John on the firing line during the 25 meter match

John Reimers shot a 190-1X at 100 yards to win the 2015 Extreme Benchrest in Mesa, Arizona on October 4th.

To reach the finals John shot two third place scores (226-5X and 227-4X) at 75 yards on the 2nd and 3rd to qualify. On both days, he came in third, but on the final day when the targets were moved to 100 yards he shot three points ahead of Noah Sever’s 187-1X second place score. Irwin Segerman shot a 183-0X for third place.

The same 5 ⅛ inch targets with ½ inch ten rings were used at 75 and 100 yards. The X count reflects hits on a 3/16 inch circle within the ten ring. Hits on the X ring are used to break ties.
