Gunnison, Utah – Christensen Arms, manufacturer of state-of-the-art precision firearms and custom carbon fiber barrels, is proud to announce that their sponsored pro shooter, Bennie Cooley, will compete in the inaugural season of the National Rifle League (NRL) Hunter Series. The NRL Hunter Series is a set of competitions for hunters by hunters. It brings together ethical hunters and conservationists in an innovative and competitive format.

Cooley is a highly competitive shooter that has won numerous world and national 3 Gun championships. These days, you’ll find Cooley in the precision/long-range shooting game, sitting behind one of Christensen’s premium firearms. He also finds time to teach private groups of competition shooters and law enforcement personnel via his training company.

“We’re excited to have Bennie participating in this new style of rifle competition,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms. “Cooley will have an advantage by using our Modern Precision Rifle (MPR) chambered in 6.5 PRC. It’s as if the MPR was built for the NRL Hunter Series and we can’t wait to see what he can do with this amazing rifle.”

The MPR is an ultra-lightweight chassis rifle designed to break with tradition. Beyond the folding stock, the complete package is well-equipped with a target contour Christensen Arms carbon fiber barrel, carbon fiber comb, free-floating carbon fiber handguard and a 20 MOA rail. The action and stainless steel side-baffle muzzle brake are finished in Black Nitride™ for a sleek look. The MPR weighs in starting at 6.9 pounds and is backed by the Christensen Arms Sub-MOA Guarantee.

“I cannot stress enough how well this series matches up for the Christensen Arms MPR,” said Bennie Cooley, Christensen Arms’ professional shooter. “The MPR will be a driving force in this series and is certain to dominate it. I can’t wait to get out there and unleash the precision of this incredible rifle!”

The 2021 season of the NLR Hunter Series will have 9 different hunting style matches with the championship match being held August 2-8, 2021 in Grand Junction, Colorado. To find out more about Cooley and his winning ways, please visit:
