bushnell®an industry leader in performance optics, in conjunction with RCBS®the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, congratulates professional shooter Robert Brantley on taking first place in the Tactical Division at the 2023 K&M Kahles Sniper Rifle Competition. Brantley, who used an Elite Tactical XRS3 scope to secure victory, he has now won Top Tactical at back-to-back PRS events.
“This year’s match was incredibly tough, with a lot of relentless targeting with any scope that doesn’t track or hold zero,” Brantley said. “However, with the Elite Tactical XRS3 these things weren’t an issue and the G4P reticle allowed me to easily lock onto smaller targets. The motion holds on the G4P also lined up perfectly, making the three stages with moving targets a light job.”
Brantley, who opted to use a new competition kit chambered for .308, mounted the rifle with a new telescopic sight three weeks before the game. Despite not having used either the rifle or the scope in competition, his confidence remained high.
“I enjoy shooting the .308 as it doesn’t mask any of your flaws and forces you to stay at it,” Brantley said. “You have to hit your wind calls, manage recoil and account for the drop of the heaviest load. When shooting Tac, my goal is to always try to finish in the top ten of the Open winner. Having a quality team that you can trust makes this a possibility.”
Brantley also relied on his RCBS reload setup to get ready for the match, including his Rock Chucker.® Supreme Press, MatchMaster Dies, Bench Primer, Case Prep Center, Chargemaster Supreme Powder Dispenser, and Ultrasonic Case Cleaner.
“My RCBS reload setup is great because it helps me tailor my ammo to my exact needs,” Brantley said. “I have more control over every detail, so I can trust my ammunition to be consistent and accurate.”
