Doug Koenig captures his fifth prestigious European Bianchi Cup title

Like deep red, Doug Koenig keeps getting better as they age.
Koenig, 43, formerly of Alburtis and after this of Hamburg, just won his 15th Bianchi Cup ' a great deal more than any professional shooter on the globe.
At the recent European Bianchi Cup handgun shooting tournament located in Phillipsburg, Germany, Koenig shot an ideal score of 1920 and 182 center 'X' hits to win his fifth Euro Bianchi. That, after arriving late to Phillipsburg as a result of travel conditions forced him to shoot each event solo.
Aside from his custom 1911 pistol that's topped which has a Leupold scope, Koenig used hand loaded 110 grain, JHP/XTP 38 Special Hornady ammo. Said Koenig in a very Hornady announcement, 'I have to have the best, most accurate ammo and Hornady XTPs are tack drivers.'
The Euro Bianchi Cup was comprised of shooting Practical, Barricade, Falling Plates and Moving Target stages, each with 6 shots taken at various distances within strict 6-second time restriction.
The European Bianchi Cup is patterned following the legendary Bianchi Cup locked in the United States, which he won 15 times. In fact that win was televised earlier this Wednesday for the Outdoor Channel's Shooting USA program ' that may be viewed online.
But the European Bianchi isn't Koenig's only win this year. He won his 20th Open Division Masters International Shooting Championship held Aug. 8 at PASA Park in Barry, Illinois, where he shot enough bulls-eyes to garner 582 points to get a prefect 300 percent. As a comparison, the other place competitor carried out with 466 points.
'The Masters tests a shooters precision, long range and action handgunning skills,' as outlined by Neal Emery, Hornady Communications Manager. And as for the Master's win, Koenig said, 'Nothing else tests your skills much like the Masters. I've been competing within this match since 1988 and winning never gets easier.' It's certain Hornady ammo helped the cause.

Both deals are extremely good to give up.
