From Steyr Arms - Steyr HS.50 Shooters Take First and Second in Hunter Class at the FCSA World Championships

Walter Wilkinson recaptures the Hunter Class score world championship this year with a total score of 283-7X Bessemer, Alabama - Walter Wilkinson and Eduardo A. de Fontcuberta proved once again that the Steyr HS.50 is the world’s most accurate factory production .50 BMG bolt-action rifle by placing first and second, respectively, in the Hunter Class at the Fifty Caliber Shooters’ Association World Championships held July 3rd through 5th at the NRA Whittington Center near Raton, NM.

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.
