Team Lapua member, Philip Hemphill, scored a 888-49X to bring home the 2019 NRA .22 Caliber Pistol Championship. Hemphill uses Lapua Center-X .22LR Rimfire ammunition, known for its uncompromising quality and dominating results in .22 caliber disciplines such as Smallbore, PRC Silhouette, new ELR and more.

The NRA National Pistol Championship, known as the “World Series of Shooting Sports,” took place July 7-12th at Camp Perry, Ohio. Since 1907 the nation’s finest marksmen and women come together at Camp Perry and shoot off in a variety of handgun competition formats and events.

“It’s an honor to be able to come out here and test my shooting skills in one of the longest-running pistol events in the nation. My whole team, Team Zero, shoots Lapua Center-X, because we know it will outperform all other .22 caliber competition ammo,” said Hemphill.

Along with receiving the Walker Trophy Plaque for winning the Championship, Hemphill also won the NRA Precision Pistol Championship – Police Division, and came in 3rd in the 22 Caliber Slow Fire Match with a score of 194-9X.
