Junior shooters shone and got the Gold using batch selected ELEY tenex.
Two junior shooters came to test at our USA range; they were in preparation for the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (NJOSC). Both were focused and wanting to win at the NJOSC and so they worked with our USA Customer range officer to get a great batch of ammunition for their barrel and it really paid off!
On the 22nd of April, Elizabeth March (16) competed in the Three Position Rifle Women’s event at the NJOSC and really took the competition by storm. She beat her nearest opponent by an impressive 12.1 points and got a final score of 459.3, which is 3.5 points better than the current Junior World Record!
Elizabeth has a lot going for her, not only by choosing to use using batch selected ELEY tenex but Olympic Medal winner and ELEY sponsored shooter Matt Emmons is her mentor. She will definitely be one to watch!

Following this on the 5th of May Jacob Buchanan (17) won the Gold in the Men’s Three Position competition. This was his second Gold medal of the NJOSC, the first he won in the Men’s Prone event. Winning two Gold medals at the NJOSC is very rare and is an exceptionally impressive result! We’ll be keeping an eye out for Jacob at future events following this incredible performance.

Both junior shooters, Elizabeth and Jacob had tested ELEY tenex at our USA range shortly before winning these events, truly demonstrating how advantageous testing ELEY tenex can be for competitive club and junior shooters alike.
After winning the Men’s 3P Jacob dropped into our ELEY customer range on his way home from Colorado Springs to batch test some further ELEY tenex!
