Doug Koenig captures his fifth prestigious European Bianchi Cup title

Like dark red, Doug Koenig keeps getting better as they age.
Koenig, 43, formerly of Alburtis now of Hamburg, just won his 15th Bianchi Cup ' a lot more than any professional shooter on the globe.
At the recent European Bianchi Cup handgun shooting tournament locked in Phillipsburg, Germany, Koenig shot an ideal score of 1920 and 182 center 'X' hits to win his fifth Euro Bianchi. That, after arriving late to Phillipsburg as a result of travel problems that forced him to shoot each event solo.
Aside from his custom 1911 pistol that's topped having a Leupold scope, Koenig used hand loaded 110 grain, JHP/XTP 38 Special Hornady ammo. Said Koenig in a very Hornady announcement, 'I require the best, most accurate ammo and Hornady XTPs are tack drivers.'
The Euro Bianchi Cup contained shooting Practical, Barricade, Falling Plates and Moving Target stages, each with 6 shots taken at various distances with a strict 6-second time restriction.
The European Bianchi Cup is patterned following the legendary Bianchi Cup located in the United States, that they won 15 times. In fact that win was televised the 2009 Wednesday for the Outdoor Channel's Shooting USA program ' which is often viewed online.
But the European Bianchi isn't Koenig's only win in 2010. He won his 20th Open Division Masters International Shooting Championship held Aug. 8 at PASA Park in Barry, Illinois, where he shot enough bulls-eyes to garner 582 points for any prefect 300 percent. As a comparison, the next place competitor finished with 466 points.
'The Masters tests a shooters precision, long range and action handgunning skills,' according to Neal Emery, Hornady Communications Manager. And as to the Master's win, Koenig said, 'Nothing else tests your talent much like the Masters. I've been competing within this match since 1988 and winning never gets easier.' It's certain Hornady ammo helped the main cause.
