Doug Koenig captures his fifth prestigious European Bianchi Cup title

Like dark red, Doug Koenig keeps getting better as we grow older.
Koenig, 43, formerly of Alburtis and today of Hamburg, just won his 15th Bianchi Cup ' much more than any professional shooter in the world.
At the recent European Bianchi Cup handgun shooting tournament held in Phillipsburg, Germany, Koenig shot a great score of 1920 and 182 center 'X' hits to win his fifth Euro Bianchi. That, after arriving late to Phillipsburg due to travel issues that forced him to shoot each event solo.
Aside from his custom 1911 pistol that's topped which has a Leupold scope, Koenig used hand loaded 110 grain, JHP/XTP 38 Special Hornady ammo. Said Koenig in the Hornady announcement, 'I require the best, most accurate ammo and Hornady XTPs are tack drivers.'
The Euro Bianchi Cup contains shooting Practical, Barricade, Falling Plates and Moving Target stages, each with 6 shots taken at various distances under a strict 6-second time restriction.
The European Bianchi Cup is patterned as soon as the legendary Bianchi Cup located in the United States, which he won 15 times. In fact that win was televised earlier this Wednesday on the Outdoor Channel's Shooting USA program ' that may be 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 second place competitor finished 466 points.
'The Masters tests a shooters precision, long range and action handgunning skills,' according to Neal Emery, Hornady Communications Manager. And as for your Master's win, Koenig said, 'Nothing else tests your skills much like the Masters. I've been competing with this match since 1988 and winning never gets easier.' It's certain Hornady ammo helped the cause.
