Shooting USA - Hornady Precision Hunting Challenge
The challenge is for precision rifle shooters at distances only possible in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, with steel targets sized to simulate the vitals of western game animals. Plus, new hunting choices in ammo and firearms. And the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association welcomes today’s modern in-line muzzleloaders to test their skill in long range hunting competition. Byron Ferguson has an Impossible Shot you’ve never seen. And a Pro Tip from the Army Marksmanship Unit for hunters on Point Blank Zero.
Hornady's Precision Hunter Challenge
The Hornady Precision Hunter Challenge is a one of a kind test created for hunters by hunters, set in the 2000 acres of natural terrain at the Cameo Shooting and Education center. There are 20 unique courses of fire that will determine who is best among the 135 who’ve shown up to compete. The sum total of challenges involved in this match are designed to test all of the aspects of a hunter’s skill.
Just about every, practical shooting sport is derived from training. But for the hunter, there really hasn’t been a sport established that combines spot and make a shot with scoring to determine who among a group is best on any given day. Scott Satterlee intends to change that with the Hornady Precision Hunter Challenge. We’re headed to the western slope of Colorado for the story with nearly 140 marksmen who have made the journey to the Cameo Shooting and Education complex just outside Grand Junction Colorado. Most of these competitors are experienced hunters. But this weekend they are chasing a different kind of trophy. This is the first outing for a new training sport designed to put hunters to the test. Scott Satterly is the Match Director. He says, ”This is as close as it can get to mountain hunting. We have vital sized targetry out there. They are 12 inch squares turned to diamond which are really difficult to hit.”

Cameo Shooting and Education Complex
The format of this hybrid shooting sport requires a facility with natural terrain. The Cameo Shooting and Education Complex has that covered, but there is so much more to this brand-new state-of-the-art facility. It really is an unforgettable location, with postcard views in every direction.

Hornady Hunting Ammo
The diverse catalogue of Hornady ammunition covers just about every facet of shooting, from self-defense, to competition, and especially hunting. The innovation began in the 40’s and has not stopped since, and today there are more offerings at more price-points in the Hornady line-up than ever. We’re on The GA Precision private range to see the newest offerings for hunters where Jason Hornady says it’s all about the bullet, “For us it started with the bullet. And then obviously the bullet progressed into the ammunition. And for us the bullet still makes the cartridge.That’s the big deal.”
