ANOKA, Minnesota – September 18, 2020 – Federal Ammunition and Team Federal recently hosted its second annual Federal Gold Medal Match, a Precision Rifle Series Pro Series match, September 12-13, at Alabama Precision in Carbon Hill, Alabama.

Match Director, Jim Saunders, and his team presented a challenging course of fire for the PRS Pro Series Qualifier match which saw nearly 150 competitors battling heat, humidity and switching winds over the two days. Team Federal shooters Brian Allen and Shannon Kay both turned in strong performances with Kay finishing sixth overall and Allen finishing twelfth and earning the Top Senior trophy.

“This was a fantastic match. From the challenging course of fire to the support Federal showed the competitors, everything was top notch,” said Allan. “I’m proud to represent Team Federal and appreciate all their support for the precision rifle community.”

Greg Holloway, Ryan Hansen, Spence Pepper, Robert Brantley and Justin Pender all earned custom trophies for the top five shooters in the Open division. In addition to bringing home the coolest trophy on the entire PRS Pro Series circuit, Holloway also won a custom rifle built and presented by Team Federal’s own Brian Allen with A-Team Precision.

In other divisions, Ben Gossett earned the Top Military/Law Enforcement trophy for the second consecutive year. Phil Cashin of Masterpiece Arms won the trophy for the Production division. A strong performance from Melissa Gilliland earned her the Top Lady trophy. The Top Junior trophy went to Luke Holbrook. Finally, Mark Cooper used his .308 Win. to claim the Top Tactical trophy.

One highlight of the match came when Federal’s Shooting Sports Promotions Manager Jason Spradling and Phil Cashin from Masterpiece Arms presented a custom rifle to a deserving new shooter. The recipient, shooting his first match, was using a borrowed rifle and gear. He shot with a great attitude and showed excitement and passion for the sport.

“We at Federal recognize the importance of growing the competitive shooting sports and encouraging new shooters to be active participants,” said Spradling. “It was great to be able to present a gorgeous new MPA production rifle to a deserving new shooter.”
