Posted By admin on July 26, 2016
Ruckersville, VA. – Ashbury Precision Ordnance Mfg and Leupold Optics Custom Shop have partnered to sponsor the youth precision rifle team organized and supported byJunior Shooters magazine. Ashbury’s continuing demonstrated commitment to growing shooting sports by sponsoring emerging women and youth athletes is highlighted in this new multi-year relationship with Junior Shooters magazine. Leupold Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer of shooting sports optics, recognized this arrangement as a positive way to increase brand awareness among new shooters and demonstrate the cutting edge capabilities of the Leupold Custom Shop.
Ashbury outfitted the Junior Shooters Youth Precision Rifle Team with a fleet of APO SuperSport 6.5 Creedmoor competition rifles custom built on APO Custom Shop blueprinted and trued Remington M700 receivers by APO’s former US Marine Corps 2112 Gunsmiths lead team. The sub <1/2MOA accurate SuperSport 6.5CM competition rifles feature single stage triggers set to 3.0 lbs, and Pinnacle Series 22″ barrels with Thruster muzzle brakes. The precision manufactured barreled actions are mounted in Ashbury’s patented SABER® SuperSport MOD-1 alloy series modular rifle chassis system with a 20 MOA monolithic rail, and M-LOK accessories enhanced forend. The competition-centric TASS shoulder stock with custom Limbsaver recoil pad is ergonomically adjustable and easily fits all the youth shooters perfectly, no matter their size!
Leupold’s Custom Shop pulled out the stops for the youth shooting team and built custom VX-6 3-18x50mm rifle scopes for their new rifles. These premium Leupold rifle scopes have 0.1 MRADb adjustments with a double turn elevation turret, zero lock and matching TMR reticle. These 2nd focal plane optics are lightweight, crystal clear and incredibly bright in low light shooting conditions. “Leupold’s Custom Shop wanted to give every optical advantage to the Junior Shooter magazine rifle team,” said Nicholas Kytlica Custom Shop Supervisor. “The VX-6 3-18×50 is one of Leupold’s most advanced designs which will pair well with APO’s Supersport competition rifles. With 22 mils of elevation in a double-turn turret set-up, they can easily drive their 6.5 Creedmoor rifles to 1000 yards or better, common in today’s practical rifle competitions, so they will certainly be competitive!”
“We greatly appreciate the commitment to supporting our youth precision rifle team by Ashbury and Leupold,” said Andrew Fink, Publisher & CEO of Junior Shooters magazine. “To preserve and grow shooting sports in the United States, Junior Shooters strives to promote the responsible and positive aspects of marksmanship competition and hunting which have a long proud legacy in our great nation”
The SuperSport 6.5 Creedmoor competition rifles, complete with VX-6 rifle scope mounted in Talley scope rings, weighed in at 13.5 lbs. Additionally, the youth shooting team also received Slip-Cuff Shooting Slings donated by Tactical Intervention Specialists for positional rifle shooting stages.
