in the family, as he grew up in a shooting family with his grandfather, father and big brother as active competition shooters. Halvor himself started shooting when he was 10 years old, and has been using Vihtavuori powders for 15 years. His favorite powder is N150 which he uses t reload his 6,5×55 ammo. In the summer months, Halvor reloads almost every week, as he competes multiple times a week and also tries to fit in training too. With that much competition, it’s important to be able to stay focused in every single match: “I use visualization to help me prepare for all challenges during a competition.” Halvor’s goal is is to compete with the best shooters in Norway and qualify to the last final (kongelaget) at the National Championships.
