This marks the third time in four years that a shooter behind an out-of-the-box HS.50 has won the Hunter Class Score 1,000-yard World Championship, where competitors engage their targets with bipod-mounted rifles from the prone position. The three other FCSA World Championships classes are contested from rests atop solid concrete benches. It is also the first time HS.50 shooters took the top two places, ahead of a class filled with—and once dominated by—custom rifles.
