Melissa Gilliland was named the Top Lady and placed 4th overall at the Accuracy International Long Range Classic. This annual competition was held at Altus Shooting Solutions in Baker, Florida. There, Gilliland dominated a challenging course in high winds and cold temperatures. She started off strong and stayed amongst the top scorers throughout the two-day match. Gilliland said, “Even with the high winds and frigid temperatures, this year’s match was an absolute blast. I was beyond excited to walk away with a 4th place overall finish and the Top Lady award against a talented field of competitors.”

Gilliland used the new Bushnell Elite Tactical DMR3 scope with G4P reticle to achieve her success. She also relies on RCBS reloading tools and Hoppe’s cleaning products to keep her equipment in tip-top condition. She said, “My gear ran great from start to finish and the new Elite Tactical DMR3 continues to impress with its outstanding glass clarity and generous eyebox.”

The new Elite Tactical DMR3 riflescope adds an all-new floating dot reticle, multi-position Throwhammer magnification lever, a 25-yard parallax and bold turret markings to their tried-and-true platform. At the close of the competition, Gilliland said, “Hats off to all the competitors, ROs and match staff. I can’t wait to be back next year.”
