The competition season for long range rifles has just started and Sabatti is winning already.

The annual competition of the “Armi e Tiro” hunters’ circuit has just taken place in Rondò di Morca, in the Val Sesia Valley (VC): 200 m. on 6 targets (and 1 as a warm up)

Our Denis Cretier shot in the Varmint Hunter Rifle Category with a Sabatti Hunter competition rifle in cal. 223 and multi-radial MMR barrel.

Denis said: “I find the rifling profile to be absolutely fantastic and incredibly precise.

It is also easy to clean, as the copper residues are minimal. My rifle has shot approximately 1,000 rounds and its shot patterns are getting more and more consistent.

I scored a winning 50 and 1 bull’s eye. I did that in the first series after two warm up shots. Afterwards, I shot three more circuit series scoring a 49 and 1 bull’s eye, a 48 and a 47.

My rifle has a Nikon Monarch 3 6-24×50 scope. After the competition in Vicenza, I loaned my Sabatti Hunter competition rifle to my friend and team member Fausto Aimonimo who shot the hunting category in Albettone.

Fausto won 2nd place with a total score of 192 points in the “Armi e Tiro” score list. I shot cartridges made with Lapua brass, a Federal 205 primer, a Sierra mk 69 g. and with 22 g. of Vv No. 133. This was a lethal combination!

The competition season has just started, but Sabatti barrels with our patented MRR (Multi Radial Rifling) system, mounted on Denis’ long range rifle, have already proven to be the right choice.

The Sabatti MRR patent was originally meant for bigger caliber long range rifles, but it is doing exceptionally well with smaller calibers too like the one of his long range rifle.

Thank you Denis and keep up the good work!
