Marksmanship unit continues strong showing in Ohio

NRA Navy Cup match is shot in the standing position at 200 yards

Port Clinton, Ohio - Today's NRA High Power National Championship started this morning with the Navy Cup Match. The Navy Cup is shot from the standing position at 200 yards. Competitors and their rifles are allowed two shots for sighting before taking the next twenty shots for record.

Last year's High Power champ Carl Bernosky took the 2011 Navy Cup title with a score of 199-5x. Following yesterday's results, Bernosky will have a fight on his hands for this year's Cup as shooters from the United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) are poised to make a claim of their own.
